SOURCE: Motherboard not recognizing RAM

If you're running XP SP2, that may be by design because of something Microsoft did in SP2.
Look at the following article for an explanation.

SOURCE: My HP dv5000 laptop has AMI BIOS beep code - 4 beeps

It sounds like either RAM or VIDEO problem to me. (I can't remember the specific beep sequence for AMI bios errors).

Hard to diagnose in Laptops.... if it was a desktop you can just start swapping out the RAM DIMMS..... are you techo enough to check whether you have 1 or 2 RAM cards installed? If 2 then run it with each card in turn to see if it boots (indicating 1 faulty RAM stick). If only 1 then try running MEMTEST on it to see if any errors. (I like HIRENS if you have it... I think it usually has latest MEMTEST on it).

If your cards all pass then its very likely a video problem. If its onboard video with no expansion slot (likely in a laptop) then you may be buggered.

Let me know if you need a hand doing any of the above.

The short then long beep error is indicative of a RAM memory issue. I had the same problem and had to use a process of elimination to determine the bad RAM. Place a RAM stick in slot 1 one at a time. The RAM stick(s) that give the short-long beep error are bad. If all RAM gives you the error it is more likely you have a bad board

Hello you can download the manual here:

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=5&s=13&m=P5BV-E%2fSAS&os=23&hashedid=zuljCoD6sSH3WpYx

By selecting your windows system.
Open the manual folder and click on global for download.
You need adobe reader to read the content.

This is usually a hardware problem, Video card, power supply, memory sticks or mother
board. To nail down the problem, try the following workarrounds:

1. Does this computer work well before? If yes, what new hardware did you install recently? Remove it and try.

2. Insert one ram module, and turn on the
computer, if the computer POSTs or you hear beeps, try to add one memory
stick each time until you add all your memory sticks.

3. Clear your CMOS by removing the battery or short the jumper.

4.
Swap your hardware from the motherboard, for example, reseating your ram sticks, move video card from PCI slot 1 to PCI slot 2, etc.

5. Reseat your processor, check the CPU for damage.

6. Verify that you have all the power connectors connected properly.

7. Make sure the power supply is working, even test it on another pc.

Remember
to restart your computer after you try any of the above steps. If all
the above does not work, it is very possible that your motherboard is
bad.

Just been given new tower with this motherboard so i added memory and drives but when turn on all i get is constant beeping.... what could it be


the RAM you have ut into your computer is faulty and causing the system to do a beeping noise by removing the ram stick you have put in will stop the beeping sound, Depending on how many ram sticks you have put in your computer it could be just a single faulty ram stick try removing them one by one and rebooting your system as it could be just the one, if after removing them one by one the sound still happens you will have to buy a new stick of ram to get your computer up and running, Let me know the outcome of this using the comment box , Kronoguy

The one long-two short beep code is for bad memory, not for a failed video card.
Shut down your computer, remove one stick of ram, reboot the computer, and repeat for each stick of ram, until you find the bad stick.

My pc doesn't boot anymore.


This code usually refers to a Video card or RAM issue. Try reseating both the video card and then RAM to see if it fixes the problem. If not then try removing the video card and rebooting. If the system starts without the beeps then you'll know the video card is bad and you can replace it. If it still beeps then try removing the RAM one stick at a time, rebooting after each removal. When it boots you'll have the bad RAM stick isolated and can replace. Hope this helps.

4 short beeps


4 short beeps indicates memory problems. Either the RAM modules are incompatible or they are faulty.
Are you trying to increase the total RAM if so use the same modules from the original manufacturer but larger capacity but the same speed.

One Short beep and two long beep


The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes. Sort of like a Morse code, if you know what that is. Every computer has it's own BIOS program, and version of that program. Each BIOS has it's own Beep Codes.

Taking a guess, as I don't know what BIOS program or version you have, it sounds like a ram memory issue.
Suggest you,

1.Unplug the computer

2.Open the computer case

3.TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve you body of Static electricity. Static will silently fry out your delicate computer hardware components. You won't see it or feel it.

4.Remove the ram stick/s. Reinstall the ram stick/s. (Stick/s means one ram stick, or two, three, or four ram sticks)

You may have just had a loose ram stick.
