Question about DFI Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an old motherboard (G4V100-P) and upon bootup I hear a series of beeps; beep-boop-beep-boop-beep-boop, continuously. I first thought it was the RAM but I replaced both sticks. Anyone have any suggestions?

remove your video card uninstall if you ugraded this and temporarily use the on board then switch on. this way you can determine if your motherboard is also having a problem if you hear a beep beep sound your ram memory shold be taken out clean it then transfer to other slot.

SOURCE: Continous Beeping sound

Hi neosw,

Could you provide a little more detail?

Was this a previously working set-up or is this a new build?

If this was a previously working set-up have you changed anything?

When you switch on the PC

  • do you see anything on the screen, does the monitor remain in standby?
  • are any of the fans running?
  • does the hard drive spin up?
  • does the beeping sound stop after a short while?
The reason I ask these questions is because a continues beeping usually means that the BIOS is not seeing the processor, or that the power to the processor is not correct. With some BIOS manufactures it can also mean the processor clock speed is not set
correctly.

Please don't take this the wrong way but...if you provide greater detail in your question, the easier it for us to diagnose your problem, otherwise we can only make educated guesses.

I hope this has been of some help.

Regards,

Spare head 2

Hey me too. Just bought a sata drive. I have the same mobo (AK86-L), and now the same problem. Updated the bios and SATA is enabled. Updated the driver. Tried both sata 1 and sata 2 connections on the mobo. It will not recognize the drive although it picks up that something is connected to the mobo. Its a WD Caviar 500 GB drive. Anyone have any thoughts?

SOURCE: New RAM, computer stays on intel screen and occasionally continually beeps

Hi DeezKelb, The continous beeps you are hearing is the Award bios telling you the memory is not seated correctly. Please remove the memory & re-seat the two DIMMS.
See Award bios beep codes, click on this link.
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

If the beeping continues. Either boot into the bios & reset from there or reset the bios by moving cmos/bios jumper page 1-16 in you're user manual to clear/reset the bios. (Remember to set the jumper back to default). Boot the PC & enter bios to setup you're prefered settings.
If you're board still continues to beep download a free program called Memest86 & run the software which will test you're memory. http://www.memtest.org/ Scroll down the page till you are under the three Screenshots. Listed there is ** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) ** typed in red.
You have a choice of downloading software to creat either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD disk.
.
Bootable floppy; Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

Bootable CD; Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
You're Asus board can only run up to 2GB Max memory.
Main download web site for ASUS P4V8X-X.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4V8X-X&SLanguage=en-us

Good Luck!
Have more questions, feel free to ask.

Mike

Dell xps 9100 constant beeps upon startup



Beep Codes
Your computer might emit a series of beeps
during start-up if the monitor cannot display
errors or problems. The following repetitive
beep codes help you troubleshoot problems
with your computer.
NOTE: To replace parts, see the Service
Manual on the Dell Support website at
support.dell.com.
One beep - BIOS ROM checksum failure;
possible motherboard failure
Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell" on page 53).
Two beeps - No RAM detected

Remove the memory modules, reinstall
one module and restart the computer. If
the computer starts normally, reinstall anadditional module. Continue until you have
identified a faulty module or reinstalled all
modules without an error.

If available, install memory modules of the
same type in your computer.

Three beeps - Possible motherboard failure
Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell' on page 53).
Four beeps - RAM read/write failure

Ensure that no special memory module/
memory connector placement requirements
exist (see the Service Manual on the Dell
Support website at support.dell.com).

Verify that the memory modules that you are
installing are compatible with your computer.

Five beeps - Real Time Clock failure
Replace the battery.
Six beeps - Video BIOS test failure

I have just installed a 478 socket MSI MS-6526 ver 3 motherboard to my computer and all it dose is bleeps when i turn it on any help would be apricated


check for the error beep if you hear continues beep it means issue with the memory. check the RAM if it is properly inserted to the slots and if it is compatible to the motherboard. if you hear 2 or 3 beeps it means issue with the video. your video card maybe not compatible or not properly inserted to the slot. your motherboard has a built in VGA/Video card try using that first. try connecting the main components memory/RAM, power supply, KB and mouse, VGA card(optional you have a built-in) then check if there is a display or if it booted. then one by one add your other components you want to add. just to trace the problem.

Beeping Upon Bootup


dependent on how many beeps you hear is dependent on what might be the problem. A fuller explanation from pushing the power button to nothing happening would be more than helpful. Beeps in a Poweredge can mean motherboard, memory or as you said power supply problems.

Constant beeping


I would first check that all the fans are turning when you first power it up. It may have fan speed sensors on them, and one or more fans aren't coming up to speed. I would check the CPU fan(s), as they are usually smaller, and tend to go bad before the other larger ones.

Problem with my newly built pc


Hello!

The information for that specific motherboard lists beep codes for 3 beeps or 4 beeps. 3 beeps signals a memory error, 4 beeps signals a thermal warning.

The PDF is here.

Additional information on beep codes can be found at this site.

Hope this helps! If not, let me know and I will try to find more information.

Good luck!
