Question about Computer Processors

No post no beep no video

I recently purchased a new motherboard and processor because my old processor overheated. I installed CPU, memory, and video card and i get all the fans and lights on but no beep codes or POST when the system is running. There is no video, although the screen does flicker when i turn the power switch on. In short, all fans + lights on, no POST or beep codes. I RMA'd this motherboard because i thought it was the problem but am getting the same problem with the new motherboard Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz LGA 775 MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card 650 watt power supply

Could be a bad power supply or you could try this fix its really strange but it fixed my m8's pc The reset switch may be fried making the pc constantly reset itself just unplug ur reset switch and see if it works

Why does my computer beep when I turn it on?

Here is a list of what beeps may mean:

1 long, 2 short Video adapter error: Bad or improperly seated video card Repeating beeps Memory error: Bad or improperly seated RAM 1 long, 3 short Bad video RAM or video card not present High-frequency beeps Overheated CPU: Check fans Repeating high/low beeps CPU: Improperly seated or defective CPU 1 short DRAM refresh failure 2 short Parity circuit failure in the first 64KB of RAM: Likely a bad RAM IC, or possibly one of the hardware tests has failed

Once you have identified what the beeping means you should contact the type of pc you have and ask what to do.

Like to replace my processor which is AMD Duron 900MHz to Motherboard Gigabyte 7VM333M-RZ. Which current processors are compatible with this board? Please advise. I want a current fast processor.

Hi, As far as I can see, this motherboard is very old, and the faster processor you could get would be around 1.8 ghz, single core. Here's the list of supported processors:
What I would suggest is that you buy a motherboard/cpu combo, then you could get a quad core with a recent motherboard for less than 150-200$. Of course you'd have to be willing to change your motherboard, but unfortunately, you're not gonna get a good processor with your current motherboard, and computer parts (like Ram, hard drives, video cards) are going to cost more and more for their rarety, while they are less performant.
Best of luck to you!

How will you know if the processor is still working?

Finding Out the CPU condition whether its working or not
  • 1

    Turn on your PC and listen for a beep. Your computer runs a diagnostic upon startup called "post." Post checks for the basic requirements for your system. This includes RAM, processor and video functions. If those three basic elements are working properly, you will hear one beep from your computer's speaker and you can be assured your processor still works.

  • 2

    If you hear multiple beeps, count the number of beeps you hear as this will help you determine if your processor is functioning properly. If you are running Phoenix BIOS, make sure you count and write down the beep sequence.

  • 3

    Consult your motherboard's BIOS instruction manual; there will be a section on the "post" startup. Five beeps means a processor error for most standard AMI BIOS systems. The number of beeps you here will tell you the problem your computer is experiencing that is preventing it from booting up. Once you know how many beeps to look for, you can safely determine if your CPU is still functioning properly.

    . Led will light up but cpu does not power up.

    Does the CPU fan rotate? And no monitor activity? Sometimes the hard disc has some kind of activity. This could be attributed to loose/failed in memory in the syste. You can try to reseat or clean the memory edge connector with clean eraser. But power down first yur unit and unplugged to wall socket no power connection shall be connected.

    Sometimes it doesn't make any beep code. If beep is generated this could be video problem. But check first the Ram and video, before getting to anything.

    Post an update.

    My system doesnt start

    if no beeps (remove the RAM and for sure has to beep if the motherboard is OK) at all and no video signal you may look to:
    1. a new PS - power supply or
    2. a new CPU or
    3. a new motherboard.
