Question about Computers & Internet

No Beep Code, No Post, No Video

Hello and thanks in advanced for any help.

I have MSI MS-6577 motherboard (motherboard name: Gamila2-GL60) inside a HP a712n pavilion desktop.

The PC was running fine and the only thing I can remember before it went downhill was that I unplugged a SAMSUNG P2 mp3 player and pressed the power switch until the entire system powered down.

Now whenever I try to power the system on my monitor goes into sleep mode. I do not hear any BEEP codes but everything else powers on fine, fans run, cd and dvd drive power on. harddrive even whirrs, etc.

However, there is no POST I have tried to reset the BIOS, clear the CMOS, checked for surges on a non-conductive surface. and also ran the system bare ( no hard drive or cd / dvd ), and the PSU was checked on another system.

Can it be a virus? How else can isolate the problem?

    Thanks alot, but I just have a couple more questions.

    How did this happen? Do motherboards just die after time? or was the MP3 player connected to the incident.

    In any case, if I were to change the motherboard for a new one would I be able to boot up normally?
    Or do I have to take extra precautions or steps?

    Thanks in advanced

    Well I decided to just swap out the system, its a P4 so it was time for an upgrade anyways.

    Thanks for all you help.

Hi there. Ok, have you tried connecting it to another monitor, to see if the same thing happens? Though to be honest, I think the same thing will happen.

If the same thing does happen, try following these steps to see if you can isolate the problem:

Change the CMOS/BIOS battery, to see if the current one is faulty. If it works, then you know the original was faulty.

If it still doesn't work:

Disconnect everything, (hard drive, cd drive, floppy drive and the PSU), also disconnect the cables from the motherboard. Take out any PCI or AGP cards you may have. Now take out the RAM.

Ok, now to isolate the problem:

If you are using more than 1 stick of RAM, only put 1 stick back in. If you only have 1 stick, put it back in a different slot. Make sure that it is seated in properly, by checking that the bits of plastic on the side of the slot have snapped back into place and are straight. If they are at an angle, then it's not seated properly.

Connect the PSU to the motherboard.

Now for your VGA. If you have a VGA port on your motherboard, connect the monitor to that port.

Plug in your keyboard, then your power cable. Turn it on, and see if it starts.

If the same thing still happens, then you have a faulty/corrupt BIOS. Unfortunately, that will mean you need a new motherboard. You can test this by using another motherboard, (if you have, or can borrow), in your system with just the hardware connected that I listed above.

If you need anymore help, or need me to clarify anything, just let me know.

    Hi again.

    I would very much doubt that the mp3 player had anything to do with it. Yes, motherboards do, from time to time, just die. It's unfortunate that it's happened, but like with any electrical system, it does. It could be something as simple as a power surge. Which does happen when you hold down the power button on a computer. You should always use the shut down option on the desktop, unless you have no option, as this shuts down each program/process that's running individually.

    If you are changing the motherboard to just test if your BIOS is faulty, then yes, it will boot normally, as you only need to test to see if you can get the monitor to wake up, and get into your BIOS settings.

    If you are changing your motherboard for a more permanent state, then there are just a couple of things you may need to know:

    If your new board has the same Chipset as your old one, i.e. Intel, VIA, SiS, then there shouldn't be a problem, and Windows should load normally. Though I would suggest that you go to Windows Update, download and install any updates straight away.

    If your new board has a different Chipset, Windows may not load, as the support/drivers for that board may not be installed. Easy enough to get round, just pop in your Windows Setup CD, click on Setup Windows. When it scans the partition, it will find your operating system. It will then ask if you want to still setup Windows, or run a repair. Click on Repair. You may have noticed that there was a repair option on the first step, where I've said, click on Setup Windows. You don't want to use that one, you need to use the second repair option. Once it has copied the new files, the system will reboot and everything should be fine.

    Let me know how you get on

Computer will not boot. Beep error code is 2-2-3. Problem? Motherboard is micro star MS-9121 in an ibm intellistation

Hello the download site is here:

Here you find the manual:

Please select your windows system.
And unzip the file before you can use it:

A 1-2-2-3 beep code pattern means that there has been a BIOS ROM checksum error. Literally, this would indicate an issue with the BIOS chip on the motherboard. Since replacing a BIOS chip is often not possible, this Phoenix BIOS issue is usually corrected by replacing the entire motherboard.

More codes here:

Good luck
