MoBo speaker beeps while using computer

My Abit IC7-G mobo has started beeping while the computer is already running. A while back, I had the hi-lo siren, which turned out to be a fan error from the northbridge fan getting stuck. I disabled it, and that went away. Now, it's making 3 beeps (all the same tone), then a pause, and repeat. The manual doesn't give me a clue as to what any of its beeps might mean... any ideas?

    I'd prefer to know what's causing the alarm first, in case it's something that could cause harm to my system if I leave the root cause uncorrected.

The mobo continuously beeps (ram not properly placed). so i took out the ram, reinstalled it and it worked. recently i wanted to change rams, so when i installed the new rams the mobo beeped again (similar...


I am not sure if you have tried this, but take one stick of ram put it in the first slot. Try to boot if it beeps or not, power down and move to the next slot with the same chip (we are assuming this is a good ram chip). Repeat for every slot on the computer. If you have 1 or 2 slots that beep and the rest do not; bad slot on the mother board. If all slots beep, try a different chip (bad ram??). If no slots beep, repeat steps with each individual ram chip (you could have just one or two bad and causing all the issues).

Hope this helps

Hi I am working on a abit A 17 mother board it was taken apart by my nephew. I think I have every thing back togather, but when I turn it on it beeps and shows code 92,well I think thats what the l e d box...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=AI7&fMTYPE=Socket 478&pPRODINFO=Manual

The fault could be the cpu, wrong type of ram, a faulty ram module
or a fault in the mainboard.
Check all the settings in the manual and the bios aswell.

Here is a list of beep codes:
Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards

  1. No beep at all - this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board
  2. One beep - board is working fine
  3. One long beep then machine shuts down - faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU
  4. 1 short(Beep) System booting is normally
  5. 2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
  6. 1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
  7. 1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
  8. 1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
  9. 1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
  10. Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn't inserted correctly
  11. Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem
  12. A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages
  13. Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).

Beeps on startup but no video and continues to have long beeps with no video


Check the the cpu, ram and video card are seated properly. If they all are, then the board is defective and will need to be replaced.

Ultra m923 mid-tower case won't stop beeping


The problem is the board on the case's display. It has temp alarms for your components(video card, hdd, cpu), there are temp probes for you to set so you can monitor these temps. However the board that controls these functions, or at least mine and many others I have read about, is defective. It will change display constantly and sometimes have garbage display. It is setting its own limits for what is considered a hi temperature. The limit it has set for one of your components is < room temperature so it thinks you are having an overheating problem. You can manually set the limit for overheat and it will fix it for a while, but it will prob happen again.

When i scan mycomputer then it keep siren continuously


The sound you are hearing is a warning that the CPU is over heating.
Try cleaning the CPU fan & the heatsink the fan is connected too.
If you built the system did you add thermal grease between the heatsink & CPU?
It is also possible the thermal grease has dried up & is no longer allowing the heat from the CPU to transfer to the heatsink. It may be time to replace the heatsink assembly.
If your over clocking the CPU reset it to normal.

Luck!
