Re: problem

If you cannot access the bios at all even after a cmos clear, then bios chip is damaged, unless you can and are able fit another one you will have to replace the motherboard

D845GVAD2 no bios screen no beep no boot

Hello here is the intel homepage:

Try to renew the power supply, with one you know is working.
I think that`s the problem.

The problem could ofcourse also be the mainboard itselves failing.
There is not much to do about that, other than renew the mainboard or buy a new pc.

Good luck

Pc won't boot

Can you get into the BIOS at all? Not sure what your motherboard is, but usually F1, ESC, DEL, or F10 get you to BIOS.

Without a diagnostics card, or built in diagnostics like some gaming or server boards have, the beeps may tell you what is wrong if you go to the manufacturer web site and look in your product manual.

If you can get to BIOS, some have a restore function to get you back to a different state, but even if that is not the case, you may be able to see something like a bad drive or memory chip being unrecognized that will identify the problem. If no to the BIOS or the BIOS was no help continue on:

At each step, if the same beeps happen, reconnect the device and move to next and reboot. Power off completely between steps and unplug the PSU.
1) Disconnect cd and hard drives, try to boot.
2) Remove memory and try to boot.
3) If motherboard has built in graphics, remove video card.
4) Lastly, remove everything one at a time till you get to the BIOS with no beeps. If nothing but your monitor is connected, and you still get the same beeps, the motherboard or CPU may be faulty.

If removing one item, ie the CD drive, allowed the PC to boot, then try a different cable, or IDE/SATA port. If memory removal allowed boot, then try one at a time in your main memory slot until you identify the bad module and replace it. If the motherboard boots with no VGA card, then that is a likely culprit, but switch to a higher power PSU and see if that allows you to boot. (some cards like the 6790 give messages to say you don't have enough juice, while the 4870 just makes the motherboard beep because no video device is attached technically)

Motherboards aren't the easiest to debug, but if you have patience, you will be able to eliminate all possibilities and identify the root cause of the problem.

Computers doesn't startup and has no beep

remove the RAM chip and start the computer without the ram chip inserted and see if you get beeps if yes the motherboard/bios is ok, even if you dont get to hear any beeps, try rubbing the edge of the ram which goes into the ram slot using a Eraser and then reinsert the same back in Ram slot and then see if you can at least get to bios and see if hard disk is detected as windows boots from hard disk if yes check if you can boot to windows if no may need to reinstall windows.please reply with results so that can help

Bios replacing

You will need to download the BIOS installation software for DOS if they have one from the motherboard manufacturer and the BIOS file. You will then need to make a bootable dos cd-r disc using windows. Once you have done this you can use the disc to start your computer in DOS mode. Then burn the BIOS DOS SOFTWARE and the BIOS FILE on a cd-r. Then you will be able to run the BIOS software from dos and install the bios file. You could also install windows on a USB hard drive then try to boot from it if your computer can boot from USB and the USB boot device option is still working.

Failure of both (dual) bios after updating

Sorry bud, when you flashed the BIOS it obviously did not like it..Nine long continuous beeps is ROM BIOS checksum error. Another words you need a new CMOS chip as you cannot backdate a flash BIOS. You can't boot from any disk because the boot process never even gets to the part where you can use your system. BIOS is first when you start up and if you can't get by it then nothing will work. The only advice is use this as a good learning experience and make a backup of your BIOS in the future. Good luck..don't shoot the messenger. Please rate this solution before you log out.

Repeating beep on startup.

Hi iamborg,
You're Gigabyte GA-8VD667K board uses an Award bios. (Click on the link).

The beeps are telling you to remove you're memory & seseat it.
It would help if you cleaned the copper colored contacts with some house hold alchhol on a cotton swap. (clean both sides & let dry).

Good Luck!
That should do it.

BIOS in BAD Shape

First thing the problem only with O.S(as per your statement - proper shutdown and restart). Your O S afftected by virus. you must format the full harddisk(all partions) and reinstall your O S. BIOS File always having the .ROM extention file, not BIN file. Pls reset the BIOS using the clear cmos jumper or removing the CMOS battery from motherboard.*****severe virus attack. Dont try to backup****
