I upgraded the memory about 3 weeks ago. Everything is running fine, except there is a continious beep from the time the "A" drive is checked for a bootable drive untilI load the Abit monitoring program ABITEQ and then it stops. How do i find the cause and how do i fis the problem? All ideas are welcome?

I still did not find beep code that match your problem..
Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too. 1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem. 2. 1beep - board is working fine. 3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing. 4. 1short beep - system boots normally 5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error. 6. 1long 1short beep - dram error 7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected 8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error. 9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error 10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected 11. Short beep - power supply error 12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.
AMI (American Megatrends International) BIOS Beep Codes. AMI BIOS uses beeps of the same length and pitch. The error is displayed as a number of beeps. For example, 4 beeps indicated a timer failure. BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE 1 Beep (No video) Memory refresh failure Bad memory 2 Beeps Memory parity error Bad memory 3 Beeps Base 64K mem failure Bad memory 4 Beeps Timer not operational Bad motherboard 5 Beeps Processor error Bad processor 6 Beeps 8042 Gate A20 failure Bad CPU or Motherboard 7 Beeps Processor exception Bad processor 8 Beeps Video memory error Bad video card or memory 9 Beeps ROM checksum error Bad BIOS 10 Beeps CMOS checksum error Bad motherboard 11 Beeps Cache memory bad Bad CPU or motherboard
Award BIOS Beep Codes Award BIOS uses beeps of varying duration. A long beep will typically last for 2 seconds while a short beep will last only 1 second. Award BIOS also uses beeps of different frequency to indicate critical errors. If an Award BIOS detects that the CPU is overheating it may play a high pitched repeating beep while the computer is running. BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE 1 Long, 2 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter Repeating (Endless loop) Memory error Bad memory or bad connection 1 Long, 3 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter or memory High freq. beeps (while running) CPU is overheating CPU fan failure Repeating High, Low beeps CPU failure Bad processor
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes Phoenix BIOS uses beep code patterns to indicate problems. In the table below the '-' indicates a brief pause between beeps. Example: 1 - 1 - 2 would sound like BEEP <pause> BEEP <pause> BEEP BEEP
BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE 1 - 1 - 2 CPU / motherboard failure Bad CPU / motherboard 1 - 1 - 3 CMOS read/write failure Bad motherboard 1 - 1 - 4 BIOS ROM failure Bad BIOS chip 1 - 2 - 1 Timer failure Bad motherboard 1 - 2 - 2 DMA failure Bad motherboard 1 - 2 - 3 DMA failure Bad motherboard 1 - 3 - 1 Memory refresh failure Bad memory 1 - 3 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 1 - 3 - 3 64K memory failure Bad memory 1 - 3 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 1 - 4 - 1 Address line failure Bad memory 1 - 4 - 2 Parity error Bad memory 1 - 4 - 3 Timer failure Bad motherboard 1 - 4 - 4 NMI port failure Bad motherboard 2 - 1 - 1 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 1 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 1 - 3 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 1 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 2 - 1 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 2 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 2 - 3 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 2 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 3 - 1 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 3 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 3 - 3 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 3 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 4 - 1 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 4 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 4 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 4 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 3 - 1 - 1 Slave DMA failure Bad motherboard 3 - 1 - 2 Master DMA failure Bad motherboard 3 - 1 - 3 Interrupt controller failure Bad motherboard 3 - 1 -4 Slave IC failure Bad motherboard 3 - 2 -2 Interrupt Controller failure Bad motherboard 3 - 2 - 3 <RESERVED> 3 - 2 - 4 Keyboard control failure Bad motherboard 3 - 3 - 1 CMOS batter failure Bad CMOS battery 3 - 3 - 2 CMOS configuration error Incorrect setting 3 - 3 - 3 <RESERVED> 3 - 3 - 4 Video memory failure Bad video card or memory 3 - 4 - 1 Video init failure Bad video card or memory 4 - 2 - 1 Timer failure Bad motherboard 4 - 2 - 2 CMOS shutdown failure Bad motherboard 4 - 2 - 3 Gate A20 failure Bad motherboard 4 - 2 - 4 Unexpected interrupt Bad processor 4 - 3 - 1 RAM test failure Bad memory 4 - 3 - 3 Timer failure Bad motherboard 4 - 3 - 4 RTC failure Bad motherboard 4 - 4 - 1 Serial port failure Bad motherboard 4 - 4 - 2 Parallel port failure Bad motherboard 4 - 4 - 3 Coprocessor failure Bad motherboard or CPU. 9 - 2 - 1 Video adapter incompatibility Use a different brand of video card
The one thing that people should stay away from is the Motherboard! It may be fried to use your word, but a Motherboard is not a french fry to be fried. An MB is a complicated and multiple task board that, once to find the fault, it takes pennies to fix it. The way you talk it seems that the computer is old and slow and antiquainted. If that is not so, then send us the following information: (1) Name of Mnufacturer and Trade Name of Computer; (2) Model Name and Number; (3) Motherboard Identification Number. If you have a problem we can help you find it. (4) All details of what happened when you tried to turn it on. Also under this, we would like to ask you what type of Memories are used. Thank you for your consideration of choosing our service. CONSTANTIN (arzconst)
How is the beep sounds? Long beep and three short beep or one (-...) or all long beep?
For the first, usualy the VGA connector is not correctly seated, so the motherboard can say it has no output device and beeping.
The last is usually memory problem. Try, unplug your memory board and replug it again, make sure that it is correctly seated.
