Re: Long Beeps every other second

Ok, I did some research into your board. Your motherboard is running an award bios. All motherboards use beep codes to tell you what is wrong. You've got a hardware problem somewhere for sure, but where is the question. If you're having 1 long beep, with the same timing and frequency over and over then according to the codes you most likely have a memory problem. Try resetting the motherboard by resetting the cmos ( you can also do this by removing the power from the computer and taking the little clock battery off of the motherboard for about a minute). Also, make sure your ram is tightly seated. In fact, take the ram out and then place it back in. Try running the computer with only one of the chips of ram installed (if you have more than 1 chip that is). Maybe one of the chips went bad. Finally, here is a list of the award beep codes. If you are getting beeps that match one of these examples better than we can go from there. 1 Long, 2 Short - Video adapter failure Repeating (Endless loop)- Memory error 1 Long, 3 Short - Video adapter failure High freq. beeps (while running) - CPU is overheating Repeating High, Low beeps- CPU failure

Continues two beeps and wont boot

From the time it start beep it means either your ram or video card is not good. My recommendation would be checking to connections of the ram and the any other card you have installed on the motherboards or simply just dis connect them wait a couple seconds and connect them back properly and firmly.

Consecutive beeps last 10 seconds, silence for 5 seconds, the long beep for 10 seconds...pattern repeats. Nothing comes on screen. I removed single RAM card, tried other slot, same problem. I powered it on...

how many beeps any breaks between beeps and then how many like 3 beeps then stops for 1 sec then beep beep beep stop beep beep beep check to make sure that your installing your memory sticks right and they are seated all the way make sure all cards are seated right all wires are not shorting out and a worst case your cpu is good

Computer beeps three times and will not start

Clear CMOS/ Remove battery for 10 minutes, reinstall battery & wait for another 10 minutes before turn on. Three Beeps means RAM is defective/ not detected.
