Question about Biostar K8VGA-M Motherboard
I have a K8VGA-M motherboard and it wont boot up it just makes some long beeps every other second and it does nothing. I had it for about 2yrs now and this is the first time this has happened. What can I do?
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
