Re: New system build won't boot up

Okay - A little focus and resolve and the answer seems to be:

To get the system running again...

-unplug all unessential components
[I left my CPU, CPUfan, GPU, GPUfan, memory, both HDs connected inside; keyboard, monitor outside; USB mouse on standby]
-reset CMOS
[a matter of power-down, move jumper, move jumper back after a few moments]
-reboot and enter BIOS, reset date
[if date is not reset then checks may be enforced - DEBIAN Etch will do this!]
-plug in mouse

I have still to find out the cause for the problem in the first place, so as soon as I have all my backups off the drive I will try plugging in the DVD-RW, and each extra fan in turn. I have a suspicion that there is an overload problem (the PSU is rated 500W; I have to ask is this enough?).

Re: New system build won't boot up

Hi, Depends on the number of beeps and their sequence, the problem can either be video or memory. In some rare instances (Asus motherboards) this would indicate a BIOS problem. Perhaps what you try is to remove the video card/memory, clean the gold contacts using a pencil eraser and re-insert back to the slot. You can also try doing a CMOS reset on the motherboard and thereafter run it a Fail-Safe or Default settings. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Hello the manual can be downloaded here:

Check the ram modules, and the graphic card.

How many beeps comes, when you start the pc ??

Here is a list of beep codes:

One long beep is a ram module failing.
Try insert one module, and reboot.
The problem could also be, the power supply.

Here is a fault finder guide:

Best of luck

D955xbk won't boot

2 beeps is very likely the RAM. Reseat, or test one DIMM, one slot at a time to isolate BAD DIMM.

4 bleeps and it won't boot

The AMI BIOS 4 beep error code usually means an issue with memory. If you are not getting any video, then the problem is probably in the first bank of memory. If you have 2 memory sticks installed, try swapping them. If not, try re-seating the memory stick. A single stick should be placed in the "A" channel slot, the one closest to the CPU. You aren't saying if this is a new build. If so, are you certain that you have the correct type and speed memory? The manual, pages 1-3 thru 1-5 lists the "approved" type/size/vendors for memory. Vendor isn't always important, but if type and size are correct, and the vendor is not on the tested list, there may be compatibility issues. Some memory requires different voltage settings than the MB defaults to. Check the memory vendor for details if necessary.

My computer won't boot up, it will beep three times (does not repeat). According to the "Intel Destop Board D975XBX2" Manuel it says the memory is bad, So I swapped it out but I am still...

The one that told about memory is bad, he is correct, that beeping sound from your board means memory deficiency.
Best way is to put one memory at a time just to test which memory card is defective. If both is defective, try to put a new one.
Upon booting up, the memory can be seen.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

When boot up i get 1 long and 2 short beep repeatedly. No additional hardware attach to mobo. Please advise

Thats a video card failure.

If the video card is build into the mainboard try attaching a another videocard to the motherboard and see if it boots up

I know the beeping too well, I've had that happen on laptops and well a few desktops, if the new card doesn't solve the problem the mainboard is faulty.

No video from P4DMS-6GM, one long continuous repeating beep from speaker

For this motherboard, having a phoenix/award bios. first thing you should try is reset the bios. one long beep is due to video. If you are using onboard video, can you try using a pci video card to see if it boots up first? if you are using a video card already, try reseat or replace the video card.

Failed POST

Foxconn uses the Award bios. One beep repeating means, check for improperly seated or missing memory. You can find that here.
Remove your memory & re-seat.

Good luck!

GA-EP35C-DS3R random reboots

Hi Buzznode,

First things first - once you have all the components properly seated (sometimes if a RAM chip or CPU heatsink/fan isn't quite right it'll cause those problems) clear the CMOS entirely. There should be a jumper somewhere near the CMOS battery - move it from the 1-2 seating to the 2-3 (with the system powered down) and count to ten. Move it back over and then try booting up again. If the problem continues, swap the memory chips. Otherwise repost once you've tried the recommendation.

Trobble booting

my guess is that your cpu or other major component fried. the same thing happened to me. check for proper connections, thermal grease properly applied, ect. there are many many problems that cause this however. try listening for beeps and matching them on a "beep chart". you can find them on the internet. good luck and hopefully this helps. im assuming you recently obtained the parts, so if any parts are broken you can simply return/exchange. nice build btw.
