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

It does not boot ,it powers up for 5-10second then dies fans work then stop, i have tested psu and seems to be working fine , all the conections seem to be ok, there is 1 bios beep then there is a gap and...

Try removing all RAM and replacing it one stick at a time. If none of the RAM allows the computer to boot, the problem most likely lies with the processor. Any more information about the computer would be slightly helpful to diagnose the beep codes, but checking the RAM would be my first suggestion.

Worked fine last night, discovered it this morning still turned on but no signal to monitor. Rebooted and it began a consistent beeping with no signal to monitor. Unplugged several times to no avail....

the beeping is coming from the cpu.

1 unplug pc
2 pull out ram chips
3 use an eraser to clean the gold, yes thats gold

what happens is the gold on the ram oxidizes and does not connect properly and can go bad but cleaning it with an eraser sometimes works. take a cpu that is working unplu it pull the ram and you will see the same thing your other pc is doing.

4 reinstall ram (correctly)
5 boot up cpu
6 please vote.

Firstly, make sure you installed the video card (if it has one) back into the same slot it was removed from.
If you are using on-board video, check the CPU is firmly seated into it's socket, you may have to remove the CPU fan to check this.
Next, check your RAM sticks again. Most (about 98%) of boot up issues arise from incorrectly seated ram sticks or ram sticks that have developed connection issues.
When you boot the machine, does it make any beeping noises..?
Usually, a single beep means all is ok. If you hear multiple beeps, then the bios is telling you about a possible fault and you should count the beeps for number and duration (long beeps or short beeps and how many of each and in what order)
Remove the ram and using some very fine emery cloth, gently remove any oxidisation from the contact pads to return them back to bright metal, then re install them making sure they are seated all the way down and the locking clips are fully seated too.
If you still have boot issues, I would suspect the ram sticks first and have them checked by installing them in another compatible machine, either a friends or at a repair shop.
I would suspect the board last so if the ram sticks check out as good, have a closer look at any other cards that may be installed, especially video cards and internal modems but also check out any network cards that may be installed..
If you are still not getting any display on the monitor, take the machine to a service centre or computer shop as they have the specialist equipment to check out the board electronically ( boot cards, scopes etc).
Let me know how you go and what you find..

Desktop with 8KDA dead so replaced power supply but still dead. Electricity still coming to computer but no signs of life. ?

First, power down your PC, remove the power cord and then remove the RAM from the computer. Now turn the computer on. If it doesn't beep at you several times, you have a bad motherboard.
Note: When doing any work on your PC, make sure you disconnect the power and touch some metal on the case to remove static from your hands.
If it does beep at you with the RAM out, the motherboard is OK.
First, before going too far with testing, try simply putting all the RAM back in and turning the computer on. The process of removing the RAM and reinstalling it is called re-seeding. Sometimes re-seeding the ram is all you need to do.
Note: You can also try re-seeding other peripherals, but we will get to that.
If you still aren't having any luck, you will need to test each stick separately.
To properly test the ram, remove the power cord from the computer, remove all peripherals (videocards, sound cards, modems, tv tuner.. etc) and disconnect all drives (hard drive, dvd/cd, floppy).
If you only have one stick of RAM, leave that stick in and turn the computer on. If it boots, the problem isn't with the stick, but with one of the peripherals.
If you have multiple sticks of RAM, you will need to test each stick on it's own with all the peripherals disconnected.
If your RAM is ok, you can now single out which peripheral is giving you an issue by adding them back in one at a time and trying to boot your computer.
If your computer is now booting with everything in it, your computer simply needed to have everything re-seeded - lucky you!

3 beeps wont boot

it is probably a ram error,

Unplug the computer and unclip the ram and remove it, clean the ram sticks and the slot that it goes into with a small dry paintbrush. While you have the unit open clean the dust away with a small paintbrush and a hoover at the ready. If you have more than one ram stick, replace one at a time to determine if you have a problem with both or one. If it boots with one, then shut down remove plug from wall socket and then replace the other one too. If it works okay then fine, if it causes problems then you know that the other stick is bad. If it does not boot on replacing first stick, then remove it and put the other stick in and try again.

I hope this helps

Boot failure

if you don't here ok beep or any error beep:
  1. First check out speaker is connected properly to motherboard.
  2. Remove all component from motherboard like HDD,FDD, RAM etc..
  3. Just put only processor to your board and power-up
  4. There must be a long beep for missing RAM, if not means you have problem in Motherboard or CPU. Try out another board and another CPU to find out which one is faulty.
  5. If you got missing RAM beep, then power-off and add RAM. Then power-up there must be ok beep (only one beep) or missing RAM beep. If missing RAM beep, then your RAM might be faulty try to clean the connection point with pencil earaser and try out again. If no success then try with another RAM.

I think this will help you.
Please post your feed-back. Or ask me if any question.....
Gud luck
