You need to check the bios setting, CMOS, by pressing f2 or delete button, but be careful, just have a look if your board is reading the hard disk and memory. try to go exit and press the load set up defaults, your system might not be read at all , a loosen cable or a hdd problem
there is a big possibility that your System fan is damaged or worst is that it's your CPU fan that is not working properly. If you can still enter the bios by pressing F2, try to check your settings and disable fan control for the system fan. If the problem persist then you need to replace the CPU Fan.
You could try re-seating your ram and your video card if applicable. 2 beeps generally upon post depending on the bios is video or unstable ram. Depending on how many sticks you have on the board try re-seating them if that doesn't work diagnose the faulty stick by putting them in 1 at a time. Hope this helps
just be sure... take out everything, except the the power cable and the little speaker. try to turn it on. there will beep sounds. if not, the problem is the board. if there's sound, check connections.
also tell me the model of it, if possible. after turning it on, check the power and hd leds, if they are on, or blinking.
check if hd and dvd are both jumpered as master. try removing both, just to try to get the bios working.
and one last thing, check it there's a intrusion jumper on board, if yes turn it off.
The beep pattern is a beep code and is how the motherboard communicates errors during the early booting process otherwise known as the POST (Power On Self-Test). List restart the computer and listen for the pattern of short and long beeps. Soltek does not list the beep codes in their manual, instead they refer to Phoenix who manufacturers the AwardBIOS on your motherboard. There are only two POST beep codes; a single long beep followed by two short beeps (Video error) and anything else. Apparently anything else you hear *probably* refers to RAM problems.
Since you?ve already tested both one of the remaining options is to install a *POST* card (about $30 to $50), boot the PC and read the hexadecimal error code for a more detailed clue to what failed. If you ask around you might find someone who has one and may be willing to loan it to you.
Another option is to write off the motherboard since the cost of the test equipment it about 1/3 the cost of a new board.
