1 long beep in post


Hello one long beep, is a failing ram module.

Try to renew the modules, or remove the modules, and insert one at the time.
Just to test one of them for fault.

4x 240 Pin DDR2, Dual Channel DDR533//667/800, up to 8 GB

Here is a list of beep codes:

Acer 5742g Beep at boot up


I have a problem that looks like this one.

At boot up, after the POST, each time the HDD led blinks, the laptop produces a loud "beep", and refuses to boot, as if this phenomenon prevented the HDD to be read.

If I press the power button, it stops beeping. When I release it, it starts beeping again.

If I press F8 at the beginning and then ask for a normal boot, It boots normally. Anyway, in windows, I have some strange activity, like I would continually pressing Alt+Tab. If I press Esc, it stops immediately and then all seems to work fine.

Any clue?

Fitted 1GB RAM yesterday, computer worked fine, today started okay, but later on it had turned the power off and will not power up now (emachne 32300


If you get no power, it sounds like possibly the power supply may be bad. If you can replace the power supply with known working unit, that would be a good start. If at that point you still get no power, then possibly the motherboard could have gone bad. Even without the ram installed you should get power through the board and when you try to boot you should get a beep or series of beeps. I would start with the power supply tho.

Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=AI7&fMTYPE=Socket 478&pPRODINFO=Manual

The fault could be the cpu, wrong type of ram, a faulty ram module
or a fault in the mainboard.
Check all the settings in the manual and the bios aswell.

Here is a list of beep codes:
Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards

  1. No beep at all - this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board
  2. One beep - board is working fine
  3. One long beep then machine shuts down - faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU
  4. 1 short(Beep) System booting is normally
  5. 2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
  6. 1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
  7. 1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
  8. 1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
  9. 1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
  10. Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn't inserted correctly
  11. Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem
  12. A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages
  13. Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).

Beeps on startup but no video and continues to have long beeps with no video


Check the the cpu, ram and video card are seated properly. If they all are, then the board is defective and will need to be replaced.

When i boot up the computer it starts beeping immediately, otherwise boots just fine


The beeps are part of the boot sequence, more normally called the post report. The beeps length and number usually indicate a problem.

Check with the abit website, you need the post sequence for your motherboard.

Usually, with a post report, you get a single beep which means everything is tickety boo.

The beeps might indicate the problem with RAM. Try plugging out the RAM modules and insert them back in one by one in different slots and then check.

Abit Fatal1y FP-IN9 Boot Problem!?


check your jumper settings. You can probably view jumper diagram online. Make sure all drivers are downloaded and up to date. Try placing windows installation disc in before booting pc. Also check boot setting to make sure hardrive boots second and cd boots first. Also make sure your hard drive jumper is set to master.
