Re: bios and ddr

The new RAM is faulty or incompatible.
Take out the old RAM and see if the error goes away. If it does the two sticks are incompatible. If not the new RAM is the wrong type or faulty.
Get a stick that matches what you have, and you should be OK.
try and use their memory finder.

MB keeps beeping 1 long beep no boot.

Hello try to download the manual:

Select windows xp and open the manual folder
Click on global for download.
Unzip the file and you need adobe reader to read the content.

Here is a list of beep codes:

This mainboard uses SD ram and it sounds like a ram problem.

If there is room for a ddr ram block you can`t use SD ram and DDR ram simultaneously.

Try to insert the old cpu again and upgrade the bios to support a bigger cpu. Not all cpu is supported.

Good luck

Hello here is some beep codes:

Beep CodeDescriptions 1 short DRAM refresh failure 2 short Parity circuit failure 3 short Base 64K RAM failure 4 short System timer failure 5 short Process failure 6 short Keyboard controller Gate A20 error 7 short Virtual mode exception error 8 short Display memory Read/Write test failure 9 short ROM BIOS checksum failure 10 short CMOS shutdown Read/Write error 11 short Cache Memory error 1 long, 3 short Conventional/Extended memory failure 1 long, 8 short Display/Retrace test failed
My guess is you have a ram/memory module failure.
Try to renew the ram module.

The asus homepage is here:

Here you can download a manual.
Please unzip the file when downloaded.

Your mainboard is using following type of ram:

Dual Channel Memory Architecture
4 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 4GB
PC3200/PC2700/PC2100 non-ECC DDR SDRAM memory

These module does not exist bigger than 1GB.

1.Suggest me the type of ram which is supported Foxconn 8657MF-series. 2.When i installs DDR400 RAM of 256MB it gives continuous beep(bee-bee-bee) sound. 3.What are the beep codes of Foxconn...

the beep sound on system starting before booting starts refers no RAM in system, if you need to upgrade your RAM then go for DDR-SDRAM PC3200 200MHz 512MB 0r 1GB.

My Question to you is, Can I use my Nanya NT256D64S88AAG-7K in my Intel Board D845GLVA ? I read the ram must be " D series ram " to run this board, That is why I am asking. As I have tryed to run them...

Yes, this is a DDR memory that should work in your board. Put it in and start the pc : one, two or three beeps at boot indicate defective memory. If you don't hear anything then the board itself is dead.

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops

Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike

Beep codes

1 Long Beep: Memory problem
Explanation: There is a failure of some sort related to the system memory.
Diagnosis: The first bank of memory probably has a failure of some sort; this is usually just a physical problem such as an incorrectly inserted module, but may also mean a bad memory chip in a module. It is possible that there is a failure related to the motherboard or a system device as well.

Phoenix BIOS beep codes are a series of beeps separated by a pause, for example:
beep --- beep beep --- beep --- beep beep would be 1-2-1-2
  • 1-1-4-1 - Cache Error (level 2)
  • 1-2-2-3 - BIOS ROM Checksum
  • 1-3-1-1 - DRAM Refresh Test
  • 1-3-1-3 - Keyboard controller test
  • 1-3-4-1 - RAM Failure on address line xxxx (check memory)
  • 1-3-4-3 - RAM Failure on data bits xxxx of low byte of memory bus
  • 1-4-1-1 - RAM Failure on data bits xxxx of high byte of memory bus
  • 2-1-2-3 - ROM copyright notice
  • 2-2-3-1 - Test for unexpected interrupts

New RAM, computer stays on intel screen and occasionally continually beeps

Hi DeezKelb, The continous beeps you are hearing is the Award bios telling you the memory is not seated correctly. Please remove the memory & re-seat the two DIMMS.
See Award bios beep codes, click on this link.

If the beeping continues. Either boot into the bios & reset from there or reset the bios by moving cmos/bios jumper page 1-16 in you're user manual to clear/reset the bios. (Remember to set the jumper back to default). Boot the PC & enter bios to setup you're prefered settings.
If you're board still continues to beep download a free program called Memest86 & run the software which will test you're memory. Scroll down the page till you are under the three Screenshots. Listed there is ** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) ** typed in red.
You have a choice of downloading software to creat either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD disk.
Bootable floppy; Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

Bootable CD; Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
You're Asus board can only run up to 2GB Max memory.
Main download web site for ASUS P4V8X-X.

Good Luck!

If you have a motherboard with only ddr1 support (speeds 266 to 400mhz) You cant put in a ddr2. It might just go BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP or it might harm the ddr2 memory I dont know I have never put wrong memory into a motherboard. :P Good luck thought!

No boot on start up all fans start but no video

I had same problem!
I figured there was something wrong with my memory because that is what the manual says the constant beeps mean.
I bought a new PNY memory stick 1 gb DDR and got the same beeps when i put it in.
So being totally disappointed I tried putting the Stick in the #3 DIMM. I booted up and IT WORKED!
I have not called tech support or tried both 1 & 3 DIMM together but I will try after I set up the rest of my computer.
