Was on the computer when it hard locked. After re-booting, the computer started a long beeping, and there was a green light which immediately turned to a constant red light lit up on the motherboard. This computer is only about one year old.

Something on the motherboard has failed, and the RED light confirms it.
Turn your computer off.

Remove ALL of the RAM. Turn your computer on.
Do all the fan(s) start to spin?

Do you get the _same_ "beeps" as before, or some different pattern of beeps?

If it has more than one stick of RAM (and the RAM is _NOT_ labelled 'DDR2'),
then remove all but one stick of RAM, turn your computer on, and try to reboot.
Same beeps?

Turn your computer off, try a different single (or pair of) sticks of RAM.

Caution: before doing any of the above, your computer could be within the "WARRANTY" period,
i.e., it could be fixed/replaced for free!

Continues two beeps and wont boot


From the time it start beep it means either your ram or video card is not good. My recommendation would be checking to connections of the ram and the any other card you have installed on the motherboards or simply just dis connect them wait a couple seconds and connect them back properly and firmly.

X58 pro e hard to cold start


Three long beeps may signify a keyboard error, and 3 short may refer to memory error. These are best guesses, because MSI uses several BIOS manufactures. Test your RAM one chip at a time to help isolate bad dimm.

When i turned on switch dell vostro 230 it give no display and led colour is red


No Display, so does it seem like the computer booted up and is running except that the Display is black? Do you hear fans running, disk drive spinning, blinking lights or beeps?

I'm going to assume that in your case since you mentioned a red light that it is not booting up all the way. Therefore your problem is probably with the memory, the video card or some other motherboard issue.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Sonny computer makes beep codes on booting. It also gives red light on the drive icon


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM is securely seated

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function

GA-K8VM800M MOTHERBOARD The problem with the board is that, initially it got the message that disk boot failure, after checking bios settings, still it got same message. I have changed the IDE cables...


Try making your hard drive as the first boot in the bios and just connect your hard drive only on the motherboard ( remove cd/dvd drive, etc..). Make sure your hard drive is detected in the bios. Then restart your computer again.

Loud beeping sound on start up , now will not start up , power ok


First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

PC will not boot.


go to windows start menu and click on RUN. type in "msconfig'' without quotation marks and click enter. the computer will load the system configuration utility, on the general tab, select normal startup option, then click on the BOOT.INI tab the click on CHECK ALL BOOT PATHS,a dialog box will appear to tell you whether the windows boot directory is OK or not. if it displays that they are Okay, then there may be that a virus has affected those files. you ca also type in "sigverif" without quotation marks, on RUN to launch the windows file verification, click on start to check important windows files for their correct version. try restarting the computer. if your system still can boot, open the computer case to make sure that the hard drive, and RAM are connected correctly. if you still having problems, notify me.
