I have mb-msi2000-815e pro ver1, it is constantly beeping. change the memories,agp,, but it still continues.what could be wrong/


1.Your first step is to look at the information about the meaning of the beeping codes. Beep codes are important and useful tools when troubleshooting booting issues. When you turn on your computer system, it is called POST (Power On Self Test).

2.No beep is usually a power problem that can be related to the power supply, motherboard or both. Always check your battery power before thinking there is a bigger problem.

3.One beep is a normal POST. That means everything is fine.

Two, Three, or Four short beeps are normally about the memory of the machine. If there is a problem with one of your memory chips you should get beeps of different combinations in this area. If you get two or three short beeps, one or both of your memory chips could be in trouble.

4.Five beeps point toward motherboard or CPU problems. Make sure your memory and video card are seated properly. Try removing them and putting them back in, only if you are comfortable with computers.

Six, seven and eight beeps.


Eight beeps indicate problems with your video card. Six or Seven are CPU, or a bad chip on the motherboard.


Nine beeps mean the BIOS is bad. Replace the motherboard.

Ten beeps means the problem is in the CMOS. All chips need to be replaced.

5.Eleven beeps are related in the cache of the mother board and this means that the motherboard needs replaced.

One long and three short beeps mean that it is related to a loose memory chip. Try reseating it.

One long and eight short beeps means that the video cards needs reseated.

6.I hope that this list of beep codes will help settle the panic you feel when your computer is sick. If all fails, Then you inform me

    My Canon s4500 not working, with 6 beeps error


    This is because the BJ Cartridge is not installed. Please refer to your manual page 214.

    Two beeps: Out of paper, or paper feed error
    Three beeps: Paper jam
    Four beeps: BJ Cartridge out of ink
    Five beeps: Cartridge not installed correctly
    Six beeps: BJ Cartridge not installed
    Seven beeps: BJ Cartridge defective

    It is beeping "Error" with 5 beeps


    5 beep error means that the waste ink tank is full. You can reset the counter to make it print by doing the following: You have to be exact. If you make a mistake in any of it, just go back to the beginning and start it all over.

    1.Unplug the power cord from the printer

    2.Hold down BOTH the POWER and RESUME button at the same time and then plug the power cord back in. Keep holding down the buttons until the printer finishes its powering up noises.

    3.After the printer is quiet, release the POWER and RESUME buttons. Then hold down the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons at the same time with one hand, and press the POWER button with the other. KEEP HOLDING DOWN the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons until you hear 2 beeps. They will come quickly together and one beep will be longer than the other. Listen carefully, as they are not very loud.

    4. Once you hear the 2 beeps, release both buttons.

    5. After both buttons have been released, then press the CARTRIDGE button 15 times. You will hear a beep each time it's pressed.

    6. After you finish pressing the cartridge button 15 times, then press the RESUME button one time. The printer will beep and shut off.

    7. Turn the printer back on by pressing the POWER button. The printer will work fine now. The waste ink will have been reset to 50% full.

    Pc keeps beeping 3 times and nothing on the moniter


    remove the RAM(MEMORY CHIPS) from *********** board and reinsert.if the problem is same replace the chips,get new chips.mostly cleaning the golden lines on the chip with pencil/school rubber solves the problem.
    No beep is usually a power problem that can be related to the power supply, motherboard or both. Always check your battery power before thinking there is a bigger problem.
    Step3
    One beep is a normal POST. That means everything is fine. Two, Three, or Four short beeps are normally about the memory of the machine. If there is a problem with one of your memory chips you should get beeps of different combinations in this area. If you get two or three short beeps, one or both of your memory chips could be in trouble.
    Step4
    Five beeps point toward motherboard or CPU problems. Make sure your memory and video card are seated properly. Try removing them and putting them back in, only if you are comfortable with computers. Six, seven and eight beeps. Eight beeps indicate problems with your video card. Six or Seven are CPU, or a bad chip on the motherboard. Nine beeps mean the BIOS is bad. Replace the motherboard. Ten beeps means the problem is in the CMOS. All chips need to be replaced.
