Hi i just get 3 beeps gap then 3 again contuulsy


The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes.
The computers way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

3 beeps, pause, 3 beeps, pause,......
The Gigabyte GA-6BX7 mobo, (MOtherBOard) has an Award BIOS.

3 continuous beeps indicate a Ram Memory failure.

1) Even if the ram memory modules seem to be seated, and locked in, remove, and reinstall.

2) Before you reinstall, it would behoove you to clean the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram memory modules, with a pencil eraser.

Doesn't take very much corrosion to make a bad contact. (In fact after you clean with the eraser it may look as though you've done nothing at all. You have) Gold makes an excellent conductor, but can corrode.

(You can click on the photo to enlarge. You can enlarge twice)

Use air to remove the eraser dust.
If you have a can of compressed air for computers available, use it.
If not air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Reinstall the Ram Memory module/s.

3) Still no?

Computer off, unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions.

If you have more than 1 Ram Memory module, remove all of them.
Lay the Ram Memory module that was in Slot 1 on a wooden surface.
(Ram memory slot closest to the Processor)

Use one of the other Ram Memory modules, or the other Ram Memory module, and insert it into Slot 1.
Plug the computer back into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

4) Still no?
Turn the computer off, (Hold the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds), unplug from power.
Remove the Ram Memory module, use the other one, or another one.
Repeat the steps above.

Post in a Comment as to your findings.

How do I set the margins on my Swintec 2416DM typewriter? Also, how do I change impressions control?


Go to the margin you wish to change, touch don't hold the MAR REL key, space or backspace to the desired location, press R. or L. margin key.
I believe the impression control is a slide switch on the L. side of the keyboard.

What is the beep code asus p5ntws


AMI (American Megatrends International) BIOS Beep Codes.
AMI BIOS uses beeps of the same length and pitch. The error is displayed as a number of beeps. For example, 4 beeps indicated a timer failure.
BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE
1 Beep (No video) Memory refresh failure Bad memory
2 Beeps Memory parity error Bad memory
3 Beeps Base 64K mem failure Bad memory
4 Beeps Timer not operational Bad motherboard
5 Beeps Processor error Bad processor
6 Beeps 8042 Gate A20 failure Bad CPU or Motherboard
7 Beeps Processor exception Bad processor
8 Beeps Video memory error Bad video card or memory
9 Beeps ROM checksum error Bad BIOS
10 Beeps CMOS checksum error Bad motherboard
11 Beeps Cache memory bad Bad CPU or motherboard



Award BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS uses beeps of varying duration. A long beep will typically last for 2 seconds while a short beep will last only 1 second. Award BIOS also uses beeps of different frequency to indicate critical errors. If an Award BIOS detects that the CPU is overheating it may play a high pitched repeating beep while the computer is running.
BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE
1 Long, 2 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter
Repeating (Endless loop) Memory error Bad memory or bad connection
1 Long, 3 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter or memory
High freq. beeps (while running) CPU is overheating CPU fan failure
Repeating High, Low beeps CPU failure Bad processor



Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes
Phoenix BIOS uses beep code patterns to indicate problems. In the table below the '-' indicates a brief pause between beeps.
Example: 1 - 1 - 2 would sound like BEEP <pause> BEEP <pause> BEEP BEEP

Try spraying some WD40 on the silver shaft the carrier rides in and move it back and forth by hand with the power off.
