Question about Intel Desktop Board D845GLVA (BOXD845GLVAL) Motherboard

1 Answer

Blank screen; Unresponsive computer, & three beeps in succession

Woke up this morning to a blank screen and a computer that was unresponsive. After a manual reboot, the machine powered back up but was followed by a series of beeps (two short and one very long) repeated five times. I still have no display and the computer does not seem to be active despite the fact that the power is on (meaning that even though I cannot see anything on the display, I have not heard the typical start-up sounds or Window's telltale tune to indicate that it is working properly). The machine is an HP Pavillion Media Center m8000 which I upgraded with a an eGeForce 8600GT graphics card and additional power source (Antec True Power Trio - 430watt) about a year ago when I bought the computer.

    Ok - replacing the video card with the stock card fixed the beeping....but now I have been presented with a "Disk Boot Error, Insert System Disk and Press Enter" message.

    Is it dead?

2 short beeps and 1 long beep (repeats 5 times) = Unable to initialize video or video card required but not installed. Sounds like the card may have gone down

    Are there any discs in your drives? If so remove them and reboot.

  • Alun Cox Jun 19, 2009

    On the post screen you should be able to select the boot sequence or enter the bios and select it from there. Select the HDD as first boot device. Try that and get back if necessary

Restart iPhone

Sometimes all it takes is a restart for the iPhone to become responsive again. To restart your iPhone when it is unresponsive, press and hold the sleep/wake and home buttons until the Apple logo appears (~10 seconds).

Very low battery

It is possible for an iPhone to become unresponsive if the battery drops to an extremely low level. Plug the iPhone into your computer or wall charger and allow it to charge for at least 20 minutes before using it again.

When I try to update Bios on Toshiba Satellite A215-S7462 The computer 'locks up' (becomes completely unresponsive), and the computer's display goes blank (turns off).

Upgrading BIOS! If it isn't broken don't fix it. Upgrading is a scapegoat fix, and many manufactures have a disclaimer. "You are on you own", and the likes for a reason. Most solutions are found elsewhere. However, if you truly need to update read this to help you with the upgrade. You don't want to end up with a brick.

I think your computer's hard drive crashed because if it's not loading up the startup screen there has got to be a problem with the BIOS. If the keys are unresponsive, your motherboard is probably shot.

That means that your phone has corrupt firmware. Please get the firmware reinstalled from Samsung Service Center. That would remove the virus too which may be the cause of corrupt firmware. And after that install an anti virus software too.
