    The board has nothng except CPU and power? You have to have at least one strip of RAM. You also must have a minature speaker or other speaker attached to the board for the sound to come from.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you have damage in *********** board. How much and of what nature, I cannot tell. It could be a fuse, only, and it could be other more serious things. Did you open the CPU to admire it? If you did, I would be able to say if it has been damaged. The CPU is always installed at the factory and extra precaustions are followed, so that the CPU chip will not get overheated. They also use a special heat conducting compound. When you put it back make sure that you obtain some of that paste or your CPU will not last but only minutes...Please let me know in what other things I could help you and I will be glad to do so. My name is Constantin (arzconst is my internal nickname with Fixya.com).

Unintelligible post beep codes


Depends on the board but most likely, missing a keyboard or cpu isn't installed correctly. What board are you using?

I have a Dell XPS 600 desktop computer. I cannot get the power to stay on. None of the diagnostic lights light up. I have checked all of the connections and everything is secure.


Here's what to try: Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and memory. You may leave the video connected to see what, if any, error message you might get.
You didn't say if you got any beeps on startup. They can tell you what might be the problem.
If this doesn't work, remove the memory modules. The power should stay on but you'll probably get either a steady beep or a bunch of little beeps. (I don't have the Dell error codes close at hand at the moment).
If this doesn't work, you have narrowed the problem to one of three things: The CPU, the motherboard, or the power supply.
You didn't mention just what happens when you turn it on--just that it won't stay on. Error messages are helpful if you get any on the screen as are any beep tones.

Gateway GM5094E amd64 dualcore has NO boot screen ORPOST test beep


A good place to start is to find the reset jumper on the mother board and jumper it. Next you can try disconnecting everything attached to the mother board except the cpu and the heat sink fan. Turn the computer on and you should get a post error beep. If your computer stays running then you will want to attache everything one piece at a time starting with your the keyboard and mouse then the video card so you can see the POST (power on self test) on the screen. Keep adding components until it stops and you have found the problem. If this doesn't solve your problem, you should test your power supply. A bad power supply can and has caused the same problem. If you can't find a detailed test procedure for the PS let me know and I will give you the steps. The cpu power on is dependent upon getting proper voltage from the PS. Good luck.

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.

Installation of audiophile 192


Here is a list computer beeps and what they mean.

  • No Beeps: Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals
  • One Beep: Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine
  • Two Beeps: POST/CMOS Error
  • One Long Beep, One Short Beep: Motherboard Problem
  • One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps: Video Problem
  • One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps: Video Problem
  • Three Long Beeps: Keyboard Error
  • Repeated Long Beeps: Memory Error
  • Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps: CPU Overheating


Most times the beeping is caused by a bad/loose connection somewhere or card not seated properly.
Try disconnecting and reconnecting everything again. Make sure that all the power plugs are connected properly even if you didn't mess with them. Moving things around can sometimes be enough to give you the "BEEPS". ";-}


If you are still having much beeping and no computing you can try my personal favorite.

Start first with verbal threats. Next move to a second floor window and, while you explain whats going to happen if it doesn't knock it off, open the window.

If that fails give it the pitch.
Believe it or not I have used this technique and after reassembly and repair.....No more beep.

I hope this helps but if not let me know and we will try something else.

My desktop computer after switch on , CPU power led glow and on, monitor is on , drive light are on but no beep sound and screen is black . I replaced the cmos battery, memory card ...


The mother board name would be helpful. The name of the computer also.

A quite a few things can be the problem here.
The mother board could be bad with something wrong on it.
The memory should be checked.
Possible problem or defective CPU can also cause this kind of problem.
Not to be overlooked would be a possible problem with one of the cards.
So... I would recommend (with power off and cord removed from power supply) for you to remove all cards. Try by turning on the computer.
If at this point you get no power as you did at the beginning, then you need to check the CPU by either using another one (if possible) or have a friend try the cpu in another computer. If that does not work, then the problem is more than likely in the mother board. At this point if the motherboard is not good (should be checked by another person or friend) , also do not overlook the power supply.

Next... Remove all drive connections such as cdrom, hard drives and floppy. Turn on the computer and see if you can get the bios to come up...if it does, set the bios to default settings.
Next put each drive in one by one and then turn on the computer after each one is connected. If you are still able to start the computer, then put in the cards one by one and try the computer again after each one is put in the slot it came from. This is the process of elimination to see which part is at fault.

Computer when turned on will not boot and makes a long beep continuously and then makes like a siren sound


The long beeps probably mean a problem with RAM. So try replacing it. Check whether the CPU Cooler (the fan on top of the processor) is working. If the fan is not working, the processor gets hot, and a siren sound is emitted. Also check whether power unit fan (at the back) is working. If RAMs are replaced and you still get the beeps, the problem may be with the VGA. (The beep sounds help to identify the problem, but the sounds differ with different BIOS models).

No boot up


Try removing all memory except one board. If it does not come up switch boards. Still no luck, check power supply if you can or switch it with another. A power supply checker is pretty cheap, 10 to 15 dollars, and well worth the investment, although it is not foolproof. Try switching PS off, physically remove the BIOS backup battery, then replace it and try again. That should have cleared the BIOS back to factory defaults. It sounds like a memory problem, but as a last resort, you might reseat the CPU. The CPU fan runs, yes? Can you get some other memory to try? Well good luck!
