Re: beeping sound from motherboard

This is not the problem with RAM. There may be possibity of capacitors in mother board not working properly or SMPS has stopped working. you have to check all ur system configuration and components from an experts.

SOURCE: 3 Beep sounds-No boot

As you probably know 3 long beeps on an Intel motherboard is memory failure. Even if RAM is good your Motherboard may have problems in reading your ram module.
If you are using a PCI or AGP video card try also removing and putting back video card, video adapters use shared RAM and can give you troubles with RAM.
Always perform all maintainance on motherboard with power unplugged and avoid to touch contacts and circuits with your finger.
If the 1GB module is new, verify with seller that your motherboard support this memory, some motherboard do not support double density RAM.

If i reformat my computer, is the beep will not sound again? when i printing my computer begins to beep very long i thought it was the cpu overheating and i put some thermal paste... i turn on my...

No i doubt the beep will go away if you format.The beep or beeps are trouble codes,a warning something is not right.

Usually related to the cpu,memory sticks,or a video or sound card on the motherboard.or a issue with heat.

Check your motherboard manufacture websight for the codes.Usually a set of short beeps is memory.
Try taking the memory sticks out and reseting them back in.

1 short beep and 1 long beep when power button is pressed.

These sounds are known as BIOS beep codes. They indicate an error with your system. Traditionally, 1 long and 1 short indicates a system board problem.
If you google bios beep codes, you will be able to find the codes that relate to your Bios, or motherboard.
Backup your files. Your computer is trying to tell you something.

Intel d101ggc making buzzer sound at equal intervals and then pc hangs.

OK this buzz is suppose to be a beep.
The device you described is called apezo electric speaker and is suppose to beep a post code to help define a problem.

If it's buzzing and not beeping there is either a fault with the piezo or the motherboard is not receiving the amount of power it needs to properly drive the speaker.

OK back to the post code. The patern is important it should be a series of long and short beeps. The fact that it is buzzing and not beeping may make it difficult to determine the difference between long and short beeeps.

Try your best to hear a pattern in it. Whether its constant beeps or 2 short 1 long or any other discernable variation please post back the number of beeps and if there is a long or short pattern.
please post back here

My PC Won't Start

Short beeps are usually a ram error. Try reseatting the ram stick(s) and if more than one then try one at a time and in different slot combinations.

Failing that try resetting the bios via the cmos jumper on the motherboard.

Do all of above with power off at plug off course :)
