    I bought a second-hand mobo and replaced my currently functioning board. The seller said he upgraded to i7 and the board was working fine when he removed it. I plugged in everything and pushed the on button and the lights came on and shut down in 3 seconds. I think there was one beep.

    When did this start? Did you download or install any drivers or hardware recently? Is there any beeping?

Disk boot failure. Issue:Disk boot failure.
Cause: This issue could be caused by any of the below possibilities.

  1. Boot options are not set properly in CMOS
  2. Non bootable disc or USB in computer
  3. Remove added hardware /check connections
  4. Hard disk drive is bad
Solution:Boot options are not set properly in CMOS
Verify that the boot options within CMOS are set properly. Below is an example of how we recommend the boot options be set. Additional information about how to enter CMOS can be found on document CH00192.
  1. Floppy drive
  2. CD-ROM drive
  3. Hard Drive
  4. Other / Network
Non-bootable floppy diskette or disc or USB in computer
Verify that there is no floppy diskette or disc in the computer. If the boot options are set improperly the computer could be trying to boot from the disc drive instead of the hard drive.
In addition to verifying there is no disc in the computer make sure that no USB jump drive, external hard disk drive, or memory stick is inside any memory card reader.
If you're wanting to boot from a floppy diskette, CD, DVD, or USB drive and are getting this error message and have verified that your CMOS settings are in the proper order as explained in the above paragraph the diskette or disc you're using is either bad or does not have the proper files on it to make it bootable.
  • Additional information about how to make a boot disk can be found on our boot disk help page.
  • See document CH000669 for information about creating a bootable disc.
Remove added hardware / check connections
If you've recently installed any new hardware it's suggested that it be removed to verify it's not causing this issue. If after the device has been removed the computer works and it was another IDE / EIDE device ensure that the jumpers are properly set on the hard disk drive.
In addition to removing any new hardware it's also suggested if you've recently moved the computer or installed anything inside the computer that the connections for the drive be checked. Usually it's best to simply disconnect the cables from the back of the drive and reconnect them to make sure they're connected properly. While inside also disconnect and reconnect the cable connected to the motherboard as well. While inside your computer make sure you're aware of ESD.
Bad hard disk drive
If you have followed the above steps and you continue to experience the same issue, unfortunately it is likely that the hard disk drive is bad or the controller is bad.
If available, you may want to connect another known good hard disk drive to the computer to determine if it can be detected. If it is able to be detected then replace your hard disk drive. If it is not detected, unfortunately you will need to replace the motherboard or controller as it is bad.
If no additional hard disk drive is available it is recommended that the hard disk drive be replaced first or that the computer be serviced / repaired.

Re seat your RAM and any other cards that plug into the Mother Board such as PCI cards then try starting the computer again. If that doesn't fix it, then you can uninstall devices and try to boot until you find the culprit, as those beeps you hear sound like hardware error beeps that can be caused by faulty hardware (even keyboards or mice) that plug into your computer. Eliminating all removable hardware should help you determine whether it's an add on component or if the Mother Board itself is bad.
Good luck
