    I bought new memory, removed the old and tried one stick in each slot separately. Still beeps 3 long beeps. I get the same thing with no memory installed. I read that if an Intel board does that, it's the motherboard. Before I give up and but a new one, I'd like to try everything.

    This happened after trying to overclock. I have tried to over write the bios with a recovery.bio on thumb drive and taken the battery out, removed the bios jumper, etc. I'm not ready too give up.

    no its not the mobo coz it wont beep if it was mobo and as u said it 3 long beeps its an memory issue

  • If you have installed incompatible memory modules, the system may not boot. Verify the memory you've installed has been tested with your board. To find the tested memory list for your board, go to Tested Memory. If the memory is compatible, try removing and reinstalling the memory modules to ensure they are installed correctly.
  • Some desktop boards require you to populate the memory sockets starting with the first socket. The product guide for your desktop board will indicate such a requirement.
  • If you have defective memory modules, the system may not boot. One, two or three beeps at boot indicate defective memory. To isolate a specific memory module as defective, boot the system with just one memory module installed at a time.

Intel server MB


Find out which BIOS is installed (websearch on server model) then search for Bios Beep Codes for that BIOS. Check what 4-3 4-3 means, you may find it is something simple. If you can get floppy working you may be able to flash BIOS but again you need to know which one

D845GVAD2 no bios screen no beep no boot


Hello here is the intel homepage:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+845+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D845GVAD2

Try to renew the power supply, with one you know is working.
I think that`s the problem.

The problem could ofcourse also be the mainboard itselves failing.
There is not much to do about that, other than renew the mainboard or buy a new pc.

Good luck

Intel 31 3 beep sound solve


3 Beeps usually means a memory issue. If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Problem with the Intel Desktop Board DG41BI\r\n I


setting the memory is pointless as the system will automatically find the best speed for it if its set to auto. As for the 3 beeps that is generally vga, but could be different on this motherboard , when you clear the bios do you move or short a jumper

No bios booting on start up


The model number you provided is incorrect.
It is most likely, D945GCNL. Intel site for your MB; http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng

If you’re currently using 2 DIMMs of memory remove one DIMM. Open your manual to page 11. First remove DIMM "L". Attempt booting your system. Listen for possible bios beeps. Than shut the system down and remove the memory from " K " and insert your second memory DIMM. Again, boot system and listen for bios beeps. Intel suggest when installing memory on to the D945GCNL motherboard that it be done in a specific manner. See, 1.4 System Memory Page 16, in the TechProdSpec.pdf manual provided below; http://downloadmirror.intel.com/15115/eng/D945GCNL_TechProdSpec.pdf
The power supply currently in your system with does not provide enough wattage for your motherboard. To help find how much power you do need open the next link provided; http://www.journeysystems.com/?power_supply_calculator
It’s better to have more wattage power than you need. Even though you have an Intel manual for your board it’s suggested you download it from Intel. You'll need Adobe reader to view the manual. With Adobe you can use the zoom in feature. The next pdf link is your manual;
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/15115/eng/D945GCNL_ProductGuide02_English.pdf
I do not think there is anything wrong with you bios or your system memory. I think your system is under powered.

Happy holidays!

Intel DG45ID motherboard bricked


Here you maybe should not set the manual setting to 800 mghz.

Use the default setting as you can save and reboot it.

There may be a problem with the way the bios sees the memory. Also examine your manual carefully for indications of how the memory needs to be installed.
Some boards require two or more modules to be installed, and will not run correctly with out the modules required installed. Some of these boards will not allow mixing anything except exact sets. That is to say each module must be the same. Some boards are far more tolerant of kinds and makes of modules.
With out the memory, you will not have anything to run on.
So, I would suggest to let the bios set what it sees.
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Intel+DG45ID+pdf&btnG=Search&aq=f&oq=&aqi=
"Four 240-pin Double Data Rate 2 (DDR2) SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module
(DIMM) connectors with gold-plated contacts
• Support for:
. Non-ECC, 1.8 V, DDR2 800/667 MHz memory
. Serial Presence Detect (SPD) memory only
. Unbuffered, non-registered single- or double-sided DIMMs (except double-sided
DIMMs with x16 organization)
. Memory configurations listed below:
• Up to 2.0 GB utilizing 256 Mb technology
• Up to 4.0 GB utilizing 512 Mb or 1 Gb technology
• Up to 8.0 GB utilizing 1 Gb technology
• A minimum of 512 MB of total memory is required"
"NOTE
To be fully compliant with all applicable Intel ® SDRAM memory specifications, the
board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD)
data structure. If your memory modules do not support SPD, you will see a
notification to this effect on the screen at power up. The BIOS will attempt to
configure the memory controller for normal operation."
So, the memory is dependent on the configuration. It appears that this board requires 4 modules at once to be installed, depends on the amount of memory per module as well.

Be careful about flashing the bios. By doing that you can ruin the bios and make the computer completely unusable until you get and install a new bios module, if you do not pick the exact correct flash version.

3 long beep


The Intel motherboard D845GLVA can only run up to 2GB of 184-pin, 2.5 V, DDR266/200 MHz SDRAM. Test the system by inserting only one stick of memory into slot 1 which is closest to the CPU. Boot system & listen for beep code. If no change remove memory & insert into slot 2 & boot system. Listen for beep code. The Intel D845GLVA MB uses the AMI bios. There is no code to match your 3 long beeps.
Click on the link below, scroll down to AMI;
http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

However, you mentioned you loose display when you here the 3 beeps. This is common when a video card is not connected correctly or does not have enough power. Since your MB uses a built-in video card it is very possible that the video controller,
Intel 82845GL Graphics and Memory Controller is going. You can test this theory by buying a PCI video card & installing it into any one of the three PCI slots on the MB. You will not need to enter the MB bios to make any changes. The MB will auto detect the video in the PCI slot & use it over the built -in video. See page 15 in your manual: PCI Auto Configuration.
If you need the manual for your MB you can download it from Intel.
Click on the link;
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=947&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go%21

Any one of the video cards listed on the next link will run in your system;
