Lenovo core2 desktop computer no post no display errors


Remove the ram memory one at a time and try powering up, next remove the video card if you have a plug in type. Disconnect hardware one at a time in attempt to power up, if no change the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Has anything changed since it was working last? check that first
Next -- the Beep codes indicate a hardware problem --the PC was unable to POST(Power On Self Test-)-but DELL's beep codes closest to what you described is either 1-2-video card not detected or 1-3-1-1 which is Memory (RAM) error adn the PHEONIX beep code of 1-3-2 is Memory error also-- so be sure all cards and chips are seated properly--I dont think its the hardrive --a PC can still boot and POST without a hardrive.

No display, beeps


Hello there vinod_kundap.

Here's your geek-steer ...

Those beeps you hear is your BIOS alerting you about trouble encountered during the bootup's Power-On Self Test (POST) in the only language she knows ... beeps!

Your motherboard uses Award BIOS, and the only POST result that comprises three beeps is "1 long, 2 short" which indicate:

"Video adapter error: Either video adapter is bad or is not seated properly. Also, check to ensure the monitor cable is connected properly."
  • The "video adapter" is the physical device (aka card).
  • "not seated properly" means the card/cable connection(s) are not fully connected tightly.
Of course, this might not be the trouble at all. It is very common for POST failure indicators to be wrong, it's just the best the poor stupid little glob of circuits can do. But it's probably all you have for now, unless you're aware of any other clues not covered in your question.

Troubleshooting actions based on this result would require opening PC case and physically inspecting all connections, and if still troubled, swapping out the video card with a "known good", or taking it out an installing into a "known good" PC, then let simple deduction determine.

Good luck, and please do post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback,
  • if you have ANY further questions.
Today's the best day of my life ... and NOW you're part of it!

Amibios post code on a gigabyte board, 8 beeps 2 beeps 1 beep on GA-6rx board, no video output, have changed cpu, memory, video card, keyboard, hd etc, still no boot----help!


Hope this helps ... from the Ami BIOS website ....

8.2 POST BIOS Beep Codes
Number of Beeps
Description
1 Memory refresh timer error.
3 Base memory read/write test error
6 Keyboard controller BAT command failed
7 General exception error (processor exception interrupt error)
8 Display memory error (system video adapter)
8.2.1 Troubleshooting POST BIOS Beep Codes

Number of Beeps
Troubleshooting Action
1, 3 Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.

6, 7 Fatal error indicating a serious problem with the system. Consult your system manufacturer. Before declaring the motherboard beyond all hope, eliminate the possibility of interference by a malfunctioning add-in card. Remove all expansion cards except the video adapter.
• If beep codes are generated when all other expansion cards are absent, consult your system manufacturer’s technical support.
• If beep codes are not generated when all other expansion cards are absent, one of the add-in cards is causing the malfunction. Insert the cards back into the system one at a time until the problem happens again. This will reveal the malfunctioning card.

8 If the system video adapter is an add-in card, replace or reseat the video adapter. If the video adapter is an integrated part of the system board, the board may be faulty.
