Re: my motherboard makes a beeb sound

When a PC starts up it performs a POST (Power On Self-Test) The beeps are a code tellling you something is wrong. The meaning of 3 beeps depends on what type of BIOS you have. Since you have no video you probably won't be able to see what type of BIOS you have. This information is displayed when the computer is starting. Here is a link that tells you how to inerpret beep codes from some popular BIOS's:

Some times randomly the screen will go black and say no signal detected then it will give off a beeb then three beebs then 3 agian i belieave whats this problem? and is it fixable or is it with the board

the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM and Cmos battery are securely seated

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function
the beeps are post pre operating system searching for some hardware it could be RAM cd/dvd hard drive or motherboard all of these must have secure connections for the computer to work
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly click start right click on my computer so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

My dv6000 dont start . i have black screen with one long beeb and two short beebs

HI friend,

one long beeb and two short beebs Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information,some couse of that issue is New hardware conflicting with old hardware or New hardware conflicting with old hardware or Connections not connected or connected properly or other hardware issue.Best solution is
If any new hardware has been recently added to the computer, remove that hardware to make sure it is not the cause of your issue. If after removing the new hardware your computer works it's likely the computer is either not compatible with the new hardware or a system setting needs to be changed to work with the new hardware device.Remove any disks, CD's, DVD's that are in the computer and if any USB devices (ipods, drives, phones, etc)
before all that please
Make sure all fans are running in the computer. If a fan has failed (especially the fan for the CPU) your computer could be overheating and/or detecting the fan failure causing the computer not to boot.
If you continue to to receive the same problem with all the above hardware removed attempt to disconnect the RAM from the Motherboard and turn on the computer. If the computer has a different beep code or if your computer was not beeping and is now beeping turn off your computer and try the below suggestions. Making sure to turn off the computer each time you're adding and removing the memory and then turning the computer back on to see if the suggestion resolves the issue.
  1. Re-insert the memory into the same slot.
  2. If you have more than one stick of memory remove all but one stick of memory, try rotating through each stick.
  3. Try one stick of memory in each slot.

Please rate me.......

My monitor is working but nothing shows up. when I turn computer on I here three beebs a 10 sec pause three more beebs and so on whats the problem. motherboard is a ECS P4VMM2 V5.X that I rehooked up

The 3 beep error code means there is a prolem with the RAM, it could be faulty or needs reseating.
Try reseating the RAM and if this doesn't work then if you have more than one RAM module insert one at a time to determine which is the faulty RAM module.
OR take the RAM modules to your friendly computer shop to test them for you.

Intel desktop board D845wN - no screen display


Switch on your computer and listen for a beeb sound.... if no beeb sound available then your Motherboard has a problem.

if beeb sound comes then switch off your computer and see for the loose contacts on motherboard.

eg. remove ram, clean ram socket and put back the ram

your problem may solved.

Still odd warning sound when starting the computer

Reset your CMOS...

If you don't have a Jumper to reset the CMOS, pull out your power cord, open the computer, and pull out the motherboard's battery leaving it out for about a day (Don't plug in the computer's power cord during this time period). About 24 hours later plug the computer's power cord back in and try a boot (Don't put the battery back in to your motherboard at this time).

If this problem persists check manuals to see if there is a method to reset the CMOS by moving a jumper. If there is not such a method available you might have to send the motherboard back to the manufacturer requesting the BIOS ROM chip be replaced. Depending on if you're still under warranty or not you might have to pay a small fee.

If at any time the boot is successful, enter the BIOS and save the default settings. Afterward shut down, pull out the power cord, and place your battery back in to the motherboard.

Hopefully you get it fixed.

Long beeb sound

find out what brand your motherboard is and look for the beep codes, each motherboard is different but these beeps are there to tell you the problem. if it isnt turning on when you press the button it is most likely a power supply problem like you said and you should try reconnecting all the power connectors to the motherboard and make sure everything is in place. also look for the voltage switch on the back and make sure it isn't at the wrong voltage that has happened to me more than once ;)

Beebing tree times

Louise -

Although the memory may be working okay in another system, the three beeps at post still indicates a memory(RAM) problem. Your motherboard uses AMI BIOS, as indicated by the product specifications on the Asrock website; In the post-error code listing, three beeps is a memory issue.

Check and make sure you have compatible memory for the motherboard; and if possible, test with new or alternate memory sticks.

If new memory doesn't resolve the issue, I would say the RAM slot(s) is damaged, which would require totally replacing the motherboard.

Hope this helps!
