Question about Dell Vostro 200 Mini Tower With 20" Flat Panel Monitor PC Desktop

1 Answer

Beepcode: single beep every 2 to 3 seconds continuous

FoxConn G33M02 motherboard, POST begins but after a few seconds beep code begins: single beep every 2 to 3 seconds continuous. My old A+ manual says possible bad power supply, but it may be different based on motherboard manufacturer. I have been unsuccessful in locating a list of error beep codes on FoxConn's website.

The computer was recently given to me by a relative and I was told it worked fine when it was last used. I can't imagine any possible damage that could have occured during transportation, but who knows. All connections from power supply to motherboard and devices inside appear to be good. With the exception of the printer, all peripheral devices were plugged in prior to power up.

Long continuous loud beeping sound coming from the foxconn a7vmx-s motherboard. Please help

These are called Beep Codes. The kind of beep indicates that the motherboard cannot post, and gives you some idea of what is wrong. These codes should be located in the booklet that came with your motherboard or the computer. You can also try the computer manufacturers website, hopefully they posted a manual for your computer.

Phoenix bios two long beeps one short then continuous long beeps, no video. Foxconn mobo C1 LED post error.

According to:

sounds like a memory problem. Take out all your memory cards and replace them one at a time (in different slots) until you find a configuration that works. then add in the other cards until you get the error message again.

Hi b33mboy, here is the link for you're board, suggest you add this to you're favorites.
The bios for you're board is called Award (Phoenix). The beep code definitions can be found here at this link.
Try re-seating you're video card. Reboot (listen for beeps).
Though, I did not see a description for two short beeps.
Suggest you remove you're memory if you have more than one DIMM installed. Check each DIMM one at a time. (Again listen for beeps at boot up).
If you want to test you're memory you can download a free memory test program that allows you to create either a Bootable floppy diskette or a bootable CD. Click the link below.
Scroll down the page until you see the three
( -= Screenshots =- ). Just below them you'll find,
** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) ** typed in red.
Pick you're choice.
Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)
Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)

If I can be of more service, just post back

Failed POST

Foxconn uses the Award bios. One beep repeating means, check for improperly seated or missing memory. You can find that here.
Remove your memory & re-seat.

Good luck!
