Kinda sounds like a short, have you made sure youre motherboard is screwed in with ground case screws? Ive done this one by mistake and got these same errors, also a fried board after a while. You also need ram in it as well before it will give a display, also if you have a second video car dinstalled you may have the monitor in the wrong video card slot, common mistake. If your bios is hosed then you will need to by a new board if you dont wanna solder a new bios chip to the board

Soyo k7v dragon plus motherboard continuous


2 beeps = memory problems. Since you get them even after the memory has been replaced then the problem is in the motherboard itself. Check the capacitors for bulging. If you can't find ones or you can't replace them then the motherboard is dead.

Hi Jopav1,

At the age of *********** board, I would recommend physically looking at the board, in particular, the large upright capacitors. If the tops are bulging, or have anything leaking out of them, send the board to a recycler, and look for an exact replacement on the used market, or replace with new. I just bought the same board you have today for $25, with AMD 1800 CPU.

At 10 years of age, the battery is probably past due for replacement too. It is a standard CR2032 3Volt battery. If you replace it quickly, you may not loose your BIOS settings.

If you have a volt meter, you can check your power supply voltages. Again, your manual will show what voltages to expect at each power connector pin. A range of +/- .05V is generally allowable on all sources.

Also try unplugging all boards and powering it up. The beep should change to a sequence of 2-1-3-1 beeps, indicating that it's not able to see the video card. If you still only get a repeated long beep, It's possible that the CPU itself may have died. These are also available very cheap at this point. The fact that you are getting a cycling beep indicates to me that the CPU is OK though.

I looked up beep patterns and did not find anything for one long repeating beep for the Phoenix BIOS on your board. There is no mention of them in the Soyo manual either.

Last resort is resetting your BIOS settings to "First Birthday", and try again. This will require you to re-set any manual settings you had set previously (probably 10 years ago). This is done by moving the jumper located between the green LED, and the battery, to the two pins nearest the LED, for a second, and then back to the position nearest the battery.

Good luck

Soyo KT400L-2AA5 Motherboard - CMOS checksum error - Defaults loa


This message is usually accompanied by another more explicit, like: "Memory changed from 1GB to 2GB. Press F1 to continue". The message should display and go away after pressing F1. Since you cannot press F1 because the keys do nothing, chances are your keyboard is disconnected, which should display a message indicating this failure.
Try pressing the ScrLk (Scroll Lock) key as messages are being displayed to catch all
messages (they go by quickly) and stop them before they disappear.
If that's the case, then reconnect the keyboard and try again.
Good luck!
