    My 101 I/O ROM error message is accompanied by one beep and appears after the red Compaq screen. I more or less manage to get round it by using Control-Option-Delete and forcing the start-up with rapid use of these keys just before the error message appears. Sometimes I shut down and disconnect printer, power and USB hard drive. Each successive start-up takes more time, however, and it looks like I'm running out of time...

    removed the modem/LAN-card from underneath its
    cover.
    Just remove the two screws the
    cover is fastened with, then gently easy up the inner side of the card
    which is set in the slot, then remove the two cables connected to the
    card, and voila... you're done...

    if that doesnt work
    My suggestion is to remove everything CD Drive,
    battery, extra RAM, hard drive and see if it boots if it does add
    components one by one and see if the error returns put them back in in
    this order:
    hard drive
    battery
    CD drive

Sounds like it could be a connection problem. sometimes when items like the keyboard connector or cd rom connector get dirty it doesnt work properly and the bios cannot detect it correct.

Thanks so much i will give it a shot, i think i may have caused the problem when i tried to use the "install new hardware" on using a direct internet connection to my intranet jack so perhaps that may just solve the problem.

I will give it a shot and let you know, thanks.

if you are sure there is one long beep and one short beep then it is a hardware issue most probably motherboard issue or else video card issue. get it inspected by a technician there.

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops


Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm#05 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to memtest.org Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike

Problem booting


Hi,

Any beep code from pheonix starting with two beeps relates to ram issues. If you have treid swapping the ram and it only gives the first 2 beeps then most likely the RAM controller on the north bridge or the data channels themselves are damaged on the motherboard.

You can try running a single chip of ram in each slot at seperate attempts. If it is a data channel damaged this will bypass the problem although it will cripple the laptops performance. Either way, the only permanent and proper fix would be to replace the oBo which I doubt would be cost effective on this unit.
