No video to check/change bios and beeping every 2 seconds. DIMM 1, well seated, 1024 MB, PC3200, 400 MHZ DDR

Hi, having no display when switching on the computer may occur for several reasons but the main reasons are often a bad seated or faulty ram or a damaged vga card that you may also try to re seat and clean before replacing .

I hope that it will help you & don't forget to rate post

Kind regards

No Display on boot up

When a motherboard does not beep that isnt good news and its either the Motherboard or CPU. Have you fot the FSB settings correct on the board? Is your power Supply Good? Does your graphics card need power and is it plugged in? Unfortunately the only way to findout exactly is at fault is through a process of elimination. Can you try a different power supply first? Also try removing the CPU and re-seating it. If not, then you need to try and get hold of another motherboard and see if everything works in that. If not then it could be the CPU. Diagnosing CPU or MOTHERBOARD is always tricky without spares. Good luck

I have a zebronics mother board with intel 845 chip. Now whem i power on that it give long beep and no disply,RAM is ok, then what i can do?

Hi ieb_amit,

Typically a long single beep indicates that your display adapter or card is bad. If you haven't put in a new graphics card, then I might suggest doing so, to eliminate the beep.

Good Luck

It does not start, gives one long beep (about 2-3 seconds) silence and beep again

Switching DDR cards solved the problem. I was getting long beeps every 2 seconds. No short beeps. Just one long beep every 2 seconds. Thanks Josh Whitehead.

L7vmm mb. display went out. Monitor works on

Dear User. to plug in the AGP card you dont need to check or see the CMOS. if u have pluged an AGP card and problem still persist then the problem is at *********** side or in RAM. just plug out RAM and other hardware except Processor and cables of switches. the switch on it and if it gives beep then your motherboard and processor is OK. there would be problem in your RAM so change RAM. and if it dont give the beep at startup then the problem is in your motherboard or power supply.

My Mb does not give any sign, . What can I do ? Everything is desconnected except power on the Mb and the Mb switch. I switch the machine on and the only thing works is the CPU fan No any beep

Sometimes you have to have the motherboard , power , cpu , memory and 1 drive connected (IE the basic components) to get the system running

Also check the jumper settings where the board connects to the power switch on the case

Wont post.

Try a few things for me OK? From what you typed, turned on the psu "the toggle switch on the psu", pc seemed to be starting up. I need you to keep the toggle switch on the power supply in the on position. Press and hold the start button on the PC case to shut it down. Give it a few seconds & power up by pressing the power switch on the case. Notice a differance? Next, unplug everything connected to the pc expect the monitor, mouse & keyboard. Try to boot. Still no? Remove the side of the case exposing the board. Turn the psu off by flipping the toggle switch on the psu, wait till the green light on the board goes out. Grab the Mb ( I know it's tight in there) and see if you can move the board in any direction. Not loose? Re-check all data & power connections for a solid connect. Re-check your case to Mb connections. Also check the PSU, there is a red slide switch it should be set to 115v. Post your findings..

Problem with GA 8LD533

There are a few easy fixes for this, first,

Clear the CMOS (Unplug the power cord, remove the battery, and (if it's an option) move the jumper J1 (it has three pins, the jumper covers two, move it to cover the other one), unplug everything external from the motherboard apart from the PSU and power switch and speaker, replace battery, powercord, and jp1, power up - what happens?
