Re: Three Long Beeps

Try cleaning the motherboard and the additional cards. Also try changing the RAM module(s).

Because you here the beeps...there should be nothing wrong in your motherboard.

Hello here is the ASUS homepage:

Here is a list of beep codes:

Your pci-e graphic card is failing or has a defect.
The problem could also be the power supply, not giveing enough power.
When you add a pci-e graphic card on the mainboard, the onboard graphic should deactivate itselves.
Try to remove the pci-e graphic card, and use the onboard graphic.
If still no picture, change the power supply.
Its not possible to change settings in the bios blindfolded.
You can reset the bios by removeing the cmos battery.
But ofcouse it could also be the mainboard itselves failing.
This is rarely happening, so i hope its just the power supply.
Try also to look for visual defects on the mainboard, especially the condensators on the mainboard.

Good luck

Can a PCI video card be installed on the Intel SE7501BR2 server board? My onboard video has color problems. I tried a known-working PCI video board after turning off onboard video, but got no video...

Most of the time you'll need to change a setting in the BIOS to force the computer to recognize the PCI slot first. Try going through your BIOS settings until you find it. It should be something like "Display First" or Primary, and it should be set to onboard graphics. Try changing that to PCI and see if that fixes your problem.

Bios code 1x long, 2x short. according to other forums it's a videocard issue, but this one has got an onboard video card. what do I do now?

One long and two short beeps is actually a RAM error code, not video. Remove your memory and reinstall it, making sure it's properly latched. The modules sometimes work loose. If the error continues and you have only a single module installed, replace it. Otherwise remove both modules and reinstall one at a time. If only one is bad, the system will start up with the good one.

Try removing your memory and than reseat it. One DIMM at a time and boot the system in-between each.
Still hear the double beeps? Its possible one DIMM may be defective. Continue.
Clear the bios. See page 1-7 in your manual. When the bios has been reset everything will revert to default settings. The onboard graphics will give you back video. Enter the bios and set the bios so the PCI-E card is used. Save and exit. (Most likely your PCI-E card also needs a power adapter connected).
If the system goes back to double beeps try removing the PCI-E card and than reseat it. (Possible loose connection).

Happy 4th!

About the size of onboard graphic

Onboard-Video: Intel GMA 3100 Graphics Controller, w/ 256MB Shared Memory
Video Slots: 1x PCI-Express x16 Slot
source: Note: I quickly checked Asus's website and the manual (
) but it didn't appear to give a direct answer.

Also note that even if the motherboard supports both onboard+PCI-E, G31(GMA3100) graphics wouldn't help much at all, trust me. You'll want to buy a new PCI-E card if you plan on doing any gaming. Not knowing what game(s) you plan to play, your budget, and what processor you have makes it tough to suggest an exact video card. So, check out this site to select the best card for your budget and game play:

You can definitely get a real good card for under $100. Perhaps a Radeon HD 4850. Lastly, I highly recommend you buy from

Problems with Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS Motherboard memory upgrade

This is an oldtime POST code memory error. Likely that ram is either installed wrong, bad RAM or the mobo doesn't like one of the memory sticks.


You must count the beeps.

Motherboard startup problem!!

If your video is running off the card then remove the cable and plug it into onboard vga. Then remove the card from the slot. That should solve it then you will need to reinstall drivers for video card. If your monitor is running from onboard video then you will need to remove the card then try turning it on.

Need help disableing onboard video, and installing PCIe video card.

Hi rebelel1271, I do have the manual for you're Intel motherboard. You can have it as well. Click on the link below to download you're manual. document.write("D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals") D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals
Intel states you do not need to make any bios changes when you add a PCI-Express video card. See this on page 17, PCI and PCI Express Auto Configuration. Before installing you're PCI-E video card, open windows controll panel. Than open add/remove programs. Look for the driver software for you're onboard ATI Radeon X200. Uninstall that software. (If listed). Close all opened windows & shut down windows. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open the case. Install you're new ATI Radeon X800 PCI-E video card. Double check all internal connections, (In case you may have bumped loose any cables). You're X800 may also have a 3-pin or 4-pin male power connector built on the card. If so, plug power to the X800.
Intel D101GGC driver page.*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21#DOC
ATI's web site for the latest driver's.
A little information. Once you're PCI-E has been installed. You're system memory will increase.

Good Luck!
If I can help you further, feel free to post here.

This type of problem is so common nowadays. What I did is open up the casing, pulled out the RAM and by using pencil eraser, rubbed the contact pattern. Put it back and turn on your computer. Always work for me and hope it might work for you too.
