Did you check your monitor with other system or individually. If it
works fine in these conditions then the issue belongs to your pc. First
of all, you have to confirm that is it the problem of VGA itself or the
motherboard. For this, you have to see that does system beep when you
start it because system with beeps having the error and the beep sound
with continuous or 2-3 beeps relate with different issues. I am going to
write down the beep conditions.
1 short beep
Normal POST - system is ok
2 short beeps
POST Error - error code shown on
Power supply or system board problem
Power supply, system board, or
Repeating short beeps
Power supply or system board problem
1 long, 1 short beep
System board problem
1 long, 2 short beeps
Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps
Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA)
3 long beeps
3270 keyboard card
what device? is *********** board won't start? Or a hardware doesn't start like ram or your printer If the problem is your motherboard check all your hardwares and connectors like this:
If the motherboard won't start if you click the power button check the LED(the small light bulb on your motherboard) if its glowing. If not, check the connector of your power supply or check the power supply if its working by looking its fan if revolving.
If you push the button and there's a sign of power but didn't start up that will appear on your screen check the connection of your monitor screen to your desktop computer. If it's connected, remove your RAM from the motherboard and insert it to another memory slot to check if it's broken.
Last, if you push the power button and here 1 short beep but the boot screen didn't appeared from your screen check your graphic card. Remove the graphic card and re-insert it again to its graphic card slot and plug in your monitor connector to it. If it still remain that way, buy a new graphic card.
If this is the first time to turn you on your computer check first the power supply of your computer if connected to their proper connector. Check your memory if clip properly in there memory slot. If you are using Video Card check it if it is properly connected to the connector. Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.
No Beep- No Power, Loose Card, or Short. One Short Beep- Normal Post,, Computer is OK. 2 Short Beep- POST error, review screen for error code Continues Beep- No power, Loose Card, or Short Repeating Short Beep- No Power Loose Card or Short One Long And Short Beep- Motherboard Issue One Long and Two Short Beep- Video (mono/CGA Display Circuitry) Issue. One long and three short beep- Video (EGA) Display Circuitry Three Long Beep- Keyboard/ Keyboard Card Error One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display -Video Display Circuitry

Below are the AMI BIOS Beep codes that can occur. However, because of the wide variety of different computer manufacturers with this BIOS, the beep codes may vary.
Beep Code Descriptions Document 1 short DRAM refresh failure CH000996 2 short Parity circuit failure CH000607 3 short Base 64K RAM failure CH000996 4 short System timer failure CH000607 5 short Process failure CH000607 6 short Keyboard controller Gate A20 error CH000383 7 short Virtual mode exception error CH000607 8 short Display memory Read/Write test failure CH000607 9 short ROM BIOS checksum failure CH000607 10 short CMOS shutdown Read/Write error CH000239 11 short Cache Memory error CH000607 1 long, 3 short Conventional/Extended memory failure CH000996 1 long, 8 short Display/Retrace test failed CH000607
These sounds are known as BIOS beep codes. They indicate an error with your system. Traditionally, 1 long and 1 short indicates a system board problem. If you google bios beep codes, you will be able to find the codes that relate to your Bios, or motherboard. Backup your files. Your computer is trying to tell you something.
The 2 extra wires will most probably be temperature sensors.
If your using the onboard video, then make sure you have memory in the first DIMM slot (it will say DIMM1 beside it)
If that dosn't solve the problem then try these:
Remove the memory and reseat it. Make sure to put it back in the correct way. There is a notch towards one end that will match the notch of the memory slot. Press it in until the 2 clips lock fully, then give it a gentle wiggle side to side while pushing down still.
Listen to the beeps your computer makes when starting up. A single short beep is what you want to hear. If you hear. If you hear something else then post back what it does. There are long and short beeps that could be involved.
Disconnect all the IDE cables from the back of the drives. You can leave the power cables connected. When they go back in they also have a notch and can only go in one way.
Try those for a start and post any progress you make. Also just double check the video cable is correctly attached at both ends to the computer and to the monitor.
Starting the PC without memory will result in a ?beep code? error, which is the beeping you are hearing. Replacing the memory should make the beeping go away. As far as accessing your BIOS if you PC won?t display anything they accessing your system BIOS won?t accomplish anything.
-When you start your PC with the memory installed do you see anything displayed on the screen?
-Was the PC operating correctly before your reinstall?
-Why did you void the CMOS?
-Why did you remove the PC memory?
