Try resetting the bios to defaults by clearing the cmos.

First switch off at wall and remove power leads. The push on button to discharge capacitors on board.

The jumper will be located near the bios battery and chip usually at the bottom right of motherboard. Move the jumper to the clear position and leave for a few mins. Then put back into normal postition and start pc up.

If that fails to clear it then repeat but remove the battery from the motherboard too and wait longer.

Hope that sorts it for you?

    Just a long shot but try holding the "insert" key down on keyboard during boot as that used to work on some of the socket A boards i owned in the past.

    Was there anything funny happening before this started? Have you had a good look over the motherboard to check for damaged compenents or bulging/leaking caps? Quiet a common problem on older boards

    example are shown there of what your looking for.

    Do you have a spare psu you could try?

    Three beeps at interval no thing on monitor. what can i do? ihad just loaded a new os and was working fine.i shut down and change memory stick.turn back on and hear these origin memory...

    Beeps are mainly caused by bad, dusty memory module or the port it is connected to. However, since you have tried changing it with a working one and i suppose you already clean it that's fine. One more hardware which causes beeps is the video card. If you have a video card installed, it may be moved when you change the memory module. I suggest you try to reseat the video card as well..

    Hope that works

    Can you elaborate the functions of this product....

    The following applies to motherboards such as an AsRock K7S41GX.
    It does NOT apply to motherboards supporting the Intel Core i3, i5, i7, and i9 processors.

    1) Motherboard diagram,

    A) CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
    The 'Brain' of the computer.

    B) Front Side Bus. Also abbreviated as FSB.
    The FSB is the 'Information Highway' between the Processor, and the Northbridge chip.

    [Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
    Integrated Circuit, ]

    C) The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

    The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
    It is named NORTHbridge, because on the orientation of the motherboard, it is to the North of the motherboard.

    The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the computer.

    D) The Northbridge handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.
    AGP and PCI Express are high speed graphic technologies.

    A graphics card used in a PCI expansion slot, and Integrated Graphics are NOT high speed graphics.

    E) The Southbridge handles Integrated Graphics, (OnBoard graphics. Same/same), and the PCI bus.
    A graphics card inserted into a PCI expansion slot is one example of Southbridge support.

    Any add-in card inserted into a PCI expansion slot, is in the PCI bus.
    Therefore handled by the Southbridge chip.

    The Southbridge chip also handles IDE (PATA), and SATA harddrives.
    Handles USB ports, Ethernet port/s, audio, and the CMOS memory.

    F) The Internal Bus is the 'Information Highway' between the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

    G) The LPC Bus is the 'Information Highway' between the Southbridge chip, and the Super I/O chipset.
    The LPC Bus is also the 'Information Highway' between the Southbridge chip, and the BIOS chipset.

    H) The Super I/O chipset handles,
    Serial port
    Parallel port
    Floppy Disk Drive


    The AsRock K7S41GX has;

    A) Socket A processor socket. Also known as Socket 462

    Can use AMD processors that fit in a Socket A processor socket, and have either a 200MegaHertz, 266MHz, or 333MHz FSB.

    Here is the CPU Support List,

    Supports DDR Sdram ram memory at either 266MHz, or 333MHz.
    PC2100 and PC2700, respectively.

    Maximum TOTAL Amount of Ram Memory is 2GB
    Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.
    There are two ram memory slots.

    Has an AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) graphics expansion slot, that supports AGP 4X , or AGP 8X graphics cards. (1.5 Volt)

    Has two PCI expansion slots

    Supports IDE (PATA) harddrive/s. (2 maximum)
    Supports IDE optical drives. (CD or DVD, or burners for both)

    The motherboard chipset is a SiS 741GX - Northbridge, and the SiS 963L - Southbridge

    upon checking your motherboard, it has an AGP port for video. so you have to get an AGP video card compatible. New video cards are PCIX capable which will not fit AGP ports..

    So you can get any AGP Video card and that should work.

    I just installed a used Asrock K7S41GX board which is working just fine exept I have no sound through my external speakers. The internal speaker on the the board beeps on startup but nothing after that. Do...

    If you hear just one short beep on the onboard speaker it means that everything is fine. You should download the drivers for the onboard sound from Asrock website.

    Asrock K7S41/K7S41GX problem

    2 x DDR DIMM slots
    - Supports DDR400/333 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
    - Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

    3 beeps is usually either video card related, or memory. be sure your memory is UN buffered, and DDR400 or 333 DIMM not DRam.

    Remove and re-seat your video card as well.

    there should be a troubleshooting guide in your install manual stating the designation of 3 beeps.

    Asrock K7S41GX "NEW" does not work :bip-bip-bip

    3 beeps is a memory error. remove the memory and put it in the first slot.
    also the memory replacement calls for ddr pc2700.

    Beep Beep Beep

    How many beeps? There should be a sequence of beeps. Are they all the same, or are some short beeps and some long? Please clarify so I may help you further.

    This should be a fool-proof procedure, selecting automatically between AGP or on board video.
    If the other components, especially memory, are installed properly and you're not getting any beep codes, it sounds like a faulty board.
