Question about Soltek SL-K8AN2E (SL-K8AN2E-GR) Motherboard

Continous Beeping sound


There is a continuous beeping sound whenever I turn on the power. Initially, I thought it was the PSU. But with the PSU not connected to the motherboard, there isn't any beeping sound. Once I attach the PSU to the motherboard and turn on the power, there is a beeping sound.

Re: Continous Beeping sound

Hi neosw,

Could you provide a little more detail?

Was this a previously working set-up or is this a new build?

If this was a previously working set-up have you changed anything?

When you switch on the PC

  • do you see anything on the screen, does the monitor remain in standby?
  • are any of the fans running?
  • does the hard drive spin up?
  • does the beeping sound stop after a short while?
The reason I ask these questions is because a continues beeping usually means that the BIOS is not seeing the processor, or that the power to the processor is not correct. With some BIOS manufactures it can also mean the processor clock speed is not set

Please don't take this the wrong way but...if you provide greater detail in your question, the easier it for us to diagnose your problem, otherwise we can only make educated guesses.

I hope this has been of some help.

Hi, Do this beeping code for motherboard troubleshooting. First disconnect all memory,external video card, etc only motherboard and power supply. Then power on if you hear continuous beeping means the motherboard working good. Please do this beeping code troubleshooting.
No beeping means Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals. One beeping means Everything is normal and Computer posted fine. Two beeping means POST/CMOS Error. One Long Beep, One Short Beep means Motherboard Problem.
One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps means Video Problem.
One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps means Video problem.
Repeated Long Beeps means memory error.
Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps means CPU Overheating.

Continous beeps usually mean the motherboard or the power supply, Try another power supply first and see if it will boot, if not the motherboard is faulty, if the prossesor was faulty you would no beeps the fans would run but nothing on the screen. hope this helps.

Loud beeping sound on start up , now will not start up , power ok

First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Continuous short beeps on power up.Then shuts down and trys again, then repeats beep sequence. 21 beeps in total before attempts to reboot. Power - 550W Q9400 Intel ESC 9600GT Video card 8 Gig DDR2

enter bios setup and check the temperature of your mobo and cpu if it's above normal and also check the cpu fan's speed if theres no problem with these three then try to remove all the expansion cards you have then reset the memory modules if the beeping continues try a different PSU and memory modules.
