    I have the same probem. When Windows runs, the motherboard BEEPS, don't know why. The beeps come from the internal speaker and from the soundcard.

    I have Linux in my machine but with linux doesn't beep. I'm trying to disable the integrated soundcard and plugging an external, but the internal speaker still beeps.

    I have large experience repairing PCs, but this makes me loose the head because it's MY PC.

    I changed the memories, the VGA card, but it still beeps.

P5KPL-AM speaker beep


Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Sadael.

Yes some-times the case/computer chassis does not have an internal BIOS/CMOS beep code speaker built in.

So what you will need to do is go to your local computer store and purchase a mainboard beep code speaker. You may even find it online at your favorite computer store.

The modern speaker is very small compared to the older mainboard beep code speakers.

Your computer will continue to work without the speaker, the beep code speaker is there to help diagnose/troubleshoot problems when they occur.

Take care!

Amber light on the motherboard is on i hear several beeps and it doesn't boot up


Usually beeps emitting from the computer indicate a memory error.. Try to re-seat the memory modules. If that doesn't work then try removing 1 module at a time to see if you have a bad memory stick.

On button flashes yellow but wont turn on


unplug the power cable for 10secs. press the power button while its unplug to remove all the electricity in the cpu. connect the power cable and then press the button. if you hear a beeping sound when you turn on the cpu, you have a problem with the motherboard. if no beeping sound, check the 4 diagnostics lights at the back of the cpu, advtrbl5.jpgMemory modules are detected, but a memory failure has occurred.
  • If you have one memory module installed, reinstall it and restart the computer.
  • If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
  • If available, install properly working memory of the same type into your computer.
  • If the problem persists, see "Contacting Dell" in your Owner's Manualfor instructions on obtaining technical assistance

  1. Determine if a conflict exists by removing a card (not the video card) and then restarting the computer.
  2. If the problem persists, reinstall the card that you removed, remove a different card, and then restart the computer.
  3. Repeat this process for each card. If the computer starts normally, troubleshoot the last card removed from the computer for resource conflicts (see "Resolving Software and Hardware Incompatibilities" in the Owner's Manual).
  4. If the problem persists, see "Contacting Dell" in your Owner's Manualfor instructions on obtaining technical assistance.

  • If the computer has a video card, remove the card and reinstall it, and restart the computer.
  • If the problem still exists, install a video card that you know works and restart the computer.
  • If the problem persists or the computer has integrated video, see "Contacting Dell" in your Owner's Manual.

My motherboard gives 8 beeps and shows no video, I tested with several video cards and gives the same result. when the computer beeps (normal as it recognizes that although the bios), then emits...


Continious beep codes are caused by the memory (RAM). Try reseating your RAM just plug it out clean it then put it back in. Or try the other memory slots. Just transfer your memory to the other slot if you have an available slot on your motherboard. Or simply buy a new memory (RAM). Just make sure it is compatible to your motherboard. Beep codes means the computer is not reading the memory (RAM) properly. There is no post and no video in your computer because the RAM is not working properly.

No display and no beep sound, CPU fan working


Hmmm, I have seen a few people reporting this problem with this motherboard... seems to me that it might be a bug in the bios. Well, I had exactly the same problem. It did not even give a beep sound when the memory was completely removed. I was convinced that the motherboard was faulty. Then I thought of trying the following that helped:

On the board the JCMOS1 has 3 pins and pins 1 and 2 are closed in normal operation. Moving the jumper to pins 3 and 4 puts the motherboard in clear CMOS memory mode. So this is what I tried; I move the jumper to pins 3 and 4, pressed power a few times (although I don't think that is necessary), and after about 30 seconds I moved the jumper back to pins 1 and 2. Then when I pressed power the motherboard FINALLY emitted a beep and started up. On first start up I got a message, something to the effect of "CMOS checksum error", but I was then able to go into the bios reset defaults. I then saved and went out and my motherboard has been working fine since then. Hope this helps someone who has a similar issue.

Push the on button and nothing happens


I believe you are using a new power supply now.
Before you start, first check if your Power button is OK.

To do this, first unplug the power cord from your PC.

Remove POWER-Button connector (with black/white or blue/white wires) from you Motherboard
Remove RESET-Button connector (with black/white or blue/white wires) and put it on the place of POWER-Button. (polarity for these buttons is not important)
Plug the power cord back and press RESET.
Does it change things ?
If it starts, then your Power-Button is broken.

If not, remove the power cord and then put te POWER-Button and RESET-Button on their places on the Motherboard.

Now do the following:
(please remember the position and polarity of all cables/items you remove/unplug, Use Digital camera if necessary). Be patient, don't hurry!
- Unplug the power cord.
- Press power button few times (power cord is unplugged).
- Remove the Battery.
- Unplug the Monitor cable and remove VGA card.
- Remove RAM module(s).
- REMOVE any PCI cards(Modem. Lan, Audio etc.).
- Unplug any HDD/FDD/DVD cables from the Motherboard.
- Unplug Power from all your HDD/FDD/DVD devices.

Now:

- Put the batery back (be careful to the polarity)
- Put the Computer power cord
- Turn on your PC.

Is the Processor Cooler running ?
Are there Beeps from PC Speaker?

If not, then your Motherboard is broken !

If there are some beeps, then your Motherboard is OK, but some component(s) is broken.
Turn Off your PC by pressing the Power button for about 4 sec.
Unplug the power cord and press Power button few times.
Put your VGA back, and connect the monitor cable, too.
Put back ONLY ONE memory module (if there are more).
Connect the Power cord and press Power button.

Do you have a picture now ?
Are there Beeps from PC Speaker?

If you have a picture, put back all other memory modules and PCI cards, connect Data and Power cables to your HDD/FDD/DVD units, but ONE at TIME.
Do not connect and put everything back all at once!
After each change, see if there is a Pcture and (one) beep.
It needs some time but that's how you will detect which device/cable is maybe broken!
And remember:
Before you do any change, AALLWAYS do that with power cord unplugged and power button few times pressed !!!
If there are Beeps, try another memory module.

Again if there are still beeps, you have problem either with your RAM or VGA.
If there are infinite long beeps, than it is your RAM.
If there is one long and many (8) short beeps, then it is your VGA

Replace it!

Regards.

  1. Clean cooling components that have become clogged with dust. If beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  2. Remove a memory module. If the PC stops beeping, the memory module may be bad, is the wrong type of memory for the motherboard, or was not fully seated/connected. Try reseating the memory into the socket to see if a connection was the problem, otherwise replace the module. Remove each memory module, replacing the one that was previously removed. Once all modules have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  3. If your computer has a graphics card, remove it. If the beep code changes or continues with the same beep pattern, the video card may still be good. reseat the video card into its socket and continue to the next step. If the beep code goes away, the video card may be bad. Try reseating the video card, making sure it is fully locked into the connector on the motherboard. If problems persist, replace the card.
  4. Remove a PCI card. If the beep code goes away, the card may be bad. Try reseating the card into its connector on the motherboard. If problems persist, replace the card. Remove each PCI card, replacing the one that was previously removed. Once all cards have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  5. Disconnect hard drives and CD/DVD drive cables (IDE/ATA) from the motherboard socket. If the beep code goes away, the cable or socket is probably bad. Look for bent pins inside the IDE socket on the motherboard and straighten any bent pins. Try reseating the cables into the connectors. If problems persist, the drive itself may be bad and may need to be replaced. Disconnect each drive cable, replacing the one that was previously disconnected, until all have been checked. Once all connections have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  6. At this point, the problem probably involves the motherboard or processor. Make sure any jumpers on the motherboard have not fallen off their pins and into the case. Make sure jumpers are set correctly.
