Are you sure the ram is compatible with the mobo? Try taking all but one stick of RAM out and see if it still does it.

The long beeps tend to point to a RAM problem, or it's possible it can't "find" a hard drive.

Some motherboards support dual channel (you'll see different color slots), and some don't. If you try to put the sticks in dual channel configuration, and the cpu or the motherboard doesn't support dual channel, you may experience this.

If you have different color slots, put one stick in one color slot, and another stick in the other color, or vice versa.

The manual "should" tell you the proper configuration for this, and may even tell you what the beeps stand for.

If you can post the make / model of all the components, I can do the "dirty work" for you and see it if should all work together.

Cdc-m computer will not come on the on light works case fans comes on but that is all


Do you mean that your computer does not turn on just casing light lit on and Fan runs only? What means new, memory and case?

If just lights on, fan runs but no image on monitor or blank screen, you should hear some kind of sound form inside of the CPU casing. This is called beep code. If you hear continuous beep or 3 same beep with same length, it means your motherboard is missing RAM, just connect it properly. If does not work or stop try a good RAM installing to see the result and plug your this RAM to a working machine that have the same kind of RAM.
If you hear one long beep with two short beep After PC switching on, or Two long beep with one short beep following - that means your Graphics card is not connected properly, or damaged or miss matching. If you do not have any beep code after switching on the machine, your motherboard may not have build in emergency speaker. Try to clear this things first. Please mention details of your computer with model number of your motherboard. Let me know updates.

CANT BOOT . ONLY PROCESSOR FAN MOVING. I AM H/W


Disassemble the machine completely and clean the Heatsink fan, blow away the dusts from the motherboard, if possible use brush to wipe away all the dusts. Reassemble it, but don't connect or install anything on the motherboard except the the power supply, the cpu with the heatsink and the system speaker. Now plug in the mouse, keyboard and the monitor (please connect the monitor on the integrated VGA port on the motherboard). Plug in the power chord on the back and short the two terminals of the power switch pins on the motherboard's Front Panel connectors, i.e PWR and GND with a screwdriver or with any metallic object you think is suitable (shown below):

Remember to switch on the mains switch (wall outlet connected to the power supply) and make sure both the power connectors on the mother is connected, i.e. 20 pins and 4 pins.
Check the status on the monitor and listen the beep codes (the system speaker is compulsory for this diagnosis). If you see anything on the display or if you could hear the beeps, note the beep sequence (let me know if it's not 2 beeps or 3 beeps, if it's 2 or 3 beeps, the proceed forward), Switch off the machine and install one memory stick (Ram) and reboot. If it was 2 or 3 beeps, then you should no longer hear them, if you still hear the same beeps, then try with another Ram on another SIM bank(s) [Ram slot] after the machine is put Off and boot again.

If you don't hear anything or you don't see anything on the monitor, then your motherboard is bad or perhaps the integrated video card is dead or it could be the BIOS chip itself. I would suggest you to replace it, as it's not worth repair. Buying a new one will cost you less then repairing this motherboard under such circumstances.

If you see or the beeps continues, try with another working Ram, it should definitely work if the Memory module on the motherboard is still working, otherwise.. I would again recommend you to replace it.

Well, in case if it's successfully booted or the display is ok, then proceed forward by installing the component one by one and reboot everytime you install a component or plug in connector (s). You'll be able to find out the culprit, whether the hdd, or the Dvd/Cd drive or the front panel switches or others.... Will need to replace or will need to repair.

Please update so that I will be able to assist you further.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have an Emachine T2865 that I'm working in class since the fan and the RAM where not working. I bought new ones for the machine, but now when you try to start the pc it makes a beep constantly and it...


Hello,

First off, unhook the cd-rom's, and the Hdd's. Plug all the cords into the back monitor, keyboard and mouse only.

Is the video on the motherboard ? Or is it PCI, AGP, PCI-E...?

The problem is probably the memory itself. Use one stick of memory and try it. If that one doesnt work then use a different one. Sounds like either a bad stick of memory, or incompatible.

Also make sure that your processor is installed correctly and the CPU fan is securely connected and plugged in.

These two problems do cause most PC's to beep several times in error. So use known good parts, and use process of elimination to correct the issue.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,
-Daniel

Problem with pc


You probably need to check the cooling fan setup ( some motherboards give the control on the task manager or a sperate software to control it) This seems to be a problem of overheating which might have started after the installation of new ram.

My system doesnt start


if no beeps (remove the RAM and for sure has to beep if the motherboard is OK) at all and no video signal you may look to:
1. a new PS - power supply or
2. a new CPU or
3. a new motherboard.

Problem of motherboard


Could be a power supply fault, motherboard fault, or fan fault. Many new motherboards will not power up if the fan doesn't rotate, to prevent the processor getting fried.
