Re: problem with my newly built pc


The information for that specific motherboard lists beep codes for 3 beeps or 4 beeps. 3 beeps signals a memory error, 4 beeps signals a thermal warning.

The PDF is here.

Additional information on beep codes can be found at this site.

Hope this helps! If not, let me know and I will try to find more information.

Good luck!

Boooting or start up beeping noise.

Have you made any hardware changes to your PC? I would suggest you attempt to start your PC in safe mode by pressing F10 during boot up and troubleshooting from there.

Won't start...3 short beeps, pause and continuous repeat

This is a hardware warning, Usually memory modules the way to test that is take one of them out at a time if the beeping stops that is the one that is bad you can do this for all of your hardware parts inside. even DVD or CD burners just remove the power from each one of the hardware suspects. Upon doing this you will find the part that has malfunctioned you will need to replace it. John

How can i boot up when there is a beeping noise

A beeping computer can generally mean some bad/corrupt memory and the PC will not boot until it is remedied. You will need to power off the PC, ensuring you unplug the power cable each time. Take out a piece of memory, at a time, leaving the other memory, still in the PC, depending upon how the memory is read based upon the motherboard reading the dim (memory) slots, power back up and re-try. It is basically a process of elimination, until you find the bad memory. Also, depending upon your Dell model, there maybe some diagnostic lights at the rear of the PC to also indicate where the issue may lie, albeit, memory, motherboard, graphics, etc.

Continuous short beep when start... no boot up, already change the power supply and few rams for testing, but no change. should the motherborad or cpu fail?

processor failure does not produce beeping sounds, are you sure that your extra rams are working? try to change the video card if you have the removable one. then if you're using the built in video card, try removing the sound card and modem cards or lan cards.beeping sounds is only for ram errors and any other hardware but not limited to motherboards. by the way try to clean the slot for rams, video cards and others. this would help.

When starting continuous beep sound

Hello sir, your pc has memory problems, continuous beeping is caused by undetected memory modules. Open the unit and locate the memory cards, remove and re-seat them. do this several times until the pc responds. ELSE you may have system board problems.

Beeping upon startup and nothing else.

You need to check the RAM that is the first causes of beeping your system unit. Try to remove the RAM and clean the dust and re insert it. Try to use the other memory slot. You can try it 3 times. Thank you!
