Question about EliteGroup ECS AMD690GM-M2 Socket AM2 Motherboard

1 Answer

Black screen and beeping.

When I turn the power on all of the fans start spinning. I also hear beeping. The beeps are about three seconds apart. And I can't even get to the BIOS. I'm using the on board graphics I have my monitor plugged in and I get no picture at all.

    tried the battery and it didn't work. i'm going to borrow my friend's PCI-E graphics card tomorrow and see if that's it.

    i did a little research and found out that the beeping my be because the memory is not compatible with my motherboard. is that possible?

    i just switched out my old ram for 2 gigs (2x1) of patriot ram and the beeping stopped. but still no picture.

Will not start up/turn on


Can you hear any fans kick on? Can you hear the hard drive spin? If you have an extra computer swap hard drives to see if your drive crashed. Do you get any beeps? Listen to how many beeps it gives if it does beep and google your model and the amount of beeps it can help troubleshoot.

Compaq presario v6101uswont boot not even start up screen


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.


Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

Replace the fan or your computer will run hot and keep turning off.

I have a refurbished ibm netvista. when i turn it on, the cpu fan will start to spin for a few seconds, then i'll hear a weak beep, then the fan will stop spinning (power off), then the fan will...


Remove the hard drive and RAM. See what it does. It should go into BIOS and complain. If it doesn't you have a motherboard issue as it won't POST.

When i turn the power on, 3 beeps play, the fan runs and the power light comes on, but nothing else


Hearing ONE beep is normal, and a signal that the computer hardware is OK.

Hearing THREE beeps is a signal that something is wrong:
* burnt-out CPU,
* one of the fans is not spinning (clogged?) or spinning too slowly (about to seize-up),
* one of the RAM chips is defective
* the video-card is not working

If there is more than one RAM stick, remove all but one stick, and start it up, to see if it starts.

Check that the fans are spinning freely.

My compaq laptop F500 has black screen when power on


That sounds like a power supply problem. That would be the first thing I would check. If it was the processor, you would have heard a long beeping sound or if it was the memory you would hear about three 'annoying beeps'. The main reason you indicated there is no display on the screen and that the fan spins for a few seconds then shuts off, would hint that power is not going to the mother board long enough to spin the processor or cooling fan. Hope this helps :)

My 915-m5 mb starts but have no video. No sound except for fans and hd are noted, but no signal video is seen in monitor. Please answer to joitod@coqui.net at your earliest convenience. Thanks


do you get a single beep about 2 to 5 seconds after the system is powered up..? If no, then your mainboard IS NOT working. The fans and hard drives will still spin up even if the mainboard is not booting. You need to listen for that single beep as this tells you that the boards POST (power on self test) has completed and all is well. If it does not beep, then you have a mainboard issue. Reply to this and tell us if you hear this beep or not..
