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.

Compaq G6000 will not start and the screen is black but I can hear the fan like it wants to start

do you feel that hot air is coming out from it? if so you should look up for any beep or sound that comes as a code.
1. three beep sound for ram
2. one short two long or two short one long for vga card
try to clean and replace your ram, or graphics card if it in not build in.

After turning on it turns off automatically after 3-4 seconds

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. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

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.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

No video after replacing chip fan

Try a different video-card -- a "no-spin" fan and "no-video" implies a dead video-card (or at least a video-card that is not "seated' properly).

Check that the PC-speaker leads are connected to the motherboard, so that you could hear any "beep" codes. There should be one "beep" to indicate 'OK', or multiple "beeps" (bad RAM, no video-card detected).

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 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..

When i start my laptop nothing happens except i hear i beep.I press the power button again and i hear one beep.After about six times an xp page comes on that says windows did not load sucessfully.I go to...

Try starting windows in safe mode by tapping F8 repeatedly right after you press the power button - a black and white screen will appear asking if you want to start in safe mode - the arrow keys select the mode, press enter, let it load fully then use the start menu to shut down and restart normally. Windows is simply telling you it cannot load properly this restores a good configuration again for it to use. Regarding wiggling the power cord - possibly the plugin is either loose or broken inside and the joints that connect it may have to be resoldered, the case has to be taken apart for that. One beep usually means all is well on IBM, three beeps indicate a problem, not necessarily only memory. The bios (F1 or F2 usually) may contain an error log indicating exactly what the problem is and will be indicated by a number code - IBM has a list on their site of what the number codes mean. Occasionally the error code may display on the screen upper corner on start up if you wait for it to show after the beeps.

No power up

Here was the fix for me. The machine refuses to boot if the video card is not functioning. It should have one long beep however to tell you that there is a video problem. Someone hooked up our speaker incorrectly though! So we got no beeps. Once the speaker was hooked up and the video card was replaced, all is well!
