    I'll try to give some more information;
    when I press the power button 1 short beep and at the end of the POST
    i got this massage,
    Checking NVram...Update OK
    007C
    0085
    50AC
    and then 1 long beep.
    After
    that goes into Windows.I don't see any stability problems or errors
    while working in windows.This is happening during every boot.
    Could this 1 long beep be problem with system Memory or EEPROM chip ?
    Should I be worried about motherboard,'cause if its system memory problem, that can be fixed with installing new memory chips,but motherboard with s478 would be much harder to find.

The Computer generates 1 beep. to state that the computer has set itself up properly, without errors. Depending on the bios manufacturer. i.e Pheonix or AMI et,c.
As long as your system is running fine with no crashes or errors.
Then this seems perfectly normal.

My pc is booting but no display


Did you check your monitor with other system or individually. If it works fine in these conditions then the issue belongs to your pc.
First of all, you have to confirm that is it the problem of VGA itself or the motherboard. For this, you have to see that does system beep when you start it because system with beeps having the error and the beep sound with continuous or 2-3 beeps relate with different issues. I am going to write down the beep conditions.

1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok 2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen No beep Power supply or system board problem Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem 1 long, 1 short beep System board problem 1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA) 1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) 3 long beeps 3270 keyboard card


best of luck!

Computers doesn't startup and has no beep


remove the RAM chip and start the computer without the ram chip inserted and see if you get beeps if yes the motherboard/bios is ok, even if you dont get to hear any beeps, try rubbing the edge of the ram which goes into the ram slot using a Eraser and then reinsert the same back in Ram slot and then see if you can at least get to bios and see if hard disk is detected as windows boots from hard disk if yes check if you can boot to windows if no may need to reinstall windows.please reply with results so that can help

Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.

NO SOUND HEAR


Hi, Do this beeping code for motherboard troubleshooting. First disconnect all memory,external video card, etc only motherboard and power supply. Then power on if you hear continuous beeping means the motherboard working good. Please do this beeping code troubleshooting.
No beeping means Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals. One beeping means Everything is normal and Computer posted fine. Two beeping means POST/CMOS Error. One Long Beep, One Short Beep means Motherboard Problem.
One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps means Video Problem.
One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps means Video problem.
Repeated Long Beeps means memory error.
Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps means CPU Overheating.

A8n-sli deluxe one long beep and end. Please help. Thanks


Hi krzysio007! If you hear a beep once you start the system and it does not go away, this might be the CPU fan not functioning correctly. Try disconnecting the fan, cleaning the connectors and then plugging it back again. I have a similar problem with a motherboard just like yours, and usually the beep goes away after it boots into Windows. Since this motherboard has an Award BIOS installed on it try these error codes: Here. Hope this helps you with the problem!

I have a msi -ms7032- board and when i boot up ,the system speaker goes off with 2 beeps followed by 8 more.It will not do nothing else.Help Thanks ,Ken I got this computer from a person that does not know...


Hello!

Depend from bios, what is beep, but when you have case like that,you can do this:
- clear cmos
- try another RAM
- try another grafik card

If you still have a problem, try turn on comp. only with motherboard,CPU, RAM, in some case you need and grafik card.
If you can hear one short beep, that is OK, and you must find problem in another parts.

My bios speaker will beep on startup but nothing more. What avenue should I approach to get past this part of startup?


First you need to know which BIOS you have and how many beeps it is producing... these beeps are the POST - Power On Self Test. They tell us if there are problems such as missing keyboard, video card not working, memory faults etc...

Then you need to go to the appropriate BIOS site and see what the number of beeps mean.

If it is a single beep - it means all is well...
As you are not getting anything more you should check to see if the Hard Drive (HD) light flashes - if so - the HD is probably operating ok and loading your system but there is either a problem with your monitor or video card... borrow another monitor and see if that helps...

But it all depends on the number of beeps you get and what kind - long and short beeps (like morse code).

If this helped you at all please vote!

I am getting 1 long beep and then 6 short ones


Hi canturob,
When a system reports a check sum error the bios is telling you the information stored from the last working boot does not match the current settings stored in the bios. Please power down your MSI system, unplug the power cord. Open the case & clear the bios. Location of JBAT1 on page 3 in manual.
Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1 page 10 in the manual. Remove the battery/cmos. Check it's voltage with a volt meter. It should test to 3volts DC. Anything less & the battery needs to be replaced.
While in the case re-check all data cables & power cables for good connection.
The MSI board uses the Award bios. Your current beep code of 1 long & six short is not a common beep code for the Award bios. See bios beep codes here: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

If the battery checks out ok, you may need to update the bios. Go to MSI: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=utility&maincat_no=1&prod_no=205
To update your MSI bios (Option only if bios clear fails to resolves the check sum issue).

Good luck canturob!
Mike
