Question about Evga MB 115-K8-NF33-AX NF3-250 754 Motherboard

1 Answer

I've been building computers since 1992. Never saw this. My EVGA MB is in a BIOS loop. Boot .. beep .. EVGA Splash ... -Reboot automatically- Beep ... EVGA Spash ... -Reboot automatically. It's like a BIOS loop. Over & Over. Hit "Delete" to get in to BIOS, can hear it accept the keyboard command, doesn't care. Just loops.

    As I said, veteran at this. I remember keyboard DOS commands to set-up a reformat:

    C:\format C:\ -u

    .. so I'm ahead of you in thinkining in this direction and ordered an Asus motherboard compatible with my video card (kinda expensive, 7900 .. last of the AGP line), Creative X-Fi Titanium with front of computer fiber optic output and digital and RCA inputs (for my Gibson Flying V and Gibson Explorer) .. and an EMU USB MIDI 2x2 interface (for my synthesizers and drum module)

    .. AND with the new motherboard I also ordered a brand new power supply with 50 watts more power than I had before.

    My question:

    What's the percentage, if you had to assign one, that a new ASUS M/B and a new, more powerful power supply, will FIX this problem once installed?

    Just your best guess.

    I suppose it could be the SATA Maxtor hard drive but it never even looks at the hard drive, ever. It just beeps, shows the splash, beeps and boots again. No gettin' in to the BIOS to change anything. No control.

    Just Loopin'.

    Gawd I hope it isn't the hard drive. New MB, PS was my best guess to remedy it. Your thoughts .. and thank you for your time on this. Truly, I needed the help, came here because I heard you guys were the best.

    Sounds like failure of one of the onboard power supplies. Look for swelled (top domed) electrolytic capacitors on the mobo.

Turn the computer off.
Hold DOWN the "any" key.
Turn the computer on.
When you see "keyboard error. Press Fxx to enter BIOS SETUP", RELEASE the "any" key, and press the 'Fxx' key.
While in setup, change the boot-order to "floppy-first".
Then, everytime that you boot, your motherboard will "grind" the 3.5-inch disk, looking for a boot-sector.
If it DOES "grind", then BIOS-loading has completed, and there's something wrong with the boot-sector on either the CD-ROM or the disk-drive, i.e., Windows "crashes" during startup, and reboots itself.

Or, press F8 when you think that your computer is booting from the disk-drive, to enter the "Windows boot menu". Try "Boot In Safe Mode".

CONTINOUS BEEP WHEN COMPUTER IS TURNED ON


To do this properly I need to know which model your computer is - is it an eMachines MB.NBK09.003 Motherboard El1850 Desktop S775 G41T-Ad ? I need this to try to establish the BIOS seller and version. You might try finding the BIOS version by (continuously) tapping the F1, F2 or esc key (or possibly another)immediately after you turn on. The "splash screen" that appears aftrer you turn on may have some lettering which tells what key to enter the BIOS.
In the absence of this information here are two suggestions
EMachines that beeps constantly and won boot up
if it is the above it is serious and the computer will need serious (difficult) repair, or main board replacement or whole unit replacement (by which I mean new computer)

The other suggestion was about the RAM not being properly in place, but I doubt this as this usually gives a different beep code

Computer POST and beep codes
The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

AMI BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS Beep Codes
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes

4. 1short beep - system boots normally
5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error.

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops


Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm#05 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to memtest.org Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike

Emachines single beep


It may be necessary to enter the BIOS setup to disable the integrated video and/or turn on the PCI slot(s).
It varies but entering the BIOS setup uses one or more keys (sometimes Esc, sometimes F1) that are pressed right after power on. Check your user guide to see which key give you access.
Most systems aren't smart enough to do that on their own and you may have the system looking at two video processors at the same time and is unable to resolve the conflict.
