Remove all peripherials, i.e .drives, video cards, even memory. Leave Power Supply connected. I hope you disable power while removing or installing components. Try to boot up motherboard with nothing except P/S connected. Assuming no beeps there, hook up one or both memory modules at which time there should be error beeps indicating no video card attached, etc. If you are then getting the bios beeps, there is a good possibility that the motherboard is good. If there are no beeps, then one has to consider the possibility of a bad motherboard or a damaged bios. Tell me more about motherboard manufacturer and model #.. All this is necessary to properly research your issues

How can I recognize mother board problem if system gives trouble. Could you inform about troubleshooting tricks on motherboard


If the motherboard can detect an error, by itself, it should be in the post Power On Self Test.
If the board did not beep, it could not find an error.
Perhaps you should look in the startup menu, if the post is switched off. Sometimes people switch it of to safe time during startup, but it only takes little time for the computer to do the test.
Perhaps you do have a manual for the board (if you did build the computer yourself, then you can read all about post.

perhaps you copy and paste this line in Google and add the model name and number of your board. See what you can find.

Laptop beeps 7 times


Try link: http://blog.parts-people.com/2014/06/27/dell-inspiron-m501r-m5010-beep-codes-diagnostic-indicators-2/ How to identify beep codes: When a laptop or computer first powers on, it goes through an initial set of diagnostic tests to make sure vital components are preforming correctly. These tests are called POST or Power On Self Test. When a test fails, the user is notified via POST codes, Light codes, or Beep codes. For diagnosing Beep codes you need to:
  • Power on the laptop or restart it if it is already on.
  • Listen to the number of consecutive beeps when the computer begins to boot. Restarting the laptop may be necessary and should not harm the laptop at this time.

  • 5 Beeps: Replace the CMOS battery.
  • 6 Beeps: Reseat or replace the video card or replace the motherboard / system board.
  • 7 Beeps: Reseat or replace the CPU or replace the motherboard.
  • 8 Beeps: Reseat the LCD cable or replace the LCD screen.

Hi I am working on a abit A 17 mother board it was taken apart by my nephew. I think I have every thing back togather, but when I turn it on it beeps and shows code 92,well I think thats what the l e d box...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=AI7&fMTYPE=Socket 478&pPRODINFO=Manual

The fault could be the cpu, wrong type of ram, a faulty ram module
or a fault in the mainboard.
Check all the settings in the manual and the bios aswell.

Here is a list of beep codes:
Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards

  1. No beep at all - this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board
  2. One beep - board is working fine
  3. One long beep then machine shuts down - faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU
  4. 1 short(Beep) System booting is normally
  5. 2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
  6. 1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
  7. 1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
  8. 1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
  9. 1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
  10. Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn't inserted correctly
  11. Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem
  12. A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages
  13. Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).

Error memory test.


Sounds like the DRAM failed the Self Test.
Power cycle the printer and if the error doesn't come back, go about your business.
If the error comes back, you may have to reseat the DRAM and try again. If error repeats
the DRAM may have to be replaced. Electronics Module may have to be replaced if DRAM
doesn't fix it.

Mother board connected to power supply peep suond coming no display(monitor) note from smps powercord 24 pin when remove four pin Beep sound not coming


The pattern of beeps is significant. Do you have the MB manual (or download one). Find the section about the POST (Power On Self Test), it will describe the different beep patterns which represent the various errors that can occur before the display comes on.

1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
Long(Beep) continuous DRAM hasn't inset correctly.
Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has problem.

AMI BIOS

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
