Your memory module is defective, it's better to send it back to avail the warranty and replace it. The blue screen pops up to notify that there's a hardware failure running on the system that's why it's can't go on.

Thanks,

BIOS Beep Code - 3 Beeps
Indicates Ram Memory failure.

Cracked motherboard at ram memory slots, due to too much pressure being applied to motherboard, while in computer case?

Cracked motherboard at ram memory slots due to, user inadvertently had ram memory turned around backwards; and tried to install?
(Locating Notch was not lined up with Locating Lug, in ram memory slot)

4) We all get in a hurry sometimes, and make mistakes.
(Seen those commercials? Ha!)

Is there a 'stick' of ram memory in Slot 1? (DIMM 1)
That is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

My computer has one long beep 2 short beeps, I put in new RAM and still does the same.


One, if I may; clean the gold plated contact pins with a pencil eraser, use air to remove the eraser dust. THEN try again before buying new Ram Memory.

(You are Following Anti-Static Precautions, right?)

Unplug the computer from power. Press the Power On button in, and hold for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this procedure two more times.

Plug the computer back into power.

What this does is clear CMOS Error Codes, and resets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.
We are just trying to clear CMOS Error Codes.

WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
'Slap' BIOS around a little bit.
Hold the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds, or until computer turns off.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer back on.

I had to do this 3 times, one time, in order to get BIOS to recognize the new Ram Memory.

A) Ram Memory HAS to be in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)
That is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

Don't care about the other Ram Memory modules at the minute.
Just want to make sure a module is in Slot 1.

B) Are you SURE you have the correct Ram Memory?
There is a TOTAL amount for the motherboard, and EACH ram memory slot has a Maximum amount also.

Install in Slot 1 first. Try computer. If it works, then install ram memory in other ram memory slots.

No didn't work?
Then install in Slot 2.

You may find one of the ram memory slots is bad.

My motherboard gives 8 beeps and shows no video, I tested with several video cards and gives the same result. when the computer beeps (normal as it recognizes that although the bios), then emits...


Continious beep codes are caused by the memory (RAM). Try reseating your RAM just plug it out clean it then put it back in. Or try the other memory slots. Just transfer your memory to the other slot if you have an available slot on your motherboard. Or simply buy a new memory (RAM). Just make sure it is compatible to your motherboard. Beep codes means the computer is not reading the memory (RAM) properly. There is no post and no video in your computer because the RAM is not working properly.

When I start my computer its only says bip bip bip


Hi,

Three beeps indicates that there is a memory error. Take the system memory from the motherboard and clean the brass contacts on the memory and also clean slots that the memory clips into. Make sure you clean all of the dust away from them.

Put the memory back into the slots and try turning the computer on. If you have more than one memory module put them back one by one turning the computer on after each try.
If it still won't switch on and you get the beeps you will be looking at new memory for the computer.


Regards.

One long beep at boot up


Hogshead, a few suggestions here, but would like some more info too; does the beep start as soon as you hit the power button, or does the computer boot up even though it's still beeping?
Is the beep one long continuous tone, or does it pitch up and down like a siren?
This could be a couple of scenarios; one is the RAM, which I'm not too sure it is, the other is the CPU which is more likely.
Now, with the memory, this mobo uses dual channel memory, which means 'both' sticks have to be identical and both have to be working and have to be in their paired slots. Make sure you memory is good (have it tested or test it yourself), make sure the memory is seated (in) properly and the contacts are clean, and make sure the memory is in its pair slot which I can't remember if it's slot1 and slot2 or slot1 and slot3 (try it).
Now, more likely it's the CPU (processor), make sure the processor is seated properly and no pins are bent or tarnished (oxidised). If the CPU is damaged there is no way to test that other than putting it in another machine or putting another CPU in yours - be aware that what ever damaged your CPU is at risk of damaging another you put in there.
I've got to cut this short, we'll tackle more as you get back to me.
Let me know what happens.

Cant run


find an old graphics card (maybe the swapmeet) and try that. When installing the devices hold cards from both ends and push in evenly. The problem is most likely installation.
Count the beeps and which ones are long and short.
For example: two long beeps and three short ones.
Then in google lookup your bios beep codes.
For example: Award beep codes
There you will get a definite answer to what is ailing your machine.

Still a problem


the blue screen flash and restard is actually a critical system message, but windows is set to restsrt the system on a system failure, if you want to read the message, start the computer and tap the "F8" key until a menu appears, one of the options will be "disable automatic restart on system failure" select this option and the next time it happens it will stay there.. but from what you are describing it is pretty evident you have bad ram, the long beeps you are hearing is the mainboard signalling a critical error, usually caused by ram, get new ram and i think you will have no problems

Beeping


Hi, A couple of things to check/try: 1. Make sure your video card (if using one) and the memories are properly seated to their slots. Do an R & R (remove, reinstall). It might also be a good idea to clean the little gold edge connectors; 2. Reset your CMOS/BIOS by using the onboard jumper near the battery. Restore to original position after reset; 3. Double check your master/slave jumper on both the HD and CD; Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
