If ram is ok, check processor and PCI devices, if these are all ok chances are your motherboard is dead

    you need to go back to basic, un plug everything, hard drives, dc drives, take the video card out, and anything else you have plugged into PCI, take 1 stick of ram out, so that all you have connected is motherboard, CPU and 1 stick of ram, make sure motherboard has power and turn the computer on, if you get a boot screen and it starts OK, plug the video card in, if it beeps after that, change video card, if it doesnt, plug the next thing in, it will give you an idea what component is causing the problem

Kindly check the placement of your memory card if it is place correctly. it should fixed firmly and tightly. If there is an error again, try to check your video card if there something damage or anything there. and if there is no other way, clean it again and try to dry them up with hair dryier but check the temperature for safety.

Gives 3 beeps 2 short and one long

Dear Steve Thompson,
It will be Beeeep Beep Beep and it indicates failure of the motherboard's graphics section. Switch off power to your PC, remove the RAM stick/s, clean their contacts (and the sockets in which they sit), with a brush and replace them carefully and start over and see if it still gives you the beeps. If YES then get motherboard repaired if possible.
Most of the problems are solved simply by cleaning the RAMs contacts and replacing them.

Hope it helps.

My m/b is Compaq BL30G and recently i had to reinstall winXP and it automatically installed audio driver (intel(r) 82801BA/BAM AC`97) but now it gives a continues "beep" sound. I even tried...

First of all open your chassis and then reconnect all the connection and remove hard drive. If you have two RAM in your PC then remove one RAM Now plug the power supply and ON the machine. If it is giving beep sound then press esc again and again untill the beep sound could be stopped. If it is continuous then remove the RAM and fix the other one then ON the machine And if it is giving beep sound the press esc again and again. Before fixing the RAM you have to clean the RAM with a soft cloth smoothly. I hope this can work for you ! and beep sound is stopped then attach your HDD then ON the PC

I have an Intel D845EPI/D845GVSR Motherboard with 512MB PC266 Hynix DDR1 RAM. When i switch on my PC, the system starts but, fails to display even the first screen that it is supposed to display...

Couple of items to try. First disconnect everything except the power and the CPU. Does it give you a beep code?

If not your either have a bad power supply, motherboard, or cpu. (Only if everything else is disconnected.)

Second, If you did get the beep code then put the memory in and see if the system starts to boot. (Try without the screen connected first. If it acts like is going to start turn it off, plug in the mouse, keyboard, and monitor and try again.) ** I have seen where an add on video card would keep the computer from starting so try with the on board video first.**

Third, start adding one extra piece at a time starting with the hard drive.

Let me know if this helps or not.

Video adaptor giving beep code on post Asus M/B M2NPV-VM 1 long then 2 short beeps also has a usb over current issue at post but has no usb pluged in. please help me decifer this. thanks in advance troy

This is a fix that worked for me, however I cannot tell you why or even feel that I had done anything which would constitue this as a fix. I leave my PC on 24-7 and came in one morning and it was locked up. Couldn't get a video screen, not even reset worked so I threw the power switch on the back of the power supply. Turned the switch back on and pushed the power up button. The MoBo started 1 long and 2 short beeps, repeating. I pushed the reset button and same thing. I again turned the power supply off, then on again and same thing with the beeps. So this time I turned the power supply off then also un-plugged the power cord to the power supply. I left it that way for maybe 10 minutes, while I did a few other things. I plugged the power cord back in, turned the power supply back on and hit the power up button. My PC booted problem. ???

Point is - this issue as reported by others may just be a hardware or bios fluke and needs a power reset or maybe even clearing the bios and restarting. Reseating the memory sticks, use just one memory stick and rotate the memory sticks to sort out the possible bad one and reseating the processor may also help.

Beeps always indicate error excluding a one single beep only which indicate process.Every manufacturer has its own beep setting. it comprises on short and long beeps. If previously it working good, then your idea may be correct. replace both the keyboard and mouse with existing. start computer if now it not giving beeps it meant that one of them is causing problem. connect one by one and start computer you will reach. AND if even after replacing keyboard and mouse it gave beeps then shut down your system. Open casing remove processor and memory chip out and connect them again it will work now INSHALLAH.

PC will not boot, monitor is blank, & PC makes (1) single beep every few seconds

If you have its motherboard manual, try to check its beep code. This will give you some clue on what is the fault.

Usually this could be dirty contact of RAM and video card. Try to clean its contact or you can try to reseat it first. If that not fix it clean it with clean soft eraser, its edge contact connector. But do this with your unit completely power off and unplugged from wall socket and UPS if you have.

Or some shorted component. Try to check it one by one to find the fault.

Post comment if this doesn't fix it.

Boot up ishue

From the sound of it, the PSU is going. The long cool down time would indicate to me that is a rather large component that is not exposed to very much airflow. To help isolate this, you might want to try running the system with the cover off. If the problem stays about the same, I'd say it's the PSU. Check all the fans while you're at it.

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.
