My pc mobo is intel 915gav. processor is P4 pinless running with 1 gb 400 bus ram..after a new installation of win xp i worked hours continously..but in in next morning when i turn on pc after running

There will be a thermally conductive paste [Heat sink compount], a white tooth paste like substance, must be applied between the heatsink and the CPU. It is a must. If you have replaced, or unlocked the heat sink metal, and haven't applied this thermally conductive paste, proper heat transfer from CPU and the metal heatsink will take place, and the CPU will overheat, and finally go out.
Music videos are large files, which apply a great load to CPU, as processing video is a great task for CPU. Temperature must be below 40 degree centegreade, at any instant.
Just unlock the heatsink lock, take out the CPU heat sink out, and apply some heatsink compound [silicon grease] and retry. If you hear a beep sound after 3 seconds or so, after swithch ON the system, you have won. OK.

Hi My compuer won't boot up it has a msi km2m motherboard I heard 1 beep I changed the power supply and made sure the ddr was seated and tight now i get no beeps but does not display anything on the...

Do this, first disconnect your memory into motherboard slot and then power on your PC. if you hear repeated beeping means no memory installed, the motherboard work fine. try to insert again your memory. if your memory are two pcs. insert only one memory and then power on again your PC. (only one by one insert memory for testing so you can trace if one of your memory was defective).
Try this,
Motherboard beeping troubleshooting guide.
(Note: before touching computer parts like motherboard, memory, video card and specially hardisk the very important parts of PC. discharge your static electric into floor ground or the case of your power supply. need also external PC speaker. if no onboard PC speaker ).
No beeps means short circuit, no power, bad processor, open parts or defective parts specially capacitor parts.
See this sample picture of capacitor leakage and defective.

One beep means everything is normal the motherboard work fine.
Two beeps means cmos bios error and defective.
One long beep, one short beep means motherboard need tracing defective parts specially capacitor.
One long beep,two short beeps means videocard problem need tracing of parts CPU and blower fan for working good, also capacitor parts for leakages.
Three long beeps means keyboard error some key press stock up or modules parts defective.
Repeated long beeps means memory not detected, loose of defective
Continuous Hi-Lo beeps means CPU overheat or loose blower fan with heatsink into motherboard chassis.
Try this solution for your motherboard troubleshooting solutions.

Hope this information can help you.

The RAM may be bad or not seating properly.

Open the CUP Box and reseat the RAM. If the Beep is still coming up replace the RAM.

Error beep codes on GA-6VXC7-4X

Hello kemas_franky, your Gigabyte GA-6VXC7-4X-P motherboard uses the AMI bios. Each bios has a listing for beep code errors. Click on the link provided for AMI's beep codes;
You need to be 100% sure of how many beeps you are hearing.
5 short beeps means, the system CPU has failed. If you still have your manual, go to page 30. There you'll see the bios name is AMI.
Below is Gigabyte's web site link for your GA-6VXC7-4X-P MB.
Not everyone has a spare CPU laying around so dissemble your CPU. Clean the heat-sink & CPU surfaces. To help you do this I am including a uTube video;
Try cleaning & reapplying thermal grease. (If your old grease is hardened or dried out. (Try this before replacing your CPU).
If you need a CPU & want to buy a new one you'll find a couple listed on this next link; (Prices between $10.00 & $13.00 US).
CPU Socket 370 Pentium III 100/133MHz.
If you find you heard 6 beeps & not five. Try replacing your keyboard. If that does not help than the motherboard controller is bad & you'll have to replace the board. The controller can not be repaired.

Beep sound when swith on

good day,

a beep from your cpu system means that there is an error. and since there is a "cpu overheat" error, it could mean that your cpu cooling system (or its fan) is not working.

the shutdown is a defense mechanism of your cpu in order for your cpu not to self distract.

have the cooling system replaced as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

i hope this will help

The PC doesn't work

I know this is about a year later but I just had the same problem too last night.

When you turn on the PC it plays this crazy tone music right? If so, listen to it then at the end you will hear a couple of beeps. In my case my system beep twice at the end. 2 beeps for me indicated Power supply was in protected mode. Luckly I had a spare P4 PS laying around which solved the problem.

If you have different beep code google up "HP Vectra VL420 Beep Code". Standard beep code doesn't apply to this mobo since the BIOS is customized.

My power supply was a standard P4 ATX... no special design from HP you should be able to get one at any computer store. Beware just don't the cheapest one it cuz they aren't build to last and aren't reliable. Trust me I've seen too many people buying cheap power supplies and having them kill their mobo's.
