You probably have a hardware problem. Possibly a memory module "stick" not seated properly in its socket. Any other
card such as AGP(video) may cause this. The number of beeps is a code telling you there is a problem. This code varies with the
type of motherboard you have in you computer. If you're experienced in computer repair you might make sure all components inside are properly seated in their sockets. Otherwise you need a tech to check it out for you.

I have installed a new motherboard in an acer case. The power cable from the switch on the front of the case will not connect to the board. Can anyone help? Thank you


You should read the motherboard manual, for cabling:
1. Power SW
2. Reset SW
3. HDD led
4. Power led - and power led +
5. Speaker

Cabling scheme, also written on the motherboard.

If the Power SW not installed the switch on does not work.
If the Reset SW not installed the switch reset does not work
If the HDD led
not installed the hard drive light (red) is not lit
If the Power led (+/-) not installed the power light (yellow) is not lit
If the Speakers are not installed, when the computer is on the beep sound is not heard.


I hope this information helps.

Hp compaq dc 7100 , my problem is that as i start my pc than 4 beep with time interval 0.2 sec with led than after 0.5 sec it start again , remain continously


Are they Long Beeps? Does the RED led light on the front show up?
If there is no RED led light blinking, then the problem is your RAM.
If there IS a RED led Light showing up, then the problem is your Power Supply.

Amber light flashing on switching on the pc why?


HI,

A blinking amber light means that there is a problem with the power supply or the motherboard. I know that could be a number of things. Perhaps you could give some additional information.

1) Does the green light come on on the motherboard?
2) Do any/all of the fans work? Power supply or computer cooling.
3) Do you get any other lights? CD/DVD player?

You may have to get someone to see if your power supply outputs are all good.

I hope that gives you some starting points.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Make sure all boards are seated right and that the monitor is plugged into the computer and the wall. After that is done do you have any POST (power on self test) beeps after the BIOS loads

I'm having an aspire m5640. it does not boot. beep?


Yes if there are error on the system you should most likely hear a beep most of the time when there is no beep it is due to bad ram. Some times beep codes can't detect bad ram and your computer will not boot.
Open the computer up and see how many ram chips you have if you have more than one take the one in dimm slot 2 out. There should be small writing next to the slots 1,2,3,4 or Dim 1 dim 2 ect ect. you always want to keep slot 1 with ram so start by pulling out the ram out of slot 2 and turn your computer on. If your computer still dosn't post pull the ram out of slot 1 out and insert the ram that was in slot 2 into slot 1 if still no luck it's most likely your board but the best way to test this is to know that you have a good working stick of ram you could purchase one and if it dosnt work bring it back ... theres also the chance of your video card being bad but there is usualy a post code for it (beep code)
if you have no clue on what ram looks or how to open your computer just google for installing ram on a computer and you should find step by step guides

try removing all the cards from the expansion slots and remove the ram sticks. disconnect the drive cables from the board but dont touch the cpu or power connectors. Now hit the button. If nothing changes, probable board fault. If it now boots up and starts beeping ( which it will when no ram sticks installed) shut it down and reinstall each drive connector, ram stick and card one at a time booting between each item. when the faulty item is connected, the board will stop booting and you can replace that item. Many things can also cause this. Bad connections to ram sticks and video cards, damaged usb port connections, failed cpu's, failed psu's etc.. You may still have to take the machine to a professional repairer to have the problem diagnosed.

No beep


What indication do you have that the system is on?
Do you have any LEDs active on the front of the system box?

Also, your monitor should indicate whether you are receiving video sync signals from the system by changing LEDs or the color of one and possibly give you an on-screen notice that it is or isn't getting input.

If you disconnect the video cable from the back of the system box, most monitors will post a small notice on the screen that it is working but not getting any input.
