Question about HP Pavilion a1110n (PX743AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Continuously beeping and rebooting

Checked memory in another machine and it works fine, Disconnected all cables from motherboard and it is only when I connect the black and yellow cable marked " PD " onto the system board that it starts to beep continuously after turning on. With the cable marked PD out of the motherboard the power remains on and the fan is running continuously. this model has a massive heatsink and seperate heatsink fan, this runs continuously also but more quieter than if the PD cable is in. Do you think this is the power distribution ? andm it still may be the powersupply or definately the moptherboard.

Many Thanks

Have you tried resetting the c mos?

Take out the memory sticks,reset c mos,put memory back in.

Also is the memory in the proper channel or slots on the motherboard?

X8dt3 died after reboot. 5 beep code


The beep code error message depends upon the BIOS manufacturer.
This beep code may not be correct for your BIOS.
5 Short Beeps Your motherboard is complaining. Try reseating the memory and rebooting. If that doesn't help, you should consider another motherboard. You could probably get away with just replacing the CPU, but that's not too cost-effective. Its just time to upgrade!

I have a gigabyte p4 pc, when i power it on the fan runs but it gives out a continuous beep. checked ram, processor on another motherboard, cleaned the motherboard, checked for loose cards and cables


The continous beep usually means a memory failure (RAM) or video memory if a plugin card is used.

Check to be sure the unit sees all of the memory, a weak power source( without AC adapter) could cause a partial failure of one memory card.

Another fault would be that the battery is very low on charge and won't accept any charge.

BAD Battery.

hope it helps

My computer beeps continuously every time i have it plugged in


Try this suggestion. Turn off your laptop, remove the cables and battery on the pc. Press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Then reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the pc. If it still continues to beep with no interruption, it is a problem on the motherboard. I suggest to call Acer and have your computer repaired immediately unless if you know how to reseat the motherboard by tearing down the laptop..

On-Board VGA doesn't work but the APG VGA card works on the same machine, i checked all the possibilities over BIOS its all correct it gives me 2 beeps continuously


Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check your SIMM's. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need to buy another motherboard.

Soyo k7v dragon plus motherboard continuous


2 beeps = memory problems. Since you get them even after the memory has been replaced then the problem is in the motherboard itself. Check the capacitors for bulging. If you can't find ones or you can't replace them then the motherboard is dead.

Asrock K7S41/K7S41GX problem


2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

3 beeps is usually either video card related, or memory. be sure your memory is UN buffered, and DDR400 or 333 DIMM not DRam.

Remove and re-seat your video card as well.

there should be a troubleshooting guide in your install manual stating the designation of 3 beeps.

  1. Clean cooling components that have become clogged with dust. If beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  2. Remove a memory module. If the PC stops beeping, the memory module may be bad, is the wrong type of memory for the motherboard, or was not fully seated/connected. Try reseating the memory into the socket to see if a connection was the problem, otherwise replace the module. Remove each memory module, replacing the one that was previously removed. Once all modules have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  3. If your computer has a graphics card, remove it. If the beep code changes or continues with the same beep pattern, the video card may still be good. reseat the video card into its socket and continue to the next step. If the beep code goes away, the video card may be bad. Try reseating the video card, making sure it is fully locked into the connector on the motherboard. If problems persist, replace the card.
  4. Remove a PCI card. If the beep code goes away, the card may be bad. Try reseating the card into its connector on the motherboard. If problems persist, replace the card. Remove each PCI card, replacing the one that was previously removed. Once all cards have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  5. Disconnect hard drives and CD/DVD drive cables (IDE/ATA) from the motherboard socket. If the beep code goes away, the cable or socket is probably bad. Look for bent pins inside the IDE socket on the motherboard and straighten any bent pins. Try reseating the cables into the connectors. If problems persist, the drive itself may be bad and may need to be replaced. Disconnect each drive cable, replacing the one that was previously disconnected, until all have been checked. Once all connections have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  6. At this point, the problem probably involves the motherboard or processor. Make sure any jumpers on the motherboard have not fallen off their pins and into the case. Make sure jumpers are set correctly.
