Hello;

The "beeps" your motherboard is making is an error code, designed to alert you of an error in an essential system component, such as a memory failure, general motherboard failure, video card failure, etc. When a PC is started, no matter the brand, it goes through a POST (power on self test).

The types of beeps is a code, and is often system specific; changing from the manufacturer of the system BIOS, (BIOS; Basic Input Output System). If you know the bios mfg, you can get a POST error code chart for that specific manufacturer online... this will tell you what component is in question...

I do find it odd that you've changed a motherboard, without trying to change your keyboard! Seems like it would be easier to troubleshoot a keyboard issue, than swapping out a motherboard.

I don't know how fast your post code error is coming out, but if you don't know the mfg of your BIOS, it splashes it on the screen at bootup, or you can check your manufacturer's website.

When rebooted computer beeps 3 times and will not turn on


Is it a long beep or a short beep? Beep codes are used by the BIOS during the POST to report certain initial system errors.

If you're hearing beep codes after you turn your computer on, it typically means that the system has encountered some kind of problem before it was able to display any kind of error information on the monitor.

Follow the steps below to determine what system problem the beep code is representing.
Difficulty: AverageTime Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours depending on the cause of the beep code

Here's How:

  1. Power on the computer or restart it if it's already on.

  2. Listen very carefully to the beep codes that sound when the computer begins to boot.

    Restart your computer if you need to hear the beeping again. You're not likely to make whatever problem you have worse by restarting a few times.

  3. Write down, in whatever way makes sense to you, how the beeps sound.

    Important: Pay close attention to the number of beeps, if the beeps are long or short and if the beeping repeats or not. There is a big difference between a "beep-beep-beep" beep code and a "beep-beep" beep code.

    This is all important information that will help determine what issue the beep codes are representing.

  4. What steps you take to solve a particular beep code will differ depending on the BIOS manufacturer.

    Choose the correct beep code troubleshooting guide below based on your motherboard'sBIOS manufacturer:

Beep Error During POST



the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM and Cmos battery are securely seated


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly click start right click on my computer so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps you

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function
obvisously the beeps are windows searching for some hardware it could be RAM cd/dvd hard drive or motherboard all of these must have secure connections for the computer to work
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

I still did not find beep code that match your problem..

Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too.
1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem.
2. 1beep - board is working fine.
3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing.
4. 1short beep - system boots normally
5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error.
6. 1long 1short beep - dram error

10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected

The motherboard makes a 3 second beep over and over.


Nick,

That beep code usually signifies one of the devices connected to your motherboard is having an issue and the motherboard is not able to past the POST.

You will have to do some digging to determine the cause of the problem. First step, remove the RAM, and see if the error code changes.

How did the bracket brake? If it is broken your CPU or CPU Socket might have gone bad.

If you're thinking about upgrading, you might as well ditch the PC2700-3200 and upgrade to DDR2 or DDR3. PC2700 is DDR which is becoming a phased out product line. Just FYI.

Hope this helps.

As a reminder, if this post helps, please rate it. Thankyou.

Intel d101ggc making buzzer sound at equal intervals and then pc hangs.


OK this buzz is suppose to be a beep.
The device you described is called apezo electric speaker and is suppose to beep a post code to help define a problem.

If it's buzzing and not beeping there is either a fault with the piezo or the motherboard is not receiving the amount of power it needs to properly drive the speaker.

OK back to the post code. The patern is important it should be a series of long and short beeps. The fact that it is buzzing and not beeping may make it difficult to determine the difference between long and short beeeps.

Try your best to hear a pattern in it. Whether its constant beeps or 2 short 1 long or any other discernable variation please post back the number of beeps and if there is a long or short pattern.
please post back here

Thanks

SOLTEK SL-65K2-CT Motherboard


The beep pattern is a beep code and is how the motherboard communicates errors during the early booting process otherwise known as the POST (Power On Self-Test). List restart the computer and listen for the pattern of short and long beeps. Soltek does not list the beep codes in their manual, instead they refer to Phoenix who manufacturers the AwardBIOS on your motherboard. There are only two POST beep codes; a single long beep followed by two short beeps (Video error) and anything else. Apparently anything else you hear *probably* refers to RAM problems. Since you?ve already tested both one of the remaining options is to install a *POST* card (about $30 to $50), boot the PC and read the hexadecimal error code for a more detailed clue to what failed. If you ask around you might find someone who has one and may be willing to loan it to you. Another option is to write off the motherboard since the cost of the test equipment it about 1/3 the cost of a new board. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the posing.
