Question about EliteGroup ECS 945GCT-M/1333 Motherboard - v3.0, Intel 945GC, Socket 775, MicroATX, Audio, Video, PCI Express

New system - unsure if chirp sounds indicate system is live - also no video

Setting up new system with this board - not sure if 'beeps' are happening - only hear quiet chirp sounds - tried without memory/video card/disk - tried resetting CMOS - tried starting board outside case. No video

Does this board make only a 'chirp'? It seemed to run POST faster without memory plugged in so we think it's the right sound. But no video signal.

    No BIOS prompt is presented to the monitor when power is turned on. To test the M/B only power (Thermaltake 430W - 24 pin ATX and 4 pin), CPU (Intel Core 2 with fan) and RAM are installed. We will add the other system components after the base system works. Looks like something basic is wrong.

    Power and reset switches work as the system responds to both switches. The LCD monitor never receives a signal from the motherboard yet works fine on another system.

No picture, only 37pfl

The chirp or beep is a indication of a short on a line with fairly high voltage, over in most cases 100 volts DC.

Time to decide if you want to fix it (I would not as boards are rather expensive for this brand) by having a shop look at it OR retire/recycle it---average life on these sets (any brand) is about 4 years.

Making chirping sound. no picture

Problem most likely on middle board----High voltage deflection board--the chirp is a primitive indicator of shutdown or self defense in these sets.

It is beeping every 10 minutes or so. It's hard wired and doesn't seem to have a battery, so wonderng what the beeping indicates

most hardwired smoke detectors have a built in battery, and when they wear out the smoke detector will "chirp" about every 10 minutes. You are best off getting a new one . they last up to 8 years, but do get dirty or greasy.

No display when starting after installing in new machine. I bought TWO ECS MCP61M-M3 motherboards for my kids for Christmas and have the same problem with BOTH. This is in a completely new computer build....

First thing I would do is try using the monitor on another working computer to see if it works. If so, you have eliminated that as an issue.

Kind of hard to fathom that you got two fubar mo bo's but as they stay in the street, sh-- happens. However, The lack of a beep means that the bios is not posting. When you turn on a computer, the bios does a check of internal components and environment - if all is ok, it beeps and then has the hard drive install the operating system into the computer's memory. And if something is wrong, the bios will usually give out certain beeps that are coded such as when you have bad memory, no memory, etc. But you are getting zippo, and no video at all on your monitor - this is one of the few times you wish you had the blue screen of ***** because with that at least you know your hardware is ok but your software has an issue.
The conditions you have reported would seem to indicate that the bios chips on both units are corrupted and not working. U might also make sure that the memory chips are good. A bad chip, not a missing chip, will sometimes prevent the mo bo from booting up.

If you also remove all the memory and turn on the witch, if the bios is working it will beep like crazy. If nada, bios is dead.

If boards are new as you indicate I would return for exchange.

Youre going to need the deflection board as the high pitched whine if it sounds like a short chirp each time the power indicator lights for the 3 times is caused by a surge taking out numerous components on the deflection board. You can get your board rebuilt through which is fully guaranteed for 6 months. New replacement boards are not available anylonger for the ITC222

Soyo KT400L-2AA5 Dragon Lite Motherboard - Lost Bios?

Kinda sounds like a short, have you made sure youre motherboard is screwed in with ground case screws? Ive done this one by mistake and got these same errors, also a fried board after a while. You also need ram in it as well before it will give a display, also if you have a second video car dinstalled you may have the monitor in the wrong video card slot, common mistake. If your bios is hosed then you will need to by a new board if you dont wanna solder a new bios chip to the board

Beep code

The sequence of one long beep and two short beep when starting computer usually means problem in your display adapter. Make sure your VGA connector is connected properly to VGA out port.
If you are using VGA card (non on-board), you might want to make sure that the card is inserted properly to motherboard.
The beep indicates that system can not initialize display.

Add in Video Card

Yes 6 beeps indicates that there is no video card. Remove the card and plug into another PCI slot as some like to be the first PCI bus used. You will more than likely have to remove a sound card or some other interface do this plug in your new card into the slot and power on.

If there is still 6 beeps there are two possibilities
1 The Video PCI card id faulty
2 The Card is not compatible with your machine.

I do hope this helps you you also may check that you don't have to disable the card within the bios settings as sometimes even though the hand book tell you it should auto change sometime you will have to do this manually.

Thanks J
