That beeping indicates a faulty connection somewhere. Count the number of times it beeps, or the pattern it beeps in and let me know, I can look up what the problem is once I know how many times it beeps.

I have changed the motherboard from Intel to Gigabyte(GA-G32M ES2L) since then the problem of my pc freezing while playing games started. My configuration is Processor:Pentium D...


1) Make sure that your Power Source is giving enough energy to the new Mother Board and make sure it's compatible.
2) Make sure that the new Mother Board is compatible with all of your current hardware, you can check this in the webpage from the Mother Board Company.
3) Check the voltage requirements for the Mother Board, check the BUS speed of the Mother Board and compatibility with the transfer speed of each of your current hardware.
4) It's never recommended yo change only a Mother Board since usually there's going to be problems with the rest of the hardware if it wasn't changed, if the problem persists, you'll have to buy new hardware that is compatible with your new Mother Board.
5) If you know how a BIOS works and how to configure one, you could also check the configuration in the BIOS, not sure it will work but it's worth a try if you know what you're doing.

This could be lots of things (bad HD, bad Mother board, bad RAM,etc...) first you need to narrow down the possible cause, open the computer, take out every thing that can be unplugged (I MEAN EVERYTHING) RAM, PCI cards, VIDEO cards, all storages HD, CD ROM, etc... just leave the CPU and power supply plugged in, than power up the computer and listen for BEEP's if you hear a series of BEEP's this means the CPU, power supply and mother board are GOOD, than (with power OFF each time) re-install the components you taken out (ONE at a time) to see which device causes the system crash... I've seen a modem card causing a system mall function once rediculous but true...

Good luck!

Amibios post code on a gigabyte board, 8 beeps 2 beeps 1 beep on GA-6rx board, no video output, have changed cpu, memory, video card, keyboard, hd etc, still no boot----help!


Hope this helps ... from the Ami BIOS website ....

8.2 POST BIOS Beep Codes
Number of Beeps
Description
1 Memory refresh timer error.
3 Base memory read/write test error
6 Keyboard controller BAT command failed
7 General exception error (processor exception interrupt error)
8 Display memory error (system video adapter)
8.2.1 Troubleshooting POST BIOS Beep Codes

Number of Beeps
Troubleshooting Action
1, 3 Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.

6, 7 Fatal error indicating a serious problem with the system. Consult your system manufacturer. Before declaring the motherboard beyond all hope, eliminate the possibility of interference by a malfunctioning add-in card. Remove all expansion cards except the video adapter.
• If beep codes are generated when all other expansion cards are absent, consult your system manufacturer’s technical support.
• If beep codes are not generated when all other expansion cards are absent, one of the add-in cards is causing the malfunction. Insert the cards back into the system one at a time until the problem happens again. This will reveal the malfunctioning card.

8 If the system video adapter is an add-in card, replace or reseat the video adapter. If the video adapter is an integrated part of the system board, the board may be faulty.
