Question about Gigabyte GA-8VD667K Motherboard

1 Answer

Repeating beep on startup.

When I boot my machine I'm getting a repeating beep that doesn't stop until the machine is turned off.

I've tried a different PSU. different RAM, removed all add-on cards, even unplugged all the IDE cables but I still get the beeping.

Any ideas?


Thanks

Hi iamborg,
You're Gigabyte GA-8VD667K board uses an Award bios. (Click on the link).
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

The beeps are telling you to remove you're memory & seseat it.
It would help if you cleaned the copper colored contacts with some house hold alchhol on a cotton swap. (clean both sides & let dry).

Good Luck!
That should do it.

    By the way there are two versions for the Gigabyte GA-8VD667K boards. Rev 1.x & 2.x

    The difference between the two is the speed of memory. (Only).

    Rev. 1.0 can use DDR 266/200.



    Rev 2.0 can use DDR 333/266/200



    Make sure you hear the (snap) - sound as the memory locks in place at both ends).

How do i get into setup?


Watch the screen when you press the power button for which key to press to get into System Setup or Bios. Press Del repeatedly once you hit the Power Button.

Sound like you've got a memory issue.
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Computers doesn't startup and has no beep


remove the RAM chip and start the computer without the ram chip inserted and see if you get beeps if yes the motherboard/bios is ok, even if you dont get to hear any beeps, try rubbing the edge of the ram which goes into the ram slot using a Eraser and then reinsert the same back in Ram slot and then see if you can at least get to bios and see if hard disk is detected as windows boots from hard disk if yes check if you can boot to windows if no may need to reinstall windows.please reply with results so that can help

Hi I have an HP dc7700 ultra-slim - this morning I turned on it but only getting 4 beeps and then a stop before repeating the same beeps...on the front panel there is two lights both trun red


One bad lead will cause your computer to continue in a cycle
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
hope this helps

No video from P4DMS-6GM, one long continuous repeating beep from speaker


For this motherboard, having a phoenix/award bios. first thing you should try is reset the bios. one long beep is due to video. If you are using onboard video, can you try using a pci video card to see if it boots up first? if you are using a video card already, try reseat or replace the video card.

Three beeps repeating at startup, Foxconn P43A


Foxconn uses the Award bios. 3 bios beeps / repeating means there's a memory issue.
http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm
(Remove, clean & reseat).
Do not clean the DIMM's with an eraser. Use house hold alcohol.
Dripped onto a cotton swab & wipe the contacts off.
Clean the DIMM slot & reseat.
On the outside, if the 3 beeps repeat run a memory testing program. Click this link below, scroll down & under the three screen snapshots download you're flaviored software. One allows you to create a bootable floppy disk & one allows you ro create a bootable CD. Main site: http://www.memtest.org/

Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)
Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)

The repeating single beep with a small pause (actually 3 Beeps a Pause) clearly indicates problems with RAM .Replace it ,your problem will be solved . As for connecting the 12 volt 4 pin connector all mobos are designed to sense the presence of this 12 volts and ONLY THEN TURN ON.

Long Beeps every other second


Ok, I did some research into your board. Your motherboard is running an award bios. All motherboards use beep codes to tell you what is wrong. You've got a hardware problem somewhere for sure, but where is the question. If you're having 1 long beep, with the same timing and frequency over and over then according to the codes you most likely have a memory problem. Try resetting the motherboard by resetting the cmos ( you can also do this by removing the power from the computer and taking the little clock battery off of the motherboard for about a minute). Also, make sure your ram is tightly seated. In fact, take the ram out and then place it back in. Try running the computer with only one of the chips of ram installed (if you have more than 1 chip that is). Maybe one of the chips went bad. Finally, here is a list of the award beep codes. If you are getting beeps that match one of these examples better than we can go from there. 1 Long, 2 Short - Video adapter failure Repeating (Endless loop)- Memory error 1 Long, 3 Short - Video adapter failure High freq. beeps (while running) - CPU is overheating Repeating High, Low beeps- CPU failure
