Question about Gigabyte GA-8VD667K Motherboard

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).

I cant reformat my ibm pentium 4 where can i find the advance bios i press all the functions but icant see the advance bios


Try the below steps and I hope it'll work for you.

1) Shut down the operating system and turn off your computer.
2) Press and hold down the F1 key, and then turn on the computer.
3) When an IBM or other logo is displayed or if you hear repeating beeps, release the F1 key. The IBM BIOS Setup Utility will start.
4) Select "Start Options" from the first menu.
5) From the Start Options menu, press <Enter> on the top bullet labeled "Startup Sequence" (it is above all the other options). This brings up a new "Startup Sequence" menu.
6) Change boot order as needed using arrow keys.

New memory, the board just beeps


First of all that board supports DDR400 (PC3200) so why did you get PC2100 chips?

Anyway, do a bare minimum test (only MB, CPU, RAM & PSU connected, nothing else). Remove all the RAM and test each one individually. Properly insert one into the first RAM slot and test by booting until the POST RAM test is finished. Shutdown and repeat the test with the same RAM module in slot 2 and keep repeating this for every slot. If successful in every slot, mark that module as working then try the other RAM modules using the same procedure.

  • As soon as you find one that doesn't fully pass the POST test, mark it as faulty.
  • If some pass in one slot but not another, then mark it as faulty.
  • If they all fail to pass on a specific slot, mark that slot as faulty and don't use it (you can use electrical tape to cover the slot for future reference).

Once you've finished the bare minimum test, try 2 RAM modules this time (use only the modules that you found to be working from the above tests). Mix and match the RAM modules & then try 3 together and even 4 (if you found all of them to be working fine).

Finally once you're satisfied you've found the modules that work properly, boot with memtest and test the RAM for any problems. If they all seem to work fine individually, boot them individually and test with memtest to determine which ones are actually faulty.

Hp invent repeating startup error


If it is showing a blue scree of death (BSOD) and shuts downbefore you can read the error message try this:
Turn the computer off, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 keyrepeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Scroll down below Safe Mode and youwill see an option to Disable Automatic Restart. Select it and rebootyour machine. Next time it boots up you will be able to read the errormessage. You'll probably need a system disc or repair disc to fix theblue screen error message.

Repeating beep in my hp G60 laptop i changed ram but it didnt stop and but it stops when laptop loads windows


hi
repeat beeps is definitely a RAM module issue. ry reseating (installing) one RAM at a time... assuming you have two module sticks. try inserting one only, boot up system and see if it works without beep issue. if it doesnt beep, remove that module and reseat the second one alone. boot up system. if that one works as well, then these two modules are NOT the same maker, part number.
if they both work independantly, then the RAM together are not compatible. both RAM modules must be identical (maker, part number, etc) to avoid issues

hope this works.. please send me 4 thumbs up

Error code PO4-513 on rz 390. overflow problem. I've seen the drum taken apart and cleaned out. any step by step instructions?


There is a much easier way to solve this problem. get a reem of paper and put it in the machine.
next turn the power off hold down the left and right Print Position arrows and power up the machine.
when it boots it will show u a number. at this point you can let go of the arrows.
press the yellow clear button 1 time and the machine should show all zeros on the display.
enter the code 80 and press start. the machine will make a master. after that it will show you 80 again.
press the c button at the bottem of the keypad and it should show 0000 again.enter 888 and press start and set the print speed to the slowest speed possible. (if it keeps jamming try pressing stop and repeating above steps but with code 81)
this is the ink drainage mode it will keep printing until you press the stop key.when the image starts getting light press the stop key and turn the machine off and then on again. and the code should be gone!

Dell power edge 2850 make 4 seconds beeps alarm without stopping and without show any error Msg on the screen.


I don't understand the beep code you describe, but the 2850 has many beep codes to help understand what is going on.

First ... Identify the beep. Does the beep start as soon as you power it on, or after several seconds? What is the pattern of the beep - is it a repeating set of beeps - 3 sets of beeps between 1 and 4 beeps ... like 1 beep-3 beeps-2 beeps, or 3 beeps, 3 beeps, 1 beep? Or is it a steady repeating beep - about once per second?

Second ... is the LCD panel on the server blue or orange? If orange, what is the error code(s) it is scrolling?

If it is a steady, once-per-second beep, it is probably your RAID controller. Does the system boot to Windows/OS ok? If so, use (or install) OpenManage Server Administrator (Managed Node from Dell's Support Site) to check the Hardware Logs and check the RAID array (under Storage/Virtual Disks). If it is not booting to the OS, then go into CTRL-M to see what the status of your array is.

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.
