2 short beep continue after 30second


AMI BIOS:
1 beep - System boot successfull
*1beep - Refresh failure - (NO VIDEO) memory refresh failure (bad memory)
2 beeps - Parity error - bad memory

As it is a Memory problem, the first thing to do is gently remove the memory chips (there maybe 2) and firmly re-insert them, to make sure there is a good contact.
If it still Beeps on re-Booting, then you need to go to a supplier to get them tested, or re-placed.

Just finished with a new homebuilt system, I used an ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard and an AMD Phenom II X2 550 Dual Core AM# Socket Processor. My motherboard will not boot, screen is getting no signal...


I have published some guides and I have posted them below, go through them, they will help you a great deal.
I have had the same thing happen to me, try every-thing you can as described in the guides. Maybe there is some-thing new to try.
If all else fails then the best bet is to get warranty support for your computer mainboard. Your mainboard is the most probable cause of system failure.

The published guides I talked about;

How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?


My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Happy testing!

Loud beeping sound on start up , now will not start up , power ok


First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

MSI K8N Neo V2.0 beep code problem is continous beeps.


That's usually a bad ram stick. Shut down the pc & remove one stick at a time starting with the one furthest from the cpu & work your way down to the first one. When it boots without the constant "beep", you found the bad one! You can also check www.msi.com & look in the support area for a solution if mine is wrong.(I'm never wrong though,lol)

Asus mb wl300 amd 64 4000+ won't boot to bios.


To make sure it isn't anything else, pull all cards, and drive cables from the board so the only thing left connected is the power connectors to the motherboard, the speaker, and the power button. Pull all the ram cards.

Now power up the computer. If you hear a series of beeps then the computer recognizes there is no ram on the board. At this point I would take the power supply out and have it tested. If you do not hear a series of beeps I would still have the power supply tested as it could be the 12v is fine but the 5 and 3.3 volt side is bad.

If power supply tests good then I would replace both the motherboard and processor. You take a risk of burning a new processor if it's the motherboard causing the problems.

Abit kn8 ultra mb no post one beep


Trying your peripherals one at the time is the way to find your problem, Memory first - one beep is good, If your mb has onboard video use it first. if not check the settings in the BIOS may be a shared memory that is not set right. Make sure your memory is computable ck one stick at the time.

Gigabyte k8m800-8237 won't boot with 2nd gig ram installed.


Could have been dusty. Find a copy of Memtest and run it to check things out. Errors could mean a bad stick or bad slot.

NFORCE3-A CPU fan & LED come on, nothing else, no beep or video


If the RAM is incompatible with your board then yes it would not allow a boot. Make sure your front panel power wire is plugged into the proper spot on the motherboard and retry. If it's the RAM then you will still have the problem. If it was the wire loose or in wrong spot then it should work. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Powers on but no video.


Your motherboards RAM is not working properly. First you try getting it out and installing again. If that not work you can change with other one.

NFORCE3-A Won't post with 2 sticks of 512MB DDR RAM, only if 1 stick used :-(


U cannot use 2 identical DIMMs of RAM Memory, find two same and faster, couse 233 or 300 is too slow for nForce3 motherboard.
