Reset your cmos see if this helps pull the jumper on the jp3 circuit on the motherboard and short the 2 and 3 pins with the power off and unplugged then put the jumper back to 1 and 2 ! the bios settings are wrong and this will reset the bios to defaults.

Continuous short beep when start... no boot up, already change the power supply and few rams for testing, but no change. should the motherborad or cpu fail?


processor failure does not produce beeping sounds, are you sure that your extra rams are working? try to change the video card if you have the removable one. then if you're using the built in video card, try removing the sound card and modem cards or lan cards.beeping sounds is only for ram errors and any other hardware but not limited to motherboards. by the way try to clean the slot for rams, video cards and others. this would help.

Having installed this motherboard in the case and connected up I get a series of fast beeps a few seconds after power-up. I have immediately powered down. What is causing this problem? There is nothing in...


In your case, it is a memory problem. It's either one of your RAM has problem if you have 2 slot RAM. Please ensure that you have the right RAM for your board. You can also clean the contacts of your RAM by using eraser.
Below are the most common beep code that being adopted to most BIOS for reporting.
  • short beep - Normal POST(system is OK)
  • Steady short beeps - power supply problem
  • long continuous beep - memory failure
  • Steady long beeps - power supply problem
  • 1 long, 2 short beeps - video card problem

Ram beep but no display bios jumper is clear stat bios jumper is normal then no start machine


Hello,
Please see this as reference

Continuous long beeps-RAM error
2 short beeps- BIOS error
1 long and 8 short beeps- Display Card error
1 long beep after few seconds 2 short beeps-FDC error
1 long beep after few seconds 1 short beeps-FDC is Ok
1 long beep and 2 short beeps-Display Card Error

Most probable cause is Ram memory, please try removing modules and reinserting, also try using alternately just one of them to determine which one is defective.

Hi i just get 3 beeps gap then 3 again contuulsy


The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes.
The computers way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

3 beeps, pause, 3 beeps, pause,......
The Gigabyte GA-6BX7 mobo, (MOtherBOard) has an Award BIOS.

3 continuous beeps indicate a Ram Memory failure.

1) Even if the ram memory modules seem to be seated, and locked in, remove, and reinstall.

2) Before you reinstall, it would behoove you to clean the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram memory modules, with a pencil eraser.

Doesn't take very much corrosion to make a bad contact. (In fact after you clean with the eraser it may look as though you've done nothing at all. You have) Gold makes an excellent conductor, but can corrode.

(You can click on the photo to enlarge. You can enlarge twice)

Use air to remove the eraser dust.
If you have a can of compressed air for computers available, use it.
If not air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Reinstall the Ram Memory module/s.

3) Still no?

Computer off, unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions.

If you have more than 1 Ram Memory module, remove all of them.
Lay the Ram Memory module that was in Slot 1 on a wooden surface.
(Ram memory slot closest to the Processor)

Use one of the other Ram Memory modules, or the other Ram Memory module, and insert it into Slot 1.
Plug the computer back into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

4) Still no?
Turn the computer off, (Hold the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds), unplug from power.
Remove the Ram Memory module, use the other one, or another one.
Repeat the steps above.

Post in a Comment as to your findings.

Long beep and continue acer motherboard N1996.


1. Beep codes indicates that there is some problem with your RAM memory sticks installed into your computer motherboard.
2. For detailed information about the beep codes, refer your motherboard user manual as there are different kind of beep notifications for different problems.
3. Try removing the RAM from your motherboard, clean of any dust, replace it back to the motherboard and try starting your system. Repeat the step for atleast 10 times, until your system starts up.
4. If still the problem, persists, try replacing your RAM and try again as this will help us to find out if the problem is with RAM or not.

I hope this is helpful to you.
Please rate the solution provided.
Thanks

Motherboard will not post


Turn it off. Remove the AC power-cord.
Disconnect all the devices (floppy, disk-drive, CD-drive).
Remove any add-on PCI cards (modem, network, TV, 2nd video).
Remove ALL the RAM.
Reconnect the power, and turn it on.
Try to POST -- if it is not "dead", it should "beep" a few times, due to having _NO_ RAM installed.
Turn it off.
Remove the AC power-cord.
Add ONE stick of RAM.
Connect the AC power-cord.
Turn it on.
Same "beeps"? Different? No beeps?

3 beeps


Please Try this :-

:- Perform each of the following tasks, in order, until the beeping stops. Before starting each task, unplug the power cord and remove the side panel. After completing a task, replace the side panel, connect the power cord, turn on the computer, and ()listen for a beep code. NOTE: If removing or disconnecting a hardware component prevents the beep code, that component is probably causing the problem. However, a failed motherboard might produce beep codes associated with a component other than the motherboard.
Clean cooling components that have become clogged with dust. If beeping continues, continue to the next step.
Remove a memory module.
If the computer stops beeping, the memory module might be bad, is the wrong type of memory for the motherboard, or was not fully seated or connected. Reinsert the memory into the socket to see if a connection was the problem; otherwise replace the module.
Remove each memory module, replacing the one that was previously removed. If beeping continues after checking all the memory modules, continue to the next step.
If the computer has a graphics adapter, remove it.
If the beep code changes or continues with the same beep pattern after removing the graphics adapter, the adapter might still be good. Reseat the graphics adapter into its socket and continue to the next step.
If the beep code goes away, the graphics adapter might be bad. Try reseating the graphics adapter, making sure it is fully locked into the connector on the motherboard. If problems continue, replace the adapter.
Remove a PCI card.
If the beep code goes away, the card might be bad. Try reseating the card into its connector on the motherboard. If problems continue, replace the card.
Remove each PCI card, replacing the one that was previously removed. After checking all cards, if beeping continues, continue to the next step.
Disconnect hard drives and CD or DVD drive cables (IDE and ATA) from the motherboard socket.
If the beep code goes away, the cable or socket is probably bad. Look for bent pins inside the IDE socket on the motherboard and straighten any bent pins. Try reseating the cables into the connectors. If problems continue, the drive itself might be bad and might need replacing.
Disconnect each drive cable, replacing the one that was previously disconnected, until all have been checked. After checking all connections, if beeping continues, continue to the next step.
At this point, the problem is probably the motherboard or processor. Make sure any jumpers on the motherboard have not fallen off their pins and into the case.
