I have 2 computers connected to a KVM switch. i shut down to connect a new monitor and when i rebooted i am receiving 1 long beep and 2 short beeps on my ASUS system, which should indicate a vid card error. the second system booted up perfectly and the monitor works fine. after removing and reinstalling card several times, i sent my vid card in for warranty replacement. i installed the new card when it arrived, and still have problem. i connected another power cable to the card with same results. i have removed and reseated the memory modules (just in case). could problem be CPU? could CPU need to be reseated? any help would be appreciated.

Connect the monitor to another computer if possible to eliminate the monitor as the faulty hardware Shut down the computer. Remove all cables and devices plugged into the computer. Make a note of the port into which your monitor is plugged Remove the left side panel when facing the front of the case. Unscrew screws or manipulate latches to remove the side panel. This process varies according to the type of case you have. Please consult your manual if you are unsure of how to remove the side panel. Attach the antistatic wrist bracelet's clip to a metal object, then ******** the bracelet. Locate your video card. (This will be the card that contains the port with which your monitor interfaces.) Remove the slot cover screw that secures the card into the slot. Remove any power cables that connect the video card to the power supply. Pull the card out of the slot. Examine the gold pins to check for any damage. Reseat the card if it physically appears to be undamaged. You should hear a click once the card is secure in the slot Screw in the slot cover screw. Attach the power cable from the power supply unit, if applicable. Leave the case open for now. Reconnect only the monitor, power cable and any devices required to boot the computer, then restart the computer. Shut down the computer again if you receive the "No-input Signal" error message again. Remove any cables and devices you plugged in to restart the machine. Remove the video card with a spare or replacement by following the instructions above. Connect necessary cables and devices to reboot the computer, then restart it. Shut down the computer and remove cables and devices if the display still won't work. Unplug the power supply's cables from all devices on the motherboard. Make a note of each plug-in so that you can correctly connect all devices with the new power supply. Remove the screws that mount the power supply. Fit the new power supply into the mounting area, and screw in all screws. Attach all required power cables to devices connected to the motherboard. Attach the cables and devices required to start the computer. Reboot.
If this is the first time to turn you on your computer check first the power supply of your computer if connected to their proper connector. Check your memory if clip properly in there memory slot. If you are using Video Card check it if it is properly connected to the connector. Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.
No Beep- No Power, Loose Card, or Short. One Short Beep- Normal Post,, Computer is OK. 2 Short Beep- POST error, review screen for error code Continues Beep- No power, Loose Card, or Short Repeating Short Beep- No Power Loose Card or Short One Long And Short Beep- Motherboard Issue One Long and Two Short Beep- Video (mono/CGA Display Circuitry) Issue. One long and three short beep- Video (EGA) Display Circuitry Three Long Beep- Keyboard/ Keyboard Card Error One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display -Video Display Circuitry

Hi granttoolmad Shut down computer and disconnect power plug . Extract new graphics . Reconnect and reboot computer , you should get video back . Install the driver with the cdrom you purchased with the card . Shut down . Install new card . and boot your machine . Wait for Windows to recognize the card . Shut down . Connect your monitor to new card . Reboot . Best regards , fanaudi .
I still did not find beep code that match your problem..
Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too. 1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem. 2. 1beep - board is working fine. 3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing. 4. 1short beep - system boots normally 5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error. 6. 1long 1short beep - dram error 7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected 8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error. 9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error 10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected 11. Short beep - power supply error 12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.
Go to PCSTATS.com. There is a list there. One beep:Everything is normal. 2 beeps:POST/CMOS error. One long, one short beep:Motherboard problem. One long, two short beeps:Video problem. One long, 3 short beeps:Video problem. 3 long beeps:Keyboard error. Repeated long beeps:Memory error. Continuous Hi-Lo beeps:CPU Overheating. Hope this helps. Good luck!
Have you check the video card, is it loose, not sitting right, beeps are either memory, video or a bad mobo.
here's a list of beep codes; the numbers represent the amount of beeps
The memory refresh circuitry has failed
Parity errors have been detected in the first 64 KB of memory
A failure has occurred within the first 64 KB or memory
System Timer failure: Timer 1 on the mainboard does not work
The CPU has generated an undetectable error
8042 Gate-A20 failure: BIOS cannot switch the CPU into protected
The CPU has generated an exception error
The video adapter is missing, or the memory on the adapter has generated a
The ROM checksum value does not match the value in BIOS
The shutdown register for CMOS interrupt channel 2 has failed POST; the
system board cannot retrieve CMOS contents during POST
Level-2 cache memory has failed the tests, and has been disabled
POST has failed, caused by a failure of one of the hardware tests
1 long, 2 short
Failure in video system: a checksum error was encountered in video BIOS ROM,
or a horizontal retrace failure has been encountered
1 long, 3 short
Failure in video system: the video DAC, the monitor detection procedure or
the video RAM has failed
POST procedures have passed
When a system reports a check sum error the bios is telling you the information stored from the last working boot does not match the current settings stored in the bios. Please power down your MSI system, unplug the power cord. Open the case & clear the bios. Location of JBAT1 on page 3 in manual. Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1 page 10 in the manual. Remove the battery/cmos. Check it's voltage with a volt meter. It should test to 3volts DC. Anything less & the battery needs to be replaced.
While in the case re-check all data cables & power cables for good connection.
The MSI board uses the Award bios. Your current beep code of 1 long & six short is not a common beep code for the Award bios. See bios beep codes here: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
actually your computer is working on the onboard video adapter.
1. connect first the monitor to the onboard video card.( do not remove the connected geforce video card.) 2. switch on the computer and press "F2" on new model computer, "Delete" on old model computer. so that you can enter to bios setup. 3. if bios setup is open; try to find the "AGP bridge configuration" (some other bios AGP B C is in chipset) by arrow up,down,side left and right) enter. 4. Find " primary graphics adapter" 5. In there, select : If Video card is "pci" connected ; select "pci" If Video card is "AGP" connected ; select "AGP" 6. press F10 to save and exit the setup. 7. after saving the configuration, disconnect power cord and transfer the monitor to the video card (Gforce). and then connect the ac power cord and then start. or switch on the computer.
Note: be sure to install the drivers of your GFORCE for optimum performance of the card.
