Memory bank 2 is dead, no visual from graphics card

I flashed my bios (phoenix-award bios), after doing so my graphics card does not work, also my one of my memory banks dont work, I figured that my chipset drivers need to be updated. Can you guys recommend a driver, I have a biostar motherboard (p4m266a-8235,) my bios is 10\05\2006-p4n266-8233-6a6lw00hc-00-none.
If that isn't the problem, then please feel free to offer other solutions, HELP!!!!!
THANX !!!!!

1st -- assuming you did goto youre bios first and adjust where nessicary -- grafics set to AGP not PCI or Pallet snoop (off).
Memory banks running NON ECC ( most common ) ..
blaa blaa blaa -- read ur Bios Update notes -- memory compatability .. and or .. make sure it's seated firmly in its spot-or swap em see if it's the bank or the mem ... run memtest to confirm ..
all else fails or dont want to mess with settings ---
then simply

RE-FLASH with Older Bios ---- see if problem persists ! ..

Break BIOS Password
A user may also put a BIOS password preventing you to even enter the system but if you wish to access the system do not worry we you can still do it. However, I only recommend this trick for your own personal use.
What is BIOS?
Bios stands for Basic Input Output System and is a firmware code run by a PC when first powered on, which is a type of boot loader. The primary function of the BIOS is to identify and initialize system component hardware (such as the video display card, hard disk, and floppy).
How to Break a BIOS Password?
The following steps work absolutely fine for a Desktop and are the easiest of all.
Steps:
• Shut down the computer and take out all the plugs connected to electricity.
• Open up the CPU cabinet and locate the CMOS battery on the motherboard (it will be a silver circular battery just like a button cell).

9aa7876.jpg
Remove the battery and keep it out for some 2-3 minutes as this will flush out the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configurations.
• Now place the battery back and start the computer normally.
Steps for Laptop:
• Open up the BIOS at the time of booting.
• There are some backdoor passwords which the manufacturing company had set that will be accepted by the BIOS. You will just need to know the make of your BIOS. Try out the passwords from these lists.
List of Award BIOS backdoor passwords:
BIOSTAR, AWARD_SW, AWARD SW, AWARD PW, CONDO, LKWPETER, J262, 01322222
List of AMI BIOS backdoor passwords:
AMI, AAAMMMIII, BIOS, PASSWORD, A.M.I., CONDO
List of PHOENIX BIOS backdoor passwords:
phoenix, PHOENIX, CMOS, BIOS

My dv6-1247 cl when i turn on the power it beep 8 times and the screen does not come on help


Yu will need to determine which BIOS you have a see below
The computer beeps several times
If you hear several beeps from the PC speaker, it means that the computer failed its power-on self test (POST) because a problem was detected. The POST is a procedure that tests several components such as power, BIOS, CPU, memory, and video. Only if all those tests pass, the computer will then allow the operating system to load. But if one or more of these tests fail, beeps indicate a problem and the boot process is halted. These errors are a little more difficult to troubleshoot.
To diagnose the problem, listen to the beeps carefully and write down the sequence. Is it one long beep? Is it several short beeps? How many? Once you have the beep sequence documented, you need to find out what it means. What BIOS do you have? When you first turn on the PC, look at the top of the first screen to find out. Common BIOS types are Award, Phoenix, and AMI.
Award:
1-2-2 Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information Any other beeps Most likely a RAM problemYou can find more detailed information about Award error messages on Award's web site.
Phoenix:
1-2-2 Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information 1-2-2-3 BIOS ROM Checksum 1-3-1-1 Test DRAM Refresh 1-3-1-3 Test Keyboard Controller 1-3-4-1 RAM Failure 1-3-4-3 RAM Failure 2-1-2-3 Check ROM Copyright Notice 2-2-3-1 Test for unexpected interrupts 1-3-4-3 RAM FailureYou can find more detailed information about Phoenix error messages on Phoenix's web site.
AMI:
1 beep Refresh failure 2 beeps Parity error 3 beeps Base 64K memory failure 4 beeps Timer not operational 5 beeps Processor error 6 beeps 8042 - gate A20 failure 7 beeps Processor exception interrupt error 8 beeps Display memory read/write failure 9 beeps ROM checksum error 10 beeps CMOS shutdown register read/write error 11 beeps Cache memory badYou can find more detailed information about AMI error messages on AMI's web site.
If you get beep errors, you should try to think what happened right before they started. Did you add a new piece of hardware? If so, it might be faulty or not installed right. Remove it, then try again. If everything is fine without the hardware, try to reinstall and configure the hardware again. If that does not help, try exchanging it and see if that corrects the problem. If the error persists, narrow it down systematically. Remove everything but the CPU, memory, keyboard, and video card, then boot again. Does the error still occur? If not, then add one piece of hardware and try again. Repeat until one new component causes the error and you now know who the culprit is. If yes, then reseat your CPU, memory and video card and try again. If the error still happens, try replacing the CPU, video card and memory one by one to see if one of them is the troublemaker. If that does not help, you could have a bad motherboard. Check the motherboard carefully for any signs of damage. Also check for shorts, a metallic object could have found its way onto the motherboard, or the motherboard is not installed correctly and touches the case somewhere.

What is the beep code asus p5ntws


AMI (American Megatrends International) BIOS Beep Codes.
AMI BIOS uses beeps of the same length and pitch. The error is displayed as a number of beeps. For example, 4 beeps indicated a timer failure.
BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE
1 Beep (No video) Memory refresh failure Bad memory
2 Beeps Memory parity error Bad memory
3 Beeps Base 64K mem failure Bad memory
4 Beeps Timer not operational Bad motherboard
5 Beeps Processor error Bad processor
6 Beeps 8042 Gate A20 failure Bad CPU or Motherboard
7 Beeps Processor exception Bad processor
8 Beeps Video memory error Bad video card or memory
9 Beeps ROM checksum error Bad BIOS
10 Beeps CMOS checksum error Bad motherboard
11 Beeps Cache memory bad Bad CPU or motherboard



Award BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS uses beeps of varying duration. A long beep will typically last for 2 seconds while a short beep will last only 1 second. Award BIOS also uses beeps of different frequency to indicate critical errors. If an Award BIOS detects that the CPU is overheating it may play a high pitched repeating beep while the computer is running.
BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE
1 Long, 2 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter
Repeating (Endless loop) Memory error Bad memory or bad connection
1 Long, 3 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter or memory
High freq. beeps (while running) CPU is overheating CPU fan failure

boot the pc from cold, note the long identifier number - it contains a 2 character identifier for the board manufacturer. For more info go to the Award bios website, it has a better explanation of this. From there you will be able to either download new BIOS from there, or the website of the vendor/manufacturer.

Usually 1 long and 2 short is a problem with the video card and/or video memory. Assuming it is not onboard video, replacing the video card should fix the problem.

System wouldn't Boot


If your CPU or memory were an issue your Asus board would sound off with BIOS beeps. Asus uses the Award BIOS & you can see what these beeps mean at the link below. Regaurding your PC not able to boot is an issue with your PCIE/PEG video card-in relationship with BIOS setting & the SLI switch card mode that came with your board. When running 1PEG video card you must set this in the BIOS to Auto & you need your SLI switch card connected in its slot. By default, the EZ Selector card is set for a single graphic card. When you install dual PCIE graphic cards on A8N-SLI series motherboards, please make sure EZ Selector card set to the Dual Video Card side and properly inserted. Link to Award Bios beep codes: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
Will come in handy.
Reading the FAQ's at Asus site will help you better understand your A8N-SLI Deluxe. You'll need to fill in the, "Please Select the Product" first: http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
