Gigabyte mother board ga-6bx7+

Dear Sirs,

the system ran smoothly for long time, i feel the speed of the computer is slow. the bootup screen shows me 466E Mhz instead of showing 933 Mhz the actual speed written in the processor is 933 Mhz /256 /133 /1.7v. I tried to make it faster so i opened the case and saw the wire of case speaker is pluged out, i pluged it its place and rebooted the system. there is syren sound continuesly beeped even windows startup. i removed as before. in the mother board there are two tables mentioned RATIO and another is CLK. below this table there is blue color 8 pin switch box present. the 4 & 5 numbers are set to ON positon i tried to over clocking the processor. so i move the 2 & 3 & 7 pin to ON and started the system that time the bootup screen shows 768 Mhz. and the windows work little fast. I was happy i work windows for 20 minutes the mouse and keyboard stopped working ie computer hangs up. i restarted the system there is same problem the windows started and the system hangs up i tried 3 times but no result. once again i replaced the pins to its original position and started the sytem now there is no display in the screen. i want to test the mother board and processor and ram. i pluged the speaker wirs and removed the ram and started the system. now there is no beeping sound. i removed the processor and started, nothing happend i removed VGA card hard disk Cd drive, found nothing. i clean the ram placed it to its original postion and many times i canged the pins to On and Off and checked, but not work.
when i turn on the computer the light of power led and hard disk drive led and the mother board led are lighting and the processor fan and the case fan also working. i checked the ram and VGA card in another computer, they are working well. this problem i already posted to you people, one of your advise me to remove the cmos battery for 15 minutes. i tried but no use. please help i love my computer very much. you know OLD IS GOLD. how can i know the mother board, the ram, the processor have problem.

You might have damaged the CPU/ motherboard during the process of overclocking.

Check your CPU on other compatible mobo.

Check your mobo documentation properly & set the jumpers rightly. If that doesn't help, you will have to replace the mobo.

Error beep codes on GA-6VXC7-4X

Hello kemas_franky, your Gigabyte GA-6VXC7-4X-P motherboard uses the AMI bios. Each bios has a listing for beep code errors. Click on the link provided for AMI's beep codes;
You need to be 100% sure of how many beeps you are hearing.
5 short beeps means, the system CPU has failed. If you still have your manual, go to page 30. There you'll see the bios name is AMI.
Below is Gigabyte's web site link for your GA-6VXC7-4X-P MB.
Not everyone has a spare CPU laying around so dissemble your CPU. Clean the heat-sink & CPU surfaces. To help you do this I am including a uTube video;
Try cleaning & reapplying thermal grease. (If your old grease is hardened or dried out. (Try this before replacing your CPU).
If you need a CPU & want to buy a new one you'll find a couple listed on this next link; (Prices between $10.00 & $13.00 US).
CPU Socket 370 Pentium III 100/133MHz.
If you find you heard 6 beeps & not five. Try replacing your keyboard. If that does not help than the motherboard controller is bad & you'll have to replace the board. The controller can not be repaired.

Thank you for using FixYa kemas_franky!

BIOS update (motherboard GA-6BX7+)

Please disable "BIOS Flash Protection" function in the BIOS or by Jumper. About the details, please refer to your motherboard manual.

refer to page 22 of THIS manual

If you "search" the word "flash" there are many references that may be of assistance if the jumper does not resolve issue for you

Audio divers

I agree with peepnklown, there does not appear to be any audio on this motherboard. it is not in the specs and the photos of the board do not show an audio connector block on either the 6bx7 or the 6bx7+

you can easily add sound to this board by using a PCI sound card, something like this

or maybe something more elaborate if you have expert sound requirements like DTS or Surround sound.
