-Check memory first, (no memory no display, but it should beep)
-Check CPU, means no brain (cannot do much)
-Finally try another power supply (must supply correct voltage on all rails) of course the mainboard must be good too.
Hope it helps..

My cpu will not turn on at all after being disconnected in order to set it up in another part of the room.


Try the AC power cord connection where it plugs in to the computer power supply on the back of the tower. The cord often can be loose in the socket, looking like it's connected but not making contact. Also be sure the new outlet where you have the computer plugged in has power. It may have a switch controlling it. It's unlikely there's anything internally wrong with the computer since all you did was move it, so you'll probably find it's just not getting power.

Asus cuv4x-c problems, all capacitors is ok, im getting series of beeps (continuous beeps)


A lot more than just capacitors could be the problem. First things first, if you have a tester, test the power supply. Next is most likely memory problem. Remove the memory piece/pieces clean the contact and memory slots (blow-out with air). Reseat the memory in proper slots. While you are in there, also check that all components are seated. Re-seating the memory should correct the problem. If not, use some different memory sticks to check again. Note: Motherboards are cheap, If your power supply is OK and you are sure the memory sticks are OK, just replace the motherboard.

Motherboard beeps, but no display on my monitor. I press the reset button and then the system will work normally


Hello there james_wheele.
.
Here's your geek-steer ...

Those beeps you hear ... they are a very, very good thing. It's a pre-coded little diagnostic result report your motherboard (MB) is trying to tell you about in the only language she knows.

Presuming you have Award BIOS, the following are the "official" beep codes:
  • 1 long, 2 short = Video adapter error: Either video adapter is bad or is not seated properly. Also, check to ensure the monitor cable is connected properly.
    Repeating (endless loop) = Memory error: Check for improperly seated or missing memory.
  • 1 long, 3 short = No video card or bad video RAM: Reseat or replace the video card.
  • High frequency beeeps while running = Overheated CPU: Check the CPU fan for proper operation. Check the case for proper air flow.
  • Repeating High/Low = CPU: Either the CPU is not seated properly or the CPU is damaged. May also be due to excess heat. Check the CPU fan or BIOS settings for proper fan speed.
Do your beep sequences match any one of these? If so, follow-up with the appropriate suggested corrective action.

If that's a "WTF ???" coming out of your thought bubble, post back and I'll see about giving you some links to pictures of your motherboard, coupled with some instruction, tips, advice on how to perform your particular actions properly.

Good luck, and please post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • if you have any further questions,
  • to provide clarification or feedback.

Long beep when power on PC


Usually any kind of clear distinctive beep while booting up is an error code. If you get a long beep with no display then it could be the memory or CPU. Check to make sure all of your cards are pushed in all the way. Just take your hand and push on your memory, cpu, and other cards gently but firmly to make sure they are seated. Also make sure that everything is connected. You may have missed connecting power to something.

At POST I get 2 short beeps


it depends on the bios chip maker Here's some other beep codes:

for Award and Phoenix BIOS:

1 short beep: Normal
2 short beeps: CMOS error
1 long and 1 short beep: DRAM error
1 long and 2 short beeps: Video card error
1 long and 3 short beeps: Keyboard error
1 long and 9 short beeps: ROM error
Long continuous beeps: DRAM not installed correctly
Short continuous beeps: Bad power supply


AMI BIOS:

1 short beep: DRAM flash error
2 short beeps: DRAM ECC check error
3 short beeps: DRAM detect error
5 short beeps: CPU error
6 short beeps: Keyboard error
8 short beeps: Video card error
9 short beeps: ROM error
1 long and 3 short beeps: Bad DRAM
1 long and 8 short beeps: Video card error


Invoking Beep Codes

.

If the computer is actually functioning and the computer beeps continuously, then there is a problem with a voltage on the power supply being incorrect or the CPU overheating. IMMEDIATELY go into the BIOS and check CPU temperature, fan speed and voltages

**********************************************
BIOS Beep Codes

Annoying isn't it? You have built your computer you switch it on and then nothing happens except a few beeps from the PC speaker. Frustration sets in as you try to figure out what is wrong with it. If you didn't already know the computer has already told you the problem. It can't speak of course but it can direct you to the problem. Its all in the beeps. The BIOS can recognise when the problem occurs and sends a signal out to send a certain amount of beeps through the speaker. These beeps then tell you the location of the problem.

Unfortunately not all the BIOS' use the same codes as each other. Two of the main BIOS manufactures AMI and Award (now Phoenix) have different codes for there errors.

AMI BIOS

# of Beeps Error Description
1 Refresh Failure The memory refresh Circuitry is faulty
2 Parity Error Parity error in the Base (1st 64K) of memory
3 64K Base Memory Error Memory error in the base memory (1st 64K)
4 Timer Not Operational Timer 1 is not functioning (also caused by error in base memory)
5 Processor Error CPU error
6 8042 Gate A20 Failure Unable to switch to protected mode
7 Processor Exception Interrupt error The CPU on the CPU card generated an interrupt error
8 Display Memory Read/Write Error Video adapter is missing, incorrectly seated or has faulty memory
9 ROM checksum error The ROM checksum does not match that of the BIOS
10 Coms Shutdown Register Read/Write The shutdown register for coms RAM has failed
11 Cache Memory Bad The cache memory test has failed. Cache memory will be disabled. *** DO NOT enable it ***


With the first 3 beep codes, its well worth re-seating the memory just to make sure that it's in correctly. 8 Beeps is probably the most common in my experience. Can be caused by a badly seated Graphics card. If you have re-seated it then check with another Graphics card in the board.

Always check for loose components before sending the board back as this is the main cause of errors on the POST.



Award BIOS

Award states that they now only use one beep from there BIOS. This beep is one long beep and then two short beeps. This indicates a graphics card problem. Any other beeps should be treated as a RAM problem first and then the board sent in to be inspected.

The reason that the Award BIOS only uses the beep code for display problems is that it tries to display the error on-screen if at all possible. If the BIOS cannot initiate the display adapter then this causes the BIOS to make the beep code for a display error, which must be corrected before any other errors can be determined. Memory Test fails and hard disk failures etc will all be displayed on screen

IBM BIOS

The IBM BIOS works with Short and Long beeps as well as the Award BIOS. However the IBM one does still have codes to work from.

Beep Code Error
1 Short Beep Normal POST, System booted OK
2 Short Beeps POST Error - Code on Display
No Beep Power supply or Motherboard error
Continuous Beep Power supply or Motherboard error
Repeating short beeps Power supply or Motherboard error
1 short, 1 long beep System board error
1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter error (MDA/CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps Display adapter error (EGA/VGA)
3 long beeps 3270 keyboard card
Phoenix BIOS
The Phoenix BIOS works on a slightly more complicated manor than the others. It does display an error code for you and produce a series of beeps. This BIOS produces its beeps according to the hexadecimal code the error produces. The Phoenix BIOS has many different codes for its possible errors and so many different beep codes. Rather than list the entire section here, I have provided a link to the official PDF file containing the codes and how they are derived.

Phoenix BIOS Post Codes

System board errors should be looked at by a specialist, Again always try to re-seat components to ensure they are in correctly. If necessary take all components out except for the RAM CPU and graphics card, then try the system. Re-seating components is the number one fix for getting past the POST screen. One badly seated components can cause the entire system not to function. so pick out your bios and follow the steps above to diagnose .hope this helps

No beep,No Display on my monitor,only CPU heatsink fan is moving


have you thought about changing the battery on the motherboard, also checking that the fan on the cpu is seated properly with enough heatsink paste as both these issues will stop the pc from booting

BCM BC875PLG Socket 4 ATX P4... Problem:


hmmm my sussgestion in yoyr case is that, don't attach all things at once. do the following step bye step.

Step 1). Attach SMPS, Front Panel Connectio, and an in built speaker and CPU (don't add RAM, HDD, FDD, VGA Card or any thing els)

Power on and watch:

Case 1: if you can hear a long beep, then you CPU and board is OK

Case 2: No beep means CPU or board is faulty. Try to Reconnect CPU again and do step 1.

Step 2) Now power off and add RAM only.

Power on and watch.

Case 1: if you can hear the ok beep it means till now your RAM is Ok
otherwise clean your RAM connection and add it again.

Further you can add your VGA, HDD CD-ROM/DVD, PCI Devices etc. and easily short-out your problem.

Thanks

Motherboard problem


if you have tried resetting the bios by putting the jumper across pins 2-3, then back to pins 1-2 and it still wont boot into the bios and you know the memory is ok, then the bios chip on the motherboard is damaged and may not be easy to replace as the board is quite old.
