SOURCE: Computer wont boot up

when you fitted the hard drive, you must go into the bios and make sure your new hard drive is listed as it will be looking for your old one, there should be an option to press an 'F' key to detect hard drives, and also ensure the date and time is set correctly. Assuming that the new drive is the master and is set as master, unless it's a seondary drive and should be set as slave if on the same ide cable. If the hard drive is from another pc with an operating system already on it then the pc wont boot as the information already on the drive refers to another pc motherboards drivers and all the component drivers; so you will need to repair your windows operating system by way of your XP cd.

BEEP on start. BOOT OS but no VIDEO


how many beeps. Look up beep codes. is it a award bios there are stickers or names on the chips look them up that should help maybe even drivers from biostar might help you determine the beep codes .

Could be something as simple as a memory module just not sitting proper . take out memory and reset the memory. just to be sure. or try a similar memory module. back then they never sat proper you have to wiggle them a little

i have known computers not to boot with a bad memory module.

the 6150 had alot of bad capacitors check to see if the little bottle caps are bulging out or leaking that might just be your issue. nvidia stoped making motherboards. its a shame cause I think beyond the issues with capacitors (that effected everyone in the market asus gyabyte you name it manufacture of motherboards or electronics of any kind from early 2000 on till after 2004 some time)

Computer POST and beep codes
The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

Award BIOS Beep Codes
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes

Asus P5NT motherboard - will not boot to bios


The voltage output onto the three main rails as you put it is 12 volts and 5 volts. As you say that there is no beeping, you must be getting power lights and fan spin up. This would indicate a failed graphics card. I may am only going on the information you have supplied. Although if there is no lights or fans it may be a failed psu. You also don't identify your PSU. if you have the one that came with the tower, it isn't surprising.

Computer continuously reboots. I can get into the BIOS and it will stay running just fine, but it will not boot to any device. It just beeps once and restarts.


sounds like the MBR is infected with something virusy, try backing up the data you need and then repartition the main Hard drive you boot from, then format and then reload your OS and you should be fine after that.

When i boot up the computer it starts beeping immediately, otherwise boots just fine


The beeps are part of the boot sequence, more normally called the post report. The beeps length and number usually indicate a problem.

Check with the abit website, you need the post sequence for your motherboard.

Usually, with a post report, you get a single beep which means everything is tickety boo.

G31TM-P21 normally boots with series of beeps. Now will not boot properly from CD start sequence (for reinstalling op system) and gives a short beep about every 5 seconds. No information found on MSI...


Hi,
According to the sequence of beeps your getting from your computer, ther is a possibility that there is a problem with the memory module or RAM on your computer. Try reseating the memory then try to boot up again.

I've been building computers since 1992. Never saw this. My EVGA MB is in a BIOS loop. Boot .. beep .. EVGA Splash ... -Reboot automatically- Beep ... EVGA Spash ... -Reboot automatically. It's like a...


Turn the computer off.
Hold DOWN the "any" key.
Turn the computer on.
When you see "keyboard error. Press Fxx to enter BIOS SETUP", RELEASE the "any" key, and press the 'Fxx' key.
While in setup, change the boot-order to "floppy-first".
Then, everytime that you boot, your motherboard will "grind" the 3.5-inch disk, looking for a boot-sector.
If it DOES "grind", then BIOS-loading has completed, and there's something wrong with the boot-sector on either the CD-ROM or the disk-drive, i.e., Windows "crashes" during startup, and reboots itself.

Or, press F8 when you think that your computer is booting from the disk-drive, to enter the "Windows boot menu". Try "Boot In Safe Mode".

With my mercury mother when I switch on my pc it


Hi,
Beeps are usually a warning that the computer is having hardware issues, this is usually down to the memory being bad.
Try taking out the system memory and clean the contacts and the slots that the memory snaps into with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory and try to boot the machine up.
If it still won't boot count the number of beeps and if they are long or short and post back here.


Regards.

Computer turns off then on after first boot


2 beeps is memory issues.  Either your RAM is bad or the Video card is bad.  If you are getting the BSOD, blue screen of death, then I would take out all your RAM and start it up with a single stick, so you can find out what stick is bad.  If you only have 1 stick, replace it.  I say to do the memory first, because it is the cheaper fix.

No boot up, display, beep, or HD action


I am having the same issue. Clearing/reset the bios will get the board to boot up, but when turned off and started again the board will not boot. you will have to clear the bios again. The board seems to be rebooting itself continuously before it evens get to the POST.
