Do not have original message but i believe if you are the one i messaged earlier smoke etc from m/board you will need to get a new motherboard and ensure you connect all power cables correctly as the boards are finicky about power fittings

My board does not turn on and its beeping. Ive counted 7 beeps. i tried replacing the memory with known good ones but still the beeping persist.


MSI states that 7 beeps means "Virtual mode exception error "


Explanation: Virtual mode is one of the different modes that the processor can run in. The system is reporting an error when testing this mode.
Diagnosis: There is a problem related to the processor or motherboard. Note that this doesn't mean that the processor is necessarily dead, since the system won't boot at all with a dead processor.


Not knowing the price of either your processor or the board it is hard to say what to do for the best

Good luck

Beep Code Explained


Thanks to Transcend Technical Support for this great Brief of understanding beep codes that is found here
This is a long post and it may be truncated at the bottom. If so, use the link above to go to the Transcend web site where these are found




1.General POST (initial system boot) BEEP Codes
If you do not know the BIOS manufacturer, the following will be the general Beep codes:
• 1 Long and 1 Short Beep ?Bad Motherboard
• 1 Short Beep and nothing else happens ?Disk Drive/Video Related Problems
• 1 Long and 2 Short Beeps ?Bad Video Card
• 1 Continuous Beep or Non-stop short Beeps ?Bad Power Supply
• 3 Short Beeps - Bad Memory
2.American Megatrends Inc. (AMI) BEEP Codes
• 1 Beep - Memory refresh timer error.
Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.
• 2 Beeps - Parity Error
Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.
• 3 Beeps - Main memory read / write test error.
Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.
• 4 Beeps - Motherboard timer not operational
• 5 Beeps - Processor Errors
• 6 Beeps - Keyboard controller BAT test error.
• 7 Beeps - General exception error.
• 8 Beeps - Display memory error.
If the system video adapter is an add-in card, replace or reseat the video adapter. If the video adapter is an integrated part of the system board, the board may be faulty.
• 9 Beeps - ROM checksum error
• 10 Beeps - CMOS shutdown register read/write error
• 11 Beeps - Cache Memory Bad

Beeps 4-7, 9-11
Fatal error indicating a serious problem with the system. Consult your system manufacturer.
Before declaring the motherboard beyond all hope, eliminate the possibility of interference by a malfunctioning add-in card. Remove all expansion cards except the video adapter.
?If the beep codes are generated even when all other expansion cards are absent, the motherboard has a serious problem. Consult your system manufacturer.
?If the beep codes are not generated when all other expansion cards are absent, one of the add-in cards is causing the malfunction. Insert the cards back into the system one at a time until the problem happens again. This will reveal the malfunctioning add-in card.
3.Award Bios BEEP Codes
1 Long Beep: Memory problem
Explanation: There is a failure of some sort related to the system memory.
Diagnosis: The first bank of memory probably has a failure of some sort; this is usually just a physical problem such as an incorrectly inserted module, but may also mean a bad memory chip in a module. It is possible that there is a failure related to the motherboard or a system device as well.

• 1 Long, then 2 Short Beeps: Video error
Explanation: The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.
• 1 Long, then 3 Short Beeps: Video error
Explanation: The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.
• Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem
Explanation: The system is producing constant beeping in no specific pattern, or a fast "ringing" sound.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the system memory, or possibly the video card. The memory is more likely--the system complains long and loud if it can't find any usable memory, as there is no way to even start the boot process when this is the case. The motherboard itself could also be the problem.
• Other Beep Codes
Explanation: You have encountered an Award BIOS beep code I do not have documented.
Diagnosis: Award says that any beep patterns other than "one long followed by two short" are likely problems with the system memory. However, of late they have started adding other beep codes to their systems as well.
4.Phoenix BEEP Codes

I need to restore factory settings how do I ?Actually it is on pc period I need to reset it to factory settings, but that k8n-vm is as it states the motherboard I am using? Please:)


Easiest fix for this is to simply remove the CMOS battery, but there also should be a configurable jumper on the board, in the same area as the battery, that can be set so as to return the board to Factory settings.

Start up


That message will appear when there is no boot record found on any device the system board tries to boot from. This probably means that your hard drive is not being detected, does not have a bootable copy of Windows on it, or is defective.

Make sure the drive is correctly listed in the motherboard setup screens. If it is not, check for proper power and data cable connections at both the drive and main board. If the drive is being correctly identified, you may need to reinstall your operating system.

Ibm server x3400


You might have a problem with one of your componnents on the board. Please check LEDs on your Diagnostic Panel. It might point you to a defective componnet. It should also have LEDs beside componnents on the board. Try to replce defective componnet. Here is a list of defective componnets that would cause the above problem.
1. Power Supply
2. Defective cooling fan
3. Defective CPU
4.Heatsink is not in place
5. System board
6. Broken USB connector

Good luck!

PC not starting


Sure hate saying this but your dell 4400 board is the trouble.
Just finished reading a bunch of post. Double check Dell's web site too. No lights lit on the back of the PC means no power & the green led you see on the board is telling you that the board has power.
Seems your not the only person with the same problem as with other 4400 owners.
One user called dell & stated the problem he had, (just like your problem), to the letter. Dell admitted there is a problem with the 4400's. mainboard. Dell does not go out & replace every board. They, like every company wait till someone has this type of problem & contacts the Mfg. Your 4400 was made back in what 2003 - 2004. If Dell still supplies your board the best they'll do is sell you a refurbished board.
I think your better off buying a new board & fitting into your Dell case. You can try to find a board that will run your current componets.
This is dell's web site link for the dell 4400.

Good luck & thanks for coming to FixYa.

Sata controller was corrupted. cannot install any sata drives or sata drives was not found on the system.


henx, How do you know that the SATA controller is corrupt?

I see you state that your SATA drives are not beeing found by the system. The SATA controller is defective if your bios does not see a connected SATA drive connected to the SATA port & the SATA power connector is also correct & connected. There is not a fix for your issue. I checked every bios version for your P4S800D-X. No SATA fix through Asus. There is only one way to get your board fixed. You must call Asus tech at 812-282-2787 M-F Eastern time. Please have handy the set of numbers found on a white sticker on the serial port. Asus will need this number. Keep your system together as the tech will want you to do some checks before he will issue you a case number. Keep in mind Asus warrants boards for three years. Asus also can not repair your board's defective SATA controller. They will test it & replace board with another. After receiving a case number you'll have to call CA for a RMA No#. RMA dept, will send you a RMA to your email address along with instructions on how to send the board back to Asus.
