Hello! I just recently built my computer, and everything seems fine, except when I poser it up a get a constant high beep that doesn't stop until I turn the computer off. I've restarted the CMOS, unplugged everything and plugged everything back in, checked the CPU and RAM, and nothing works. Does anyone know how to fix this?

If this is the first time to turn you on your computer check first the power supply of your computer if connected to their proper connector. Check your memory if clip properly in there memory slot. If you are using Video Card check it if it is properly connected to the connector. Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.
No Beep- No Power, Loose Card, or Short. One Short Beep- Normal Post,, Computer is OK. 2 Short Beep- POST error, review screen for error code Continues Beep- No power, Loose Card, or Short Repeating Short Beep- No Power Loose Card or Short One Long And Short Beep- Motherboard Issue One Long and Two Short Beep- Video (mono/CGA Display Circuitry) Issue. One long and three short beep- Video (EGA) Display Circuitry Three Long Beep- Keyboard/ Keyboard Card Error One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display -Video Display Circuitry
Hope this help with your problem. Keep on touch in fixya
Hi, the thing to do here is to narrow down what could be causing the problem, initial suspects would be the RAM chips. If you have known working ones you can try in it, try these, if not, try without one, then swap them over, or even try without both.
Also, remove any components that aren't strictly necessary, i.e. hard drives & cables, cd-rom/dvd drives, extra PCI cards,network cards etc
Another suspect may be just a loose connection, try taking everything out, re-seating it. Again, pay particular attention to the RAM chips.
It could possibly even be a faulty processor, have you another you could try? Try taking it out and re-seating it.
Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply, CPU and power switch.
Turn on the computer. You should hear 3 beeps because you removed the memory.
If you don't hear any beeps, check the power supply. Check all the connections. Did you connect the 4 pin power? Did you skimp on it? A common mistake is to get a cheap, high-power supply. Just because the box says it's 1000 WATTs doesn't mean that will carry a steady load.
It's either a bad motherboard or processor. If you have another processor that is supported on that board and you know it works, try it. If it boots return your CPU for a good one.
Unfortunatly, if it doesn't boot with a known-good processor that just proves the board is bad; it doesn't prove your CPU is good. You may have more issues.
This is a known isue and ASUS is working on a sound driver for the chipset. Keep checking their site for driver updates. The board should all install with Windows 7 except for the sound drivers. Some people say they can install the vista driver and run it in vist or xp compatibility mode. The other thing you can do is pick up a cheap $20 Win 7 compliant sound card till the chipset driver issue is resolved.
Some history would be appreciated. Has this computer ever worked? Have you recently added new hardware or software? Has anything happened recently that may have caused this (lightning storm, etc.)?
If the computer was working fine and for no apparent reason now won't POST, first remove everything from the outside (keyboard, mouse, etc.) except monitor. If that works, one of the items you removed is causing a problem.
If not, unplug power, open case, remove all expansion cards except for video, then try again. If you have never worked inside a computer, some help from a knowledgeable friend would be advised. Be sure to touch the metal case before touching any circuit board inside the computer. Also disconnect the cabling from all of the drives and then retry boot.
Let me know if this helps. If not, we can do more providing you are comfortable working inside the computer at my direction.
