    i tried running it without the video card and it didn't work also

  • theshadow_31 Mar 18, 2011

    i tried running each ram alone same problem

  • Liviu TURCU Mar 19, 2011

    If you running it without the video card is normal to you get error sound ( 1 long beep and 2 short beeps). Your motherboard has no video on board. I saw your card base has two PCI-Express slots. Try to insert the other one video card slot. If the problem is not solved try another video card.
    If I could be of further assistance, let me know.

Your mainboard may be one of the mainboards on the P67 Chipset in that the SATA Controller dies.

These mainboards have been recalled by Intel, you should contact the place of purchase for warranty support.
Try to turn on the PC with no SATA devices connected.

Claim warranty support ASAP!

    Did you remove the CPU?

    damnor01 Mar 18, 2011

    Is the Power connector connected to your graphics card?

  • damnor01
    damnor01 Mar 18, 2011

    Install only one RAM Module between powering up and try alternating slots.

    damnor01 Mar 18, 2011

    Are the Fans on the H70 CPU cooler turning on?

    Is your mainboard the Gigabyte P67 UD4 OR the Gigabyte P67 UD4 B3

    B3 is the bug free mainboard.
    Intel recalled all the mainboards from all manufactures without the B3 Sign in the model number.
    Bug is they just DIE due to the SATA controller! Not your fault, it needs to be sent back to place of prchase and they will replace it!

  • damnor01
    damnor01 Mar 18, 2011

    Tell me how it goes, standing by!!!

  • damnor01
    damnor01 Mar 18, 2011

    So if B3 does NOT appear in your mainboard model number, return it ASAP.

    You say you fixed your H70 Cooler. Do you mean repair or install?
    Was there some-thing wrong with the H70 Cooler?

3 log beeps on power on


Gigabyte doesn't list 3 long beeps as an error code, so I'm not sure if you're actually getting 3 short beeps or maybe 1 long and 2 short or... But, for reference, Gigabyte's error code list is as follows (depending on whether you have an AWARD BIOS or an AMI):

(AWARD BIOS)
1 short beep: System normal
2 short beep: CMOS Error
1 long beep and 1 short beep: Memory error
1 long beep and 2 short beep: Graphic card error
1 long beep and 3 short beep: AGP error
1 long beep and 9 short beep: Memory Error
Continuous long beep: Memory not correctly installed
Continuous short beep: Power supply unit failed

(AMI BIOS)
1 short beep: Memory Error
2 short beep: Memory parity check error.
3 short beep: Basic memory 64K address check error
4 short beep: Real Time Clock malfunction .
5 short beep: CPU error
6 short beep: Keyboard error
7 short beep: CPU interruption error
8 short beep: Graphic card error
9 short beep: Memory error
10 short beep: CMOS error
11 short beep: CPU cache memory malfunction

It might not be a lot of help, but it's somewhere to start... and at least this way you'll know what to be listening for.

Having installed this motherboard in the case and connected up I get a series of fast beeps a few seconds after power-up. I have immediately powered down. What is causing this problem? There is nothing in...


In your case, it is a memory problem. It's either one of your RAM has problem if you have 2 slot RAM. Please ensure that you have the right RAM for your board. You can also clean the contacts of your RAM by using eraser.
Below are the most common beep code that being adopted to most BIOS for reporting.
  • short beep - Normal POST(system is OK)
  • Steady short beeps - power supply problem
  • long continuous beep - memory failure
  • Steady long beeps - power supply problem
  • 1 long, 2 short beeps - video card problem

1 long beep 2 short beep continous beep


This POST beep code (power on self test) means you could have problems with :-
  • System board failure OR
  • Video adapter problem OR
  • LCD assembly failure
Try reseating the RAM module/s (the video uses shared RAM ie. part of the main RAM module/s).
Try reseating the video cable/connector (if the computer is a desktop then try reseating the video card and/or a different one).

Can not reinstall os on mt acer 246lc it bleeps 4 times and swithes off


Without knowing what motherboard is in the unit - it will be difficult to determine what the 4 beeps means.

Generally, 4 beeps means issues with :

- memory
- video card
- keyboard
- motherboard failure

Things to try -

- make sure there is no keys stuck down
- remove the battery and AC adapter, remove and re-install the memory sticks (reseating the memory)

If this does not work, your problem may be more serious. Let us know the results of the above suggestions.

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops


Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm#05 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to memtest.org Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike
