    A single beep means your motherboard's bios has loaded and the preboot self check reports all is ok. Why at this point your screen freezes may be related to your hard drive as it freezes after the Bios self check is okay. This is the same point the Windows environment gets the data passed off from the Bios.

    Normally, you don't want to have any add ons attached to your pc until the OS is finished loading and is installed successfully.

    What pin locater are you referring to?

Try to reset the BIOS to default either take the M/board battery out for at least 1 hour reinsert battery and try or
On M/board will be writing with reset bios or similar usually a small 2 pin connector with a jumper on 1 pin connect jumper over both pins remove jumper refit over 1 pin and reboot
If 3 pin setup remove jumper and fit over middle pin and the one it was not on replace back to how it was and boot computer

How do i get into setup?

Watch the screen when you press the power button for which key to press to get into System Setup or Bios. Press Del repeatedly once you hit the Power Button.

Sound like you've got a memory issue.
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I have motherboard D 101GGC ofter boot screen will get 2 beeps

Without knowing which bios you have, it is not possible to give you a definitive solution. That said, you probably have to use different RAM.
I've put together hundreds (at least) custom built PCs and I've noticed the RAM type can be a bit elusive. The requirements can tell you to put "PC3200" in, for example, but there are other factors involved when it comes to choosing the correct system memory. Your particular issue points to the parity chip. Most MOBOs accept RAM with NO parity. Replacing the RAM with something different is your best bet. is a fantastic site for choosing your RAM due to their tools for choosing the correct sticks. Additionally, they have phone support which is phenomenal when it comes to choosing the correct RAM for your MOBO.
I hope this helps. Additionally, I've provided a link below for different beep codes if you are wanting a second opinion.
Thanks for using!

When i swithch on the monitor is blank and there are two short beeps. Also the numbers 1 2 and 3 are lit in the tower front

The two short beeps are probably a POST (Power On Self Test) code. These have been in use since the first PC was manufactured by IBM, and other manufacturers decided to let IBM's POST codes be the standard for PC clones for several years. AMI, a BIOS chip manufacturer later came up with their own. Since then other manufacturers have strayed form the IBM fold, also.

For more info, go to <a href=""></a>.

Your 2 beeps in IBM POST code mean: POST error, see code on screen (code 123 means "system board error"). Not a lot of help!

Your 2 beeps in AMI BIOS POST code means a Base Memory Parity Error (bad memory chip in lower 64k of RAM).

The 123 display on the tower may NOT be the IBM POST error code, but something else. As reets-tech implies, you probably will only be able to get a definitive interpretation from your computer's manufacturer or one of their authorized repair facilities (if any). Good luck!
