Twice beep sound is coming. Booting is not happening for my p4p800 mx/s board


Hello !
If you check out ASUS support, you will find this troubleshooter for the motherboard not booting :
1. Please clear CMOS.
2. Please take out your memory cards and video card, try to clean their golden connectors with a rubber, then reseat them back.
3. Please take the CPU cooler out, add some thermal paste to the CPU surface, then reseat the cooler back and keep the cooler tightly installed.
4. Please keep the necessary components(CPU, one memory) onboard for a test.
Finally, we would recommend you to replace a BIOS battery to have a test.
Also, by looking over beep codes I have found for AMI BIOS these problems for the 2 short beeps :
1. Memory parity error (Description : A memory parity error has occured in the first 64 KB of RAM. The RAM IC is probably bad).
2. POST fail (Description : One of the hardware tests have failed).
If you have done those and it still doesn't boot, let me know I'll try to find other solutions.
All the best !

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

• 1-1-3
Explanation: Your computer can't read the configuration information stored in the CMOS.
Diagnosis: Replace the motherboard.

• 1-1-4
Explanation: Your BIOS needs to be replaced.
Diagnosis: Got to your motherboard manufacturers web site and download the new Bios.
• 1-2-1
Explanation: You have a bad timer chip on the motherboard.
Diagnosis: Replace the motherboard.
• 1-2-2 or 1-2-3 or 1-3-1 or 1-3-3 or 1-3-4 or 1-4-1
Explanation: Motherboards is bad.
Diagnosis: Replace the motherboard.
• 1-4-2
Explanation: Some of your memory is bad.
Diagnosis: Go to Basic Trouble Shooting
• 1-3-1
Explanation: Motherboards is bad.
Diagnosis: Replace the motherboard.
• 2-_-_ Any combination of beeps after two
Explanation: Some of your memory might be bad.
Diagnosis: Go to Basic Trouble Shooting
• 3-1-_
Explanation: One of the chips on your motherboard is broken.
Diagnosis: Replace the motherboard.
• 3-2-4
Explanation: Keyboard controller failure.
Diagnosis:

Have asus p4s8x mob,when adding 3rd stick of memory (1gb) total of 3gb.computer hangs on startup 1long 3 short beeps. if i remove one old stick and leave new with old (2gigs total)it works fine,also works...


The Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX uses PC-3200 type memory and usually ships from Asus with 0MB of RAM. The Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX supports up to 2GB of RAM. Maximizing your system memory will allow your Asus Motherboards to operate as fast as possible and offer the most productive environment.
RAM modules must be installed in special locations on the motherboard called Sockets. These memory sockets are what hold the RAM module in place and can range from 1 to 16 or more. Banks consist of a group of 1 or more sockets. A system can have 1 or more of these banks of sockets. If a system has more than 1 socket in a bank, a Kit must be purchased for that bank. A kit is simply more than one, usually 2 or 4, like RAM modules. All sockets in a bank must be filled, and for such systems we sell memory in a kit. Typically you will see 2x512MB or 2x256MB signifying you are purchasing 2 units of 512MB RAM modules or 2 units of 256MB RAM modules, respectively.
The Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX has 1 bank(s) which have 2 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX can support up to 2 individual RAM modules.
We recommend you purchase the largest capacity RAM module each time you purchase memory. The reason for this is if you decide to upgrade again later and all your memory sockets are filled, you will not need to discard the already installed lower capacity memory.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX.

Computer won't boot and keeps beeping until I shut it off manually. Short very quick beeps, no pauses whatsoever. Frozen at Vaio boot screen.


How many beeps do you hear? Going on assumption, you may need to replace the memory cards - making sure they are the correct type for your board and making sure that you are using memory in pairs -- Using 2 512MB cards verses 1 card,

Good Luck

Video error beep codes not video problem


Sounds like Bad Memory chips try just using one chip. even though youve replaced the video card. so im guessing memory could be bad, at least one of them.

try not reseating them but just using one at a time in the slots

also yeah reseating the CPU can help too, an over heating CPU will still boot up, but not advisable. make sure heatsink is present and fans are working. thermal grease is good too on cpu.

but check memory if you have mixed memory like 128mb and 512mb chips try smaller one first if it works then try the higher one.

but sounds like a memory problem, they can go bad almost instantly.

4 seconds long beep


I think that either you have a bad power supply or it is not connected properly. I suppose it could also not be supplying enough power.

Try disconnecting all of the connections to the Motherboard and reconnecting them. Make sure they seat properly. Try a new power supply. You can get a good one from Newegg.com

ASUS A8S-X beeps sometimes on startup!


Hi 1 Long, then 3 Short Beeps: Video error 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. Remove your video card inspect it for damage and then re insert it. Try rebooting and see if the error remains. If so replace the battery on the mother board and try a different video card. If you have a video card built in then remove 1 srick of the RAM and re boot. Do the same with the other stick. If the error still remains then there is a fault in the Mother Board I hope this helps!
