The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM is securely seated

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function
obvisously the beeps are windows searching for some hardware it could be RAM cd/dvd hard drive or motherboard all of these must have secure connections for the computer to work
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

X6dh8-g2+ no video continous beep


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/xeon800/E7520/X6DH8-G2.cfm

Try to boot with only one stick of ram at the time, to find the failing ram module.

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 sound, 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.

The mainboard is useing Up to 16GB DDR2 RAM.

Try not to buy cheap ram, they are always failing.

Good luck

What do the red diodes D1 - D4 mean?


I do not see anything in the manual about LEDs for D1-D4
Super Micro Computer Inc Products Motherboards Xeon Boards X5DP8 G2 .

However if the motherboard is not posting it could be the RAM. One continuous long beep means that there is no memory detected (D1-D4 may refer to the dimm slots 1-4). You can try booting off of a single stick of RAM, and try different dimm slots to get the motherboard to post.

SuperMicroX6DH8-xg2 no POST beep no Video I remove RAM and reseatd RAM but still no POST


If it's 1 long and 2 short beeps it's a video controller error. Check the warranty status and RMA if possible: http://www.supermicro.com/support/rma/

If it's 1 repetitive long beep, it means that no memory is detected. Try booting with only 1 stick of RAM. Try different dimm slots to see if you can isolate the issue. You may have a few modules that do not want to work together, a bad stick of RAM, or a defective dimm slot.

Ram beep but no display bios jumper is clear stat bios jumper is normal then no start machine


Hello,
Please see this as reference

Continuous long beeps-RAM error
2 short beeps- BIOS error
1 long and 8 short beeps- Display Card error
1 long beep after few seconds 2 short beeps-FDC error
1 long beep after few seconds 1 short beeps-FDC is Ok
1 long beep and 2 short beeps-Display Card Error

Most probable cause is Ram memory, please try removing modules and reinserting, also try using alternately just one of them to determine which one is defective.

Hi! I get Supermicro U2 server with X5DPA-GG MBO. Cpu and memor modules are ok, but when I turn on server I get long error beep. I took manual and saw that's overheat problem (or should be). But server...


This sounds like a video controller issue. Try booting with a different monitor. Ensure the cables are connected to the motherboard correctly (fans/power/led indicators). Try booting off of a single stick of RAM. Otherwise you may need to check the warranty status and RMA the motherboard to have it repaired/replaced.

1 beep: circuits reset - ready to power up
5 short, 1 long: memory issue
8 beeps: video adapter issue

It does not start, gives one long beep (about 2-3 seconds) silence and beep again


Switching DDR cards solved the problem. I was getting long beeps every 2 seconds. No short beeps. Just one long beep every 2 seconds. Thanks Josh Whitehead.
