Question about AOpen AX34-U Motherboard
I was given 2 aopen ax34 computers and have been using one for 3 years. It's for a simple application at work (internet only) and has worked fine. I recently was unable to start the computer and got an error message that upon investigation suggested that the RAM was corrupted. A friend and I opened up the CPU, replaced the RAM from the unused computer and started it back up only to get a loud beeping noise. Neither of us had any idea what it was. At that point, we put in the original RAM and the computer still made the loud noise (neither computer came on at all). SO...next we tried starting the unused CPU and it made the same noise. At that point it dawned on us that it was probably some type of tamper alarm. Any idea how to reset it?
I don't think that board actually has a tamper alarm in the bios, password security yes but I saw no mention of a tamper alarm. Besides, a tamper alarm won't stop the pc from booting, it just lets you know that the case has been opened....sorry. I think you likely have a mainboard/ram issue.
First thing is to clear the bios. Here's how. Right beside the floppy connector, there is a jumper labeled 'JP14'. Please do the following
Try to fire it up again. If it still won't boot, then let me know the number of beeps it makes and the pattern to the beeps ie: one long beep then another long beep or 1 long beep then 2 short ones. These beep are actually telling you what the problem is.
Hope this helps! Post a comment and let me know how you make out.
