Displays momentarily and asks for CPU fan connection. I have changed 4 fans and still get the same error message and the display goes off.


You're sure you have the cpu fan connected to the correct socket? sounds like it's not connected, or is connected to a different socket. Does the fan turn?

No possible bios file found


not sure what &#39 is

Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Find and fix errors in your system BIOS
BIOS Patcher can find and fix errors in your system BIOS (only AWARD BIOS for now) and also it can add or open new features, i.e. some features that your BIOS has but they are closed by manufacturer of your motherboard. It scans rom file. If it finds any known errors it fixes the errors. If it finds any closed features it opens it. hope this helps

My dv6-1247 cl when i turn on the power it beep 8 times and the screen does not come on help


Yu will need to determine which BIOS you have a see below
The computer beeps several times
If you hear several beeps from the PC speaker, it means that the computer failed its power-on self test (POST) because a problem was detected. The POST is a procedure that tests several components such as power, BIOS, CPU, memory, and video. Only if all those tests pass, the computer will then allow the operating system to load. But if one or more of these tests fail, beeps indicate a problem and the boot process is halted. These errors are a little more difficult to troubleshoot.
To diagnose the problem, listen to the beeps carefully and write down the sequence. Is it one long beep? Is it several short beeps? How many? Once you have the beep sequence documented, you need to find out what it means. What BIOS do you have? When you first turn on the PC, look at the top of the first screen to find out. Common BIOS types are Award, Phoenix, and AMI.
Award:
1-2-2 Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information Any other beeps Most likely a RAM problemYou can find more detailed information about Award error messages on Award's web site.
Phoenix:
1-2-2 Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information 1-2-2-3 BIOS ROM Checksum 1-3-1-1 Test DRAM Refresh 1-3-1-3 Test Keyboard Controller 1-3-4-1 RAM Failure 1-3-4-3 RAM Failure 2-1-2-3 Check ROM Copyright Notice 2-2-3-1 Test for unexpected interrupts 1-3-4-3 RAM FailureYou can find more detailed information about Phoenix error messages on Phoenix's web site.
AMI:
1 beep Refresh failure 2 beeps Parity error 3 beeps Base 64K memory failure 4 beeps Timer not operational 5 beeps Processor error 6 beeps 8042 - gate A20 failure 7 beeps Processor exception interrupt error 8 beeps Display memory read/write failure 9 beeps ROM checksum error 10 beeps CMOS shutdown register read/write error 11 beeps Cache memory badYou can find more detailed information about AMI error messages on AMI's web site.
If you get beep errors, you should try to think what happened right before they started. Did you add a new piece of hardware? If so, it might be faulty or not installed right. Remove it, then try again. If everything is fine without the hardware, try to reinstall and configure the hardware again. If that does not help, try exchanging it and see if that corrects the problem. If the error persists, narrow it down systematically. Remove everything but the CPU, memory, keyboard, and video card, then boot again. Does the error still occur? If not, then add one piece of hardware and try again. Repeat until one new component causes the error and you now know who the culprit is. If yes, then reseat your CPU, memory and video card and try again. If the error still happens, try replacing the CPU, video card and memory one by one to see if one of them is the troublemaker. If that does not help, you could have a bad motherboard. Check the motherboard carefully for any signs of damage. Also check for shorts, a metallic object could have found its way onto the motherboard, or the motherboard is not installed correctly and touches the case somewhere.

Error message saying now boot device found. I haven't made any changes to the system. This happened once before and I found a solution but didn't keep the information. The previous solution had to do...


It's not BIOS related, the MBR on the hard disk is corrupted. Follow this to fix it:

My hardware monitor found an error how do i fix this.


Hi:
Usually the hardware monitor is trying to tell you something, like a fan is failing or something is getting too hot. You need to open the hardware monitor page and see what the actual error is. On boot up, you either hit Delete key or F1 and then tab over to the hardware monitor page.

Bios problem


Are you using the ON BOARD video output? or are you using an external video card?
Was the computer working and you installed SOFTWARE to enhance something?

I will assume the you know how to get into the BIOS setup to tell your cpu the diffenrnt configurations?!!
1st)Replace the VGA video card with anything...does not have to be FANCY, FANCE. and reboot...same problem? not the same problem?
2nd) take everything out of the desktop except memory and boot up.
continue adding hardware (one at a time) and reboot. If the message comes up..AFTER you've installed a hardware....that is the problem.

Error message


Open Your system and there is a Battery which looks like a Coin. that is CMOS Battery (CR2032) Change that battery and then Reboot your system and try go to BIOS menu with DEL , F11 , F1 or F2. Either of these Buttons can Work.

This will resolve your issue

SYSTEM ERROR


1) if you have nothing in a USB port you will need to set bios
Try removing M/board battery for 2 to 3 hours some people say less then replace it most times it should set BIOS back to default
also check setup of hard disks master slave etc

Last resort with 15 seconds you should be able to see
press ?? key to access BIOS next boot keep pressing key see if that works
