Hi:) Turn the computer off but leave it plugged in so you have no static problems. Open the computer tower and on the motherboard near the Cmos Battery there is a blue or red jumper that covers 2 of 3 pins move it to the other side of the 3 pins for 30 seconds then put it back that will reset the bios to default.

2 beeps = memory problems. Since you get them even after the memory has been replaced then the problem is in the motherboard itself. Check the capacitors for bulging. If you can't find ones or you can't replace them then the motherboard is dead.

Soyo k7v dragon plus motherboard continuous

Hi Jopav1,

At the age of *********** board, I would recommend physically looking at the board, in particular, the large upright capacitors. If the tops are bulging, or have anything leaking out of them, send the board to a recycler, and look for an exact replacement on the used market, or replace with new. I just bought the same board you have today for $25, with AMD 1800 CPU.

At 10 years of age, the battery is probably past due for replacement too. It is a standard CR2032 3Volt battery. If you replace it quickly, you may not loose your BIOS settings.

If you have a volt meter, you can check your power supply voltages. Again, your manual will show what voltages to expect at each power connector pin. A range of +/- .05V is generally allowable on all sources.

Also try unplugging all boards and powering it up. The beep should change to a sequence of 2-1-3-1 beeps, indicating that it's not able to see the video card. If you still only get a repeated long beep, It's possible that the CPU itself may have died. These are also available very cheap at this point. The fact that you are getting a cycling beep indicates to me that the CPU is OK though.

I looked up beep patterns and did not find anything for one long repeating beep for the Phoenix BIOS on your board. There is no mention of them in the Soyo manual either.

Last resort is resetting your BIOS settings to "First Birthday", and try again. This will require you to re-set any manual settings you had set previously (probably 10 years ago). This is done by moving the jumper located between the green LED, and the battery, to the two pins nearest the LED, for a second, and then back to the position nearest the battery.

Good luck

Wire connections/installation

the +/- wires don;t really mater ! but as a general rule, the writing on the cable connectors should be facing you !

Soyo inc GVLK3278AB pc vga screen reads no signal what's the problem

Either the cord isn't hooked up, a pin is bent, or the computer isn't sending a signal. In the last case, you may need a new graphics card.

Out of range indicates that you have attempted to use a resolution the the monitor is incapable of handling.

Lower your resolution and try again until you can get it to do what you wish then try to do each monitors resolution individually.

Why has my monitor turned orange. model dylm19r6 computer monitor

If you mean the light on your monitor is orange instead of green, it means the monitor is not receiving data from the computer. Here's some tricks I would try... 1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor. 2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor. 3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on. 4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works). 5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord. 6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced. 7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

I have a monitor model

youight cheak the leads first

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer 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 there probably old and faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure 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
