Hi i just get 3

The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes.
The computers way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

3 beeps, pause, 3 beeps, pause,......
The Gigabyte GA-6BX7 mobo, (MOtherBOard) has an Award BIOS.

3 continuous beeps indicate a Ram Memory failure.

1) Even if the ram memory modules seem to be seated, and locked in, remove, and reinstall.

2) Before you reinstall, it would behoove you to clean the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram memory modules, with a pencil eraser.

Doesn't take very much corrosion to make a bad contact. (In fact after you clean with the eraser it may look as though you've done nothing at all. You have) Gold makes an excellent conductor, but can corrode.


(You can click on the photo to enlarge. You can enlarge twice)

Use air to remove the eraser dust.
If you have a can of compressed air for computers available, use it.
If not air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Reinstall the Ram Memory module/s.

3) Still no?

Computer off, unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions.

If you have more than 1 Ram Memory module, remove all of them.
Lay the Ram Memory module that was in Slot 1 on a wooden surface.
(Ram memory slot closest to the Processor)

Use one of the other Ram Memory modules, or the other Ram Memory module, and insert it into Slot 1.
Plug the computer back into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

4) Still no?
Turn the computer off, (Hold the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds), unplug from power.
Remove the Ram Memory module, use the other one, or another one.
Repeat the steps above.

Post in a Comment as to your findings.

Audio divers

I agree with peepnklown, there does not appear to be any audio on this motherboard. it is not in the specs and the photos of the board do not show an audio connector block on either the 6bx7 or the 6bx7+

you can easily add sound to this board by using a PCI sound card, something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Creative-Sound-Blaster-Audigy-SE/dp/B000CF0ZXK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1195135982148&sr=1-2

or maybe something more elaborate if you have expert sound requirements like DTS or Surround sound.

BIOS update (motherboard GA-6BX7+)

Please disable "BIOS Flash Protection" function in the BIOS or by Jumper. About the details, please refer to your motherboard manual.

refer to page 22 of THIS manual

If you "search" the word "flash" there are many references that may be of assistance if the jumper does not resolve issue for you

Gigabyte mother board ga-6bx7+

You might have damaged the CPU/ motherboard during the process of overclocking.

Check your CPU on other compatible mobo.

Check your mobo documentation properly & set the jumpers rightly. If that doesn't help, you will have to replace the mobo.

Gigabyte GM-M5050 not connecting to laptop.

it is only a USB mouse and works on any pC really. w7 needs no special driver for this mouse ever, it uses PnP, plug and play and the internet must be active and working for PnP to work is it? not told that. your failed computer is all messed up with w7 even infected monza is w7, 2012 made (year) the usb ports are first not mouse the device manager must show all USB ports have good drivers, and you test them using a USB stick of thumbdrive memory to be sure they do work, and if does good or use USB keyboard to test usb ports all if all that works then the mouse is tried. and internet connected and the mouse to when connected must show up in device manager. and actually function/

Hi i have a gigabyte

talk to gigabyte.com is the cooler not from gigabytes is that it? so is this below? i guess you meant Model# GZ-FW1CA-AJS go back to air or upgrade to far better cooling this is not. cheap cooling is no good. will not last. also above is know for bad corrosion inside, rule #2 buy cooling only from makers that see spare parts for it. or is doomed. the manual shows no parts list for sure water level so needs new water tank I guess, why not ask maker for support no PC store sells parts for this custom case.(turn key is seems) or defeat that switch and just look at level at step 1 , before turned on. (that is what I would do, but sure back to AIR

Changed out atx power supply because computer not powering up. Do I replace with same motherboard with same or buy new Windows 10 Box.

ok, a simple hardware question only. w10 could careless about PSU. (facts) mobo is micro atx size 24.4cm x 24.4cm not powering up has many causes, even simply stuck in sleep mode. (power on button held for 10seonds and released last is 1 cure. of about 20 causes (up to) GA-F2A78M-D3H (rev. 3.0)or rev. 4.0????? rev is on bottom left of mobo, normal tower case. no case told the PSU is called ATX and all work here 500 to 750watts 24 pin power is normal but CPU power uses 8 pin power plug PSU.marked ATX12v psu lacking 8 pin, can use 4 to 8 adpater. vast here work, in real ATX case not micro cases. https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=psu+atx&N=4131%20100007657%20600014006%20600479294&isdeptsrh=1&Order=1 from you manual . 12vatx-undefined-undefined-0.jpg dead PC are all fans dead.> that is dead PC. the monitor must be good and connected the the VGA jack if using GPU card then it must connect to the monitor the BIOS screen must work or the PC is dead or GPU card is dead. strip the PC down ,any thing in the PC shorted will make PC dead. if strip down tests fail the PSU may be bad is its fan dead too? both power connectors most be connected above or PC will be dead.
