I try to run the PC which is used the P4i65GV motherboard.
But there is no beep, no display just runngin CPU Fan.
So I'd test that board with PC Analyzer PI0049F, There has only show the error code " 0 ". I'd test the CPU, Memory, also CMOS battery.All of them are OK.There has no Display Card at the PC.So I'd decide that the board is gone.Can anyone give me how can I do more?

i would like to know how many and the kinds of beeps? there are what they call beep codes which indicates what kind of problem the your laptop is experiencing: here are the common ones:
0 beep = no power, loose card, short 1 short beep = normal,POST (Power On Self Test), your computer is ok 2 short beeps = POST error, review screen for error code. continuous beeps = no power, loose card, short repeating short beeps = no power, loose card, short 1 long, 1 short beeps = motherboard issue 1 long, 2 short beeps = video issue 1 long, 3 short beeps = video display circuitry three long beeps = keyboard/keyboard card error one beep, blank, incorrect display = video display circuitry
aside from the 1 short beeps, you need to take your laptop to a technician to have it looked at.
THe most common beeps that you will encounter 95% of the time in repairing PC's are:
1 beep - computer ok continous beeps / long beeps - memory error continous short beeps - bios boot block/corrupted bios 1 long beep followed by 3 short beeps - video card error
or this might help
you can check out this list
1 short - Computer ok 2 short - RAM failure 3 short - Parity RAM failure 4 short - System timer failure 5 short - Motherboard failure 6 short - Keyboard controller error 7 short - CPU failure 8 short - Video RAM failure 9 short - ROM BIOS error 10 short - CMOS read/write error 11 short - Cache RAM error 1 short, 3 long - Memory failure 1 short, 8 long - Video adapter failure
Check board/chipset makers website for more infomation.
1 long - Memory error 1 long, 2 short - Video error 1 long, 3 short - Video failure Continuous beeps - Memory or video failure
that AWARD relies on motherboard manufacturers to develop their own
beep codes - the above are only their own internal codes. You will need
to refer to your own manual for an explanation of precise codes.
Standard IBM beep codes.
No beep - Power supply or motherboard failure 1 short - System is ok 2 short - POST error (code displayed on screen) Repeating short - Motherboard failure 1 long, 1 short - Motherboard failure 1 long, 2 short - Video display adapter failure 1 long, 3 short - Video display adapter error 3 long - Keyboard error
Pheonix beep codes
1-1-3 CMOS memory failure 1-1-4 BIOS failure 1-2-1 System timer error 1-2-2 Motherboard error 1-2-3 Motherboard error 1-3-1 Motherboard error 1-4-1 Motherboard error 1-4-2 Memory error 2-x-x Memory failure (any number of other beeps) 3-1-x Chipset error (any number of other beeps) 3-2-4 Keyboard controller error 3-3-4 Video adapter failure 4-2-4 Expansion card failure 4-3-4 Time of day clock failure 4-4-1 Serial port error 4-4-2 Parallel port error 4-4-3 Math co-processor error
Hi.first pull-out your motherboard in the CPU case then power on without memory only processor installed.if you hear continuous beeping your motherboard is working good. try this beep code means.
No beep means short,no power,bad CPU,loose peripherals. One beep means everything is normal running motherboard. Two beep means CMOS error IC. One long beep,one short beep means motherboard problem. One long beep,two short beeps means video card problem. Three long beeps means keyboard error. Repeated long beeps means memory error. Continuous hi-lo beeps means CPU overheating.
Go to the Intel website and under the support portal, find the 3 short and 2 long beep code under the BIOS fault codes..
Or try this..,you are getting 1, 2, or 3 beeps that indicate a memory failure.1 beep - Refresh Error (with nothing on the screen and it is not a video problem) 2 beeps - Parity Error 3 beeps - Base 64 K memory failure
Reseat the memory.
Make sure that the contacts on the memory and the socket are clean.
Try removing one bank of memory modules at a time. Note: Some systems might need to have a memory module in Bank 0.
Try using RAM chips from the same manufacturer with the same part number and speed.
Check for a faulty memory module by trying the memory in a known good system.
Trying known good memory in the system.
Check the power supply and check for power fluctuations.
You really aren't giving much info, so here are some beep - codes, also make sure nothing came loose on the motherboard or other components ( do this ONLY if you know how ) Safety first.
BIOS Beep Sound core list
1 short(Beep) System booting is normally.
2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
Long(Beep) continuous DRAM hasn't inset correctly.
Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has problem.
1 short(Beep) DRAM Flash Error
2 short(Beep) DRAM ECC Check Error
3 short(Beep) DRAM Detect Fail
5 short(Beep) CPU Error
6 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
8 short(Beep) Display card memory Error
9 short(Beep) ROM Error
1 long - 3 short(Beep) DRAM Damage
1 long - 8 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB.
Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board:
AWARD BIOS Beep Codes
1 short: System boots successfully
2 short: CMOS setting error
1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error
1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error
1 long 3 short: Keyboard error
1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error
Continuous long beeps: DRAM error
Continuous short beeps: Power error
As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps.
When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system.
Bios codes from the link below.
3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to memtest.org Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11
You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory.
This should help.
Thanks for using FixYa!
it depends on the bios chip maker Here's some other beep codes:
for Award and Phoenix BIOS:
1 short beep: Normal 2 short beeps: CMOS error 1 long and 1 short beep: DRAM error 1 long and 2 short beeps: Video card error 1 long and 3 short beeps: Keyboard error 1 long and 9 short beeps: ROM error Long continuous beeps: DRAM not installed correctly Short continuous beeps: Bad power supply
1 short beep: DRAM flash error 2 short beeps: DRAM ECC check error 3 short beeps: DRAM detect error 5 short beeps: CPU error 6 short beeps: Keyboard error 8 short beeps: Video card error 9 short beeps: ROM error 1 long and 3 short beeps: Bad DRAM 1 long and 8 short beeps: Video card error
Invoking Beep Codes
If the computer is actually functioning and the computer beeps continuously, then there is a problem with a voltage on the power supply being incorrect or the CPU overheating. IMMEDIATELY go into the BIOS and check CPU temperature, fan speed and voltages
Annoying isn't it? You have built your computer you switch it on and then nothing happens except a few beeps from the PC speaker. Frustration sets in as you try to figure out what is wrong with it. If you didn't already know the computer has already told you the problem. It can't speak of course but it can direct you to the problem. Its all in the beeps. The BIOS can recognise when the problem occurs and sends a signal out to send a certain amount of beeps through the speaker. These beeps then tell you the location of the problem.
Unfortunately not all the BIOS' use the same codes as each other. Two of the main BIOS manufactures AMI and Award (now Phoenix) have different codes for there errors.
# of Beeps Error Description 1 Refresh Failure The memory refresh Circuitry is faulty 2 Parity Error Parity error in the Base (1st 64K) of memory 3 64K Base Memory Error Memory error in the base memory (1st 64K) 4 Timer Not Operational Timer 1 is not functioning (also caused by error in base memory) 5 Processor Error CPU error 6 8042 Gate A20 Failure Unable to switch to protected mode 7 Processor Exception Interrupt error The CPU on the CPU card generated an interrupt error 8 Display Memory Read/Write Error Video adapter is missing, incorrectly seated or has faulty memory 9 ROM checksum error The ROM checksum does not match that of the BIOS 10 Coms Shutdown Register Read/Write The shutdown register for coms RAM has failed 11 Cache Memory Bad The cache memory test has failed. Cache memory will be disabled. *** DO NOT enable it ***
With the first 3 beep codes, its well worth re-seating the memory just to make sure that it's in correctly. 8 Beeps is probably the most common in my experience. Can be caused by a badly seated Graphics card. If you have re-seated it then check with another Graphics card in the board.
Always check for loose components before sending the board back as this is the main cause of errors on the POST.
Award states that they now only use one beep from there BIOS. This beep is one long beep and then two short beeps. This indicates a graphics card problem. Any other beeps should be treated as a RAM problem first and then the board sent in to be inspected.
The reason that the Award BIOS only uses the beep code for display problems is that it tries to display the error on-screen if at all possible. If the BIOS cannot initiate the display adapter then this causes the BIOS to make the beep code for a display error, which must be corrected before any other errors can be determined. Memory Test fails and hard disk failures etc will all be displayed on screen
The IBM BIOS works with Short and Long beeps as well as the Award BIOS. However the IBM one does still have codes to work from.
Beep Code Error 1 Short Beep Normal POST, System booted OK 2 Short Beeps POST Error - Code on Display No Beep Power supply or Motherboard error Continuous Beep Power supply or Motherboard error Repeating short beeps Power supply or Motherboard error 1 short, 1 long beep System board error 1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter error (MDA/CGA) 1 long, 3 short beeps Display adapter error (EGA/VGA) 3 long beeps 3270 keyboard card Phoenix BIOS The Phoenix BIOS works on a slightly more complicated manor than the others. It does display an error code for you and produce a series of beeps. This BIOS produces its beeps according to the hexadecimal code the error produces. The Phoenix BIOS has many different codes for its possible errors and so many different beep codes. Rather than list the entire section here, I have provided a link to the official PDF file containing the codes and how they are derived.
Phoenix BIOS Post Codes
System board errors should be looked at by a specialist, Again always try to re-seat components to ensure they are in correctly. If necessary take all components out except for the RAM CPU and graphics card, then try the system. Re-seating components is the number one fix for getting past the POST screen. One badly seated components can cause the entire system not to function. so pick out your bios and follow the steps above to diagnose .hope this helps
