I have this motherboard. It worked great till yesterday. I pulled out RAM and put it back. And now the computer won't turn on. I hear that lousy beeps every 10 seconds.
Is it possible that BIOS was locked or something else concerning hardware changes??

Re: Problem with starting the computer
Remove the ram and check for any dust deposits in the ram slot, if you replaced the same ram stick, it should be alright.
If you need to you may need to reset the bios, by way of the JBAT 1 terminal CLRCLK, or CLRCMOS terminals or similair, so refer to your manual.
Also remove all peripherals apart from the ram processor and hard drive and try again, if you have 2 ram sticks try one at a time

sounds like ram to me. Open the case and pull one stick of ram,then restart the pc.If the same happens switch out ram one at a time till you've tried each stick by itself in the motherboard.BE SURE TO NOTE THE WAY THE RAM CAME OUT BECAUSE THEY HAVE SLOTS TO FIT IN!! REFERENCE THE PICTURE. GOOD LUCK!!!
the LED indication is a Memory failure. Make sure when inserting RAM that the power is unplugged and you press and hold the power button till all power is discharged from the motherboard. WHen inserting RAM, make sure levers are int he full back position and you press down firmly with both thumbs till the module snaps in place and the levers snap up in the locked position on their own (DO not pull up the levers)
If there is no change trying RAM modules in slots individually, then either all RAM modules are damaged, or the slot is bad, in which case a motherboard is required
you need to open cpu cabinet. Open back cover of cpu then refix the RAM memory. Pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes then put it back then all settings defaults. Make sure RAM is working fine. Try with another RAM .If you use 2 RAM memory then check with only 1 RAM 1 by 1. Open processor fan and processor then put it back . Clean dust from all parts . Reconnect both connection to harddrive. Make sure motherboard don't touch the cabinet. Remove pci card if any reattach vga card if you use pci vga card.Pull cmos cell cell from motherboard for 10 minutes then reconnect it.Then check. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hello there: please try this first unplug the power to the computer next open the case and unplug all of the cables and cords that connect to the harddrive cd rom ect ect now locate the power supply cord that goes to the motherboard and disconnect press the power button on the computer for 20 seconds and also if you have a reset button press it . what this hoes is releases any stored esd that is in the computer .. now plug in the power supply back into the board and plug in the power cord and try to boot the computer and see if it comes on if so great just plug in the cords to the cd rom harddrive ect ect and than reboot and you should be ok
what u may have done is wwhen u were installing the new board, gave a static shock to the system...that will cause only the fans to come on and nothing more...this is a bad problem bc u cannot fix it...if u figure out something else is wrong, and it gets fixed, let me know
Turn the computer off and disconnect the power cord. Open the case and remove the RAM. You need to install the RAM in the same slots that it was in before you removed it yesterday. There is a retainer at each end of each slot. Push those down and away from the RAM to release the memory. Depending on the memory, there will bee one or two indexing slots in the contact edge. There will be corresponding indexing ridges in the memory slots. Align the slots in the memory with the ridges in slots of the mother board and insert the memory. Make sure that the retainers close fully when the memory snaps into the slot. Close the case and connect the power cord. Turn the computer back on and it should boot normally.
Good Luck, and please let me kow how it works out for you.
if you can't even access the bios, the first thing i'd do is to try and reload it. open your computer, find your motherboard, and find the little cmos switch.change it's position, wait a for 30 secs, the flip it back in the previous position. if your computer still won't start, then your motherboard is prolly faulty and you need to get a new one.
your ram can be removed by first pressing down the little switches on either side of the thingy that holds the ram, and then gently removing it. when you put in the new ram, make sure your pc is placed so that you're putting the ram in from above. then just gently squeeze it in and flip the switches back. you should hear a click.
