I'm getting 1 short beep when i power on my foxconn nforce4 sli as well as no video. Is this a problem with my memory? (Two 1gb dual channel sticks of g.

New Pc Start Up Problems ( Beep Codes )

Having the the following problem when go to start it. (This is prior to loading any software. )

Get the following beep codes:

2 quick beeps then 8 short beeps immediately after the 2 quick. Then about 10 seconds later i get 2 short beeps followed by 1 short. I've checked to make sure the video card & memory are seated properly. I've double & triple checked all the jumper settings to make sure i didn't set those wrong, those are good. Checked to make sure the power is set to the right voltage (115)

This problem repeats itself even when i've disconnected the hd, and removed the video card. I've removed them each by themselves and together same problem as above. The only time the problem doesn't repeat itself is when the memory is removed, then i get the standard 3 beeps which indicates memory problem. I'm thinking bios problem or faulty hd. I get no picture on my monitor, so all i have are audible signals that there is a problem. Any body got any ideas?

Pc Has No Video Signal - No Beep Codes Or Tones

I have been trying for several days now to update one of my systems to a newer more powerful one. In both cases i was having similar problems. The first motherboard was an fic 1st mainboard k7 ati at31 fusion and i was using 256 ddr and a 1800 amdxp, it had the ati video built in on the board. Case and powersuppy were both genuine antec 300 watt ps. With this system initally i could get no power at all then after installing and reinstalling it powered up but would give me no video signal. Nothing to the monitor so i could not even adjust the bios or setup. I returned the above to frys and got a second motherboard of different type, an albatron kx400+ pro 8235 via kt333 and a new amd duron 1300 1. 3 ghz cpu. Placed these in a second new antec slk2600amb super mini tower case with antec 300 watt ps. At first it wouldn't power up either. Then it slowly started coming to life. Sometimes it would cycle on and off. Power to the drives floppy, hd, cd and dvd works until you connect the ribbon cables. Then they don't work at all. Video signal never does appear. No beep codes or tones. My suspiciion is that either 300 watts isn't powerful enough or the 256 of ddr memory is somehow faulty. But i now have tried this with two different motherboards from different manufacturers and the only common denominators is the same ram ddr memory and the similar yet different powersupplys from antec. In both systems i an unable to get any video signal. In one the video was built onto the motherboard and in the other i was using an aurora nvidia geforce 2 mx200 agp slot card. I am trying to update this system which is running windows me without going to xp at the moment. I need to use the same hard drive which already has all my data and programs installed.

Bootup Beep Codes Or Keys Pressed

I'm working on a toshiba satellite 1905 that had water spilled on it. After taking it appart and letting it dry, it gives a series of beeps during post. I can't be sure if it is beep codes reporting errors or something screwed up with the keyboard. The beeps stop after a minute or so, so i'm leaning toward keyboard errors. I am able to get into the bios and even get the system to boot. I do not have another keyboard to try. Am i on the right track? Any other suggestions?

Bad Motherboard, No Display, Post, No Beep Codes

Well yesterday i was playing hon for an hour or so then i logged off to take a break. That's when the computer started to lock up in intervals every 30-40 seconds then it finally froze up completely then my computer shuts down. Now when i start it, it boots but there is no post screen nor display and there are no beep codes to indicate hardware failure. So i am guessing the motherboard is toast? Or can it be that the cpu is fried? I don't have spare parts to test in this rig so i am pretty much sol and need to diagnose this properly so i can rma whatever is faulty. Here is the setup

Amd x2 5000+
Biostar gf8200 m2 se+
Msi 9800 gt oc
Nvidia sli-ready ddr2-800 2gb x2

I've taken the graphic card out and tried booting it using the internal gpu but it still showed no display. Also tried alternating the ram sticks and booting with one of each, still nothing. The only thing i can think of is either the cpu or mb.

No Post Screen Or Bios Beep

An old amd xp1600 system gave up the ghost. I've replaced the psu with a qtec 350w, replaced the mobo with an asus p4r800 vm and the new cpu is a p4 2. 8 ht and changed the memory to 512mb ddr400.connected all the ide cables, cpu fan cable, and both power cables to mobo and the front panel connectors to the header. When i power up the pc the cd/dvd drives work, cpu fan spins, power led on mobo lights and hdd makes encouraging sounds but no post screen or bios beep. Have tried reseating and checking all the connectors but still no joy. Anybody got any ideas why i shouldn't be getting a beep or post screen?

Do I Have A Dead Motherboard ? No Beep, No Bios Screen

This machine ran beautifully for over a year. For several months now, this homebuilt machine would occasionally fail to boot or restart, but it's gotten to where it will successfully post and boot maybe one out of 20 times. As of tonight, it will not boot no matter how many times i try. There's power - but no beep, no bios screen, just psu fan, cpu fan and case fan spinning. Pulled the board, and saw no sign of shorting. Thing's i've tried:

- Cmos battery (cr2032) was dead, at least my tester showed it just in the red, right below the green, so i thought, "aha!" And went to get a new battery today. Tested it before installing, it showed a full charge. Did the jumper thing on the motherboard that clears the cmos cache. Put in new battery - no difference. Dammit!

- Backside of motherboard shorted against the case? I pulled the motherboard, which was carefully stood-off when i installed it, completely out of the case, laid it on a dry towel, and connected only the 2 power connectors to the board, monitor to the on-board video connector, and one stick of ram (tried both sticks, one at a time). Attempted to power up to see if i'd get the post beep - it should post and show me the bios screen even if no drives are connected, right? But nothing. Just the psu, cpu and case fans come on. No beep, no bios screen. - Power supply? Pulled the power supply motherboard connector. Using a paper clip, i jumped the green and black pins to power up the psu while the connector was unhooked. The psu fan runs fine. With a digital multimeter, i tested all pins on the 24-pin atx power connector, plus the 4-pin cpu power connector. All the voltages are correct. The 3. 3v, 5. 0v, and 12. 0v values are all spot-on. I realize that is with no load, but it is something. - When the machine was running in xp, the asus motherboard monitoring app showed all voltages and temperatures to be normal. I rarely saw the cpu go above 45 celsius. - Seating of ram, video card, ethernet? Pulled everything and re-seated it. Tried both ram sticks, one at a time. - Ide issue? Tried every possible permuation of master/slave, primary/secondary on the ide chain with my ide devices, plus every ide cable i have lying around (which is quite a few). Also tried no ide at all. No difference. I'm at my wits' end! I am thinking the board is dead, since the psu seems to test out, and on the rare occassion when the machine does boot normally, it runs with perfect stability for days and days in either xp or os x, never had any sudden shutdowns out of nowhere. Here's the specs:
Processor: amd athlon 64 x2 4200+ dual-core - 2. 2ghz
Motherboard: asus m2nbp-vm
2gb ram (two sticks, 1 patriot and 1 crucial, tried together and individually)
320 gb sata hard drive
160 gb ide hard drive
Lg dvd-rw ide optical drive
Primo p4 atx mid tower case with 500w power supply
Added a geforce 7600 pci x16 for os x
Added a realtek 8139 pci ethernet card for os x

I am not doing any overclocking.

Gets A Single Long Bios Beep, Repeating Every 5 Sec

Everything is installed, hdd, memory, optical drives, processor, ect, and i try to start it up and everything seems to have power, but i just get a bios beeps. Its an msi board and i already checked the memory and that seems to be good, have to check the video card, and processor still, and psu and mobo, but that will just be ruled out by the time everything else is checked. Anyways, it has phoenix bios and this_chart has the codes for the beeps, but all i get is one single long beep, repeating every like 5 or so seconds, no boot up screen or anything.

Bios Beeping, A Long Beep Followed By Two Short Beeps

I am receiving the bios beeping of a long beep followed by two short beeps. According to every source that i have consulted about this code, it means that there is a problem with the video card. I have been using this card for a year now and it has functioned just fine up to this point. Nevertheless, i have reseated it several times to no avail. Next, i tried using a brand new video card and received the same error. I can therefore speculate that my issue isn't with the card, but with another component. I am not sure how to tell whether it is the motherboard or the power supply. I am therefore seeking advice on how to tell. At the time the problem began, i was playing stepmania, a dance dance revolution computer emulation program. The game itself can be played on very low-end systems with little or no problem, so i would not expect that it would have over-heated anything. During my gameplay, the computer crashed and restarted itself. After the computer restarted itself, it began booting windows. At the black windows xp screen with the bar that goes across the screen multiple times until going to the user accounts screen, the computer froze and i was forced to reboot the computer manually. From this point forward, the bios began giving the beeps and would not allow the computer to turn on again. I am currently using an enermax 600w psu sli power supply. It has never given me an issue since the day i bought it, nor given me a reason to believe that it was failing. I have connected the video card to the two power connectors with the provided power splitting cable. I have also plugged in the extra sli video card power cable on the motherboard even though i am not using sli. Because of these things, i would certainly hope that the power supply is not causing the issue. I am using an asus a8n-sli nforce4 ultra, pcie socket 939 motherboard. When powered up, the power supply led indicator shines green. All fans turn on, including that of the video card. All pieces of my computer, with the exception of the hard drives and cd drives, were purchased at the same time. I tested the video problem with a brand new bfg geforce 7950 gt 512mb pcie w/dual dvi/hdtv card as well. I am not sure if this is related, but i was having some trouble with my cd drives recognizing some media prior to the problem. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what could be the issue behind this system failure? Also i have tried resetting the bios cmos as well. In case there is use in this information, here is a list of all the parts:-

Computer specifications:

Asus a8n-sli nforce4 ultra, pcie socket 939 motherboard
Ocz 2048mb pc3200 ddr 400mhz el platinum (2 x 1024)
Amd athlon 64 x2 4200+ socket 939 (manchester)
Enermax 600w psu sli / server ready, pfc
Evga geforce 7900 gtx 512mb pcie w/dual dvi

Foxconn 655a01 Mobo Memory Issue

I just made my first build using a foxconn 655a01 mobo. I bought two ddr400 256's. So that should be 512. The bios recognizes 256 only. Xp only shows that i have 256. But, cpu-z tells me that i have in the two memory slots 2 256's which equal 512mb. Why is it doing this? Is there something i have to do in the bios?

Keyboard Scan Codes Are Wrong - Keys Are Switched

My keyboard is really messed up. Keys are switched or not working at all. I downloaded keytweak and have come to find out that some of the keyboard scan codes are wrong. For instance, the "n" key should have a scan code of 51 but it scans as 7. So when i press the "n" key it types the number 6. Anybody know how i can fix this?

Pc Does Not Even Get To Post Beep

The pc in question worked fine up until a couple weeks ago, the only recent upgrades made to it were adding a half gig of ram and a new video card, both of which worked fine for several months before the computer died. I've tried installing both the original ram and the original video card, neither have resolved the issue. When i turn the pc on now the machine has power, all fans etc start running, but the monitor recieves nothing and the machine does not even begin to approach the post beep. So right now the running total is that i've swapped out the video card, ram and power supply, i don't have a spare motherboard and/or processor around but i'm dreading the prospect of that being the last step. Can anyone think of something i might have missed?

No Beep Upon Booting Up

I was going to run it and flash the bios before continuing install, but that kind of requires the system to post. The internal speaker is hooked up to the motherboard, and there is no beep upon booting up. I referenced my mobos manual, and there is no code for no beep. I tried running the system without the ram in, and still no post. Im not really sure where the next debugging step is.

Beep Code

Whenever i turn on my computer, it makes this long beep noise and i am guessing somethings wrong with it. The thing is, everything seems to work fine. >_>;; i tried to "decode" the beep code, but i must be quite stupid, because i can't seem to match with the right one. My motherboard is: ga-965p-ds3. The beep codes listed on its manual are:
-
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
-

I have recorded the beep noise with my mp3 player and the sound has been slightly distorted(?), But it didn't change much from the actual sound.

Pc Will Not Boot, No Post Beep

My wife and i have matching custom built pc's. Recently the liquid cooling system in her pc needed to be flushed and refilled. I removed the mobo from the computer, pulled the cooling system from the cpu, flushed and refilled, cleaned and prepped both heatsink and cpu and applied new thermal compound, reassembled the system and turned it on. First time after flush it ran fine for about 10 minutes, then shut down normally (on it's own). Since then it has not booted properly. The indicator light on the mobo is illuminated, showing that there is power. Upon pressing the pwr switch, all devices begin to run, all fans, drives, and keyboard/mouse turn on, but the bios never starts to boot, and no post beep sounds. I am thinking that it is most likely the mobo or cpu but was hoping that someone could post an alternative here that i could try before shelling out the $200-$300 for replacement parts as everything is past warranty (by like 3 months).

No Post Beep Or Video

Recently my pc froze and when i reset it, no post beep and no video (no visual bios) or even beep codes. The power supply comes on and the drives are operational. It will stay like that for awhile. We cleaned the inside. Is it a virus issure or ram or what? We did nothing to disturb the comp. No new software or files. The only thing that might have provoked this was the fact i was running spybot and and switched users on xp and that might have taken cpu.

Single Beep On One Boot

Alright. I was playing around in the bios and i selected a fsb setting of 166 and rebooted. Blank screen, no boot. Nothing. So, as in previous instances of this i cleared the cmos by the jumper on my soltek sl-75frn2 and held the insert key as i powered on. Nothing. No go. The cd-rom reads, but doesn't do anything else. The hdd light comes on for about 20 seconds and disapears. I heard a single beep on one boot, that is all. I have unseated the memory and videocard independently to see if i would get a beep but there were no such instances.

No Post, No Beep Code, Nothing

A week ago, i had a fully running system that had worked fine for the past 2 years. What ended up happening is my video card began to fail, artifacting all over the place and eventually locking up. I sent it in to get it rma'ed and its in the mail. I got bored yesterday and decided to upgrade my video gard since radeon 4870's were on sale for 170 at my local shop. The card worked great, i played some tf2, messed with the clocks a little bit, watched my little bro play some wow etc. It worked fantastic, and was only 170. Good deal it seems. I made sure that the power requirements would not be too much. The card only uses 180 or so if i remember correctly, so it should be fine with a 500w unless my math is beyond retarded. Anyways, this morning i turn my box on and get no bios post message, no beep code, nothing. It powers up fine, but absolutely nothing happens other than fan activity and power lights. I can feel the harddrive spinning up, and the cdrom drive also works. This is what i have done so far:

-Checked all connectors, reconnected the video card power supply cables (what are those called anyways?). -Checked that my monitors were working (both dvi and vga monitors). -Pulled out all sticks of ram but one w/ video card in. Nothing. -Pulled out all ram and video card, turned it on, nothing. -Pulled out the video card, turned it on. Nothing. -Reset the bios by taking out the battery and using the reset jumper as instructed by my mobo's manual, put it all back. Nothing. -All of the capacitors on the motherboard look intact. -As far as i know nothing got hot last night, i was watching the temps to see how hot the new card runs. When i power it on everything comes alive, but i noticed that the harddrive activity light has nothing on it. Not sure if that means anything. I don't have another video card or desktop handy to swap cards/boxes to verify the video card is working/eliminate it as the problem, but i plan to do that later on today and will update this post, i just had a minute to post so i was hoping i could get some tips.system:-

Asus p5l-vm 1394 mobo
Asus 8800gts 320mb (now its a sapphire radeon 4870 1gb)
4gb of kingston ddr2 ram
500w psu
Intel core 2 duo e6600
320gb seagate hard drive.

Computer Beep Then Freeze

My friends computer is acting weird. He says this happens on the net more than anything. He'll be surfing and then the computer gives out a single beep and then freezes. He has to shut it down and reboot and then its fine for awhile. But usually happens again in a hour or so. He's on dial-up if that makes a difference.could it be overheating? Some feedback would be appreciated. He says it happens mostly on the net but has happened during normal use.

Stop Pc Speaker Beep

I found that even modifying the sound scheme didn't affect the command window's response to a ctrl-g (bel) character in the output. No matter what sound settings i made (muting the speakers, changing the volume) i would still get this beep at a heart-attack inducing volume level. Eventually i found that in windows xp's "advanced" options on the "volume control" applet (double-click the speaker in your system tray to bring this up) there is finally a "pc spk mute" checkbox that will shut the bloody thing up. If someone knows how to replace that horrible noise with a sensible sound i'd like to know.

Turn Off Laptop Beep

Now that i think of this i have always had this problem with dell laptops. I have a new xps 1710 and i can't figure out how to turn of the system beep. When i'm in windows i turn off all sound and it's mute, but the annoying and loud system beep is still there. I checked everywhere, bios, etc. And i can't find it. How do i turn that off, it's really annoying at work.

One Long Beep Followed By 3 Short Beeps

I just took apart my computer to clean it up some, but when i put it back together i forgot to plug in the 6 pin connector to my videocard. When i turned it on i got a long beep that wouldn't stop. I turned it on and off about 3 times to see if it'd go away before i noticed that i didn't have that plugged into my 9800gt. I plugged it in, then turned it on and the sound went away. Unforunately, when i turn on my pc now i don't get any video. I tried replace the 9800gt to my 7800gt, but i still get the same issue. I tried removing the ram and putting in 1 stick in at a time in different sockets, but that didn't fix anything either. I even tried putting my old 2gb pc6400 buffalo firestix in it, but that didn't work either. So now everytime i turn on my computer i get the long beep followed by 3 short ones. I looked online and it said that it's either memory or videocard issue i believe. If this is in the wrong place, then please move it and i apologize in advance. This is going to be a boring weekend if i can't get this fixed. Any suggestions besides doing a barrel roll?

Long Beep Then Three Short Beeps

Ok, i dont know how this happened but went to turn on my computer and there was no display, the hd did not bootup and the motherboard beeped. The sequence was poweron - one long beep inmediately then three short beeps stringt after. Also three seconds after that there are two more tones but deeper (like a sound effect from an old beeb or speccy game). Now heres the problem: i don't know the manufacturer of the board and i don't have the manual. Also as i can't see anything i can't get the serial to check on the web. There is little info to be got by looking at the motherboard. There is an sis 5571 chipset, an award bios chip, and a winboard chip but little else labelled. So far i removed all ram and that created a different beeping noise so i don't think its a ram issue. Also the psu works fine and all fans spin. Power to all devices and all cables are attached properly and firmly. Tried resetting the bios by removing the battery for 30min, but that did not help. Tried removing the cards and ide cables, one device at a time but that made no difference either. Bit stuck with this one really. Any ideas?
