I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I think three beeps on Intel is a memory issue. At least that what it was when I had a stick of cheap RAM crap out on me.

I'd run Memtest and go from there

RAM can fail from a number of causes. Heat exposure, flaky transistor junctions, who knows. I seriously doubt plugging the TV in had anything to do with it.
You could go into BIOS to ascertain if the RAM voltage is set correctly. Over-volting is a DIMM killer.

You should be able to get documentation for that board directly off Intel's web site. Intel used to give BIOS beep codes ion the board/chipset manuals.

They also have hardware monitor software as a free download. Look up "Intel Desktop Utilities Lite".

but I would like to ask you if I need to install the new Intel? Chipset Device Software for Intel? Desktop Boards are the advantages and disadvantages?....Can you help me please?


A:Intel Desktop Board DX58SO & Intel Chipset Device Sof

Their should be ( on the site where you found the update) information as to what issues it specifically addresses.Most of the time it is advisable to update chipset drivers. They control all the way everything your MB does, from the Ethernet to NB to Sb and ram communication. Where as a bios update should only be done if it specifically addresses issues you are experiencing, or new support for your CPU. This is of course my opinion. There'll be others I'm sure.Fabe

I have a INtel Desktop Board D945GCCR, and everytime I boot it up with the hard-drive i get a black screen, no intel logo, nothing happens to it just freezes up, when i remove the hard-drive (160 gb sata) it boots up to a screen still without the intel logo but it shows media failure and that it is quiting boot agent and that is all.

Has anyone had this problem before? This happens when there is no Windows installed on the hard drive. Can anyone help out? Thanks in advance.

Do you have another hard disk you can try?

If not, do you have a floppy drive you can boot to or maybe a CD-ROM drive and a bootable CD?

Try these and let us know your result.

Hi Guys! I am new here.

Well I am in trouble regarding Intel D815EEA main board of my uncles PC.

The problem is, the PC had Segate ST320423A 20.4 GB HDD which no more works. Now as we all know its almost impossible to get 20 GB HDD in the market so I thought to buy at list 80 GB, BUT, I am not sure if D815EEA will support 80 GB HDD or above.

He dosent have mainboard manual but I downloaded from but with no use. In the manual its not mentioned what is the maximum GB HDD would D815EEA support.

So please, if any one could tell me how and where can I find this info, it would help me a lot.

is it possible for intel discontinued desktop board users to get driver for windows seven.or i have to purchase new machine which supports windows seven? sorry for bad english & if there is any rules for new threads which i broked.coz i'm new here & don't know anything about rules.(p.s.Tried to find the rules before creating thread but unable to find)

A:intel discontinued desktop board drivers

I would say no or at least very unlikely as intel discontinued support for this board late 2006, running windows 7 on a Pentium 4 board is possible but for anything more than very basic tasks it's going to become painfully slow

your next problem with that age of motherboard is lack of ram

I would suggest save up and get a dual core motherboard to get you started

Hi everyone

I`ve been trying to install the 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate version on an Intel Desktop Board DZ77SL-50K using a 3TB Seagate HDD. Somewhere along the road, I learnt the motherboard must be switched to UEFI mode first in order to install the OS on a 3TB internal HDD. However, after enabling the UEFI mode in the BIOS menu, the mobo no longer recognizes the Windows 7 installation DVD although the Pioneer DVD drive appears in the boot menu and I can select the DVD drive to boot to.

Please someone help me figure how to boot to the installation DVD successfully in UEFI mode.

Here's the deal: (add the www to see it)

Everything on there seems decent but I am curious about the board itself. Would the Intel Desktop Board DP55WB Motherboard be good for gaming, which I wish to use my computer mainly for. I have at most a 700 dollar budget and this seems like a nice deal for it. I plan on putting a Geforce GTX 580 graphics card in it as soon as I get the money as a little side note if it matters.

I'd suggest looking at the same chipset, but in either Gigabyte or Asus brands. Intel boards are fine, as much as it goes, but the BIOS is very limited as to configuration for different memory, and overclocking options. Intel really markets it's boards as mainstream items, intended for average users and businesses, they're not really aimed at the enthusiast.

The feature set can vary widely from board to board, and you should have a look at these pages to see which board has the capabilities you need;

Hi, and thanks for looking at this problem. Hopefully you can help.
I was awake untill 4 this morning trying to figure out what the problem is with the motherboard i have just installed.
The problem is, i have installed the motherboard inside the case securly, connected the IDE cables, Floppy and Power Connector cables to the motherboard and the part i am confused on is, the front panel connecters. I cannot figure out which LED goes where, however i had guessed which is the power connector as i can power it on, but get no LED display on the front of my case, and no display on my monitor. I looked over the motherboard manual on the Intel website, and followed their instructions and still no luck.
Anyone who can help me, i would greatly appreciate it.
Many Thanks, Ant.

A:Recommend Desktop Board for Intel Pentium Processor E5200

Hello avishnashrawat mate that is a fairly old CPU being a 775 socket and you will be looking at getting a used board unless you find something local new which I am doubting very much. Now I can only find the specs for the CPU and I cannot find anything of any use except it does support 64bit stuff but I cannot make out or see what memory is supported so.

Sorry but if it were me and I had this processor that is just what I would have to do. Now there are some good 1150 socket boards at a reasonable price out here at around $88 for the ASUS B85M-F Motherboard, and coupled with say a Pentium such as the Intel Pentium G3240 ($79) or Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition G3258 ($89) or even a Intel Celeron G1840 at $59 then you would have an up to date board and processor albeit they are quite basic but I would suggest they are superior to the CPU you have now. Plus you then just need the other components to suit ie RAM.

Now I understand you might be tied to a budget but truly I think you would be better off doing that than throwing good money after bad, because using used components is like playing Russian roulette - you just would not know what you are getting.

Anyway perhaps things might turn out and you find something that you are asking after - good luck

hi 1bellb

make sure that all of your RAM chips are firmly placed into their slots and that they aren't susceptible to movement in and out of the slots. You could also run Memtest on your chips from here - You've heard right about the beeping sounds probably being caused by RAM issues. Good luck

Doesnt make any sense. There was 2 sticks in this system. Pull out one stick of ram and replaced it with another. Pressed the power button, no beeps but nothing on the monitor. Pulled that stick back out and put back the original one. Pulled the second stick and replaced it with another, now as soon as you hit the power button, it instantly gives off 3 long beeps and thats it, nothing on the monitor

All I can find in my BIOS code research is that three longs means keyboard, but I'm not even sure which BIOS code I would have.

I have an msi 4 beeps, short long 2 motherboard which I think uses AMI BIOS code and I accidently changed a setting on the BIOS menu and then it restarted and gave me short beeps along with a message that flashed kinda fast saying something along the lines of quot please insert usb flash disk with bios file quot CHECKING FOR USB DEVICE quot DEVICE NOT Found quot Afterwards I removed anything in the USB slots and tried but still got the same message I then read that some people solved the issue 4 short beeps, 2 long by removing the power cord and waiting before removing the CMOS I waited minutes to insure that the extra charge dissipated then 4 short beeps, 2 long removed it I waiting for about minutes before reinstalling it and now I got short beeps a pause and then long beeps I also have no image on the monitor I tried looking into the beeps but I couldn t find a description of this code I could find info for short and info for long but I m not sure what this means either I am not over clocking either It WAS running windows Motherboard gm E - fx GPU MSI Radeon HD CPU AMD FX A single TB Western Digital black HDD Any help would be much appreciated to solving this nbsp

Computer has been working fine, all of a sudden a game im playing locks up, so i reboot the computer. I then start the game again and a few minutes later it unexpectedly quits and i cannot do anything but move the mouse.

I reboot the computer again and this time the monitor does not display anything and i get one long beep and two short beeps. I looked up the codes and saw it had to do with the video card. I take the video card out and disconnect it and i get the same beep (dont know if its because the card is absent). Any other ideas?

Good Day to you all,

I just purchased an HP ENVY H8-1430 Intel Core i5 with 10GB RAM & 2TB HD from Woot.

After receiving the computer, I cannibalized my old system of some RAM, the Hard drive, and video card; an ATI Firepro V4800.

After installing those devices, I get 6 long beeps on startup and no display of the bios. The desktop does eventually show up, and all the devices are showing as working in Device Manager.

I have updated the graphics driver to the latest version from ATI's website.

I want to know what is causing the 6 long beeps, and how I can get display during the startup routine. I tried pressing F1, F12, and F10 during startup, but I can't get any BIOS to display.

A:[SOLVED] Windows 8, 6 long beeps

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

What was the make and model number of the PC with the old parts?

Did you make sure that the RAM and HDD of the old PC were compatible with the new one?

Did this beeping happen right after installing those parts?

There is no error code for 6 long beeps but there is for 6 shorten beeps. Maybe you could try to record the sounds?

Do you see the BIOS screen at all during bootup?

Yesterday I shutdown my computer and when I went to turn it back on it was not sending a signal to the monitor and the computer bios was letting out a sequence of beeps.

1 Long beep followed by two short beeps.

I consulted my Motherboard manual to find that the beeps meant the graphics card was loose/not in all the way. So I opened it up jostled the card a bit and voila the computer started up and ran without a problem for ten minutes. I restarted it to get some updates and...well same problem back to square one.

It seems as though everytime I take the GC out and put it back in the computer will work but if I don't then it won't work.

PS: I cleaned the PCI-E Slot and the GC.

Any thoughts?

Make sure the fan is spinning on the card.

Take a pencil eraser and clean the gold contacts on the card, becareful and blow the eraser dust off before installing.

It could just be a bad video card that acts up when it gets hot

I have an IBM Thinkcentre M50 with a P4 CPU and a AGP card Geforce FX5500 and it works just fine. I would like to upgrade the video to a Geforce 6600gt which I have. However, when it is installed, I get the beeps and no video. Is the Motherboard incompatible, is the power supply not good enough. It's only 230w. Lenovo says the card should work, but I'm thinking, what do they know.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I just removed the card and placed it in another older PC and it worked. I then put the card back into the IBM with the power supply from the old PC and nothing except the beeps.

Visual inspection doesn't identify any obvious bad capacitors.  Any help would be appreciated!Thanks,Doug

The three models of the Gateway SX2855 I found all have Intel HD integrated graphics. Unless you installed a Video card or yours is a model with a PCI video card, you have integrated graphics.Is it booting? to a black screen? Have you tried F8 at boot to boot into safe mode?As soon as you start, start tapping F8 rapidly.If you get into safe mode, go to Programs and Features and uninstall the video driver and reboot.

A:Constant long, loud beeps?

When did this problem start? had you changed anything before it started to happen? What is the age of the system?

Check all external and internal connections, remove all cards including the Memory and clean the contacts with a soft pencil eraser (up and down the contacts not from side to side) and reseat the cards. Test.

You could also try a start up with just one memory stick installed, then swap so you test with one stick at a time. Also try with just one memory stick per channel.

What is the make of your bios? you will see the name at the top of the screen during post. Please also state your OS.

I would start with the is a LOW END PSU with less than 70% efficiency...and your GPU requires a minimum of 450W its quite possible that you are simply not getting enough juice to the card. you DO have the 6pin PCIE connector hooked into the GPU right?? Have you checked the voltages being reported in the BIOS?? check those and report back....

Hey guys, this is what has basically happened:

Last night, I was on my PC when a powercut happened. All power gone for about 1/2 hour, no big deal...I thought. When the power came back, I was able to log onto my PC however there was no internet, and this was apparant on all other computers in my house and the router also indicated this.

I then logged on this morning, with no internet still however there was internet in the rest of the house. I thought to restart the router and also my PC, however, when I tried to turn my PC back on, all i got was 1 long beep then 2 short beeps. I did some research and found out that this was a visual problem..something to do with my video card.

Is there anything immediate I can do right now to verify this, or do something..whatever..

Thanks for your time, any help is appreciated.

I'd swap ram sticks or try reseating the ram. You're down to just the board cpu plus ram. so I'd say it's probably bad ram. You might also want to try resetting bios to defaults if you changed/overclked anything.

Hi all,
I thought I'd upgrade my GTX 285 to a GTX 580, so I got one and after installing it properly and turning the computer on, it proceeds to beep 4 times (1 long, 3 short). I checked, and apparently it means the video card is not detected, however I am sure that it is inserted properly and into the right slot. After going back to my 285, everything works fine again. I have a 620W power supply. I also have two 6-pin cables, even though the card has 6 + 8 pins (could this be the problem?).

I scanned over your post. What I see here is the need for you to exchange your ram for something more compatible. And your ram seems to be faulty.

HP xw4100 makes five long beeps on startup. What should that mean?

A:HP xw4100: five long beeps on startup

Hi: 5 Beeps = a memory issue of some kind. The normal troubleshooting steps involve removing and reseating each memory module. If that doesn't get the 5 beeps to go away, then remove all memory modules but one and test each one at a time in order to isolate the defective memory module. If that doesn't work, most likely the system board has failed.

Hi I don t really know in which category this belongs so I ve put it in General What is the problem My friend has a problem with his computer Everytime he tries to boot his PC the screen remains black and his computer beeps long short beeps after that it keeps repeating a short beep We searched on the internet for this beep code and found that it could be a RAM or EGA problem However it gives the same beep code without a videocard and we thought that it should just boot with the onboard chipset We also tried removing the RAM sticks by both or switching them without any luck When did it happen We were at a Lanparty with people at the time we were with and the th had yet to arrive When he did he plugged his laptop in and my friend s computer just died but all other PC s stayed on A thing to mention is that we were all plugged into the same socket And that socket was short 1 long 3 boot, to beeps and Failed not grounded His Hardware Videocard Ati Radeon HD MB Motherboard Asus P QL SE RAM x GB DDR Mhz unknown We would appreciate any help Marty nbsp

A:Failed to boot, 1 long and 3 short beeps

If you can, I'd suggest getting some more RAM and testing it.. If it's still giving you the 1 long and 2/3 short beeps then it could have blown your motherboard.. < Asus Award Beep Codes

Lists the 1 long 2 short as a video issue, and a continueing beep as a RAM issue, so if your getting both then I'd say either the boards gone and it can't read anything, or it just blew out both... I'd say it's best to get it tested at a shop where they have parts they can test on it.. Best of luck to you.

When I power on the computer I get 3 long beeps then 4 short beeps.  this happens for 5 times then the computer starts.  I have removed everything except the power supply and I have done a restore.Nothing has helped.  What are my next steps.  I purchased this as an open box this week so I can take it back but I would prefer to fix it. Thank you,Hank

A:3 long beeps 4 short, 5 time, then boots

@aumurph? Commentary You may want to take back the computer while you can do so. Open boxes can contain just about anything -- depending on the vendor, the contents may not have had any checks since the box was returned (or opened in the store without having been purchased).  Parts may have been switched out, the computer Operating System may not be "in new" condition, components may be missing or faulty. HP Desktop PCs - Computer Does Not Start and Emits an LED or Beep CodeRead and see Section:Beep and LED code descriptions Sometimes an 'open box' discount can come back and bite you.  (Personal observation.) If the computer is for sale at, know that HP provides competitive prices, no "open boxes", and guarantees the purchase. When you see a Post that helps you,Inspires you, provides fresh insight,Or teaches you something new,Click the "Thumbs Up" on that Post. Fixed / Answered?

Hi! I have a Dell Dimension 8400 with a new motherboard that I purchased a couple of months ago. I just started having a new issue. My Dell desktop does not boot up into Windows XP. Last night I tried to boot up my computer but it doesn't boot up. My monitor shows "No SIgnal". When I hit the power button the green power light turns on. The Fan starts spinning and I can hear 6 long beeps. Nothing else happens. Could it be a bad hard drive or something else? Thanks

A:Motherboard POST beeps, 1 long 3 short

before you are sure that the motherboard has video problems insert the video card into the computer with the case open siting on it's side and don't put a screw in. then try to start your computer. Some motherboards and cases tend to want to pull the cards out. if it doesn't work with both cards then chances are your motherboard is the problem.

When cd is hooked to ide2, and hd to ide1, I get long beep at win98 blue screen. If cd is unhooked, no problems, system boots without cd. Hooked hd to ide2 and system booted up okay. Hooked cd to ide1 and system asked to boot with cd support. Seems the switching shows things are working, but when cd and hd are setup normally I get the beeps. Tried cables, power, and so on, also checked secondary ide in bios setup. Going to look for cable to hook both on ide1, until then I'll take suggestions. Thanks!

A:6 Long BIOS beeps after video card install

Hi Sarge1D, Go back into the bios and switch from UEFI mode to Legacy mode. There might be a slight incompatability between the Sapphire video card and the HP bios. Post your results. As side note:  I suggested in a post a while back that HP do exactly what you are experiencing to allow video cards that have a vbios function difference compared to the bios in the HP PC (beep 6 times as a warning but allow the PC to boot).
