Q: Continuous series of triple long beeps, no visual, fans spinning

Hi So I m helping my friend build his PC and we ve got everything assembled correctly at least we think we do Only thing that is missing is a dvd-drive which will arrive this week but we figured that it wouldn t be needed to only boot the system into BIOS When we pressed the power button for the first time the system did not boot and the motherboard Asrock p pro gave us a handy quot Dr Debug quot message We had no clue what it meant so we googled it We found a huge thread somewhere with someone saying that if you left only one stick of RAM in in the farthest most slot from the CPU it would boot just fine Only it didn t and instead gave us the debug code and still without visual input We only got error if we put in one or both sticks in the WHITE slots and the white slots only beeps, fans of visual, long no series Continuous triple spinning If we put any ram in any blue slot Continuous series of triple long beeps, no visual, fans spinning We just got the error again We tried removing the ram but that just gave us the missing ram POST triple beep code In short Dual-channeled RAM in the blue slots Dr Debug code Single stick of RAM in any blue slot Same story Single or both sticks in any or both white slots Dr Debug code No RAM Regular no RAM triple error beeps We have no idea what to do next and would appreciate some help Marty nbsp

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.)

How certain are you that the RAM is compatible with the motherboard? What brand and model RAM are you using?

I just changed my power supply and now I am receiving continous long beeping with a black screen.

My monitor has power as do all the fans. Everything else seems to work but the computer won't boot up and I got this long beeping going on.

Thanks for any sugesstions.

Hi all My desktop used to worked fine only a little bit slow-- MB SDRAM memory only Recently I decided to upgrade it to GB with a DDR one Samsung pin continuous beeps memory after DDR long 3 misinsertion unregistered unbuffered and low density continuous 3 long beeps after DDR memory misinsertion which is exactly OK for this computer Unfortunately I mistakenly inserted the DDR in the wrong way i e switched the back and the front The separated quot Keyed quot does not affect the insertion SDRAM should never have this problem because you can clearly see the match The first time I turned on the power there was one beep and no other signals to the monitor I turned off the power reinserted the memory and turned on the power again from then on I can hear continuous long beeps separated by a little big longer pause I then pulled out the new DDR inserted back the old SDRAM and I got the same long beeps Anyone who knows how to fix it please help Thank you Rosmet nbsp

Running XP pro Sp2, IE 7 & Mozilla 3.6 8 . Using Mozilla, facebook, farmvile game. Mozilla has the file plugin-container.exe, which taskman shows hogging resources. Out of the blue my pc started the beeping randomly while using mozilla. When I close, no beep since. All other apps are standard, usual and up to date. No new hardware or software. Recent past & some random scroll bar moving by it's self, have not found a fix. That happens on both browsers. Should I remove or disable the plugin-container.exe, & would it affect mozilla & farmville? I read where it suppose to stop the browser from crashing, but it doesn't. Also have virtually the same setup up on another pc routed with this one. Please give me some insight!
If this is the wrong forum, please direct me. Thank You, bikinibeegee

About a week ago I installed a new motherboard, graphics card, power supply, and more RAM. (I've got my profile on here updated with the parts list I believe?). I'm pretty certain I have downloaded all the up-to-date drivers, however, my fans are constantly running at full speed. I think the culprit may be the one over the CPU, but I'm not certain. The forums have been great help earlier with Windows 7 not booting properly.

What checks and ideas do y'all have for me?


A:Fans Always Spinning @ Max

As far as the case fans, how are they powered? If you have connected them to a molex connecter from the PSU, they are going to run full speed all the time. If you have them connected to the motherboard, most boards have settings in bios that enable you to somewhat control the fan speed and almost every motherboard has settings for the CPU fan. Normally you set a minimum CPU temp. The fan will spin slower until it nears that temp, then speed up. You may want to download a CPU temp monitoring program to keep watch on CPU temps. I use Core Temp. Then you will be able to see not only your CPU temps, but be able to regulate your CPU fan speed in bios better.

I messed around with my CPU yesterday on my broken PC and made progress somehow Right now when i press the start button on my computer the fans cpu power supply and the general fan all starts spinning rapidly Before that the fans would start to spin when i press it but always stops before running spinning Fans non-stop at full speed Normally when my PC starts up the fans will do this for about seconds and then reduce themselves to making almost no noise at all and letting the hard drive boot up At the moment it just keeps on spinning forever when i start it up and there is absolutely no visual on the monitor nor have i seen any other part of my computer start up I have checked the power supply and found no sign of burnt parts or leaked capacitors I am using an AMD athlon processor on this compaq presario sr nx system with GB of ram and W power supply Everything is as same as i bought it all original OEM parts Would this be a problem of my CPU or something else that s doing it nbsp

A:Fans spinning non-stop

Do you have a pc speaker hooked up for bios beep code errors? Have you reseated the ram and video card?

If you answered yes to all of the above you may have a dead mobo and/or cpu.

Hey. First off, I have a Aerocool case, with 4 fans in it. It feels like the fans are almost blowing no air, so I checked the bios. The big fan in the front (120mm) is only spinning around 1300, and the others only around 1500! How would I up the speed these fans are rotating? I believe this is partly causing my video card artifacting, due to the heat not being removed from the case (and the card too). Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb gets hot damned near instantly to where it can burn your fingers!!!

edit--> Added a picture... 90 degrees WTF!?!?!?! I wish all my fans were going at 4000 RPMs, but only my CPU fan is now, and it has NEVER gone this fast! Im considering maybe bad paste on the CPU Heatsink... My Raden 9800 pro 128mb is so hot that if I was to touch it, it would burn me. I have the case open right now....


A:Fans not spinning fast...

Check your BIOS settings to see if you can find any problems with fan speed /temperature triggering you can find there. You may be able to up the speed form the bios as well

When I start up my 23-q059na All-In-One, I get 3 long beeps then 4 short beeps, several times. It then appears to start up fine. I've tried looking at the diagnostics help but there doesn't appear to be any information on this error. I've tried to find the memory diagnostics option in the BIOS but there is no option for this. It is still under warranty - should I just take it back to the store?

So just finished my new build and everything is perfect and quiet but I did notice the corsair h80i fans are not spinning yet, temp idles around 40C and only gets up to 50c while using fire-strike extreme, I have not plugged in the USB header for corsair link as of yet because I have no more spare headers on the motherboard. is this normal?

A:Corsair H80i fans not spinning up

U did not tell any thing about u'r build like what MOBO and what headers are u plugged into, as far as the temps that is fine, although 30 for doing nothing would be better, but 40 is fine. No as to the normal, are u shure u are plugged in right, and secure?

I recently built my current PC, which is a 3.2ghz pentium 4, gigabyte GA-8IG100-G motherboard with 2gb of geil value ram (2.5, 3,3, 6) with an AGP x800 XT PE video card. Sometimes the computer will seemingly power down, monitor displays the 'no sigal' message, but the CPU and case fans continue spinning. Normally a simple reset will allow the computer to post, but once I had to reset the bios. I am using a Antec 450watt PSU, which the shop I got it from assured me was the best they have as it cost a fortune. This might be wrong Had a few problems with this PC, and am starting to get worried its going to die again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

edit: Max cpu temp is 35 degrees after pc has been on for a while, system isnt overclocked, all cpu, DIMM and AGP voltages are at default.

A:New(ish) computer turning itself off, fans still spinning

The computer store who sold you the PSU wasn't ripping you off. Antec has an excellent reputation for making PSUs (lol @metalX for his post below :haha: ), so that isn't likely the problem.

Let's try a couple of things to troubleshoot:

1. Right click on "my computer" then "manage" then "event viewer". Browse around in the three categories there looking for errors that are being reported to see if you can get any hints as to what is causing your crashes.

2. Stupid question maybe, but best not left unasked. Do you have the graphics card plugged into your power supply? (the 4 pin connector)

3. If neither of the two above produce anything, may as well run a diagnostic on your ram to rule that out. Takes a long time to run this program so be forewarned. Let it pass for 6 or 7 runs.

Let us know how it goes, and welcome to techspot!

Hi, I recently swapped graphics cards on my HP Pavilion 500-199 and it will not boot. While I swapped the graphics card with an XFX Radeon HD 6870, I also changed the PSU for a EVGA 500W PSU. When i press the power button, the fans would spin, but there would be no display on the monitor. I tried swapping back to the old graphics card and PSU, but nothing would appear on the screen. I reconnected all cables, tried clearing the cmos, and switched the display cable, but nothing would work. Can anyone help me please? Thanks.

I am fixing a HP desktop for a client and need some advice. The machine turns on and fans start, but instantly stops and system won't boot. They complained of an electrical smell coming from the case recently.

I booted with an external Graphics card, but that did no good. I guess my nest step will be to try different RAM and replace the PSU and see if that works. Hopefully it is not the motherboard, but I am assuming this could be a possibility. Is there anything else hardware related that could be causing the problem. Thanks

A:Fans are spinning but no display.Mobo faulty?

Hello Poli I know you have checked out the PSU but please do this in my little ditty and post back a pic of the PSU voltage rails
Using HW Info
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
See this for the rail voltage info,3061.html (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.

Use PART A: and as an option you can use a digital multimeter and test the volts on the 24 pin board plug see this for the colour codes (scroll to the bottom) use the black lead to any black cable the red lead to the different rails.

Also the board is relatively old too mate so don't be surprised if it has or is going south.

Had a relatives Nettle2-gl8e motherboard go bad. Replaced motherboard and powersupply. The problem is that when I plug in the PC, the fans(both) automatically spin up to high until I press the power button(Swapped out the power button to test). Then everything operates just fine until you Shut down the PC. You can't just hit the power button to turn the PC back on. You have to unplug and plug back in or throw the power switch on the power supply to turn it back on. When you do, the fans spin up high and it all starts over again.

Motherboard: MCP61PM-HM Rev 1.0B
BIOS is 12(Cannot find an upgrade that will install on this PC for some reason. VISTA keeps stating that my PC doesn't meet the requirements although it does.

Any suggestions for what might be wrong here? I'm stumped.

Hi ArtisanBlade, and welcome to TSG.

Do the status lights of a connected keyboard light up when the computer is first turned on?

Does the CPU LED on the Asus Z87-PRO motherboard have steady red glow? If so, there is a CPU problem preventing bootup. Check to make sure the CPU didn't get loose or had pin damage during the move.

Have you made sure all of the power connecters to the motherboard are secure?

Do you get any kind of POST beep code from connected speakers?

Well I know from experience that when I built my first computer I was given a bad mobo. I got all the same symptoms with mine, but at least my PC speaker said "Your CPU may have a problem" over and over. So I put in my buddies cpu (exactly the same one that worked) and got same message, so I took it back to store and they gave me a new one, and all has worked ever since.

That could be a possibility, especially if your mobo doesn't have a voice doctor to help you out.

That is about all I can think of atm, I hope it helps a little.......

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

First blush guess would suggest that the laptop believes a key is stuck. Incessant beeping and the fact the password fails points as a possibility.

Here's the situation:
If I restart my laptop, on the BIOS (i guess?),
it will ask me to choose OS, which there's only 1 option (Windows 7).
After that, the laptop will beep contionuously, short continuous beep to be exact.
Nothing weird happens, except the beeps.

And if I boot my laptop normally, it won't beep.

From what I've searched, I assumed that it's RAM's problem
But, it will only beep if I restart the laptop.

Can anyone please tell me what's the cause of it and the solution to it?

My pc has been working fine with no problems. Today I tried to hook up another monitor but I could only get it to display on one so I put my pc setup back to normal. Now every time I turn on my pc (with/without connections etc) I get two short beeps followed by 8 continuous and it will just not boot up. Any help guys would be much appreciated.

I've put together a new system using ECS945GCT-M/1333 mobo, Intel
E2140 CPU, and Seagate SATS hard drive. System will boot into BIOS
and will boot into DOS from a floppy. On these boots I get one beep,
which is normal (AMI BIOS).

If I try to boot from a CD, such as WinXP install CD, or Knoppix
Linux CD-based OS ..... it gets to the point where it accesses the
CD drive, but then no boot, and starts emitting continuous short beeps.

I've tried three different (ATAPI) CD drives, and two different cables.
Same problem. The BIOS recognizes and shows the floppy, CD and
hard drives, and the information shown on the drives is correct.

I know this is a cheap mobo, and that may be the problem ... but
interested in suggestions to diagnose and/or resolve.

A:No Boot CD/Continuous Short Beeps

Is it just continous beeps or can you make out a pattern???

ECS boards are known to be picky with ram modules thats why they have such a bad rep.
I suspect this could be the problem. As long as you get the right ones for your board you should be cool when I built my last system I used an ECS board with some old sticks of ram from my old build and I upgraded went with kensington I believe, works just fine.

Heres a link for the manual for your exact board.

Download it and look for the beep codes if you dont already have them.

Continuous beeping could be a number of things...

But I would be leaning towards a Power Supply Issue or a Memory Issue/Video Card Memory as well.

Hi guys, I have a pc just over a year old and now I'm getting 3 beeps and continuous reboots. Sometimes I get booted all the way up to the windows login screen and then the messages says windows is now shutting down and that's what happens. I tried pulling out both memory sticks and the computer stays on. The CPU and fan runs. I'm thinking maybe I have to change both sticks of ram but hoping I didn't have to. Any advice would be great.

A:[SOLVED] 3 Beeps, continuous reboot.

It's not advisable to remove components while the computer is powered up, but it also seems unusual that it should stay on after they are removed.

Have you ID'd those error beep codes as memory failure for your computer and what does the computer do when you boot up with the sticks removed ?

Hi first time on board looking for an answer I m fairly new to building computers I ve only did it twice now sooo I purchsed an ECS nforce - a board for the amd athlon Ok so I followed the the mb manual and made sure by checking and rechecking all connections that everything was connected in the proper place I ve got the processor seated properly ram graphics card radeon x xt pci express HD Optical drive PSU So I plug in the PSU pin adapter to display, all fans beeps but going No no my mb click the switch on the back and hit the reset button No display, no beeps but all fans going on the computer Well all the case leds psu fan case fans cpu fan graphics card fan all start up So I m thinking great I then plug my monitor and and by the No display, no beeps but all fans going way it does work but get absolutely no display signal at all My comp is not posting for some reason There are absolutely no beeps whatsoever So I left everything connected and went thru one by one changing first the cmos jumper Nothing Removed the ram no beeps whatsoever No display, no beeps but all fans going on power up removed the cpu again no beeps upon power up So I have no clue what the problem could be I ve checked to make sure the mb is not shorting out somewhere all risers are in place So does anyone know what my problem could be I m hoping it is this You know the atx pin v connector on the board well my PSU is a chiefmax W BUT the connector for it is spliced off the pin connector that comes from the psu and heres the kicker the atx v connector is all the way on the opposite side of the mb from the pin connector and the cable is not long enough to reach it because of it being spliced off the connector of the psu In other words I can t plug into the motherboards pin v connector on the other side because my psu pin v cable is not long enough I still get power to the mb without it being plugged in though with all fans and leds on So is this my problem Or do I have a faulty mb psu cpu or something else nbsp

A:No display, no beeps but all fans going

without plugging in the 12v atx cpu power you'll never know if the motherboard is any good. Powering it up without it connected can ruin the board.

I suggest getting an extender for the power or another PSU.

Extenders are cheap, but every extension has the chance for losing voltage or shorts.

At first, nothing would spin, but I'm genuis like that. A flip of the switch on the back to set it at 115 fixed that and I thought I was good to go again. But now, I get no beeps only fans. It is supposed to beep right? I've made sure the power is mounted to the board.

Totally screwed up.
Compaq you say? What about Customer Service? Or after those huge changes and replacements its not a option?
First - update the BIOS if its possible.
Sec. - if the battery of Mobo fails, then BIOS just cant remember anything and every time when start, it sets to defaults and don't serve correct to win(really very low possibility). Replace the battery
Third - probably you have some incompatibility between mobo and usb hub, or USB controller is damaged.
After you manage POS its not bad idea to put some hardware tests(memtest, hdd, svga, etc) to see that everything is fine and ran correctly.

Just get rid on all Compaq parts and replace with new one.

I removed it from the case (thinking the mobo was grounded). Same thing
Unplugged everything, except power button & HDD. Same thing.
Unplugged HDD (everything unplugged). Same thing.
Reseated everything, including power.
Took everything appart (everything, even my nicely tucked power / IDE cables). Same thing.
I checked the board for any traces I may have damaged and they are all OK.

CPUs are actually pretty hard to hurt unless you overclock/overvolt them or physically damage them while installing.

First of all, post ALL of your parts; no one knows what you are working on except you. In addition, post the exact pw supply you installed. Just because it is new does not mean it is working or that it is a quality unit. Newegg sells high end pw supplies and they also sell junk pw supplies.

If you are intending to replace the mb, cpu, and ram, I would also add a new case and hard drive. Both cases and hard drives have come a LONG way in the last 6yrs.

So I used another motherboard/cpu/ram combo I had and put the video on there and everything booted up fine. So now my guess is the problem is either the motherboard, or the CPU. Before we make any purchasing decisions, how can I be sure (without buying one) whether it's one or the other?

EDIT: I should also mention.. I don't mind giving him the cpu/mobo combo I have, but since he already has a hard drive I'm afraid it may cause a lot of issues with the drivers.

TT mate have you tried a memtest a you only have one stick?? might be as simple as that mate as you seem to have covered most other stuff RAM - Test with Memtest86+

You need to run it for at least 8 passes unless errors start straight away. Try the stick in different slots too- the testing is going to take you a long time unless like I said the errors start to come up fairly quickly.

If the fans don't start the 12 volt rail of the power supply could be bad.
And I suppose it could be that stupid little battery which, incidentally, HOLDS ALL THE INFORMATION in the BIOS. This is all I know. Sorry about the Caps.
Sure, just take the 2 wires off the on/off switch and splice them together, like stealing a car.

I installed the new processor I bought on eBay and now when I start the computer I get a series of beeps and no picture. "New" processor is a PIII 933mHz replacing a PIII 650mHz. The only difference beside the speed is the FSB on the old PIII is 100mHz and on the new one is 133mHz. Could this be causing my problems?

I have seen a million other thread titles that resemble the one I just made. All have alot of people giving a million suggetions to fix it but there is never a posted solution. I have had this Video problem once before already.

My video started to get flaky. Then shortly after my pc rebooted a couple times by itself....still fine though. Then days later .......nothing.......just black screen. I tested the RAM, video card, power supply, everything I could possibly think of....still nothing. I was entirely convinced that my motherboard or cpu was shot, or the both, just like most of the people in these forums. I happened to snag a motherboard and cpu from work. i tried just pluggin the HDD into the board and goin to town, but as i suspected, no go. i've never really had the opportunity to try the HDD swap before because...well, i dunno, just never needed to. I've always reinstalled windows to a new drive and then just grabbed my info from the old drive. Booting from the drive though....I've always assumed and heard that it can't be done because of a few reasons. None of which I know.
Anyway, wasn't really concerned about the install as i wanted a newer, bigger SATA drive anyway. After I installed the SATA drive I went to get the info from my old drive and I noticed a folder called "video" on the root of my drive. I can't touch it, can't rename it, can't do anything to it. I didn't put that folder there, but something did. I formatted the drive and use it strickly for storage now and have lived happily ever after....until now!

I now have the same issue at a computer at work. we are a small company and I know my way around computers fairly well so I'm the resident computer guy...making this my problem. My problem is I don't have another drive to install to to fix this.

Is this my only option? How can I get to a command prompt to see the drive with no video? Has anyone ran into this problem before or is my suspicious video folded a coincidence? I'm thinkin not. Also, just for the record, anyone wanna fill me in on the whole swappin a bootable HDD to a new MB? Can it be done?
Thanx in advance to anyone who takes the time to post to this thread. I need to fix this PC ASAP. I have a piece of crap toshiba laptop running in it's place. People aren't happy.

What's that a desktop PC? Try this and see what happens? Unplug the power and remove the battery and if you have a jumper for the CMOS remove to the clear setting. The place back the batter and put the jumper back in the correct position. Turn it on... Still nothing?

Check the pins on the monitor cable see if they're not bent? Also check the connector for wires coming out at the edge.

Test another montior to your system. If that doesn't work, try a different video card. Disable all onboard Video if using AGP or PCI Video. If all else fails and you say PWS is good, Monitor, Video, RAM, CPU and etc. Then could be the MoBO. Try replacing that...

As to your last question, can you explan it more.. What's your doing?

A:one long continuous beep during play

It really does sound like a overheating problem. Are you using the Asus Probe software to give you an idea of its base running temp vs the temp after heave game play? If it goes up 10+ degrees, that would be another hint of heat problems. If you have had the system running for awhile, pick up a can of the compressed air and carefully clean out the dust on the CPU fan blades and all other fans in the system. Clean off dust on the video card and every thing else at the same time. Dust acts like a fur blanket and raises temp on all surfaces. As it builds up over time, fan efficiency declines. Try moving the computer away from a wall that may raidate heat and make sure all the internal cables are bent to allow the best circulation of air from the front of the case to over the cpu fan and to any rear case fan and the power supply exhaust fan. Remember that space is needed behind the tower to help move the heat away. I have a similar system Asus A7A266/AMD 1.33ghz/512 mb ddr, Cd-rom, Cd-RW, 2 WD hard drives dual booting Win98se/W2kpro with Creative Audigy Platium, Modem, and Nic card. That fills my mid tower case and lately in Michigan the temps have been in the 90s often. Unfortunately that computer is near a South facing wall that for kicks i put a thermometer up next to it and was amazed to see an area temp of 111 degrees near it. I use a Thermaltake MiniOrb which works great until it gets hot like lately. Fortunately, i just take of on side cover and put a small fan blowing across me and my computer. The asus probe shows an average running temp of 49-52 degrees going up after an hour or so of online gamming to about 58-60 degrees. I dont see any system degrading. Just to help the system, try also making sure other non esential apps are off when playing. If you change the power supply, it in itself will probably produce a little more heat, but it is being blown out and not into the system however again make sure the area around the case is conducive to air flow. I upped my power supply from a 300 watt to a 400 watt and it seemed to help as far as system performance when reading info from the hd and using things like the CD-rom and heavy graphics. Cant prove it by tests, but it seems better( just got to at least think my money was not wasted).You did not mention of you are overclocking, but in hot weather, setting it back some would be a real good way to lower temps. I did have trouble with the 2 sticks of DDR memory when i first built the system and it would lockup after 15-30 minutes of heavy graphics use such as a game. You might want to remove 1 stick of memory at a time to see if one of them are sensitive heat build up and fails under thouse conditions. The long beep usually indicates some problem with a hardware device like memory or such.

Following instructions I opened and cleaned the interior electronics after it developed overheating problems that would result in it powering down. Following reassembly the computer will eventually restart but only after failing bootup at leastg two times. At initial startup or boot from hibernation the computer does not appear to reach boot source but emits a series of beeps, first 1 beep, then 3 beeps, another three beeps, and finally 1 beep. These are all about 1 second long and seperated by 1 second. Pressing and holding the start button again sometimes resuls in a full repeat of the above or the computer emits the series of 1single beats, 4 beats, one second long and one second seperation. Eventually pressing and holding he power button will evenually result in hearing the computer attempt to boot from the CD ROM (which is second on the list after the Internal HDD). Any help would be appreciated.

I think I must be cursing my PC booting 3 beeps long not - friend with computer problems as this is my second thread today I ve posted about a PC that will not boot the previous thread was about my other machine He gave me a call tonight saying his PC would not boot so I went to have a look at PC not booting - 3 long beeps it and try and help him determine what was going on He said the problem started when his computer crashed PC not booting - 3 long beeps suddenly on him so he turned it off When he tried to switch it back on again he got no output to the keyboard mouse or monitor So he switched the monitor cable from his graphics card slot to the onboard graphics slot still nothing he then tried removing one stick of RAM and still no go So he tried removing the keyboard which is a PS type keyboard and USB mouse and attached them all again Then suddenly the motherboard started beeping long beeps and keeps doing this until he turns it off Weve attempted to clear the CMOS using the jumper on the board and re-seated the battery and also switched the PS USB jumper which is PC not booting - 3 long beeps also on the board as with the motherboard manual instructions and also tried another RAM DIMM After doing this we booted up without anything attached except the power lead for the PSU and it powers on without beeping at all not even once We have even tried powering on without any ram attached and it still doesnt beep We are at a complete loss at what this could be The motherboard he has is a Asrock P VM Thanks in advance nbsp

Hi guys,
I need some help with a computer I got from a friend.When the computer is turned on, it gives 3 beeps which are about 2 seconds long each.
I tryed the net but it didn't help me to pin-point the problem. THere is no video showing up in the moniter but the moniter works fine (tested).
I tryed replacing the video card with a GForce 4 series(AGP) but the problem still remains.
THe specs are:

768MB RAM (512+128+128)
80GB HDD (40+40)
DVD RW drive + CD RW drive
Intel Desktop Board D845WN + Intel Pentium 4 processor
320W TurboSupply Power supply
GForce 4 series (AGP)

Any help is appreciated !_!
Thank You!

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

A:4 short beeps, 2 long

Hi One of my pc s recently acted up It was working fine for couple of years without problem and then I stopped using it for a few months now when I go back to it the motherboard just beeps continuously long beep According to the manual a continuous long beep might be due to bad ram but when I took out both ram sticks it had a beep but ok boots to long continuous Solved: windows system different kind of continuous beep I replaced the ram with a different stick and it made the continuous beep sound like the other ram The motherboard is gigabyte GA- I PL-G dual core cpu Bios is award When I had the hard drive plugged in even tho it made the loud continuous beep it booted to windows win k pro ok except that the graphics looks as if the video driver has not yet been installed I didnt want to potentially damage it so i turned off and I took out every component except for just the video card and ram What should I do next swap psu I have an antec true power Also what should the beep sound like if i were to take out the video card Please help Thank you nbsp

A:Solved: system continuous long beep but boots to windows ok

ok, i figured it out! it's kind of a duh thing! The fan in the front of the case, instead of being connected to the connector on the mobo (system fan), was connected to the normal molex connector because it didnt have the right end. And in the BIOS, the setting was to monitor the system fan; since there's no fan connected there, it was beeping to alarm me about it; disabling that works hahahah
