Thread: Award Bios Beep Codes

  1. #1
    1 short beep - System booting sucessfully.
    2 short beeps - CMOS setting error.
    1 long - 1 short beeps - Memory Error.
    1 long - 2 short beeps - VGA card or monitor connect problem
    1 long - 3 short beeps - Keyboard Error
    1 long - 9 short beeps - ROM Error
    Long continuous beep - Memory not installed correctly.
    Short continuous beep - Power supply has problem.

    = Trouble Shooting =
    Check the power supply - is it supplying power to the motherboard?

    Next, make sure all components and properly installed/fixed.
    Usual suspects: CPU, BIOS chip, memory chips, etc.

    Next, check your components and user's manual: are all jumpers set
    correctly?

    Remove all cards except the video adapter to make sure no other cards
    are causing the problem.

    If this works, try to identify the card causing the problem.

    If none of the above works, contact your dealer or FIC support.

    Try reseating the memory (take it off and install it again).
    If the error still occurs, replace the memory with known good chips.

    If you hear fatal beeps, the motherboard needs repair/servicing.

    If the error persists, check parts of the system relating to the
    keyboard, e.g. try another keyboard, check to see if the system has a
    keyboard fuse.
    Try reseating the keyboard controller chip.
    If the error still occurs, replace the keyboard chip.

    Memory error on the video adapter.
    Replace the video card or the memory on the video card.

    Faulty BIOS chip.
    Consult a distributor of Flash EPROM chips that can be used with the
    motherboard.
