Thread: Comp wont Boot-Up

  1. #1
    I just put my NF7-S V2.0 , my Athlon Xp Mobile 2500+ CPU, 1 GIG of Muskin Pc 3200 ram, Volcano 12 CPU Fan, 200 Gig H.D., and 400 Watt PSU together. I booted up the system and i hear a lot of beeps and they are going on and on with a break in between, i have tried reset cmos to no avail, also take into fact that i messed up my last mobo by getting wrong bios this is the replacement board they sent me back. Hope you guys can help me thanx a lot.

    Beep Code - Error
    1 Long 2 Short - Video Card Error - Either re-seat or replace video card
    Repeating beeps - Memory Error - Memory is either damaged or badly seated
    Repeating Hi/Low Beeps - Damaged or Overheating CPU
    Hi Frequency Beeps - Overheating CPU


    this is for award bios. let me see if that's the right bios lol.

    here's more info:

    Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards

    No beep at all - this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board


    One beep - board is working fine


    One long beep then machine shuts down - faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU


    1 short(Beep) System booting is normally


    2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error


    1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR


    1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error


    1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error


    1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error


    Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn't inserted correctly


    Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem


    A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages


    Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).


    get to work.
