3 beeps at a time.

Post by Sir $wat on Mon 07 Feb 2011, 9:42 am

Hi, My system has three beeps at a time. like beep, beep, beep..... a pause and it continues with beep, beep, beep.... and so on.

As a result, there is no signal to the monitor.

I changed the ram and placed another one, and the beeping was gone.... however, there is still no signal to the monitor. Plz note, that with the good ram, i do not hear any beeps. There should be a beep at post.

Is the mobo gone?

Hi,

When did you hear those beeps (e.g.when the pc is starting up)?
When did the problem start? Is it recently or it has been going on and on from the moment you bought the pc?

there is still no signal to the monitor.
What do you mean by this? Your monitor is black and can't turn on or you can't see the ram on the monitor?

the monitor lights go to the orange colour.

when the system starts, u usually hear a beep, howver, instead of the one beep, i am getting three at a time, then a pause and then 3 more and so on.

problem has started recently.

Each beep sound define something according to Mother board manual. According to documentations out there 3 long beep sound mostly refer to Keyboard. http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml again it might be different for Motherboard.It might be a good idea to check you motherboard manual or the documentation on Website.
