No beep at post with new Asus P4P800?

Question: No beep at post with new Asus P4P800?

Internal speaker is connected properly according to the manual...and the speaker worked with my old mobo...

Asus "no help" so far. Should I worry about this? The reason I ask is, "will I miss a critical system warning if the internal speaker does not work"?

The retailer said it does not work because I disabled onboard sound...sounded like a load of crap to me!

Preferred Solution: No beep at post with new Asus P4P800?

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.)

Hey guys.

I've had this rig (with an ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe motherboard) running perfectly for a long time, when suddenly, yesterday, the graphics went from the scenery in the Black Temple (World of Warcraft) to diagonal red, blue and green stripes across the screen, followed by a lockup and the sound repeating the same 1-second loop. Naturally I switched off the power and waited a little -- tried to boot, no luck whatsoever. There was absolutely no stability issues prior to the crash, graphical or otherwise.

The fans start spinning, the drives start spinning (including the DVD drive), the LED on the motherboard glows, everything seems to work perfectly, yet there is no display, no mouse or keyboard (albeit USB, but they are usually probed during the first BIOS screen anyway), and nothing suggests that it gets past the booting process, e.g. drive noise from loading Windows, or even POST.

The nature of the sudden crash and the funky monitor colors lead me to believe it was a problem with the graphics card, an Nvidia Geforce Ti-4600. However, reseating that, completely disconnecting, or even replacing it with an FX-5200 that I am positive is functioning, didn't remedy anything. The computer still does not seem to get through POST, does not output any error beeps, and I'm feeling a little helpless. Even trying to boot without any graphics or RAM didn't yield any error beeps. Surely, that'd yield error beeps.

I'm fearing it might be a problem with ... Read more

hey guys, have a new one for yall.

I have a custom pc: Asus p4p800-e deluxe mobo, 2.8 ghz intel cpu, 1 gb kingston ram, evga 7600gs agp card, audigy 2 zs sound card cooled with zalman reserator 1+ I have had this system for almost 5 years now and I have never overclocked this system before.

i have two problems actually:

1) my sound card i think is dead or dying on me. I reverted to the onboard audio currently. i have to play around with the analog/speaker cable going into the card for it to send the sound to my speakers. this also has to do with the speaker wire but, when i move around the sound cable in its slot on the sound card, the pc freezes. if i unplug it and plug it back in it still freezes? anything on this?

2) this freezing thing all started one day i was playing RCT3. randomly the pc would hang while playing the game. so i had to hard reboot every time this happened. this did not happen when the cpu was not under intense usage ie gaming. then i noticed that the pc would hang/freeze coming out of standby mode, which i have never experienced before. I turn the pc on from standby mode, i see the welcome screen and it would freeze or it would make it to the desktop pic and would freeze then, it does not fully load the desktop before it freezes.

next problem was upon start up or reboot, the monitor would not detect a video signal at all. I tried playing around with the video card, reseating it, wiggling it, using different monitors, playing with the vga c... Read more

Let's look at minidumps for more information

Thanks for providing your system specs, including OS and Service Pack (SP)...
( Asus etc, xp, sp3))

Let's look at "minidumps" and/or "events" for more information

Attach three or four of your most recent minidump files to your next post,
Let's see what kind of information is there.

If you do not know how to attach a file, see this thread

If you do not know about minidumps, they are located in their own subfolder ("minidump") of your Windows folder.
If you want to learn more about Minidumps and how to interpret them... Start here...

I am suggesting that you post the minidump files so that someone with a little experience can review them, and find some diagnostic clues... This may or may not provide the help we need, depending on whether Windows was able to create the files before abruptly closing on you.

Another diagnostic approach is through event viewer... See

Once we have some more information, we may want to have this thread re-titled to be more descriptive.

Have you absolutely ruled out the possibility of Virus or other Malware?

This has evolved from a previous thread but I believe, since that was more general and largely explained, that it would only complicate the issue to refer to it.Whilst I have downloaded the manual for the P4P800-SE I cannot find reference to error codes. Googling ?ASUS error codes? has not yielded any specific help either yet.I had one P4P800 giving blinking only without booting. Fitting new graphics card then yielded the 1 123456 beep. The first 1 is short but separate from the following which are short and in quick succession (maybe 7?). I fitted a new CPU and the board worked OK. It went right through start including showing all 3GB RAM and then stopped at instruction to fit bootable device, which was quite reasonable as no HDD was connected.On screwing board into case the same beep error code returned. Taking out the memory changed the error code to three long beeps. Refitting memory and taking away graphics card made no difference to the 1 123456 beep code. Changing graphics card to another also known to be working made no difference.I have several 478 CPUs, some costing as little as 1p plus postage but I am looking for suggestions before possibly spoiling any.My question therefore is: is it possible that something is blowing the CPU and restarting the unknown beep signal? I have checked alternative power supply (using the one connected when out of the case and working correctly) with the same beep code resulting.I believe the initial problem was caused by CPU failur...

Answer:Error beeps for Asus P4P800-F (or any P4P800?

Googling your mother board (Asus) and expecting the BIOS to be found is not the correct thing to do. You need to Google the BIOS type (I think yours is AMI) which you can see on the BIOS screen which you have had acess to. So to find out beep codes for that you should Google "AMI beep codes" which would produce several hits including click hereTo answer your questions:1. Each BIOS has its own set of codes. The BIOS is used by the manufacturer of the motherboard therefore you can find the same BIOS on different manufactures boards.2. Many things can damage A CPU. Most modern CPUs have over temperature protection but a faulty PSU could cause problems.3. You could have a faulty PSU, short circuit, bad connection, faulty graphics board or any of a number of other problems. I should start by ensuring the mother board achieves BIOS boot in the case with nothing else connected to start with.

Ok guys one day I got home and I tried turning on my pc, it started normally, usual sounds like the fans running ect. (no beep thought) and it sounds like it is booting all the way, but my monitor stays in standby mode saying "No signal". so I tried logging in (with my screen off, by pressing down on the keyboard arrows and typing my password followed by pressing enter, and I could hear windows logging in (the windows log in tune/sound)

Now I tested the monitor on another pc, it works fine. I bought a new graphics card and that didn't make a difference (The old card was a nvidia gforce 8600 gt, and my new card is an Asus ENGTX460 TOP direct Cu)
I tried taking out Ram and switching slots (2 sticks of 1 gig ram)
still didn't work, so confusing.

I have a P5N-e sli asus motherboard with an intel core2duo 2.8ghz prossessor, 2 sata hard drives and no on board display.

P.S. please go easy I'm not an expert at fixing things.


Answer:Asus P5N-E SLI, no beep, no post and monitor stays in standby

Unlike your old card, the 8600GT, the GTX 460 requires two 6 pin PCI-E power connectors from the PSU (power supply unit). Did you connect them? Does your PSU even have two 6 pin PCI-E connectors?

Need help here. I have already read through several other threads of people with the same problem, though none of them seem to have exactly the same symptoms. The threads I read are here:

My Problem:
I am building a new computer. Basic components are:
Asus P5LD2 Deluxe Motherboard
Intel Pentium D Processor 950, 3.4GHz, LGA775 Pkg, 2x2 L2 Cache, UP only
ATI Radeon X 1600 Pro

Just like the other people in those threads, I can turn on the power to my computer, all the interior fans come on, the LED on the motherboard is glowing green, seems to be power everywhere there needs to be.

Except the computer won't post. The monitor stays black, and there are no bios beeps. I can't tell if the computer is loading anything or not. It just sits there like a giant rock. I can turn the power on and off with the main tower switch, though the reset doesn't seem to be doing anything. I figure that's nothing to worry about, since if the computer isn't posting anything, there is nothing to interupt.

My problem seems to differ slightly from the other people in that, just to make sure my speakers were working, I took the RAM out and rebooted. Except I still didn't get any bios beeps telling me there was a hardward problem. That leads me to suspect there is a problem w... Read more

Answer:Asus P5LD2 Deluxe mobo won't post or bios beep

I believe that the X1600 pro only needs the power connection for the AGP version. Yours is a PCIe-16x version so the power connection (I believe) is not needed. If it is needed, there would be a 4pin molex jack on the top right side of the card (opposite from the side that mounts to your case).

As for what bios supports your CPU, it depends on which revision your CPU is. Revision B1 is supported by bios version 0415 or newer. But revision C1 was not supported until bios version 0603.

I don't understand the bios number you have provided enough to tell if it means your board has been updated, perhaps someone else can help out with that (I am at work now). If your CPU is the C1 revision, then an out of date bios would explain things.

By the way, are you sure your board is not shorting out on the case? (You used the riser pins)?

Also, what make is your PSU and how many watts is it rated at?

What speed/make ram are you using?

Hi everyone. I been looking all over the place, and I can't seem to figure out why AGP is disabled on my comp.

I have the following hardware:

ASUS P4P800 SE motherboard
Intel 3.0 ghz northwood processor
eVGA GeForce 6800 AGP
512 MB PC3200 RAM
Antec 480 Watt PSU

3D Benchmark 03 and 05 both run like a** on my comp ( I literally get like 300 in '05, which I personally find to be too low). Everest, AIDA, and WCPUID all confirm that AGP is disabled, and the video card is present in the list of PCI devices. Something is jacked up, and any help would be enormously appreciated.

Answer:ASUS P4P800 SE and AGP

AGP is a physical slot type. If you have an AGP card and you're seeing stuff in windows then theAGP slot is working.

If you have a PCI card and you're trying to get it to show as AGP, well, that isn't possible. It sounds like you have a PCI card though. Which means the solution is buy an AGP card if you want to use an AGP slot.

Just put together a new PC with an ASUS P4P800-E-Deluxe, WD 250MB 100mbs HDD, ATI Radeon 9600 SE 128MB, 512 MB DDR RAM, and a CD-RW drive. WinXP Pro OS. Pretty basic setup. When I boot up from a cold start I get an error "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key". If i press a key with a Win XP CD or Startup floppy in the drive it does nothing, even with the BIOS set up to boot from the CD/Floppy or vice versa, and just reverts back to the same error. If I cold start the machine and enter the BIOS, the HD does not show up initiallywith auto detect enabled, but if I open up the auto detect line in the BIOS it shows up. I reboot from there and the machine boots just ine. If I just hit CNTL/ALT/DEL from the boot media error it boots just fine and works 4.0. I have chatted with ASUS on this one and from reading alot of tech forums it seems like a pretty common issue with ASUS MOBOs. I have reseated the cables, cleared the CMOS, changed the CMOS battery(thinking that maybe the CMOS is dumping-ASUS told me to do this as well) to no avail. I have tried putting the HDD on the secondary IDE port to no avail. ASUS seems to be sending me in circles on this one. Is it a 100/133 compatibility issue.

I recently purchased this mobo and had it installed. Works great except for the ridiculously loud fan attached to it. I tried unplugging it and just leaving the other 3 in my rig running, but it crapped out after 20 min and restarted my comp. I hooked it back up and left it, not wanting to mess up my new mobo. It's been a few weeks now and frankly it's driving me batty. I can hear it in my bedroom upstairs for crying out loud. Anyone know what I can do about this?

Answer:ASUS P4P800 SE - loud fan

If the fan attached to the motherboard is above the CPU, do yourself a favor and leave it plugged in.

If it is the one that needs replacing, check out Search for CPU fan. Each description includes the noise level of the fan.

Their case fans also have the noise level posted.

after the change it boot up and everything seemed to start, BUT the monitorīs light didnīt change (yellow to green) like if the computer was turned off or there was no video card. then if I try to turn off the machine, it doesnīt, the cpu fan is working, the HDs are working but the machine can only be turned off if I turn off the no break itself. itīs like it is halted and the monitor is black and didnīt initialize as said above.

This subject arises out of my faulty mobo thread. Since we seem to have narrowed the problem to the CPU it seems pointless to wade through all the other discussion.Basically I could not get any display with a mobo contained in a case I bought. Fair enough - I bought only the case. Since PSU, RAM (recommended by and bought from Crucial), new and CPU bought from reliable guy on eBay (he wanted 2.8 MHz and got 1.8MHz by mistake so CPU unused). Hence I blamed mobo and replaced it with a P4P800-SE which apparently has the same requirements. However the problem persisted - no POST no display.On doing some research I am wondering if CPU or CPU/RAM combination is causing the problem.In "The Complete PC Upgrade Handbook 2009" page 33 it states:"Another compatibility issue that affects only Intel processors is the Front Side Bus (FSB)speed. ... different Intel processors require different FSB speeds. ... Your motherboard will support only certain FSB speeds."I can find no mention in the ASUS manual which appears to suggest (to me) that any P4 478 would work.The P4P800-X supports PC 3200, 2700 and 2100 and the FSB is 800MHz. I believe the processor I bought is 400MHz. It was advertised as 1.8GHz 256/400/1.75v.In the section on memory the manual states:"CPU FSB DDR DIMM Type Memory Frequency800 MHz PC3200/PC2700/PC2100 400/320*/266 MHz533 MHz PC2700/PC2100 333/266 MHz400 MHz PC2100 266 MHz*When using 800 MHz FSB CPU, PC2700 DDR DIMMs run only at 320MHz"I have 2 x 1GB RAM fitted in the bl...

Answer:SATA HDD problems with an ASUS P4P800-E


Why would you need 2 DVD-Writers ?
Sata boards only have 2 connections.1 for a HD and recently SATA DVD-RW's
This would be obvious in the Motherboard manual or asus website descriptions of this mbd.
But installing Sata Raid drivers is very tricky.It requires a Raid driver
floppy disk.
The files are probably on the mbd cd.and instructions.
Somewhere in the process you use F6 to activate the floppy drivers.
So read the manual and cd contents for more.
Best i can do.

I have a 37gb raptor sata hooked to my Asus P4P800 and I'm trying to figure out how to also attach my Seagate 80gb sata. I want to use the Seagate as a backup and if I can improve performance, how would I do this. Does it have to be in a RAID configuration? I don't want to lose the data already on the Raptor. Any help is appreciated.

Answer:Different Sata drives in Asus p4p800

If this is your board
then you should be able to plug the second drive into the other sata hotplug and it will be seen as a slave drive since the boot files are already on the current drive and the hard part is over, you have the raid drivers already set because the raptor is booting XP. If you want to improve performance install just XP on the raptor, and make a partition on the 80 gig and make a program files folder and custom install all your programs to the other drive so the os runs independant of the programs you run.

im kinda new to tech forums. yet i have a good fealing ill be posting alot soon .

Ne way back to the point. i have recently upgraded my ram to 768mb ddr ram and am about to go to another 1024mb ram and thats gonna be 1700+ of ram (cant be bothered working it out) and i know thats hefty. one of my mates reckons that only some motherboards can handle that sort of thing. but hes not sure about mine. can anyone here inform me on if the Asus P4P800 SE Ai Series Motherboard. can handle 1792mb of RAM

(i have 4 RAM Slots and 2 are being used, 1 512mb and 1 256mb.. im going to get a 1024mb ram card and slap it in.)

Answer:Asus P4P800 SE Ai Series Motherboard.

i think for that particular board it should handle maybe a little over 2 gig, if not just plain 2, if anyone can provide chev with a more accurate answer, i invite you to, but most newer boards can usually handle 2gb, so in answer to your question you should theoretically be able to put that memory in your pc without hassle, but the strange amount of ram may upset it, if you start getting funny errors, just remove the smaller stick of the 3, you will be fine. trial and error. if you find that your machine plays up, try swapping the places of the ram, or remove a stick and see if it errors again, keep trying combinations till it stops beeping/freezing/whatever.

I recently bought a 3.4 GHz processor, Prescott core, Socket 478, 1 MB L2 cache, with 800 MHz FSB, to install in my Asus P4P800 motherboard. According to Asus's website, this should be completely compatible from BIOS version 1017 and up. I flashed version 1019 a few minutes ago, so there should be no problems.

However, the BIOS is only showing it as a 2.8 GHz processor. Under "type" it displays Intel (R) Pentium (R) 4 CPU 3.40 GHz, but under "speed" it displays 2800 MHz. I can't find any settings to change that would fix the problem.

Anybody have any ideas?

My MoBo has a feature that tries to do a stable over clocking of 5, 10, 20 and 30% OC's. It works on 5 and 10% but not 20 or 30% I can manually set the FSB to 147 w/ AGP/PCI set slightly increased and all volts stock settings. Runs GREAT, I get 2.646GHz out of it. I was wondering if anyone has tried getting more than that out of it. Heatsink and Fan are Retail stock with the P4. My Case has 8 case fans, and my video card has a stock sink and fan. I put my CPU on a 100% load for over 2 hours and never went over 40C, using ASUS probe my vcore was 1.584V.

But when I looked at the CPU info in the ASUS Probe it said current speed 2.4GHz, max speed 3.6GHz. Can I get this bad boy higher??? My Mobo can do FSB of 100 to 400MHz, but my CPU is locked at 18 multiplier. Is there a way to unlock a P4 2.4?

Hey everyone,

Im currently using a P4P800 ASUS motherboard with a intel 2.8 chip.
Ive been using a Radeon 9000 for a long time and I finally came up with the money and bought a HIS Radeon 9800 PRO Excalibur.

There is no image on the screen, just blank. The card fan and everything else works, and I have almost given up on things to do with this. Does anyone have any idea what it could be?

I found out even the keyboard will not turn on. so the computer is actually stuck at startup, no loading screen, nothing. not the monitor.

I have a customer who needs 4GB of RAM in his Asus P4P800-MX in order to use Autocad for his business. I installed two 1 GB sticks that worked fine, then bought another 2 1GB pc2100 that didn't even boot, then another two with Samsung chips running PC3200 and they also didn't work. I have not had much luck finding a list of tested to work sticks for this motherboard. I do possess one 1GB stick with Samsung 450 K4H510838B-TCC4 chips on it that works fine but can't seem to find another stick just like this in order to maintain dual channel memory. Does anyone have ideas where or how I might find a 1GB stick with Samsung 450 K4H510838B-TCC4 chips?
Or a pair of 1GB sticks that would work?



Answer:What specifc DDR works in Asus P4P800-MX?

What is the frequency of the installed sticks? To run in dual-channel mode, the sticks have to be the same size and frequency.
Your motherboard is your best resource on the subject; it will tell you exactly which sizes and speeds you can use.

Also, when inserting the sticks, of course be sure to insert them so the lock snap into place on their own. Clearing CMOS also helps when the machine refuses to boot.

I'm not certain about having two dual-channels, but I do know sticks in slot 1&3 must be identical, as well as in slot 2&4. To be safe, I would review the mobo's manual to make sure it was possible, then I would get 4 1GB sticks of all the same size and density, insert them as described above, clear CMOS, and attempt to boot.

I'm currently reading the manual and I'm seeing some advanced options in the BIOS that I don't understand.

CPU External Frequency(Mhz) - this is the option I upped to 210 to get the overclock
DRAM Frequency- options are 266mhz 333 mhz 400 mhz and Auto. It says it allows you to set the DDR operating frequency
AGP/PCI Frequency- it says it allows you to adjust to higher AGP/PCI frequency for better OC'ing. options are 66.66/33.33 72.73/36.36 and 80.00/40.00
AGP VDDQ voltage- options are 1.80v 1.70v 1.60v and 1.50v
DRAM Idle Timer- options are infinite 0T 8T 16T 64T and Auto
DRAM Refresh Mode- options are Auto 15.6 uSec 7.8 uSec 64 uSec and 64T

There are also some other ones like vcore and ram voltage but I understand those.

Hi everyone, this is my first time here at Tech Spot and I was hoping to gather some information regarding my Asus P4P800 Deluxe motherboard that I'm told has now deceased. At present I'd like to keep costs down so I was considering either purchasing a secondhand replacement (P4P800 Deluxe or P4P800SE) However I have also discovered a new cheap motherboard on the market, the ASRock P4i65G with socket 478 that would save me a lot of money on new RAM & a new CPU. Is anyone out there familiar with that mainboard??? The Asus board was fantastic for recording using Cubase SX so I can't imagine the ASRock board will be anywhere near it. But who am I to know. Any advice regarding this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Asus P4P800 Deluxe Replacement Skt 478

These days it can be hard to even find a socket 478 motherboard. I've used from the least to the most expensive boards, and I would just get a working 478 and consider myself lucky. I wouldn't get a used one unless you know the previous owner. Asus is a good maker. I have used ASRock. They are fine. Their quality is below ASUS somewhat but I doubt that you will notice. I'm sure you're not doing things like overclocking or other mainboard based tweaks. If you get a new ASRock and don't overheat it and use it normally and maintain it, there is no reason that it should not work for years. Saving the monet on the cpu and the ram is a good idea.

if i let it work it just freezes and stops at that step (asus mobo with option=del for bios)

i tried to press F8 but it wont go further... still stops there

one more thing - when i hit F8 the asus mobo picture goes crazy.. i mean its like when u play a game with a kinda-dead graphic card... when the colors go crazy\random...

i just dunno what to do

Answer:Help: ASUS P4P800 ... missing sound driver

Use this url - enter motherboard, 478, P4P800 (provided you have that basic model) and then click audio and select the RIGHT drivers file and download it.

This is how I recommend you get set up:

To install drivers from the internet:

go into Windows Explorer, left click on Desktop, then File, then New and then Folder - name the folder XXXDrivers (where XXX = type, eg, AudioDrivers)

go to the site for your driver, find the RIGHT one for your mobo and OS,(click on the nearest site to you if appropriate) and then download button - when asked where to 'save' the download specify your desktop folder XXXDrivers and wait until the download is complete.

Once it is done, clear your screen and click on the desktop folder and then on the file inside - if it is a zip or rar file it will need to be unzipped or unpacked - make sure if you are asked to specify where to unzip/unpack to tell it to do so to the XXXDrivers folder.

Once you are done that, uninstall the old drivers for the device and then select the device and specify update drivers and direct the search to the folder you made (don't let Windows do it).

Hello Everyone,

I hope some of you can help me with the problem below.

My PC is configured with:

ASUS P4P800 deluxe, intel 2.4/
one S-ATA HD [ BIOS shows it as 3rd Master]
one P-ATA HD (connect to MB via mobile rack, use as data storeage, not bootable) [BIOS shows it as Primary Master]

The problem is that everytime I re-insert the P-ATA HD into the system, The BIOS automatically assumes it is the
primary drive, and try to boot with it.

Of course, it fails, the only way to fix this is to go to BIOS and change the "Boot Device Priority" to show the S-ATA is
the first choice.

However, the BIOS doesn't keep this setting. The problem repeats everytime the rack mount drive is removed and re-installed back to the system.

The problem goes away as long as the rackmount drive stays connect to the system?

Most of the setting in the BIOS are ASUS default setting.

Any idea why this happen?

I've recently built myself another computer and have a problem getting the AGP to work.
I was originally using the ATI Catalyst drivers and I could not get the AGP to work. I would go into their smartgear thing, select 2X/4X/8X (I tried them all) and let it restart my computer to test. Every time I rebooted I got the same results... it just selected AGP off.
I have now downloaded the Omega 3rd party drivers. The card, in my opinion, works better now than with the other ATI drivers; however, I still cannot get the AGP to stick.
I can go in through SmartGart using the shortcut Omega drivers uses and try to select AGP read/write On and it does not work. I can go in through advanced properties (in the display properties) and go to the SmartGart tab and try there. It has "Fast Write" grayed out and turned off. Also, it allows me to only select 4X/8X AGP. It is currently set to off. If I try to slide it over to either 4X or 8X AGP it asks if I want to restart and test it, I say okay and when it restarts it's once again turned off.

I don't understand what the problem could be. My computer must be sickyl. :dead:

Answer:Asus P4P800/Radeon 9600 Pro AGP problems

What is happening, is that AGP Texture Acceleration is not available, due to the Smartgart drivers not being properly installed. I have had this problem with my machine before and the solution is to thoroughly remove the drivers and reinstall them.

Going to add/remove software (programs in my control panel) does not help since there is no option to create a boot disk there. I can create a boot disk by right clicking on my A drive and selecting format but Im thinking that's not the way to go since it wasnt mentioned in the instructions.

Answer:Updating Bios - Asus P4P800-e Deluxe

First things first, do you need to update your BIOS. When such a thing goes wrong, you have 90% chances of finding yourself with a dead or completely useless motherboard.

In this kind of situation, the motto "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" really applies.

If you still want to go ahead, get the Windows 98 bootdisk HERE. Get the ASUS flashing utility & the new BIOS file (both can be downloaded HERE).

Extract the BIOS file & the flashing utility on a CD-RW, create the bootdisk & boot on it with CD-Rom support. Once booted, change the working directory to the CD-Rom & launch BIOS updating utility (remember the backup the original BIOS).

Once again, you are doing this update at your own risk. If the BIOS flash goes wrong, you will not get a RMA for your board as it is your fault that it got damaged.

have opted to visit the asus website itself and downloaded them myself to my pc. I then used the update program and pointed it towards my file. It worked fine when I did it this way.

As for the spinning ERROR signs in Counter Strike, got exactly the same myself and I'm using the latest official drivers for everything including mobo n videocard. Anyone know if they're meant to be there cos got no problems when I run the game??!

Hi guys,

I have an Asus Z97A Motherboard/GTX 1080/24GB DDR3Gskill/ 500 GB SSD + 1to HDD and recently when i boot my PC i hear 1 long beep then quickly after 3 short beep.. I've searched in Asus website about the meaning of these beep and it's written that it's a Video card faulty..

But well just after these beep my pc is booting well ! and video card working well too, i've no problem playing games.

The strange thing also is that it's making these beep like 1 time every 2 or 3 days as i shut down my pc every night and when i'm going to work.

Do you have an idea of what i can do ??

EDIT : And by the way here's what i tried,

-Disable integrated graphic
-Clear CMOS
-Update Nvidia driver

Answer:1 Long beep + 3 short beep Asus motherboard

This may be your GPU video card starting to fail.

My current specs...

CPU: P4 2.6c
MOBO: ASUS P4P800 Deluxe
RAM: OCZ 512MB [2x256] Dual Channel Kit ... OCZ400512ELDC-K [rated @ 2-2-3-6] [slots 1 and 3] [PC3200 DDR400]
HDD1: MAXTOR S-ATA 120GB w/8MB Cache
HDD2: MAXTOR S-ATA 300GB w/16MB Cache

I was thinking of adding the OCZ 1024MB [2x512] Dual Channel Kit ... OCZ4001024ELDC-K [rated @ 2-2-3-6] [slots 2 and 4] [PC3200 DDR400].

Some told me it would be ok to do so since all modules are same performance/type. While others, including OCZ themselves, recommended not to, mainly due to some stability issues resulting from having more than 2 high performance modules installed.

I may end up trying all four slots as stated above and see how it goes, if there is problems would probably just take out the original 512 kit and try to sell it leaving me with just the 1024 kit.

Would like some input from the experts here and hopefully learn what my best options are in terms of improving performance.


p.s. No plans for overclocking as of yet, stock cooling all around

I restored a previous fully operational xp-sp2 on my pc. When Windows opens up, it cannot find a driver for the ethernet controller.

On the Asus site, I found no specific driver available (865pe chipset). On the Intel site there is a long list of Ethernet Controllers but I don't know which one I should select.

Everest appeared to point to a 3com 3c940 Ethernet controller. I got the driver for it and applied it. The request for an Ethernet Controller disappeared but I still have no connection to my ADSL router.

My laptop here is a Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series. 
The laptop itself works perfectly fine, I am able to get into windows (which I installed myself, it originally came with Ubuntu). 
Occasionally though, it will do a BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE (repeats).
This happens on boot and sometimes when I am using it. Sometimes it turns off suddenly when I am shifting the computer around. It's extremely loud.

What is causing this? The sound seems to be coming from around the area the Memory banks are under the laptop, but nothing seems to suggest that anything is wrong.
I took a suggestion and used FN+Power to do Hardware Diagnostics which said nothing is wrong.

What else can I try?


Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 - 3000 series - Beep Beep Beep Pause Beep Beep Beep

I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check if the beep pattern repeats.

Switch off the computer.
Disconnect the AC adapter from the system.
Remove the battery from the computer.
Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
Then connect back all the peripherals and check if the beep pattern repeats and reply us with the beep count.

If you still receive 3 Beeps on the system then it indicates System board failure.. You will have to replace it on the laptop.
Please let me know the findings.

Answer:ASUS P4P800-E DLX and Gigabit LAN "Port A is down" problem

Welcome to TechSpot

I am not familiar with your specific equipment, but against the instructions, quite often you need a straight cable rather than a patch/crossover cable (10/100 MBs).

But for 1000-BaseT you will need a Cat-6 cable for it to work. They use more internal wires.

Hello.I have been reading with interest some of the causes of a PC to fail to boot into windows, when the usual single POST BEEP is missing.I have this problem, but what i cannot understand is why switching off the PC by holding in the silver button for a few seconds, then switching off the rocker switch on the back of the PC, leaving for a few seconds, and switching back on cures the problem every time - i.e the computer then boots into windows succesfully.I am not sure whether to just keep performing this action or to look at the cause( maybe a memory problem ).

Hey guys, good forum you have here, i'm learning a lot.

Normally i can fix a broken pc but this one im puzzled with.

I have a Pentium 3, slot 1 Xblade computer with an Intel M/B which will not display a bios screen or beep. Sorry I can't give more detail, the pc is not mine.

I've rejigged the memory, took out all pci cards, tried another agp card, tried another monitor, removed all IDE's, tried another PSU, renewed the cmos, and then the final step was I replaced the whole motherboard using paper washers just in case it was shorting.

Still the same result, as soon as I plug in the PC, it starts on its own accord and alls I get is the red HD activity light on permanent. All the fans and PSU spin as normal, just no Display whatsoever.

The only thing I can think of is dead processor (rare) or faulty case.

Any ideas or suggestions please?

Question: One Beep on POST

My Dell Dimension 4100 emits a single beep during the POST on every boot-up. Dell Tech support site says it's a memory refresh failure, and to re-seat the memory modules. I've done this, as well as test each of the two modules separately, and have also inserted a third memory module. In all cases I still get the single beep on boot-up. (The PC hangs up regularly, doesn't always shut down properly, and sometimes hangs on startup.)

No Post, No Beep. Bad MoBo?

after reading many threads about this subject i feel i should describe the problem i'm having, to know what my course of action should be.

i don't know for sure what was the cause of the malfunction but it started as system lock-ups and now the computer won't even power up. it seemed like video-card problems at first, because everything would freeze when i tryed to watch movies, and video problems could be noticed. yesterday after trying to deal with this video problem in lots of ways, i tryed to turn the computer on and nothing happened, no beeps and no post. when i push the power button the cpu fan and the psu fan rotate for half a second and then stop. i have to cut the power to the psu and reconnect it in order to try again. sometimes the power does go through but still no beep or post.

i tryed removing the cmos battery (all the removing done with power off in case you were wondering) and replacing it later, changing the jumpers to reset the bios (after doing those things i started getting more power ons than before), taking all out except what is absolutelly necessary, leaving only the cpu. tryed adding the ram, then tryed adding the video card... nothing works. i wonder if the video-card is needed for the POST BEEP to be heard. anyway, the main reason why i'm posting this is because i wanted to find out what is the defective piece here, as i suspect the mobo, the PSU, video-card or CPU (or RAM?).

Check the clear CMOS jumper isn't set to clear CMOS some motherboard manufacters set the jumper that way to save on battery life.

Question: NO POST Beep!!!

I just put together a Pentium 4 3.0ghz on an Intel D865PERL MoBo. But after I hook everything up, and push the power, the Mobo LED comes on, and all the fans are turning, but I don't get a POST. No beep, no error beeps, just complete silence. I barely know enough to get myself into trouble. If anyone has any suggestions, I will gladly try anything. Thanks.

Question: No post, no beep

Hi all,

My first post....great place!

I got a friends comp coz he wanted me to format and do a fresh install. He had a bunch of programs that was conflicting with each other. Anyway when I got it I thought I would just try to uninstall some programs. Long story short it gave me a blue screen "stop error". When I tried to re-boot it doesn't post and it doesn't give me a beep. It just turns on for a few seconds and shuts off. Could the power supply be failing?

Any input is appreciated.
