New VI7 No Joy

Discussion in 'Abit' started by Dave Thompson, Jan 24, 2004.

  1. Started a build up of a new machine.

    VI7 MB
    G-Force FX 128 video.

    On power-up the pc speaker emits a loooong beep and repeats about every 30
    seconds. The monitor never sees a wake up signal from the card.

    I inserted a known good ATI video card - Same problem.

    Of course, the MB booklet is silent on beep codes.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just did that!

    In my case the beeping was down to the setting on my aerocooler fan. As
    soon as I turned up the RPM it stopped beeping, and all was well. If the
    CPU fan isn't plugged in, you will get beeps!

    It might well "beep" on any other parameters which are out of limits.

  3. Thanks. I got impatient and took it back to Fry's. They tested it and
    found half the memory traces on the MB were not soldered. New board and the
    machine is running fine.
