Fx 4100 asrock extreme3 970 possible cpu fail

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
i have beeps. five of them. and short too i think. all of the fans work, and then the beeps. a lot of places say its cpu failing in some way. another says it might bo vga related.
the cpu lamp does blink orange when the beeps start.
if i disconnect the graphics card, mostly the beeps are replaced by nothing. no beeps.
tried most of everything one could do in a situation like this. only thing i havent tried (i think) is putting another cpu in (witch i dont have) to boot and update bios.

the box for the MOBO has the fx cpu logo on it, and i have seen dudes on youtube with this cpu, board and RAM:s working fine it seems..

if the motherboard was fried, would i even be getting beep codes?
i also get the three short beeps over and over if i remove all of the RAM:s

beep beep beep beep beep............
sounds almost as if the cpu is working a little, .. but very QUIET!!! are the fx cpu:s extremely quiet?

thanks a thousandfold/ J Veiz

I don't know how you intend to hear CPU activity sounds but I wouldn't like it..... LOL. Some boards need BIO updates to work with FX chips, so hopefully yours needs it. I see within a few updates BD was supported though. Is this a new build? I'm just trying to see if the MB ever worked. You can't fry something that was DOA.

Turn power off.

CLR CMOS.

Try one stick of RAM at a time (could be a bad stick).

Get a cheap Sempron to throw in it to update BIOS. They sometimes can be found as cheap as $20.

The FX is supported by all BIOS versions on that board. I built one today (with Phenom II) and just looked it up.

He started two theads...both are turning into a waste of time.

Wrong. 1.40, 1.50 and 1.60 bios only support FX CPUs.

I don't know where you read that, but look at this: http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/970%20Extreme3/?cat=CPU

He has a 4100: AM3+ FX FD4100WMW4KGU(BE) 95W Bulldozer 3600MHz 2000MHz 2MB x2 8MB B2 All -All is under the BIOS version.

I guess I should have said the FX-4100 is supported on ALL versions. True, not all FX's are supported by all BIOS versions.

Hope that cleared it up.
