Asrock Extreme6 4 beeps when booting

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Well here's the story, my computer went to sleep (the rig in my sig) and when i went to wakeup, it wouldn't wake up at all. Fans we're spinning, but the keyboard nor the mouse would wake up the monitor. This isn't the first time its happened either, i figured okay ill hit the reboot button (being that i'm using windows 8 it reboots in seconds so its not a huge deal) usually that solves the issue. This time it didn't, it attempted to reboot and all i heard was 4 short beeps *beep*...*beep*...*beep*...*beep* and still the screen wouldn't show anything. Rebooted again, and the same thing happened. I finally just turned all the power off and then back on, started to boot and windows had to restore (no big deal) so that's what happened.

I did some research and apparently 4 short beeps means its a system timer failure? And after googling that it appears the board is bad. Would that be correct? or am i just over reacting? Please any tips would be greatly appreciated, this is a brand new build but if the board is bad then i'd like to get it RMA'd with overnight shipping ASAP.

I didn't see it quick enough. I'm running a memory test right now since I got it booted back up. Then I'll have to go to bed but tomorrow I figure I'll take stuff out and find the root of the issue.

Alright but try and see if you catch the dr. debug and go to your Manuel and match the codes. Good luck mate! thumb.gif

Thank you smile.gif The memory test came back with no errors, so i'm at a loss right now. Its a brand new build so i'd doubt its the motherboard? I know its not a heat issue either. And none of the pins are broken. Only thing that gets me is the issue waking up from a sleep.

Update: Read through more of this thread here and fixed some of my settings. Specifically the ones that could affect the computer waking up from sleeping. Buts it late here and i work at 7am, so sadly i don't have time to open it up and figure out what went wrong. If anybody has any suggestions of what i should be checking over tomorrow please post it smile.gif

Update: Been looking at this ever since i got home from work, and i can't even replicate the issue which makes solving it that much harder. So far i've adjusted my overclock settings on my i5 3570k (at 4.0Ghz right now) seeing if maybe something was unstable, but i didn't change much and followed the asrock guide on this site. What i know right now is aside from two times in a row of not booting up correctly, its booted perfectly ever since. I did a memtest last night which came back fine, did an hour long prime test which came back fine. I did a GPU test which again came back fine.

I'm happy nothing is coming back wrong, but it would be nice to know what caused this issue, so i can get to fixing it. I figure the board obviously works since i'm using it right now. But i'm really at a loss frown.gif

Any tips?

4 short beeps on AMI bios means a memory issue. Since you did run memtest and it passed, then maybe there was a slight loose on connection from one of the memory. It if ever comes back, then try reseating all the memory sticks installed.

I also just did a intel burn test and that came back fine as well, everything no higher than 68C. Guess ill play the waiting game now haha

Waiting game didn't take too long. Went to eat dinner, came back and the monitor wouldn't wake up. I tried rebooting and had 5 beeps, according to the asrock site that means its a process error. What's the easiest fix?

Is it one long and 3 short beeps? When I had that it was a faulty video card.
