Boot loop, continuous short beeping, need help

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi i recently built a new computer and upon booting the system fans power up, the speaker plays constant beeps and the case power button lights up for a few seconds before rebooting. After the first reboot the beeps stop and the computer appears to start up normally, beeps once (as it should) and the monitor shows the gigabyte splash screen followed by a blue screen reading uefi - duelbios on top, this stays up for about 2 seconds before rebooting back into the "constant beeping" mode again. This cycle repeats every time i try and boot.

Even though the gigabyte splash screen shows prompts for bios entry pressing the keys result in nothing but the same blue screen.

Any ideas? :3

*edit - problem only arose when I disabled intergrated graphics in my bios (graphics card wasn't being utilized)

I was going to say "look at the manual and find out the beep codes" but I just found out that THAT particular manual doesn't have it. At least, they forgot to put it in, they clearly wrote "go to chapter 5 troubleshooting" but they left it out of the troubleshooting portion....

SOOOO, I found it elsewhere. here it is:

Thanks for the quick reply, problem is the beeping is continuous so I'm pretty sure it's more than 11 :3

Ahaha I've tried that :3 I actually kept the battery out overnight and still the problem persisted, btw one thing I forgot to note is that this boot loop problem only arose when I (in stupid desperation to get my graphics card working) disabled intergrated graphics in bios -_-

now that you mention... so gigabyte comes w/ dual bios, doesnt that mean if the first fails, it'll resort to the 2nd? (CMOS too?) im not familar with that

So you took out the 660 Ti and you also disabled the integrated GPU? Try putting the 660 Ti back in - it might just be throwing a fit because there is no graphics output.

I would...

Remove graphics card.

Remove all but one RAM stick.

Disconnect all drives except for OS drive.

Reset CMOS, however you properly do that on your board.

Try again. If no luck, try the other stick of RAM.

If you did all the above, yes, probably time to RMA the board.

One last thing, you said you just recently built this PC. Might want to take the board out of the case and set it up on the cardboard box that it came in. Wouldn't be the first time I saw a board shorted out inside the case somehow, stuff stuck behind the board, standoffs installed incorrectly, etc.

You could try another HDD as well, if you havent already.
