Non stop beeeeep!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My mom thought it was time to upgrade her old emachines, so i picked out these parts for it.

Motherboard:http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813185084

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819103033

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820227082

I set it all up, power it on and all i hear is this loud "BEEEEEPPP!" this beep does not have a certain pattern like 1 long + 2 quick or anything like that, its just beeeeeeep (pause) beeeeeeep (pause) beeeeeeep and it does not stop!!!!!!. This beeping occurs once i plug in the power for the cpu, but if i unplug that it goes away. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated so i dont have to RMA anything.

it immediately started beeping the moment you connect the power cord, and not when you hit the power button???


Check your cable connections... it seems you might have connected something wrong.

When I get new parts, I always first do a boot outside the case (motherboard on antistatic flat surface, with CPU/Cooler, a single stick or RAM, and the video card... nothing else.

PS: Why not a X2 3600+?

What video card? I don't know if it's the same for all video cards, but whenever I forget to plug in my power cord for my card, it does one loooooooooooong screams until I turn it off.

No sry if i didnt explain well, let me try again. If i dont have the cpu power plugged in and i power it on it will not beep, but if i plug in the cpu power and then power the computer on, it will start the beeping noise.

i didnt go with the x2 because my mom just usually web browses and stuff, but there is no video card i just use on board. Its also just not one long "BEEEEPP!" theres a pause in between beeps and they wont stop.

Again, the beeping starts the moment you plug in the power cord??? not ater you hit the power button?

I think you made a mistake with the cables somewhere.

On my board it was the RAM causing such long beeps, but that's an Intel rig. Try with a single RAM stick.

Well on my amd system the same occurs with ram problems, just beep beep beep beep beep to. So give the ram a shot like chozart suggested.

I'm pretty sure one long beep is a CPU error, make sure the HS is on right. Have you tried a CMOS clear?
