no post beeps and a redlight. UH OH.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
well ended up having to take my gpu out and when I went put everything back in all I get for post is 1 beep followed by 3 quick beeps. there is a red light next to my power connector on my 1950xt and I get no real post.

what did I do what can I do to fix it?

please help cause only two outcomes I can see to this if I can't get it fixed. one is my g/f will kill me and no more hanging out on OCN or the second is I go back to using a pci (not express) 9250 radeon

Look in your motherboard manual and see what those beeps mean.

EDIT: Actually, I'll look it up for you.

I believe it is a gpu error of some sort. I have taken out and put back in multiple times this card. I've cleared the cmos. tried a different plug in on my psu for the pci-e power. only thing I haven't treid is my x4 pci slot yet.

brb I guess

I believe it means either no video card or bad video ram.
post #5 of 20
I don't know if it has onboard video. If it does, try that. If not, try to borrow a cheap PCI card or something.

I googled Asus P5b deluxe/WiFi bios beeps and it took me to a forum. The guy was hearing 1 long beep then 3 short beeps and it turned out his video card was bad. He went out and bought a new one and it posted. So, I'm think your video card is bad.

EDIT: Here is the forum link.
