I seem to have messed up my friends rig.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My friend has recently purchased a skt 754 amd sempron 3400+ and asus k8n mobo.I was showing him how to overclock(as he has never done this before) and at 2.35ghz it was not p95 stable.We decided to loosen his timings a little as we figured this would help.His system hung and when it started to go into his bios it acted like it wasn't doing anything so we (stupidly) decided to change the jumpers to reset the rct ram.Now his system won't even boot and it beeps twice everytime we try to star it. Could someone please help me.I don't want to mess up my friends comp.

Unplug everything and pull the battery for about 10 min. Maybe resetting the CMOS didn't work.
Not bad at all...

He had a dead mobo before and it didn't beep at all.And when i had a fried mobo it didn't beep.So i think it might (slim chance ) still work.Also If he has to he can still get asus to send him a new one right?

Didn't work.However is it possible that the battery itself is dead?

have ya tried looking up the beep codes to see what they are.. it might just be something simple.. here this might help.. its an ami bios right.. here is a nice littel ami bois pdf that covers tons of stuff including beep codes.. i had to zip it .. some reason pdf is only 19.5 k.. why i dont know. jpgs get a bigger file size then that.. anyway this should help.. looks like 2 beeps means reseat the memory the board is not toast also it could be a parity circut error what ever that means


AMI BIOS beep codes

1 beep - DRAM refresh failure
2 beeps - Parity Circuit Failure
3 beeps - Base 64K RAM failure
4 beeps - System Timer Failure
5 beeps - Processor Failure
6 beeps - Keyboard Controller / Gate A20 Failure
7 beeps - Virtual Mode Exception Error
8 beeps - Display Memory Read/Write Failure
9 beeps - ROM BIOS Checksum Failure
10 beeps - CMOS Shutdown Register Read/Write Error

For 1 beep, 2 beeps, or 3 beeps try reseating the memory first. If the error still occurs, replace the memory with known good chips/SIMM's.
For 4 beeps, 5 beeps, 7 beeps, or 10 beeps the system board must be sent in for repair.
For 6 beeps try reseating the keyboard controller chip. If the error still occurs, replace the keyboard chip.
If the error persists, check parts of the system relating to the keyboard, e.g. try another keyboard, check to see if the system has a keyboard fuse.
8 beeps indicates a memory error on the video adapter. Replace the video card or the memory on the video card.
9 beeps indicates faulty BIOS chip(s). It is not likely that this error can be corrected by reseating the chips.
Consult the motherboard supplier or an AMI product distributor for replacement part(s).
If no beeps are heard and no display is on the screen, The first thing to check is the power supply. Connect a LED to the POWER LED connection on the motherboard. If this LED lights and the drive(s) spin up then the power supply will usually be good. Next, inspect the motherboard for loose components. A loose or missing CPU, BIOS chip, Crystal Oscillator, or Chipset chip will cause the motherboard not to function.
Next, eliminate the possibility of interference by a bad or improperly set up I/O card by removing all card except the video adapter.
The system should at least power up and wait for a drive time-out. Insert the cards back into the system one at a time until the problem happens again. When the system does nothing, the problem will be with the last expansion card that was put in.
If the above suggestions fail to cause any change in the dysfunction of the system, the motherboard must be returned for repair.

That is strange. I own an asus board and now I know what is wrong if that ever happens. Thanks. Have you looked at the Antec Neo He 550W. I had the 550W TPII, but traded up (for a little more$). It has an advanced cable manangment letting you use only power connectors you need. This helps from major clutter in your box.

Did you lock the PCI/AGP bus? Might've fried it that way.
