    Get beep

    guajiro1

      Dear Sirs,

      My name is Emilio R. Ruiz, I have a PC with the following characteristics:

      SYSTEM INFORMATION

      Computer Manufacturer  Intel Corporation Computer Model  DG41RQ

      Operating System (O/S)  Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Edition

      Operating System Build (O/S) (build 7600), 64-bit

      Operating System (version)  6.1.7600

      System RAM  4.0 GB

      Graphics Product  NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT Video Memory 1.7 GB

      GenuineIntel Model  DG41RQ AA Number AAE54511-203

      BIOS Vendor Intel Corp. BIOS Version RQG4110H.86A.0011.2009.0626.1639

      BIOS Release Date 06/26/09

      GenuineIntel Model  Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2160 @ 1.80GHz Intel

       

      When I connect my PC, two seconds later you hear a beep, then as between 6 and 10 seconds, the Intel logo appears, is in the lower right corner to get a rectangle with the number 50 inside, this takes about 15 to 20 seconds switching to EB within the rectangle and then hear the second beep, then starts and runs normally. Sometimes you hear 3 or 4 beeps.

       

      What would you advise me to do?

      Do these beeps are correct?

       

      Greetings and a hug

            And these BIOS Beep Codes are only for BIOS

             

            Desktop Boards

            BIOS beep codes

            This document gives troubleshooting tips for when you hear beep codes and your desktop board does not boot up successfully.

             

            You are getting 1, 2, or 3 beeps that indicate a memory failure.

             

            1 beep - Refresh Error (with nothing on the screen and it is not a video problem)

             

            2 beeps - Parity Error

             

            3 beeps - Base 64 K memory failure

             

             

            • Reseat the memory.
            • Make sure that the contacts on the memory and the socket are clean.
            • Try removing one bank of memory modules at a time. Note: Some systems might need to have a memory module in Bank 0.
            • Try using memory modules from the same manufacturer with the same part number and speed.
            • Check for a faulty memory module by trying the memory in a known good system.
            • Trying known good memory in the system.
            • Check the power supply and check for power fluctuations.
            • If the steps above do not resolve the problem, the desktop board may be defective. Try a different desktop board.

            You are getting 4 beeps

            indicating a timer not operational:

            • Check for foreign objects such as screws that may ground the desktop  board and make sure that screws that hold the motherboard are not too  tight.
            • Try a different desktop board.

            You are getting 5 beeps

            indicating a processor error:

            • Check for foreign objects such as screws that may ground the desktop  board and make sure the screws that hold the board are not too tight.
            • Make sure the processor is seated properly.
            • Try a different processor.
            • Remove the desktop board from the chassis and reinstall it.
            • If the steps above do not resolve the problem, the desktop board may be defective. Try a different desktop board.

            You are getting 6 beeps

            indicating 8042 - gate A20 failure:

            • Check for foreign objects such as screws that may ground the desktop  board and make sure the screws that hold the motherboard are not too  tight.
            • Try a different keyboard.
            • Try a different processor.

            You are getting 7 beeps

            indicating processor exception interrupt error

            • Make sure the processor is seated properly.
            • Try a different processor.
            • Try a different desktop board.

            You are getting 8 beeps indicating display memory read/write failure

            • Make sure that you have a video card on your system.
            • If possible, swap the memory on the video card.
            • Try a different video card.
            • Try a different desktop board.

            You are getting 9 beeps

            indicating ROM checksum error

            • Try reflashing the system BIOS.
            • If possible, try reseating the system BIOS chip.
            • Try a different desktop board.

            You are getting 10 beeps

            indicating CMOS shutdown register read/write error

            • Try a different desktop board.

            You are getting 11 beeps

            indicating cache memory bad

            • Make sure the system is configured properly (CMOS Setup Program and jumpers on the board) for the RAM cache.
            • If possible, replace the RAM cache.
            • Try a different processor.
            • Try a different desktop board.
