BIOS beep codes.
« on: 12-September-05, 10:14:43 »

I see many users to confused on BIOS beep codes, so ill create a new topic with them (i search the forum for a topic like this but i didn't find anything, but if this topic exists just delete mine.)

AMI BIOS:
1 beep - System boot successfull
*1beep - Refresh failure - (NO VIDEO) memory refresh failure (bad memory)
2 beeps - Parity error - bad memory
3 beeps - Base 64K memory failure - bad memory
4 beeps - Timer not operational - bad motherboard
5 beeps - Processor error - bad processor
6 beeps - 8042 gate A20 failure - bad cpu or mainboard
7 beeps - Processor exception interput error - bad processor
8 beeps - Display memory read/write failure - bad video card or memory
9 beeps - ROM checksum error - bad BIOS
10 beeps - CMOS shutdown register read/write error - bad motherboard
11 beeps - Cache memory bad - bad CPU or motherboard
12 beeps - BIOS rom file incorrect size - The BIOS ROM file found does not match the size of the flash device
13 beeps - BIOS rom image mismatch - The BIOS ROM file layout configuration does not match image present in the flash device
5 short + 1 long beeps - Memory error - No memory detected in the memory slots.
6 short + 1 long beeps - Memory error - EDO memory detected in system

AWARD BIOS:
1 short - System boot successfull
2 short - CMOS setting error
1 long 1 short - DRAM or M/B error
1 long 2 short - Monitor or display card error
1 long 3 short - Keyboard error
1 long 9 short - BIOS ROM error
*repeated beeps - DRAM error
*repeated short beeps - Power error
*Repeated high & low beeps - Processor is damaged/Overheated

Could be motheboard problematic or PSU not able to supply power properly.

Btw, please open a new thread for your question instead of posting in the stickies.

I have a P4N Diamond (AMI BIOS) that is beeping as follows...1 beep, pause, 2 beeps, pause, 1 beep.

This sticky doesn't cover all motherboards, so would it be possible for some experts to post updates so that all of the newer boards are also covered?

A new piece of useful info by djcs on hardware diagnostic testers:

Something that could be added to the beep codes forum

http://search.ebay.com.au/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37&satitle=motherboard+tester&category0=

i have found them very helpful....
if you do a search on ebay for just motherboards, you can find isa and usb based testers too....
