Hi Folks Just fitted a new Asus m/b (P4S8X/X). Although things SEEM to be okay, in that WindowsXP has installed, there's loads of BIOS beeps. When I run 'PC Wizard' and 'Asus Probe', they show a list of voltages - one being 3.3v. But the actual readout is only 2.8-2.9 and is flahing red. My 1st thought was PSU, but the last m/b worked ok with it. What is the 3.3volt supply for? Could it be the monitoring chip at fault?
Don't understand what you're saying. Previous m/b was Gigabyte Titan 667 with 845PE chipset. Have simply replaced the board with Asus P4S8X/X using same cpu (P4 2.53Mhz 533FSB). Now got all these BIOS beeps. No temperature probs, so it aint that.
Hi The beep sequences and the meanings of each depend on the BIOS chip on your motherboard. Manufacturers use different codes for reporting their errors It should be in your manual or contact manufacturers wibe site. The beeps have to be counted i.e. one BIOS chip will produce six short beeps to indicate a keyboard failure. Start counting
Too many beeps and too incosistant to count. Very sporadic, of differing frequencies. Waddayamean what voltages-where are you looking? There are only ONE set of voltages, those listed in the BIOS, and the one that apparently should be 3.3 is reading 2.9 or less. Updating PC Probe makes no difference. Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!
You can't adjust the voltages in the PSU - you can only adjust when you get the warning, which you don't really want to do.
The number of beeps is irrelevant here - it's just a warning that something is wrong, not a fault code.
The 3.3 volts should not be so low - this means either the PSU can't cope with your new board OR it's always been like it, but you didn't get a warning on your old board - OR there's a BIOS problem in the voltage sensing on your new board.
