infernal beeping!!

  andy_bell1977 12:20 09 Nov 2005

I have an Asrock K7S41 motherboard and i am getting a single beep which makes my mouse freeze for a second on screen and this is driving my crazy. Can any of you very clever people possibly tell me what is wrong and how it may be solved.

look at click here the bios beep codes sugest a memery error try removing and reinserting the modules

  andy_bell1977 13:34 09 Nov 2005

thats is what i thought also. Do you mean the memory stick - DDR? I have already done this but i will give it another go. If it persists do you think it is corrupt or simply that i just need more??

if you have more than one try one at a time. if you know some one that uses the same modules in there pc, try if it works on there pc.

i have taken it out and put it back and still beeping. I have checked the system in the control panel and it is saying that i have 449mb ram even though i have a 512mb in the slot - is this usual??

Regarding the difference between 449mb and 512mb depends in what you may have running in the background.

Heat warning from BIOS

Take the Side Of your Computer check the CPU fan is turning freely, Also try the computer side off and try it

The missing ram is down to a 64mb onboard graphics card and is perfectly normal. Your mobo does incorporate cpu temp and chassis temp sensors so follow woodchips advice.

Yeah - i thought that also. I have installed cpu temp monitor software and there does not seem to be a problem. I have taken the sides off and even gone as far as taken the fan off and clean underneath it but yet the problem still persists!!!

If it's just one regular beep then it's pointing to Hardware problem. May be PSU or anything, Memory and Graphics does the Beeps in a sequence. Have you checked the BIOS for PC Health Temp
