4 beeps at start-up in a loop

  weyax 13:51 10 Nov 2018


Today when I tried to turn my PC on it beeped 4 times, turned off by itself, turned on again, beeped 4 times, ... It went like that in a loop. I managed to turn it off by holding the power button until it stopped doing that.

I searched online and found that i should take my RAM out and pu it back in. I did that and now when i turn the PC on it just goes in a 4 beep loop, without turning off this time.

The screen is off the entire time.

Intel Core i3-3240 LGA1155

ASRock Z77 Pro4-M

Ram: Evo Corsa Geil

Any suggestions are very much appreciated.

If you Google "ASRock Z77 Pro4-M Beep Codes" you'll find that there is a "Realtime Clock Malfunction"

Then Google "Realtime Clock Malfunction".
