another beep question

By bulldoggy_27 ·
As soon as I turn on power switch I get consistent series of long beeps. None of the short series which would help me figure out the problem. Replaced RAM with known good RAM. Sounds possibly like MB to me, any other opinions?

How many long beeps are there?

Depending on which BIOS in your system, the number of beeps could mean entirely different things.

Generally, a continuous set of beeps means the power supply is defective or the motherboard is shorted.

A set of beeps is almost always a code. What is the exact pattern of the beeps and what is the Motherboard and Bios versions?

Check out the Video card. It may be badly seated or even faulty. Many times you change the memory and this causes the VGA card to unseat itself and then you have a lot of beeping going on! Hope this helps. Ciao!

There is no specific amount, it just keeps going. Hit power switch and starts beeping and doesnt stop.
