Hi, I have:
>MOTHERBOARD: ASUS M2NPV-VM
>CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 5600+ (2.8GHz) AM2
>RAM: 2GB G-Skill DDR-2
>PSU: Aspire 420W
Yesterday I was trying to run spinrite-6 on my HDD's but it it wasnt working correctly, so i was told to make a MS-DOS Floppy Disk.
So unplugged the PSU.
Then I plugged in my floppy cable to the mobo then plugged in its power cable.
but when the PC came on it started beeing at me: 1-Long 2-Short Beeps Over & Over Again.
so i unplugged that floppy drive & its power.
Booted the PC back on again and the beeping is still there with the same beep sequence.
so u Google beeping codes. and see its BIOS Errors or somthing.
So i look up my BIOS BEEP CODES here --> http://kb.iu.edu/data/afzy.html
im pretty sure i have phoenix award or award bios not 100% sure though..??
but it says:
1 long, 2 short Video adapter error: Bad or improperly seated video card
Repeating beeps Memory error: Bad or improperly seated RAM
so then i did all what it says here --> http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000607.htm
unplugged everything so only the 24pin MOBO & 4pin CPU power cables are hooked up
all ram, hdd's, PCI Cards, adapters ect are disconnected-unplugged.
just the power button cable & the 24pin MOBO & 4pin CPU power cables are hooked up.
booted up again and still the beeping is there with the same code..
I unplug the 4pin CPU power cable and boot back up and the beeping is gone.
so removed the CPU & HeatSink + Fan Clean them off and reattached them.
plugged in the CPU power and rebooted and the beeping is back..
does this mean my CPU is damaged or something..??
What do you guys think i should do..??
is there any more info you guys might need from me to help diagnose whats causing this..?
thanks for anyone who can help..
