I'm running Win 7, 64-bit. I have two problems..

 

1st problem is that my computer hangs at bios. It'll beep and hang, beep and hang, 3 times until it eventually starts to load. This began happening after I installed my Gigabyte 760 graphics card.

 

2nd problem, and the bigger problem, is after I type in my password and hit enter, it'll stick at saying "welcome" and show the loading circle but it'll just hang. In the past, it's been always doing this. However, I could just restart my computer and repeat the process of typing in my password but it'll load to the desktop on the second attempt!

 

I'm currently running now in safe-mode with networking

 

Give me some instructions and I'll promptly get it done!

 

Thanks in advance for your time!

3 beeps is normally indicative of RAM failure. In the first instance, re-seat your RAM sticks on the motherboard to see if that helps.

 

2nd problem could be caused by the first. It may be that 1 of your RAM sticks has gone bad.

Bleeperizer,

 

I re-sat my ram sticks as suggested by swapping the two sticks and placing them in the opposite slot.

 

My computer still beeps 3 times with a 30 second pause in between each beep before initializing to the log-in screen.

At the log-in screen, it logged in almost immediately. I've only logged in once since then. So, maybe it's fixed? I'll let you know as we continue to troubleshoot the 3-beep-delayed start-up.

3 beeps is still cause for concern. :unsure:

 

First I would check the other bank on the motherboard. Place the sticks from slots 1 and 3 to slots 2 and 4.

 

Still beeping?

 

If yes you can put the sticks back...

 

The next step is to test the RAM with MemTest86+.

 

Burn the ISO to a disk (create a disk with the image) and boot from it, or create a bootable USB with the tool available.

 

It's pretty straight forward to use, no explanation necessary.

Hey TsVk! Thanks for your help so far

I burned the disk and have attempted to boot from it

However, when I hit f12 for the boot menu or del for the bios setup my computer hangs!

That is cause for concern. :( It sounds like a BIOS error.

 

I'm nervous to advise on how you should update your BIOS at this stage, as a failed procedure could ruin your motherboard.

 

Please contact your motherboard manufacturer for advice on this.

Normally what GB of RAM do you have I heard that you need more than 8GB of Ram to run that Graphics card or might be your motherboard that needs upgrading?

Ok, TsVk! I'll contact the motherboard manufacturer 

 

RobertHD, I have 16gb of ram. I bought my motherboard in 2012. It's a: 

GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
