Hello.

 

After messing with Bios a little (but hopefully putting everything back as it were), and running CPU stress test on http://silver.urih.com/

 

my computer won't go out of "Sleep" (standby) state. It starts to go out, power goes on, but the fan's remain noisy as they always are in the moment of power coming on, and then nothing appears on screen. After a while when I tried to press reset button, I got 3 beeps from motherboard, so I power down PC by long press. I cold booted, put PC in Sleep, and when resumed, same thing. But I didn't wait for the beep this time.

 

Is it possible that it is related to BIOS settings? I have ASUS Bios. What else can it be? 

 

 

Thank you.

New Development. Looks like it is Bios. When I set my PC to Optimized for overcloacking the PC won't go off standby. When it is in regular (Standard) mode where everything is balanced, standby works fine. This is new issue as my PC is set for auto overcloaking. Any idea how to fix it?

Until someone here, familiar with OCing a PC, posts a possible answer, I suggest you return to default or known working settings in your BIOS.

3 beeps is normally RAM related... try reseating your RAM

 

(just read the thread again... yes saw101's advice is good: reset your BIOS to defaults and speak to overclocking enthusiasts before attempting such hazardous pursuits)

You can check what the beep codes mean in the manual for your motherboard.

Almost every BIOS for Windows machines is AMI BIOS these days...

Thank you all for your suggestions.

 

I was just wondering what happens at the moment of "wake up" that makes system not work properly or get stuck. The beeps only happen when I try to click reset button which resets system back into dos and reboots Windows again. 

 

As far as overclocking, I have Intel i5-2500K, which has auto overclocking feature that goes up from 3.4 to about 3.8-4.7.  My only reasoning is maybe memory frequency is selected improperly in Bios. The BIOS is Asus EFI Bios Utility.

 

I also get this thing where I turn on my PC, and sometimes it turns off a couple of seconds later, to only turn itself back on again a short while later. I did reset the system to Standard, but it doesn't overclock, which I don't really need, but now I feel "underpowered". So I want to get my 4.7 OC back. 

 

To be honest I could use a friend, as this is a bit beyond my expertise. I'll try that other forum as well.

Hello. Looks like going to extreme overclocking didn't help. Can someone help me? There has to be a way to resolve this somehow.
