I couldnt start my computer today morning, the processor fans and graphic card fan was not working.i thought that may be power supply has failed . Then i changed the power supply with vip 400 the processor fan started but i heard some 3-4 beeps.

  1. Hi,
    You can find here the beeps meaning: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-010249.htm
    What beeps pattern are you getting?
  2. Im getting 2 long beeps and a pause then 2 long beeps..
    I wanted to know how do i knw that my processor and graphic card are fine
  3. Best answer
    It looks like a graphics issue. Have you tried removing the NVidia card and using the onboard graphics?
  4. Ya the beep pattern i told u is without the graphic card...i uninstalled it as the vip has only 400 watts
  5. If you remove all memory modules, what's the beeps pattern?
  6. Does anyone know where do i claim my warranty for corsair and intel motherboard. I live in mumbai
  7. Im getting three short beeps pause three short beeps pause continuously..with ram , graphic card &hard disk unplugged
  8. I suggest clearing the CMOS (unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for few minutes) then installing single RAM module and starting the board. See if still 2 long beeps.
    I guess that the motherboard is OK.

    You should be able to get a RMA authorization of your equipment at the web sites of the manufacturers.

    After removing the cmos battery for few minites i reinstalled the battery and the ram ..still im getting 2 long beeps pause 2 long beeps.
  11. It could be the board though or the processor, since neither the graphics card nor the onboard graphics do work.
    Hard to say which one without swapping components and testing.
    A local shop might help or try RMA-ing both motherboard and CPU. Not sure about the graphics card also.
    It seems that the power failure damaged more than the power supply.

    i managed to start my computer ... actually i had changed the settings in the bios for onboard graphics to always diable long time ago, i think that might be conflicting to start up my computer with the onboard graphics ,now i installed a spare graphic card and the pc started all normal,, now i think only my nvidia gtx 650 ti boost and corsair cx500 is damaged... looking at my pc specs is the powersupply sufficient and good enough to run the gtx 650 ti boost with my current mobo and processor, i doubt my powersupply isnt sufficient enough thats why it failed...
  13. By clearing the CMOS, the BIOS settings (set to default) should have allowed the onboard graphics. Weird.
    Great idea to test a different graphics card.

    I did as u said removing the battery for a few minutes ..but it didnt work..is my processor and motherboard good enough to run nvidia gtx 650ti boost
  15. Yes, they are. Even the CX 500 should support it, but it seems that yours didn't.
    Will you RMA the card and the power supply?
