10 long beeps

It is Intel D101GGC Motherboard.

I start the PC and the LED doesn't turn on for 20+ seconds.
Then the LED starts with long beeps, I hear 10 long beeps.
The PC is quite old and I fear that a wire may have gotten disconnected.

PS: I tried the RAM on both slots and even cleaned the RAM and slots
Help Asap please.
Thank You

  1. Hi, Try replacing the CMOS battery with a new one.
  2. Alright, I will test a newer battery today and let ya know. Thanks :)
  3. I tried to use a new battery, and i still have the same problem.
  4. If starting only with CPU and CPU fan installed, what's the beeps pattern?

    Sorry, I don't surely get you. Will i have to detach the RAM, HDD, CD ROM and stuff?
  6. Look up your motherboard manual, which should have the beep codes in it.
  7. Yes, remove all components but CPU and CPU fan. See what beeps getting.

    I detached the RAM, HDD and DVD ROM, now I had continuous long beeps.
    Though these weren't long like in previous case where the beep went on for more than 5 seconds and everything was attached.
    Now can we know the reason?

    Umm, I don't know, but maybe it's:
    Quote:
    Single beep - continual long beep - Auxiliary power may not be connected to an external graphics card - Check the documentation for any external graphics card installed for information on connecting an auxiliary power source.

    But I d not have any external graphics card. If you want I can tell you exact duration of a beep.

    Hard to say. Can you take the board to a local shop for testing?

    Yes, I can; but the only problem is I cannot trust them. I don't have much knowledge in hardware and there are some who take advantage of that.
    Though I will have to take it to a technician, so I might carry the cabinet there, cause it's nearby to my house.
    Any suggestions for that? ...I might keep it on hold when he gives me a solution and ask you guys first.
