PC won't get to post - does 3 beeps Tags: Motherboards RAM Last response: August 6, 2011 12:16 AM in Motherboards Share shellski August 5, 2011 10:01:39 PM I'm trying to fault find on this PC (my parents one but I built it originally): Gigabyte GA-M720-US3 is the board It froze last night and then the screen lost signal and every few minutes it made a beep. I've plugged it in and it does 3 short clicks/ beeps when you turn it on and nothing more, it won't post at all. Removed each stick of RAM in turn, swapped them into different channels, tried them one at a time, tried some known working RAM in it and still the same. Removed the RAM and still the same although I get a huge long beep because it's obviously upset no RAM. Reseated graphics card, changed the motherboard battery, unplugged hard drive still the same. I'm leaning towards it being the motherboard. Any other suggestions before I go this route?

RAM these days is really cheap like 4GB right now is around $20-$40 and some even shows $14... It is most likely your Memory that's the problem so replace them with Better RAM... ram1009 a b V Motherboard August 5, 2011 10:24:34 PM Find out who makes the BIOS and Google their beep codes.
