4 long beeps - No Post brand new replaced board - 990F xa-ud3

Hello,
I have a new gigabyte board.
Got my motherboard replaced and got a new model because I got 4 beeps. my fans are spinning I have reseated the cpu and RAM I have removed the graphics card and my mobo has no built in graphics card but id get a beep for that for sure no? No one seems to know what four beeps mean?


I have 8gb skill RAM which worked fine on old mobo before it gave me 4 beeps on that one too. A 750 CiT watt power supply.
Regards

  1. read your motherboard manual to find out what the beeps mean
  2. Its not in the manual cmon give me a little credit.
  3. It actually is in the manual. Here's the manual.
    http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-990xa-ud3_e.pdf

    On page 92, it states that continuous long beeps means the graphics card isn't recognized. You are getting the same code with or without the GPU installed which makes sense.

    Try a different graphics card.
  4. Thats the wrong model!. Anyway do beep codes stop then turn off? because it might be the graphics but It was same beep code on old mobo and it had built in graphics card too which I was using testing out side of box

    The beep codes in my manual are:

  5. Yes that is the correct manual
  6. But it still says nothing about 4 long beeps either
  7. no one?
  8. Was looking all over for this peep code. Getting suggestions of checking memory in different slots to trying to remount the CPU.

    But specific solutions for this model of MB, I have not found.

    Maybe try checking the CPU and see if its properly mounted. The only read I found that had a solution to four long beeps (same company, different model MB), solved their problem by remounting the CPU.

    Sorry I cannot find info specific to your MB.
  9. Hi, What CPU using and what motherboard version (rev 1.2, 3.0 ....)?
    Some CPUs require a BIOS update http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=4001
    Have you tried starting the board with sinle module installed?

    Hi there Here are some photos of the CPU I want to rule it out really and im concerned that the cpu holder is loose from mobo.. Also im no longer getting a beep either without RAM or anything is that because CPU is not incorrectly perhaps?

    also Im certain there are no bent pins either. but there are photos.

    It says on that link since bios FA and I dont know if thats the one I have at the moment or not because I havent been able to get onto the motherboard bios yet :/

    Cant start with a single module either
  12. Hooray sound is back turns out I had to push the cpu in a bit while closing it instead of just putting it on and closing like usal..

    Okay so im back to RAM and mobo and psu..
  13. I tried out a PCI Debug card thing today and im getting these codes:
    C7 - Stays on that the longest
    E3 - Flickers every so often to that
    CF - Every so often flickers on.

    Ideas? manual with card aint much help
