This thing won't stop beeping at startup!
Posted on 2003-10-27
Motherboard: Shuttle AI61 1ghz AMD
Running Windows Me
Computer runs fine, when I can get it running. About 1 month ago I shut down and did a reboot. Upon reboot it did nothing but continuously beep at me. Shut of, tried again, shut off, tried again....maybe on the 15th time it started without a problem. When it's on, it runs fine.
I'm afraid to shut it off. I have shut down several times and each time it takes many tries to get it turned back on.
Switched keyboards - did not fix.
Tried new mouse - did not fix.
Removed DIMM 128, bought a new one, no fix.
Tried a different DIMM socket - no fix.
New CMOS battery - no fix.
The beeping is Pre-Post - never gets to the setup.
The last 2 times I was able to get it turned on, I got a cheksum error.
I think there are only 2 things left. Motherboard and power supply.
Anyone else have any thoughts?
Uses AWARD BIOS.
