Hello,

Try this 1

1)Remove the RAM from the slot, clean it and place it back properly or try another

slot.

2) If the problem still exits, remove both RAM's from the slot, place one RAM in the

slot and then switch ON your computer. Next time try another RAM.

Check your RAM also. Even bad RAM will result in such problems.

Good Luck.

Hello,
Try this 1
Take both the RAM's out --> Place one RAM in the 1st slot and switch ON your computer. If the problem still exists --> take that RAM out and place it in the another slot..Continue this process in
the remaining slots until you wont get any beep. If the problem still exists then try above process with another RAM.
Check your graphics card also.
Note down the beep clearly. Example: 1Long and 2 short beeps , then let me know the beep and
your motherboard brand name and model number.
Good Luck

Hello,

Try resetting the BIOS. Click on the below link and follow the instructions given in the "Hardware Reset"
https://ccm.net/faq/1192-lost-bios-password-resetting-the-bios
After resetting the BIOS if the problem still exists then remove the graphic card from the slot. Place the RAM in the slot and switch ON your PC. If the beep appears, check the beep code once again. Check if its one long beep followed by short beeps. Check once again and let me know the beep.
Good Luck

Its CLRTC. Turn OFF your computer and unplug the power chord. Now move the jumper from
pins 1-2(which is default) to pins 2-3. After a minute, place back the jumper to the default pins 1-2. Plug your power chord --> Switch ON your PC --> Go to BIOS settings, load default settings --> Save the settings and exist from BIOS.
Good Luck

If you have another computer that uses the same type of memory try using that RAM in your computer or check your RAM in another PC or .If another computers memory works you have bad memory. If its 1 Long beep and three short beep - NO VGA detected

Remove all the RAM's from the slot --> Switch ON your computer --> Check the beep.
Are you able to get one long beep followed by two short beeps ?

Hello,
No VGA detected means VGA is not connected to the monitor or it failed to detect the monitor or
failed to recognize the VGA card
Good Luck
