BIOS Beep Codes

When a computer is first turned on, or rebooted, its BIOS performs a power-on self test (POST) to test the system's hardware, checking to make sure that all of the system's hardware components are working properly. Under normal circumstances, the POST will display an error message; however, if the BIOS detects an error before it can access the video card, or if there is a problem with the video card, it will produce a series of beeps, and the pattern of the beeps indicates what kind of problem the BIOS has detected.
Because there are many brands of BIOS, there are no standard beep codes for every BIOS.

The two most-used brands are AMI (American Megatrends International) and Phoenix.

Below are listed the beep codes for AMI systems, and here are the beep codes for Phoenix systems.

AMI Beep Codes

Beep Code Meaning
1 beep DRAM refresh failure. There is a problem in the system memory or the motherboard.
2 beeps Memory parity error. The parity circuit is not working properly.
3 beeps Base 64K RAM failure. There is a problem with the first 64K of system memory.
4 beeps System timer not operational. There is problem with the timer(s) that control functions on the motherboard.
5 beeps Processor failure. The system CPU has failed.
6 beeps Gate A20/keyboard controller failure. The keyboard IC controller has failed, preventing gate A20 from switching the processor to protect mode.
7 beeps Virtual mode exception error.
8 beeps Video memory error. The BIOS cannot write to the frame buffer memory on the video card.
9 beeps ROM checksum error. The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is likely faulty.
10 beeps CMOS checksum error. Something on the motherboard is causing an error when trying to interact with the CMOS.
11 beeps Bad cache memory. An error in the level 2 cache memory.
1 long beep, 2 short Failure in the video system.
1 long beep, 3 short A failure has been detected in memory above 64K.
1 long beep, 8 short Display test failure.
Continuous beeping A problem with the memory or video.

Phoenix Beep Codes

Phoenix uses sequences of beeps to indicate problems. The "-" between each number below indicates a pause between each beep sequence. For example, 1-2-3 indicates one beep, followed by a pause and two beeps, followed by a pause and three beeps. Phoenix version before 4.x use 3-beep codes, while Phoenix versions starting with 4.x use 4-beep codes. Click here for AMI BIOS beep codes.

Rumah Gadang dan maknanya

Tak adil rasanya kalau saya tak menampilkan artikel tentang Rumah Gadang yang merupakan ciri Khas dari Suku Minangkabau yang banyak makna terkandung didalam bangunan Rumah Gadang ini.Apalagi saya menggunakan nama blog ini ada embel-embel minangnya.

Rumah Gadang merupakan ciri khas Rumah Adat Minangkabau (Sumatra Barat), yang berfungsi sebagai tempat tinggal keluarga besar dan pusat kegiatan orang yang sedarah dan seketurunan dari kerabat matrilinial baik kegiatan ekonomi dan sosial maupun kegiatan budaya, dikepalai oleh seorang Tungganai (Mamak) dan sebagai syarat berdirinya suatu nagari di Minangkabau, dengan arsitektur bentuk atap bergonjong (berbentuk tanduk kerbau).

Rumah Gadang dibangun dengan bergonjong dimana semakin keatas semakin runcing, agar air mudah meluncur dan atap tahan lama walaupun terbuat dari injuk. Gonjong atap Rumah Gadang terdiri dua pola, yaitu gonjong Rumah Gadang Pola Koto Pialang (Aristokrat) terdiri dari 3 gonjong, 3 gonjong kanan , 1 gonjong depan dan 1 gon…

2 Cara Untuk mengembalikan hilangnya menu tab di task manager windows

Suatu saat ada saja kemungkinan Task Manager di komputer kita mengalami kehilangan menu tabnya sehingga yang tampil hanya TASK(processes)nya saja .dimana tab yang lainnya seperti Application, performance,networking dan usersnya tidak tampil ketika mengaktifkan task manager tersebut.Task Manager yang merupakan bawaan windows ini merupakan suatu aplikasi yang menampilkan informasi secara rinci tentang kinerja komputer dan aplikasi yang berjalan, proses dan penggunaan CPU ( Central Prosessing Unit ) , melakukan informasi muatan dan memori, aktivitas jaringan dan statistik, log-in pengguna, dan sistem pelayanan. Task Manager juga dapat digunakan untuk menetapkan prioritas proses, prosesor affinitas, secara paksa menghentikan proses, dan mematikan, Aktifkan Ulang, hibernasi atau log off dari Windows.Biasanya kalau menu tab pada task manager ini hilang disebabkan oleh virus yang bisa dikembalikan bisa dengan 2 cara yang saya ketahui ,yaitu :1. Melalui GPEDIT  ,langkahnya seperti dibawah ini…

CMOS CHECKSUM BAD atau selalu setting BIOS setiap menghidupkan Komputer

Seiring dengan kita terus menggunakan komputer PC atau Laptop kita lambat laun ,adakalanya akan tampil saat booting ada pesan kalau kita harus menekan tombol F1 untuk run setup atau F2 untuk ke posisi default setinggan BIOS. Namun nyatanya setelah kita menyetting ulang konfigurasi BIOS ,setelah kita mematikan komputer dan ketika menghidupkan PC/Laptop lagi akan tampil posisi semula kembali. Bingung bagaimana solusinya ? sebaiknya diteruskan membacanya. he he he..biar tuntas semuanya.Kita kenali dulu apa itu BIOS ? = Basic Input Output System, merujuk kepada kumpulan rutin perangkat lunak yang mampu melakukan hal-hal berikut:Inisialisasi (penyalaan) serta pengujian terhadap perangkat keras (dalam proses yang disebut dengan Power On Self Test, POST) Memuat dan menjalankan sistem operasi Mengatur beberapa konfigurasi dasar dalam komputer (tanggal, waktu, konfigurasi media penyimpanan, konfigurasi proses booting, kinerja, serta kestabilan komputer) Membantu sistem operasi dan aplikasi dal…
