Memory error when in sleep mode

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Sometimes when I turn my pc off with sleep mode, I get a beep error message when I start it again some hours later. It is the same 3 short beeps every time it has happened. I have a Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 motherboard. It says on Gigabytes website that 3 short beeps means "basic memory 64K address check error". Why does this happen and what does it mean? I have 4x4GB DDR3.

Try reseating your ram. Also in windows follow these steps:


1. Press and hold the windows key and then press X (so win + x)

2. click on event viewer (third from the top)

3. Expand the windows logs section and click on system.

4. Look for errors in the timestamps when you know your computer is sleeping.

5. If you see any, screenshot them and post them on this thread.


Also try using windows memory diagnostic. Just type it into the windows 10 search cortana thing.
