  1. Yes, so I presume. Does it mean the cpu is damaged? Because everything so far pinpoints that. Well not necessarily (and hopefully) damaged but if it is a cpu related issue what could I possibly do? Getting a new one is unfortunately not an option for me and allegedly fixing it neither.
  2. UPDATE: I managed to find an old PSU laying around to see if the issue was with the connections, but unfortunately got the same result. It beeps five times and that is it.
  3. Thank you all for your replies. I took out the MB with the RAM, CPU and PSU and connected them on my desk. I checked and double checked every single connector. If I removed the RAM the beeps are completely different. So I presume the ram is ok. No CPU it wont turn on at all. But if I place the RAM and CPU, but I don’t plug the CPU connector, as soon as I hit the switch of the PSU all the fans will turn on, without me turning it on manually with the screwdriver. But this time there is no beep. So I presume the cables were previously connected right. Once I put every component as sho
  4. Hi there. My pc was working just fine, but I wanted to do some rewirering because it was a mess. But after I finished, and before closing the case, I checked that everything worked, just because. But when I hit the power switch, all I got were 5 beeps. I check on the manual for the meaning of those, but since it is a budget MB the printed docs are pretty much useless and all it says is a bunch of QR codes to go to the website. According to Gigabyte’s support page 5 short beeps stand for CPU error. It says nothing more. I try to check the RAM, clear the CMOS, remove the CPU, leave t
  5. Hi. A quick and Willy question: what kind of mounting screws uses my monitor? Is an Asus PB278Q. You might thing it’s dumb. And it might be.. but I “screwed” it (pun intended sorry not sorry) when I was dissembling it and missed the screws for the VESA thing. I know they’re standar and all that good stuff but when I went to a hardware store for a new set of screws for the standar vesa mounting thing they asked me what size. I thought they were a standar size but apparently I was wrong. I couldnt tell what size I needed for my display and since I lost the original ones I can’t be for sure. I c
  6. Hi. I upgraded my old 2008 iMac’s optical drive to an ssd using an adapter,, however due to... electrical failures (presumably) the ssd got damaged. After several unexpected shutdowns my Mac stopped reading/booting from the ssd. I had to reinstall the OS on the HDD but I couldn’t read the ssd not even using disk utility. then I tried it on a pc. Using hardware manager I got to detect the disk, but I needed to format it, but after severa attempts the formatting was not successful. I don’t know what can I do or what is wrong. Is there a way to fix it? Thanks
  7. Yeah... already try all of that. Tried VGA, HDMI, DVI and nothing. And the onboard speaker also worked before, but now it doesn't indicate a thing. Tried two different GPUs so I think it is safe to assume it's not a video issue
  8. To the GPU of course. I tried several cards, a radeon 7550 and a gtx970 Yes, they do. All the fans keep powered on, the CPU's, the GPU's, the PSU's and the case's. That's the only way i know it is turned on, but otherwise it does nothing
  9. My motherboard... well... the onboard graphics has not output signal at all, and I have no video even after installing a graphics card. The speaker beeps not, not even after removing the memory or the CPU. I changed the PSU as long as every other hardware just to discard a malfunction, but I have not the tools (aka another computer with the same socket/slots) to test the CPU or the Memory, but I know the motherboard is not quite dead 'cause when I turn it on the fans spin. And thats all the pc does. Any tip or advice? the mobo is a p4m900 m7 fe Biostar
  10. That's disappointing. My mobo is a z77x ud5h, my cpu an i5 2500k and my memories are DDR3 1333MHz x4 x3. It is somewhat a 5y/o machine and the mobo has been having failures for a while. I believe I'll need to replace it soon, but right now I'm in a budget situation I can't replace/upgrade any part any soon. And obviously before replacing the memory I rather replace the motherboard, but to do that I need to replace both the CPU and the memories. Pretty much I need to build a brand-new pc to the ground... So that I'd like to experiment a little with this memory. If there is any chance I could po
  11. yeah. in my particular case replacing it is not an option. I want to go farther. Is it possible to fix a dead memory
  12. Thanks for replying. Already did that. The problem is not the slot but the memory itself. I can put any other module in any slot and will work, but that particular memory wherever I place it won't work. I know now. I'm not a newbie, and I always make sure it is disconnected but reciently my motherboard's been failing so I constantly need to do the same and didn't notice I miss that step
  13. Hi. I removed the DIMMs of my system for regular maintenance, but when placing it back I accidentally pressed the onboard ON switch right beside the memory slots and the system switched on before I securely attached the memory to the slot. I know it was idiotic for me not to disconnect the power before but hey, overconfidence happens to de best of us, right? anyway now I can't make the motherboard to run with that dimm connected. If placed it will detect there's a problem and won't boot until removed. is there a way to fix that DIMM? Thanks
  14. It might sound crazy but my theory is the BIOS chip got corrupted on its own a while ago, keeping in mind I have this board since 2013. Updating the bios didn't fix it, and I would say made things even worse. Flashing the bios back to a previous version may or may not improve the The situation. What i propose is to get another bios chip to replace the old and damaged one. Just like that
  15. Well, well, welll... it happened again. I used my system last night after got it working, and turned it off this morning. When came back home the mobo couldn't get passed the POST and the debug led is stuck in "db" again.
