5 long beeps on startup problem

 Share

Go to solution Solved by Stalker_PY,

it is solved guys, it was a bad memory after all, today i went to the place where i bought the memory and they tested with another memory (same type)  and it works perfectly now

 

so you know now, if you have 5 long beeps with your gigabyte motherboard it is problably the ram

 

thanks for all the answer

 

 

hello guys today I bought a new computer for my father because his old computer stopped working, and he uses his computer just for youtube and listend to music so i bought a pretty budget pc

 

This Ona:
Intel g4400 Dual-Core 3.30GHz
Gigabyte GA-H110M-S2PH (https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-H110M-S2PH-rev-10#ov)
Cucial ddr4 2133mhz
Satellite case with power supply included
I used the old hard drive

 

So I intalled al the parts and when i start the computer i have 5 long beeps and the pc turn off then turn on and again I have 5 long beeps again and simply repeats that process

 

I have to say that the motherboard came with 8pins-12v connectors for the cpu and the cheap power supply that came with the case only have 4pins-12v so i dont know if that is the problem, but i really doubted if it is that, because that cpu is only a dual core, I dont think it really needs that much power, but I dont really know so if im wrong you can correct me

 

Well in case that is not the problem, i searched on internet for this problem and the only i can find is that it is a cpu problem or the ram it is not well seated in the socket 

 

I taked out the cpu to see if there is some bent pins and there is definitly no bent pins

 

I reseated the ram like 4 times in all slots and either nothing


could someone help me please because at this point i runned out of ideas (the only think that is left is the psu, that i dont have another to tested)

pull the ram out entirely then start the machine , if it beeps the same the ram may not be compatible

It needs a 8 pin. ram don't cause 5 long beeps.

To add on, it doesn't seem like Gigabyte even uses 5 long beeps as a beep code. There is 5 short beeps, and that's real time clock malfunction.

While each have their own type of beep codes. Almost all of them still continue to use the old school standard. Fauly ram will cause continuous short beeps.

I looked in gigabyte page the supported memory ram and the "module pin" of my ram is CT4G4DFS8213.C8FDD2 and i dont see that one in the list but there is one that is pretty similar that is CT4G4DFS8213.C8FAR1

 

I dont know is it is that or those last numbers makes no difference

 

I also tried turning on without the memory and i have the same 5 long beeps

are you going to pull the ram out entirely or not bother trying at all

troubleshooting is a waste of time until you get a proper power supply.

 

you need all 8 pins, end of story.  while true, it MIGHT not fix it, nothing else is even worth trying until you actually have the board properly powered

well I'll try to get one of the psu from my other computer and try that way so I remove that possibility

 

and if someone wonder how are the beeps they are exactly like the one in this video

you really don't , a 4pin in an 8pin socket will work outside of high end cpu's. it should be an 8pin on a higher end cpu but that 4400 will be fine.

the ram may have a compatibility issue then

however , the integrated gpu on the cpu might be at fault as well. I have a seen a few boards that specify that sometimes the igpu isn't supported and you need to use a graphics card.

The one thing I would try , fire up the board with no cpu installed. In theory , without a cpu installed , the board will give NO beep code at all. If the cpu is compatible the board is then able to process that no ram is installed and will give your 5 beep code for no ram.

this should at least determin if the cpu is at fault or not.

im aware that it "works" as long as youve got a shitty cpu, and not overclocking

but its still out of spec. and if something doesnt work, and you know for a fact its not configured properly, then regardless of whether or not it "should work" the very first step should always be, get it properly in spec.

 

5 short beeps is usually a cpu issue. (i cant watch the video to see just how long they are)

they're real long , if that helps

 

if you flip an 8 pin board over , the 8 pins are all soldered together into 2 lines. Honestly it really SHOULD work with 4. The idea of 8 pins is to meet power ratings for the minimum wire gauge that might be plugged in but he should be fine.

Glad to have found this thread!  This thread helped me resolve my 5 long beeps issue with my Gigabyte GA-B150M-D3H M/B.

 

<< My Problem >>

  5 long beeps followed by reboot, in a loop.  This occurs under the following setup:

    - CUP + RAM (initially setup).

    - CPU, No RAM

 

<< Resolution >>

  ANS: Re-seated RAM

 

<< Conclusion >>

  - 4 pin in an 8pin socket will work

  - 5 beeps could be CPU or RAM issue

  - Gigabyte DOES use 5 long beeps as a beep code - for CPU or RAM error
