Question about Gigabyte Core 2 Quad Intel X48 FSB 1600 DDR2-1200 A&2GbE ATX MB-X48-DQ6 GAX48DQ6 Motherboard

2 Answers

Hi there, So, my problem is the following: My pc worked well until i changed my cpu cooler, it didint turn on, i hear only two short bips after i pushed the turn on button (during this the leds are flashing and the fans are running for a moment) then it looks like it turns off. After that this (without pushing any button) it occurs again, and again until I shut down the powersupply. Any suggestion?

    You were right, after the CPU was seated properly there were no problem at all.

    (That was the last thing I did, replaced almost everything, tried with and without HDD/GPU/Optical drive but right now it is working fine at least!)

    Thanks for the help!

    ps.: I was wrong, not my motherboard was beeping but my zalman zm mfc2 fan controller

The Gigabyte User Manual indicates the follow error codes upon startup;


The following Award BIOS beep code descriptions may help you identify possible computer problems.

(For reference only.)

1 short: System boots successfully

2 short: CMOS setting error

1 long, 1 short: Memory or motherboard error

1 long, 2 short: Monitor or graphics card error

1 long, 3 short: Keyboard error

1 long, 9 short: BIOS ROM error

Continuous long beeps: Graphics card not inserted properly
Continuous short beeps: Power error

Based Upon the information that you have given, the error would appear to be a CMOS setting error.

To clear the CMOS values on this motherboard, this is done by removing the battery:


1. Turn off your computer and unplug the power cord.

2. Gently remove the battery from the battery holder and wait for one minute.

(Or use a metal object like a screwdriver to touch the positive and

negative terminals of the battery holder, making them short for 5 seconds.)

3. Replace the battery.
4. Plug in the power cord and restart your computer.

Sounds like the CPU may not be seated properly, did you remove the processor when you replaced the cooler (Heatsync I assume you mean)?
Try powering down and unplugging. removing the heat sync removing the processor. Re-seating the processor making sure it falls into place. then re add the thermal paste(if needed) and heat sync. Check the memory and video card to make sure they are firmly in and then power back on and see if it will boot.
Another thing you can do is check your motherboards manual or website and there is a description of "beep codes" that you can listen for yours and see exactly what its telling you is wrong.
Good luck

My system suddenly hang when we restart it, monitor does not get any signal. After when we get rid hard drive motherboard was working. on other system my HDD is working fine.


This is usually dust clogging up the CPU cooler.
When the owner of the PC forgets to clean the fins and the fan of the CPU cooler it plugs up with dust and dirt and looks like the inside of a vacuum cleaner.
There is not enough airflow and thus not enough cooling, so the CPU overheats and the safety circuit shuts the CPU off until it cools down, and the CPU will not reboot the PC until it is cool enough that the safety circuit can reset.

First step remove the CPU fan and check the fins of the CPU cooler. If they are clean, the problem is usually somewhere else.

My VGC-LT23E makes one log bip followed by 2 bips when I turn the PC on and nothing gets displayed on the screen. I can hear the hard drive but nothing gets displayed?


This would indicate a video display card problem. Since the VGC-LT23E is an integrated system; this could be difficult to track down without professional intervention.

Computer just turnoff suddenly


Could be one of two most common problems?
#1
Have you ever replaced the CPU Cooler (Heatsink/fan)?
CPU Cooler fan may be working, Heatsink dirty.
CPU is over-heating = mainboard turns off
Replace CPU Cooler
#2
Power Supply fan not working causing partial failure on 5volt or 12volt side.
Replace Power Supply

There are more causes but these are most common for short-time boot problems.
Another could be hard-drive, but that wouldn't shut system down like first two would.

Non si vede niente dal monitor


tre bip lunghi potrebbe essere un problema della tastiera.
Nessun bip = difetto di alimentazione, problema alla CPU o alla scheda madre, periferiche in blocco.
* Un bip = tutto funziona normalmente.
* Due bip = errore POST/CMOS.
* Un bip lungo ed uno breve = problema con la scheda madre.
* Un bip lungo e due brevi = problema video.
* Un bip lungo e tre brevi = problema video.
* Tre bip lunghi = errore tastiera.
* Lunghi bip ripetuti = errore di memoria.
* Brevi bip ripetuti = difetto di alimentazione, problema alla scheda madre.
* Continui alti e bassi bip = surriscaldamento CPU.

Could a faulty fan cause my pc not to switch on


Normally the computer will still come on even if the fan is not there but then will sometime display cpu fan warning and then sometimes turn off depending on motherboard and so on but unless the fan wires are shorted out or something this is most likely not the case

It sounds like your power supply has gone bad
Do you hear any type of winning sound or like a discharge sound that is barely noticeable when you turn it on? You would probably almost have to put your ear right next to it to hear it or listen carefully when you press power because that sound is one of the capacitors in the power supply that has gone bad and the power supply would need to be replaced

Do you have another power supply you can use to see if it works with a different one?

No boot, continuous Beep


I would take the CPU back out. Remove the excess thermal compound, you should only use a very thin layer. Make sure the CPU is oriented and seated properly.
