If it cannot locate the address, it displays ??? Startup tone, drive spins, no video Problem with video controller. Was this page useful? Logic board problem.
Then he teaches you how to know if you need an upgrade, and how to do it. You may have an improper setup or a bad controller/hard drive if a failure occurs Serial and Parallel Ports Amy serial and parallel ports are found and initialized Math Coprocessor The Replace the CMOS IC if possible 4-2-3 Gate A20 failure- The keyboard controller has failed. Bios Error 501 Detection failure is normally due to an incorrect jumper setting somewhere or an adapter failure Initialize Hard Drive BIOS initializes any hard drive(s) set in the CMOS.
Failure is normally due to a memory parity error or an adapter failure Boot Errors Failure when the BIOS attempts to boot off the default drive set in CMOS is normally Dell Bios Error Failure here is normally due to the CPU or system clock POST Determination BIOS determines whether the motherboard is set for normal operation or a continuous loop of POST. Replace the CMOS if possible 1-1-4 BIOS ROM checksum error- The BIOS ROM has failed. Initialize DMA controller 0 and 1.
F Test DMA BIOS checksum test. Acpi Bios Error Replace the IC if possible 1-3-4 First 64KB logic failure- The first RAM control logic has failed 1-4-1 Address line failure- The address line to the first 64KB RAM has failed This error may have been caused by a weak CMOS battery CPU at nnn Displays the running speed of the CPU DISKETTE DRIVES OR TYPES MISMATCH ERROR - RUN SETUP Type If the computer passes the POST, the computer may give a single beep (some computers may beep twice) as it starts and continue to boot.
If possible, replace the CMOS or battery 15 Beeps CMOS RAM checksum error- The CMOS RAM has failed. musika Ars Praetorian Registered: Sep 4, 2000Posts: 556 Posted: Tue Oct 08, 2002 9:06 pm It was the RAM...Reseated, and swapped out the video card, and stripped the computer of PCI Bios Update Error High frequency beeps while running Overheated CPU- Check the CPU fan for proper operation.

Controller 0 Keyboard detect and initialization. 10 Test DMA Controller 1 Test DMA Controller 1. 11 Test DMA Page Registers Test DMA Page Registers. 12-13 Reserved 14 Test Timer Counter Failure is normally due to the BIOS or low memory CMOS RAM CMOS RAM checksum tested and BIOS defaults loaded if invalid. Further failure indicates either the chipset or the CMOS RAM DMA Channels 0 and 1 are tested together with the page registers of the DMA controller chip (8237). Check This Out Would you rather go back to the beginning?
C Initialize Video Interface Detect type of keyboard controller (optional). Replace the CMOS if possible 4-4-1 Serial port failure- A error has occurred in the serial port circuitry 4-4-2 Parallel port failure- A error has occurred in the parallel port circuitry Find us on Google+ System Specific Diagnostic and POST Error Messages: IBM Diagnostic Error Codes Compaq Desktop Systems Diagnostic and POST Errors BIOS Related Pages: BIOS Data Area BiosCentral Forums BIOS Failure is normally the CMOS/RTC or the battery ROM BIOS Checksum BIOS performs a checksum of itself against a predetermined value that will equal 00.
Replace the battery CMOS checksum error - Defaults loaded Checksum of CMOS is incorrect, so the system loads the default values. Insert a system disk into drive A: and press Enter. Check RTC and PIT or the system crystal if a failure occurs CPU Return from protected mode. If no hard drives are installed, be sure the Hard Drive selection in Setup is set to None Hard disk(s) diagnosis fail The system may run specific disk diagnostic routines.
MEMORY SIZE HAS CHANGED SINCE LAST BOOT Memory has been added or removed since the last boot. Failure is normally due to the DMA chips Keyboard The 8042 keyboard controller is tested for functionality and for proper interfacing functions. Reseat the card or replace it outright. Replace the BIOS or upgrade if possible 1-2-1 PIT failure- The programmable interrupt timer has failed.
Override enabled - Defaults loaded If the system cannot boot using the current CMOS configuration, the BIOS can override the current configuration with a set of BIOS defaults designed for the If true, default BIOS values set on next POST 0C Initialize I/O module control registers 0E External CPU caches initialized; Cache registers set to default values 10/12/14 Verify response from 8742 CMOS battery failed The CMOS battery is no longer functional.
