I turned on "Auto Overclock" using the BIOS and when I saved and exited my computer would not turn on. It would just keep trying to boot up. So I reset the BIOS by switching the JBAT1 pin to 2-3 and back to 1-2 pin (also removing and placing the CMOS battery). Now my computer boots up but with no picture and does 4 short beeps then a few seconds later 2 long beeps. I found very little info on these beep codes and how to fix it. Any help would be great! Thank-you

Dont use auto overclocking settings.

Figure out settings on your own and overclock yourself next time. Are you sure its 4-2? There is no code for that combination.

Yup, 100% positive. For some odd reason every once in awhile it will actually boot up and not beep. It will then stop at a screen saying "CMOS setting Wrong" and "CMOD Date/Time not set". I have the choice to press F1 to load setup or F2 to load default setting (which I need a flash drive with default settings on it to do so). When I press F1 it brings me to the BIOS but then freezes shorty after.

Do you have your motherboard manual? It should say the post codes in there

Try removing the battery on the board and removing power from your system for a couple mins. Then try to boot.

I dunno too much about beep codes, but could you be getting two? Or is one beep a regualar system one. (my old motherboard used to beep once on startup all the time)

You could be on to something...my motherboard does beep once when starting up normally. I removed the battery and did as kow_ciller said. I was able to get into the BIOS and change the date and time, save then exit. But now it keeps going into BIOS recovery mode and asks for a flash drive, which I do not have. It still does the beeps aswell.

Post beep is one beep and thats it.

If you can get into the bios, set some settings that will work.

Set boot sequence , go through all the settings, first set to bios defaults, reboot into bios again, right away. Then set things back to what you know.reboot If things get weird, remove all the stuff from your system, reboot back into bios,turn off and unplug, then add the drives (plug all connections back in) then add the vid card, (or vid card first, then do the rest one at a time. Every time I unplug things or change things on the motherboards, in bios these days, it keeps the old setting for PNP.So the only way I stopped it was to do as above. I used to have a "reset PNP" my new system don't have that, but even my old system, just changing the slot , or unplug and reconnect anything, it seems to want to redo all that it found, even if I inserted a card back in the same dang slot. But I think now all you have to do is change boot sequence.

It won't let me in BIOS long enough before it freezes in order to change anything. I tried taking everthing out. Is it possible the BIOS got corrupt? Please don't say those 2 evil words "Bad Mobo"!!

Sounds like the bios is on its way out if it crashes in-bios.

I wont say those two words, but thats what it sounds like if you cant even post. RMA time!
