Greetings:

I just purchased an Intel SE7500CW2 and let me tell you what a headache. When I try to boot up I get no video and I get a series of beeps in this order:

4 beeps - 3 beeps - 1 beep - 4 beeps - then it repeats

From what I found at Intel’s website is this:

4 - 3 - 4 - 1 and that means incompatible memory.

Sure enough, I put incompatible memory in and it gave me that beep sequence. I put the good memory in and it went back to the first beep code.

Now, I have been at this for over twelve hours. I tried pulling the cards, tried new video cards, monitor, and keyboard. Pretty much tried any logical troubleshooting sequence possible.

It is a dual processor motherboard with only one set of jumpers. Those jumpers are for the BIOS. I tried many different combos for that too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am about sick of Intel. The kicker is they are closed. Every number I tried calling (let me tell you, it was a lot of numbers) said they are closed till Monday. ***.

Thanks in advance for any input I mean any at all !!

The Phoenix beep code of 4-3-1 is a "replace MB" code...

Hello Everyone,

I was checking into some other websites containing BIOS beep codes and here is what I found out about the beep code I am getting.

4-3-1-4 Initialize refresh counter. Troubleshoot motherboard.

If any one has any inspiring ideas about this issue, please let me know.

Thank you,

Well, finally figured out my problem. It needs two sticks of memory. That's all. Two sticks of fricking memory. I was pretty upset when I found out about it.
