Troubleshooting
Well, I posted this a few minutes ago explaining everything in detail, but for some reason my post got deleted before google could do a cache of it. I have 4 LGA socket 775 motherboards, 4 775 processors, and 4 ram sticks. All are different brands, from different venders. On all of them, whenever i hit the psu switch on the power supply (not case) the computer turns on by itself. No video. If I remove ram it has a series of long beeps (again turning on by itself). If I remove the processor it doesn't do anything.... What could be causing this? Is a processor required for the computer to turn on? Does the beeping indicate the processor is working correctly?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

a processor is required when you turn on a motherboard and the beeping pertains to “POST” audio error codes these varies from manufacturers motherboard, removing the RAM causes the long beeping sound you hear but if your concern about having an output did you try other video card adapter,another thing that causes of non output on video card,when putting it make sure you disable the onbaord video card adapter embedded on the motherboard on the BIOS setup from another reason try using one memory on the board it to disect it,these also may be a case of faulty RAM ..just try to boot from the bios just to see wether it would proceed to a normal “POST” if your a beeping then theres your hint of the problem its just matter of disecting it

  • The beeps only happen when I remove the memory. I'm pretty sure the long beeps indicate it can't find the ram (because I removed it)

  • 3 of the motherboards have onboard video, one doesn't. Same result with all of them. I have tried 3 other memory sticks all from different manufacturers. 1 of the motherboards is ddr and the other 3 are ddr2. I only get beeps when everything is in except for the memory. Even than it still turns on by itself... What would cause all these to turn on by themselves?

    In the Bios is usually a setting...Revert to last state after power loss. By shutting off the power supply switch you are causing a power loss.

    did try to discharging the static from the motherboard by holding removing the connector from the power going to the motherboard then press the power button for 5mins then relased it, then hook-up the power supply going to the motherboard by the way what kind of pwoer supply does your motherboard has ATX?be specific at this one. the next step is is the RAM have the same speed cycles?regardless of the size of it. make sure your using the same RAM you cant mixed a DDR rams w/ DDR2 rams on the same motherboards
