Windows 7: Continuous post beeping after PSU replacement

Some boards need the 8-pin connector connected, either two 4-pin Or one 8-pin. This is the EPS-12V connector near the CPU and the back I/O panel, connect both of your 4-pins there. The 4-pin for your mainpower should be with the main one.

You Sir are a god, Where did you find those I poured through that book and found nothing on those codes + rep for you!
I downloaded the manual from the Gigabyte website and the codes were listed in the FAQ's.

As Britton30 mentions above connect a 8 pin connector to the ATX 12V power connector in the picture above and a 20+4 pin Main Connector (24pins total) to the ATX main power connector.

Next I'd clear the CMOS. Using the CLR_CMOS jumper near the battery or by removing the battery.
From the manual:
Quote:
To clear the CMOS values, place a jumper cap on the two pins to temporarily short the two pins or use a metal object like a screwdriver to touch the two pins for a few seconds

Warnings
Always turn off your computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before clearing the CMOS values.
After clearing the CMOS values and before turning on your computer, be sure to remove the jumper cap from the jumper. Failure to do so may cause damage to the motherboard.
After system restart, go to BIOS Setup to load factory defaults (select Load Optimized Defaults) or manually configure
I don't think these will be the issue but for reference
From the manual again:
Quote:
To meet expansion requirements, it is recommended that a power supply that can withstand high power consumption be used (500W or greater). If a power supply is used that does not provide the required power, the result can lead to an unstable or unbootable system.
The power connectors are compatible with power supplies with 2x2 12V and 2x10 power connectors. When using a power supply providing a 2x4 12V and a 2x12 power connector, remove the protective covers from the 12V power connector and the main power connector on the motherboard. Do not insert the power supply cables into pins under the protective covers when using a power supply providing a 2x2 12V and a 2x10 power connector.
If someone you know has a PSU greater than 500W you could borrow, you could try that but I wouldn't think it would be required to just run the MB and a few fans.

If the above fails then I'm sorry to say but it sounds like your MB is stuffed, you may consider contacting Gigabyte and see what they say, they may have a better idea about the beeps.

Both of my connectors are plugged in as they should be, the 8 pin and the 20+4.

Duzzy thank you again for the help, I was thinking maybe the CMOS should be cleared as the last time this computer ran with no problems it had a PCI-E six pin in use. I thought maybe that developed a memory or something like that. As for the minimum 500W PSU, This could also be my problem because I replaced a 550W with a 450W. I recalculated with the newegg calculator and came up with a much lower requirement for what I have in this case. I don't remember why I picked the 550 it must have looked cool.

I'll reset the CMOS and see what happens. If nothing works still I probably just contact Gigabyte.

Thanks for the feedback.
As I said I think a 450W would be fine. I think there referring to higher for use with add-on cards, dvd burner etc...

I have a dodgy Gigabyte board too which developed a no POST no boot issue and I was constantly resetting CMOS. In frustration I removed all but one stick of RAM and it worked fine, shut down and put it all back.

Gigabyte support can be frustrating due to language barrier but I did finally get some useful info from them.

I reset CMOS this morning, It starts up just fine now. However I am back at my original issue as mentioned in the OP. I must have turned the video drivers off somehow. Should I make a new thread for that in the correct section or keep this one alive?

It's always best to start the new thread. You will get fresh eyes on your problem, and the eyes might belong to people who specialize in video problems.
