md8818 with msi ms 7318 ver 1.1 long beeping

hi,

i have this old pc which beeps all the time. Long continues beeping. On the hdmi i dont get any startup screen. I have replaced the ram, to a crucial 2gb,  and graphics card , to a radeon hd 5450, that i believe are working as they are purchased recently. A new cmos battery has been inserted.

However,

PC keeps beeping and i must look at other troubleshooting. Can you suggest any?

I believe there is a capacitor that shines. On the board it states ec23, see https://www.mupload.nl/img/xx0tbxye.jpg . EDIT: the shining cap is marked with arrows here : https://www.mupload.nl/img/h0xpszlb.jpg  . On page 12 of msi_ms-7318_rev_100_sch.pdf , ec23 can be found - is ec23 related to dvi/graphics?. I havent yet released screws and unsoldered but could this cap be causing problems? Other advice?

Hi @tvviewer1 ,

 

can you please inform the MSN number of your product?

Also, can you tell how many beeps you hear?

 

Regards,

Re: md8818 with msi ms 7318 ver 1.1 long beeping

Hi @tvviewer1 ,

 

the MSN number is an 8-digits number, normally starting by 300 or 500, that you have printed in the label underneath your product.

 

Those beeps are they emitted in specific intervals? For instance always Y beeps at a time, repeating every x seconds or is it beeping irregularly the whole time?

 

Regards,

Gehringer

The pc was bought in denmark. There is an 8-digit s/n code : 20033290 . Another code is 447301MEDDK. Modell: pc mt 8. Typ: MED MT 461. EAN: 25089530.

The beeps are the same all the time and they probably continue forever until turning off. They are regular beeps like : beeeeep..pause..beeeeep..pause..beeeeep and so on.
