Having problems with your IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221 PC Desktop ?

Post codes I have an IBM Intellistaton Z Pro 6221 what when turned on now only has 3 long beeps that keeps repeating. I can't find what this post code is. Any suggestions?


Answers :

Dely with this earlier today (else why would I be here?) I tracked the beep codes through the labyinthine IBM support and basically got no answer. This is what IBM said in the "Troubleshooting POST/Startup" manual
 Beep code  3-3-3
Description : No operational memory in the system. Attention: In some memory configurations, the 3-3-3 beep code might sound during POST followed by a blank display screen. If this occurs and the Boot Fail Count feature in the Startup Option menu of the Configuration/Setup Utility program is set to Enabled (its default setting), you must restart the computer three times to force the system BIOS to reset the memory connector from Disabled to Enabled.
Action
1. If you just installed memory, make sure that the new memory is correct for your computer. 2. Make sure that the DIMMs are installed in pairs; then, restart the computer. 3. Reseat the DIMMs. 4. Replace the following components one at a time, in the order shown, restarting the computer each time: a. DIMMs b. (Trained service technician only) System board
What I did was similar to you, pulled everything in sight and tried after each item pulled. No Go.
Then one DIMM, then the other. Still no go...
Here's what got it up. Pulled both DIMMs, power on. Nothing ...then replaced the DIMMs in the OTHER TWO slots. BIOS recognized and the 6221 "Z" is up and running. 
I haven't put the DIMM back in the original slots yet but intend to try. 
I think the cause was a sudden power fluctuation yesterday early, early, AM, with a possible spike as well. My wife's PC also went haywire and I lost data that was in the swap file on a third.
Hope this helps, and that you won't need new RAM ...Good luck..
Open your CPU cabinet. You see there RAM chip (DDR or SD )Dissconnect it from Motherboard. Clean it and if two chips are there alternate there positions otherwise connect it as it is. It wll solve your problem

Hi there. I have a problem with my Thinkpad T30 type 2366, for which I would appreciate any suggestions to rectify. A few days ago, I booted it up but, instead of it doing so, it emitted a series of beeps and then 'hung' there with a blank screen. The beep pattern was as follows: BEEEEP--BEEP-BEEP-BEEP--BEEP-BEEP-BEEP--BEEEEP. I.e., 1 long beep, 3 short ones, 3 further short ones and then 1 long one. Looking on the net, I saw a post that suggested removing the battery, then pressing the on/off b

I have an Asus p4s533-mx motherboard which boots and runs fine (sometimes). But when I perform a warm boot, it often won't pass POST. The beep code is one long and two short. If I power it down and let it sit for awhile, it will start up OK, but it enters SETUP. I exit SETUP with no changes and it starts OK.


The response from ASUS tech support - It's a standard Award BIOS, so they're the standard beep codes.So I wrote the following on page 3-4 of my user guide:1 long + 2 short = Video adaptor error1 long + 3 short = No video ... PC Desktops
