What could be BIOS problem


Normally my system working properly. But sometimes when i am switch on the computer,

there is no bootup beep sound. The keyboard is deducted, Monitor screen is blank, but the hard disk is detected and load the files to RAM. The indicator light in hard disk is changed from red to green. But still there is no display in the screen. Num lock indicator is glow, but i switch off that, there is no change in that state. My cabinet is ATX cabinet. So i press the OFF button continuously to switch off the computer. Sometimes i get the proper boot after this problem. Otherwise i will do the same for 2 or 3 times. What is the problem.

You need to trouble shoot the problem We know that you do not hear a single beep before the video is seen so that means that the system is not booting up properly Before the video is checked, during POST, the ROM BIOS communicates error messages with a series of beeps Each BIOS manufacturer has its own beep codes For specific beep codes for your BIOS, first look in the system board documentation or on top of the BIOS chip for the brand and version number of the BIOS Depending on the beeps you can resolve the problem.
