    Default ASRock H77 Pro4-M alarm or beeping sound in Windows 8

    Hi folks - I recently built a home server (9 hard drives, using FlexRaid) in Windows 8. I'm a relative newbie a this but things went pretty smoothly until recently. Last week, randomly and occasionally, a loud alarm sound (a long continuous beeeeeeeeep) would start. I wouldn't stop and I would have to reboot the box. Then over the last few days, the alarm would start as soon as the box is booted and reaches Windows. I've been running it headless, so I attached it to a screen so I could see if there were any errors during bootup, there's none. Windows still seems to operate fine, but the nonstop beep sound is there. I've been poking around through the manual and haven't found a possible cause. I thought maybe some overheating, but I have the sides off the case and it's sitting in the open and the beep starts right away. I'm at a bit of a loss. Like I said, I'm mostly a newbie but I'm pretty good at following directions if anyone has an idea. Thanks!

    And yet you mention nothing of temps. What are your temps?

    Did you plug in a pc speaker onto the MB's System Panel Header? Or could this beep be generated from another source?

    So that us other Users here know what you have there system-wise, please go HERE, scroll down and fill in the "System Specs' and select Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

    Hi wardog, thanks for the reply.
    System temp as report by SpeedFan is 29C, all other temps at 30C.
    No speakers plugged in anywhere, figured since this was a server, no need.
    I filled out my specs a bit more. As I was looking at the hardware in the rig, my wife, of all people, said something interesting. She pointed out that the beeping only started "when you added those other drives". She's talking about the last 4 I added and connected to the HighPoint RocketRAID 2720SGL card I have in there. I'm not even using this as real RAID but rather JBOD and then pooling them with FlexRaid in Win8. I have the drives connected with this power cable Amazon.com: StarTech.com 4x SATA Power Splitter Adapter Cable (PYO4SATA): Electronics and then that's connected to an available slot on the power supply cable. So out of curiosity, I unplugged this cable I'm using Amazon.com: Mini SAS To 4 SATA Cable: Computers & Accessories and voila, no beeping after starting up. I guess it's not the motherboard after all, but possibly something on the RocketRAID card beeping for some unknown reason. Any thoughts are still very welcome, but it doesn't seem like this is an ASRock issue.

    I figured it was the RAID card, when I saw that in your system specs.

    I would suggest checking the cards manual for circumstances that cause the boards alarm to sound. Could be anything from a real or perceived disk failure, to the card over heating.

    Once this cause is remedied there, config (and test!) the email alerts so in the future you get a notification email. Peace of mind.
