    Default ASRock FM2A75 Pro-4-M 5 Beeps at POST

    Hi, I'm in the process of rebuilding my HTPC and am starting with the FM2A75 Pro-4-M 5 as the base. Everything is assembled and I can boot. However, I am getting 5 beeps at boot and have been unable to track down what that means. ASRocks site directed me here, so my question is is anyone here familiar with that code?

    Thanks!

    Hello and Welcome.

    Have you entered the BIOS and specified which video, PCI(-e) or APU, you're using?

    Also, please go HERE, scroll down and fill in the "System Specs' so that we know what you have there system-wise.

    Hey, thanks wardog. I don't have my discreet card installed at the moment (Radeon 7750), and am trying to get it working with just the APU. I can boot get into the BIOS fine, and have even started to install Windows 7. Unfortunately the install random crashes, so I have a hunch something is going on in the hardware.

    Check your memory with MemTest86+.

    Also, double check the video card is fully seated.

    It's crashing even when the APU is being used?

    I'm only using the APU at the moment, so the discrete card isn't a variable right now. I fired up memtest86+ and do see something kind of odd. It sees the RAM as 320Mhz DDR640 running with a CAS timing of 1-3-3-3. It also thinks is only DDR2. I'm going to grab a couple sticks out of my main desk top and throw it in there and see what happens.

    Nevermind, memtest86+ sees my known good RAM from my main box as DDR2 as well. It must not be able to recognize DDR3. I just realized I could update the BIOS from within the BIOS itself so I am going to give that a try. I'm a few versions behind.

    Oh happy days! Looks like the new BIOS fixed what ever was causing the beep. Plus they fixed the BIOS GUI, which was awful. Thank you for taking the time to lend a hand wardog!

    NP, glad you're running there.

    Nothing like a new build with issues.
