Thread: Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H Long Beep during XP loading

  1. #1

    Default Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H Long Beep during XP loading

    POST is fine (just the one short beep as normal)
    Loads XP Media Center Edition fine
    But when CPU is overclocked, I get one long beep during XP booting (not POST).
    I lower CPU to "Auto" speed in bios, and no more beep.
    Ran memtest to 70% and it read zero errors.
    Googled and found nothing here or elsewhere. Only hits are for beep codes - which I think are just for POST?
    Also, once it beeped with two long beeps -- But just the once.
    No red flags under event viewer. No problems that I noticed using xp. No other errors that I found.

    Phenom X3 710 Processor (Toliman
    latest (f5) bios
    antec earthwatts 380
    mushkin 996533 800 mhz 2GB pair running unganged
    Windows XP MCE version 2002 Service Pack 3
    currently running at 2.99 GHz
    CPUID says system clock running at 115 and 15% overclock, with a multiplier of 26

    As always, any help is much appreciated. Thanks to LSDme for much help in the past w/ this board!!

    it could be your psu isnt powerfull enough and its beeping because of low cpu voltage? also make sure you disable floppy boot device if you dont have a floppy drive installed

    boot order is:
    First: HDD
    Second: Disabled
    Third: Disabled

    FDD is disabled (and not present)
    I thought maybe the "no-fan alarm" was sounding, but I still get the beep after disabling the no cpu fan alarm and the no system fan alarm. It definately turns off and on depending on whether I set the CPU to overclocked or not. I can't figure it out. It's weird.
