    Default System Beeps

    Hi all.

    I have the EP35C-DS3R.

    Now, since I didn't actually record this [], here's what I "think" it sounded like:

    I started my computer from a cold boot, and instead of getting that one successful system beep, I got a continuous series of them right in a row.

    I think they were a series of short beeps all in a row. As soon as it did this series of beeps, I hear the system power down (it gets quiet for a moment, no fans spinning, etc.)......and then the system powers back up, I hear that one successful beep, and the system boots just fine into my desktop.

    I looked in my MB manual to read about those system beeps. Up above where I said I think they were short the manual, it mentions both continuous short and long beeps.

    Could mine have been a series of continuous long beeps? I suppose.....but I guess it depends upon your definition of what a long beep sounds like


    Continuous long beeps is: Graphics card not inserted properly
    Continuous short beeps is: Power error

    If they were in-fact long beeps (graphics card), then would my system have booted eventually at all? If my graphics card wasn't seated properly, then I would not have eventually gotten an image on-screen, correct? And remember like I said: After this series of beeps, the system shut down by itself, was quiet for a moment, and then booted fine successfully, with that one beep.

    If they were in-fact short beeps (power error), then would that mean my PSU itself is going "bad". It's a pretty good one, a Corsair 750 watt.

    But if my PSU was bad, would the system have booted again right away like I described that it did?

    What do you think?

    Any thoughts or ideas?

    Yes please we can better help you if you fill in your PC specs or but a detailed list of your hardware in your forum sig.

    as for the the peeps a short beep would be BEEP. A long beep would BEEEEEEEEEEEEP. and it should be a code either BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP for 3 short beeps or BEEEEEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEP FOR 3 long beeps. So in other words you should hear a beep then a pause then a beep then a pause then you would have to take note long or short beep and how many beeps did you hear?
