    Lightbulb Long Single Beep, no issues so far

    Hi,

    Last week i upgraded my PC, added in the mobo, cpu, ram, cooler, and SSD. So far its been a good build, i made this after 7 years so i'm not too sure on what to check. This is the issue, once or twice in a day or two the PC boots up with a single long beep and it has only happened twice so far, i havent been able to get a look at the error code(if any) on the mobo error displays..i do play games like guild wars 2 and stuff, but never had a BSOD or shut downs so far. So i am still concerned on any issues which might crop up..what should i start with?

    Might be one of your cards isn't making good contact all the time. Could try cleaning the contacts with an eraser.
