    does it beep when you are in reverse? if so, **** your gears to Nutral or Drive. almost all trucks make that sound when in reverse but no many cars do that.

    I have a 93' pontiac firebird and I get no beeping sound when Im backing out of my garage. :snip:

    You did'nt say if you actually had a problem and if so what? However if your just wondering about the post beep, it just a semi-long beep on your bootup process to let you know that everything is okydoky. If'n you've wonderering what the Bios Post Errors consortium are. Can give you some of the more important one here, but as there are at least 26 ( some extras on older and indifferent boards)

    one beep--dram refresh failure (faulty circuitry on motherboard)

    two beeps--parity circuit failure in your base memory (lower 64k block)

    three beeps--complete base 64k RAM failure

    four beeps--system #1 timer has failed or may be temporaily malfuntioning

    five beeps--CPU has produced an error or could mean complete processor failure

    six--keyboard controller problems, meaning bios can't switch your CPU into protected mode( running vitual)

    seven--processor interrupt failure

    eight--R/W memory test failure or video adapter is missing (non fatal)

    nine--ROM-bios checksum failure (idication of dead bios-ROM)
    ten--CMOS memory R/W shut down failure

    eleven--external cache error or is bad

    Combo beep codes
    two short beeps--post failure

    one long & two short beeps--video failure
    a)video bios-ROM failure
    b)video adapter failure

    one long & three beeps--video failure
    a)video DAC has failed
    b)the monitor detection process has failed
    c)video RAM has failed

    NOTE* Don't confuse single beep with the regular everything's normal beep with memory failure; if'n your running okydoky, you don't have a memory problem. Length of beeps can vary with manufactures.

    Hope this helps
