I have a computer that boots up fine but the bios beeps are funny. Instead on one beep for normal the one beep is followed in about 5 seconds with two short beeps. Like I said it boots up and runs fine. Has anyone heard this before. Picky

Hello Picky,

Check that your video card is properly seated and check cooling fan is running all the time.

Already reseated the video card, and there is no fan just a heat sink on this PCI video card.

Try removing all conections and leaving the board for all power etc to drain, clear the CMOS with the jumper and see how that goes.

I tried that awhile back, I set the board to default with the jumper with no power added. Could this be a fluke and this board has been running for a long time like this. I just got curious about the extra beeps.
