If you are getting a single BEEP when the computer is starting up, this is normal. The BEEP is just a audible signal that the computer has done a hardware check and everything is OK. The computer then boots into windows.

Any other combinations of BEEPS means the computer has a problem. A freind who can hear the BEEPS would help you find out what the problem is.

If you are getting a beep code after the computer boots into windows it is a program causing the BEEP. Start-run, type in "msconfig"(without the quotes)will get you to where you can stop programs from running one at a time until you find the program that is causing the beep.

well, the reason why i asked is i went through the malaware guide on geeks to go to a T...and been successful at removing the virus. and been doing okay, til yesterday...gotten blue screen of death for no apparent reason, so i am assuming something to do with hardware...considering i did take out the cmos battery out to completely wipe and 100% format as i have read that virinut type of virus which is very difficult to recover from. Since then, i been looking into to find the drivers for the motherboard from biostar, phoenix technologies to no avail or understanding those drivers which i wished it did explain how to use the new drivers and where to do it. i did check, however for some reason it wouldn't let me do the bio flash, i did try follow but then i look in bios setup ..i did not see anywhere where it says bio flash feature i did see upgrade bios but requires floppy drive (had never really used the floppy drive and did disable it)...so thats why i asked about the beep thing and the legacy drivers to see if i really need it or not, then again i dont have speakers or anything like that for my hearing friend to be able to hear it? or is that a given automatic without the speakers? even at this moment , im considering to replace motherboard that have a firewall built-in on the motherboard as a last resort.
