Question about Motherboards
I bought a new GB mobo (ga-g31mx-s2) and everything worked fine till I updated the chipset drivers - since then BIOS has been giving inconsistent beep codes on start-up... Sometimes I just get the single beep that means everything's working, sometimes I get the code telling me my keyboard isn't detected (even though it is - works just fine), sometimes the code telling me my graphics card isn't installed properly (but it is - works great), sometimes I just get one long unending beep that won't go away till I turn of the PC. I've talked w/Gigabyte's tech support and they told me to test it without peripherals and with only one stick of RAM - did that and still had the problem (tested it in steps - one stick of RAM, then two, then added a peripheral such as keyboard, then mouse, then one drive then another, then ethernet, and so on...). I've tried both the latest drivers and the original drivers that came w/the mobo (on disc), I've flashed the BIOS, I've tried everything I can think of. Gigabyte is telling me I'll just have to RMA it and get a replacement, but that would leave me without a PC for far too long. If you have any experience with this sort of thing, I'd greatly appreciate teh help!
Try this: open the system restore utility (built-in with win XP if you have this OS), then select a date before you updated chipset drivers. Everything should come back the way it was...it really is a WINDOWS problem that is trying to talk to BIOS but can't for some reason.

Check your cpu fan. See if it is spinning during POST.
