Hello, I got this MSI 915P Neo2 motherboard and getting beepsounds at startup. Not the usual one "beep" but either "beep bop beep" or "beep beep". Silly to explain in writing but anyway, it sounds like that :)
I've been to the MSI site looking for info on what it could mean but unsuccesfull.
The computer runs fine except some bluescreen now and then usually when alt tabbing "out" to windows from some game. My guess is that it is the memory that is faulty somehow. Or what do you think?

Re: Beep sounds and their meaning
Check the wires around the switch plugs to make sure you wired them correctly. This often causes this problem.Double check every plug you have had to plug up to make sure it is correct including the USB plugs.
All PC do what is called a POST a Power On Self Test and emit different beeps according to the make and model of the BIOS loaded. You can check out what they mean for different BIOSes here http://www.xmission.com/~comphope/beep.htm.
This site lists the different post codes etc by the different bioses. So you will need to know what BIOS your PC is running just check the black screen at starup before any windows info comes up and look for something like AMIBIOS or AWARD etc, you can pause the screen so that you can read it more easily by pressing the pause button on your keyboard, this is normally the last key on the top row on the right.
Hope that helps

That's usually a bad ram stick. Shut down the pc & remove one stick at a time starting with the one furthest from the cpu & work your way down to the first one. When it boots without the constant "beep", you found the bad one! You can also check www.msi.com & look in the support area for a solution if mine is wrong.(I'm never wrong though,lol)
Reverse the two-pins connecting the PC Speaker to the motherboard.
This can make any "beep" much louder.
Try a different power-supply, to ensure that your current power-supply is NOT the problem.
Remove the RAM and the video-card, then start it up.
It *should* "beep" to complain about the lack of RAM and the lack of video. If not, and the power-supply is OK, then the motherboard has its own problems.
