Question about MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum Motherboard
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?
This is normal behavior for that motherboard. The reason is something like: It beeps for each USB device plugged in. I believe the manual describes this.

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.

Hi 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
