Motherboard Beeps?

By shadow ·
Hi,
I'm trying to see if anyone could give me a list of common error codes that the internal speaker produces on hardware error. Specifically, I'm looking for what corresponds to one long beep followed by two short ones. I'm assuming it's a processor error, but I wanted to get a second opinion. Besides, it'd be helpful to know the other beep sequences.

According to "Upgrading and Repairing PCs", one long and two short is for the display adapter. I had this happen when I was having problems with a video card a while back.

The actual beep codes are dependant upon what BIOS manufacturer you have. If you have a proprietary machine (HP, Dell, micron, etc) the beep codes are specific to the motherboard bios. For generic boards contact award.com or phoenix.com for their bios beep codes, or check this link for a lot of generic manufacturers. http://sysopt.earthweb.com/mboard.html

Or try http://www.hardwarecentral.com

Just giving the beep code without knowing the type of bios is not very helpful. What one manufacturer's beep code means is not what another manufacturer's beep code means.

Hope this helps.
