I guess its the on board front audio speaker thing....I was playing around in BIOS(yeah dumb of me, but Im trying to learn...with no help or anything :p) Anyways, I dont even remmeber the exact abbreviations/acronyms, but it was something in Memory. I remmeber I had set it to 800Mhz once. And foolishly enough I remembered timing...I go to the same page and there are 4 acronym things all on auto..I though why not manually switch timings in there to 3-4-4-15. (Both are my memory) Im seriously guessing since im new to custom PCs, that maybe increasing the voltage of the memory wouldve helped..anyways Im getting a black screen with the 2 beepings every 2-3 seconds apart. I remember reading some where beeping = memory :P besides those are what I messed with anyhow..is that what I really did wrong, no increase in voltage?
So now Im trying to figure out how to get to BIOS, or even flash it somehow(I dont even see POST, just black screen) And I'd keep it on but the beeping scares me(maybe its explode :p) My motherboard, Asus 570 M2N-SLI DELUXE AM2. Im reading the manual now and will try online help.
If it is a newer pc... Pull the Cmos battery out and let it sit for a few minutes. Then slide it back in and that should bring you back to default. DO NOT fool around with your bios unless you have something to work from. There are many pc manuals out there and sites to look at.
There are just some things you shouldn't mess with, timings are one of them. Overclocking is the other. Both of which it seems, you have done.
well I wasnt really over clocking :\ My memory is set to 800Mhz and that 3-4-4-15 timing, I guess I did something wrong while trying to make it work up to standards its supposed to :P But I agree with you, I shouldnt mess around without reading and doing homework....
Anyways I was thinking about taking out the battery but didnt think it would work..thanks.
you gotta admitt when you started working with PCs you were too eager to get into it and did something wrong :p
No actually, i wasn't... I spent soo much money building my first build i didn't want to screw it up. lol
I had 5 different build guides including the standard paperwork with each piece i needed. And a couple of friends in chat on ICQ on my laptop. Soo no... I waited till i knew more about it before i messed with it.
I have built 35 builds since then ranging from p3 to amd dual core.
lol ok cool :p well I still dont think im the first one to jump into the deep end like that lol. I'll look more into fixing my memory's timing online.
Beeping on reboot are POST codes. You tried to kill your computer, and now it's trying to communicate with you. RTFM for your motherboard. It will (or should) tell you how to decipher POST codes.
You don't need to remove the CMOS battery, however. Flip the power switch on your PSU (to 'OFF') and then push the power button on the computer. It will briefly power up for a second; this the computer sucking up whatever charge is left in the PSU's caps. Now, switch the CMOS jumper from 'normal' to 'reset' or 'clear' (again, RTFM). Let it sit for 30-45 seconds. Move the jumper back and power back on. Your BIOS will be restored to the default configuration.
Believe me, this is usually much easier (and safer for the mobo) than trying ot yank the CMOS battery.
3-4-4-15 is too tight (low). Even the best 800MHz memory normally lies somewhere between 4-4-4-12 and 5-5-5-15. I assume you've already done what Merrick said (or what C said, same thing different method), but if you haven't then do it. :p
my fingers are too fat C to do the jumpers :rofl:Battery is the next best thing. lol

This is why pliers were invented ;)
nooo.. those we meant to be stuck INTO the motherboard when you miss.
I hear what you are saying: Proper procedure and all.... but what can you do.
