    Computer rapidly beeping on startup, help!


    Hello everyone,

    So I turned on my computer, and it started making rapid beeping noises (like the boot beep, only about 5-10 times a second). No output is displayed on the screen. If anyone could help me, I'd appreciate it very very very much. I think it's my motherboard, but I could be wrong. My motherboard is an MSI 865G Neo2-PLS. Thank you for any and all help you can offer.

    The answer depends on your BIOS version:

    Most BIOS are listed here:

    Other than that, AMIBIOS (see the last page of the document):

    Good luck!

    Could be your memory isn't making good contact. Pull it out, blow off the dust, re-insert it firmly and try again.

    beeping is a video error, is it a graphics card, or is it onboard graphics?

    I figured it out; it turns out I had accidently bumped the graphics card out of place. Thanks for your help guys!
