first hit googling "bios beep codes".... but to be fair these can vary... might be a good starting point though.
Oh, thanks you post codes, it's great help. My copmuter recently also has a problem. Sometimes it beep 1 long and 3short and the displayer doesn't work. So i open the mainframe box and wipe the dust, the displayer can work. But sometimes this issue happen again. So what can i do?

WadeHard, Welcome.

But do not hijack others threads. Just open a new one when u need to ask something. Go through the rules first. It helps to read u know.

So about ur problem, tell me what kinda hardware u have.
The type of mother board ?
Type of RAM?
And does it have a separate VGA or onboard graphics controller ?

According to the Technical Specifications document for your mother board, a BIOS feature called Hyper boot is available in the BIOS. Is that enabled?

So you did update to the newer BIOS, you didn't mention that earlier. I've noticed in other threads in the forum that the standard POST single beep has been removed in the BIOS updates for other Intel mother boards. That may be the case with your board and BIOS. An ASUS mother board I have also does not have a single beep when POST completes, this may be a new trend, and it would be nice if it was documented.

1 long beep is error, 3 more beeps means base memory failure. Once upon a time these were Standard across the industry.
Unplug the power cord sometimes works. Could be bad power could be heat could be a chip error.
