I just build it today. I followed a youtube newegg video and I read all the manuals. But when I press the power button, it startup and shows me a screen saying to boot for the OS.

Just like the video of youtube showed, I got the same screen, but here is my issue I got no startup beep. I have my speakers hooked up correctly. All the fans work and light up.

Is that normal not to beep at startup? Do these motherboards of 2013 beep at startup anymore?

Some boards don't have an onboard speaker, and require a speaker to be plugged in for beeps, the connection will usually be close to where the power, button and other front panel connections are located. My Asus X79 board is the same way.

So can you get into BIOS? Do you have a Windows install disk in?

I have my speaker inserted into the motherboard. My speakers has a light green color tip and I connected to the same color on the back of my motherboard and no beep. I even tried connecting as you said those speakers that comes with the motherboard and I connected to the front panel connections and again no beep.

I first get the MSI startup screen and then I get a black screen with this message saying "Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key"
I bought Windows 7 Home Premium retail version. I still have not opened it. I just thought I need to here a beep before I continue.
I am new in setting up a computer, what do I press to go to BIOS?

Edit: Okay I know how to get to BIOS now. What do I do there? Is there a way to fix the post beep to work?

I was talking about the where you plug the wires into the motherboard, it is shown on page 1-26 of the motherboards manual. If the case didn't come with the speaker you can buy one. http://www.xoxide.com/hspc-atx-control-kit.html. But its not really needed as your motherboard has a debug LED. The external speakers will not do a post beep it requires an internal speaker.

I just found out the newer MSI Motherboards do not post beep anymore.

I am glad to know I did everything correct. I just installed Windows 7 and I installed all the drivers. And I had no issues what so ever. I am glad to know that I did everything correctly. Thank you everyone for replying back to my post.

One question how do I mark my post as solved?
