Approximately one out of three times when I start my computer, my mobo will give off 1 long and three short beeps, yet boots to Windows fine. The mobo and CPU are brand new, and the GPU was working fine on another Asus mobo without beeping. It still works fine, just beeps every so often for no reason. What gives??

This means either there is no video card, or bad video card ram. Try moving the gpu to another PCIE slot, if your board has one. It might just be the slot.

So today it decided to beep every time I started the computer, but still gave me no issues. I moved it to the second slot and it still beeped every single time I booted it. Switched it back to the first slot and it was still beeping every time.

So I thought back a few days when I first heard the beeps(wasn't counting them, but could've sworn it was 1 long and 3 short) when I was assembling my PC. I opened the case and found out I didn't seat a RAM stick in all the way, reseated it properly, and everything went fine until it randomly started with the beeping, until today when it would beep every single time I booted.

So I pulled out both RAM sticks and booted the PC and got one long and two short beeps over and over until I powered it off. I put one stick in and power cycled it a few times with no beeping at all. I then tested the second stick and no beeping. Finally I put them both in and now no beeping!!!

I did install the drivers for the mobo a day or two after building and running the PC...could this have given me an issue? It's a Sabertooth Z87 if that helps narrow it down any. I also recently overclocked the CPU, but I'm not sure that has anything to do with it.

I'm utterly confused here, what's going on with my computer?
