I recently built a gaming system and have an i7 920 with an Intel DX58SO and 6GB of Corsair PC-1600 memory.
Everything seems to work fine and the system is fast but I get no beep on bootup. If I pull out all the memory I do get 3 beeps so at least I now the speaker works. If I put even one stick in one of the slots I get no beep but it still boots up fine.
Another thing is weird... I get no real information on the bootup screen. There's a cursor up on the top left for about 5 seconds and then it goes to an Intel splash screen telling me that if I hit F2 or F10 I can get to either the BIOS or Boot Sequence screen or whatever it's called. Other than that I don't know who the BIOS manufactures is(Phoenix or AMI?) or if it's running a memory test. Isn't there some info on bootup?
Another fellow said "computers are mysterious" and to leave it at that if it all works but it still bugs me.
Anyone have the same MB? What does your bootup screen look like?
Disable the splash screen to see post information and here are the beep codes from your users manual
BIOS Beep Codes
The BIOS also issues a beep code (one long tone followed by two short tones) during
POST if the video configuration fails (a faulty video card or no card installed) or if an
external ROM module does not properly checksum to zero. Table 15 lists the BIOS
Table 15. Beep Codes
3 No memory
Siren Processor overheat (on reboot)
I'm still working on this and here's what I've done: cleared the CMOS, taken out the battery and put it back in. No change.
Checked connections on MB, cards, memory, etc., looks good. Changed memory timings in BIOS, same problems.
I still don't get a beep on boot nor a POST screen. I don't have anything in my BIOS to enable/disable splash screen.
If I pull out the memory I get the 3 beeps but if I put one or all 3 sticks in I get no beep.
