Not sure about the 2 beeps. Most people when they start their computer just have 1, but it doesn't appear to be giving you any problems if you can get in Windows.

Are you sure you have your drives plugged into the right SATA ports?

Also, the red light might be the backup power light. If so, its supposed to be like that.

"Memory parity error - A memory parity error has occurred in the first 64K of RAM. The RAM IC is probably bad"


Further down it also lists 2 short beeps as a generic POST failure, meaning it could be anything.

Edit, after reading the second link, it might have something to do with the HDD, but it boots into Windows normally, which suggests that it's not a fatal error.

Yeah, noticed that as well... edited the post to substitute the pdf from ASUS support though.

Conflicting info in both :??:

I generally don't find the number of beeps to be a reliable indicator of the problems very often.

When I hear unusual beeps it makes me think that the absolute most basic physical stuff needs to be checked again.
