5 Beeps on startup after 10 second freeze, but PC still works fine.
5 beeps occured, but my pc seems to be working just fine, however it did freeze for about 10 seconds directly before the beeps, and the fans were louder than they should have been. Is something off? I've had one of the better processors for 1.5 years now.
5 beeps at startup could mean CMOS battery is dead, if you have a Dell
what type of motherboard do you have?
Here are the specs you're looking for: https://gyazo.com/493b643d83ae65bfb5efe8d7b12a5fd7
that is just your processor, I was after motherboard
I assume the PC is a custom build as otherwise, if it is a brand name, what make/model is it?
can you download and run speccy free version: https://www.piriform.com/speccy
when you open it, the default view is summary, if you scroll the right hand column down to motherboard and type out what it says under it.
Oh, sorry about that! Here are the specs found with Speccy. And yeah, it's a custom build. My worry is that I might need to change my processor soon, and a couple of other things.
