    Error beeps on POST - S3420GP

    dr_ross

      Hi, just built a basic server to run a small database in a medical practice. I am very new at this task having built about 20 PCs in the past for work and home, generally not experiencing many problems.

       

      System specifications as below with USB keyboard and mouse plugged in.

       

      I am getting beep code warnings at POST but all seems to run.  The OS has loaded without issues.

       

      The beeping sequence is 1-1-2-1 (ie beep –beep – beep beep – beep).  The OS then loads and seems to run ok.

       

      I gather this may not be a POST error code (indicating memory errors) but a testing indication of attached USB devices during the POST.

       

      Can you help reassure me I do not have an issue??   I have not configured the BIOS to display/halt on any error message.  This is an option, should I try this??

       

      Thanks for your help, Ross
