Those beeps are the key to troubleshooting. They are used to indicate a specific problem, usually a failed component, when the motherboard cannot display video.Originally Posted by rusty
Most motherboards have 'beep codes'. Look up your motherboard's manufacturer, and they should have a reference to the beep codes for that motherboard. There isn't any standard or anything for the beep codes, as far as I know. so each motherboard or manufacturer is different.
Could it be video? possibly. It could also be CPU, memory, or a motherboard component.
