My computer with a S5520SC workstation Board has recently started making 5 beep before the normal bios post beep codes. Does anyone know what it means?

Thanks Vanda

Hello vandafcs

The following table lists the POST error beep codes. Prior to system video initialization, the BIOS uses these beep codes to inform users of error conditions. (Please note that not all error conditions are supported by BIOS beep codes.)

The Intel® Workstation board S5520SC integrated Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) provides the following additional beep codes:

You could get more information from http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/s5520sc/sb/e39545006_s5... Intel® S5520SC Technical Product Specification (TPS).(Page 39)

Are you able to identify any of the previous beep codes as the one you are getting or are you getting a totally different beep code?

Hello Caesar B

Thank you.

I think it is a DDR3 module with a defect. In total a get 6 beeps and a red led light next to the DDR3 slot. When I ran a Intel diagnostic of my motherboard, it detected less RAM than what I should have.

Hello vandafcs ,

Try testing the ram modules on different Slots in order to determine if there is a defective module.

Please let me know if the issue is isolated to a RAM Module or is it is the Slot not detecting it.

Best regards,
