Beep Codes (POST)?

G.O.A.TG.O.A.T Member Posts: 138
I just want to cler something up to ensure I am understanding beep codes correctly. So are beep codes specific to the BIOS being used? if so if beep codes are different depending on the BIOS in use would the information for this be found on the BIOS documentation?

    Thats what I thought but heres a quote from the A+ Exam Cram book by David L Prowsie

    "The BIOS indicates any system problems that the POST finds by either on-screen display codes or beep codes. For example, a displayed 301 Error would most likely be a keyboard issue. Or one beep might indicate a memory error. This all depends on the type of BIOS used."
