Weird beep sounds in BIOS

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey!
Today when i entered the BIOS on my Asus Sabertooth Z77 to check out the CPU configuration (new computer) i started hearing some really varying and inconsistent beeps in both volume and frequency (like in how often it would beep). After some google searches it sounded like it could be Beep code for something, but after listening again it seems unlikely considering:
1. It's extremely inconsistent
2. It's very low volume
3. It's impossible to hear a pattern pretty much

Also another factor after restarting computer several times and being in Metro and inside programs is that the beeping only starts in BIOS and nowhere else. I haven't tried resetting CMOS yet, but is this anything anyone have encountered themselves? It's brand new hardware and i'm worried sick about it since i got a lot of help with putting the computer together and frankly have a very, very limited knowledge of PC's at this point. (only used macs).

Appreciate it.
