Hi all. How about this one, my computers mobo would sometimes beep 5 times, like it would if there was a problem with the CPU. However, aside from the beeps, everything would boot fine and no problems with the computer whatsoever. I tried to find the reason for these beeps though and finally I've found the reason. I'm quite surprised though, that whenever I unplug my usb-keyboard it will beep 5 times on startup. I use this PC as a couch HTPC and therefore I would plug/unplug a keyboard quite often, until recently when I got a wireless one. Now, since my wireless keyboard runs on both usb and bt, I will get the beeps every time I boot with the keyboard running on bt, but never when using the usb-dongle. So what about this one guys, anyone had anything similar happen? Anyone knows why this is happening? It's no crisis, I mean, everything is running fine, but I'm quite baffled by this and would like to know if I'm the only one or if this is normal or what? I could get that it would react to not detecting any keyboard, but why the exact same beeps as a CPU problem, when there's clearly no problem with the CPU, it's only reacting to my keyboard being unplugged..weird right? Thanks for any feedback.
