I have a K7S5A motherboard and, for the past several days, has gotten into\nthe habit of beeping 5 times at the very end of the bootup, just as the\ndesktop loading finishes. I am running Windows XP SP2.\n\nAny idea what the beeps mean? I assume it is something bad but I have no\nidea what it means or how to find out, except to ask here.\n\nFor what it's worth, I've had this motherboard for over 6 years now and it\nhas only started doing this in the last few days. In February, I had major\nissues with my hard drive and acquired a replacement drive. However, I still\nhave my old drive in place as well so that I can gradually move my key data\nover to the new drive. The old drive still seems to be working but it would\nnot remotely surprise me if the 5 beeps have something to do with the old\ndrive.
