Hello! Is it normal to hear a soft beep from a 2+ years old MSI P43 NEO3-F (MSI-7514) motherboard (latest BIOS) when it detects my two old PATA/IDE HDDs and a SATA Pioneer DVD burner drive? I am not talking about that normal PC speaker that when booting up a PC (heard that one before it). The reason why I ask is because my motherboard seems to keep losing connections to both of my old PATA/IDE HDDs since last night. Specifications: Intel Core 2 Q8200 (quad-core; default clock speeds; Socket 775 LGA) with a Scythe Andy Master 120mm CPU cooler (SCASM-1000), Enlight 7237-ATX mid-tower case; two case 80mm case fans, MSI P43 NEO3-F (MSI-7514) motherboard (latest BIOS), two 1 GB of Crucial RAM (Samsung DDR2 800 (PC2-6400; 400 MHz), onboard RealTek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC network and RealTek audio, 600 watts SeaSonic S12 PSU, ASUS TV Tuner Card 880 NTSC (cx23880), Pioneer CD/DVD Burner Black SATA Model DVR-218LBK LabelFlash Support, 3.5" disk drive, Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 (ST380011A; 7200 RPM; 80 GB) HDD, an IDE Quantum Fireball Plus LM 15 GB, USB+memory card reader front panel, and an Intel InBusiness 10/100 (82559) NIC (not connected).
