Single beep when I power on. What's that code for?
What does the one beep from the computer speaker mean when you power on? I can't seem to find my manual to check just now. Thanks!

In most cases it means BIOS was able to boot and post and all is well. It's when you don't hear it more more than 1 beep you know there is a problem.

You can get a list of the codes from a number of places like http://www.pcguide.com/ts/x/sys/beep/

Before they even start really discussing the codes, they include this...

NOTE: A single beep during the boot process, usually right before the BIOS startup screen is displayed, is normal and does not indicate a failure as long as the boot continues on.

Yeah... If we could all just forget I ever asked this question, I'd feel a little less idiotic about now... We all have brain freezes, right?
