Help! No POST Beep - MSI Z87-G45 Gaming Motherboard
« on: 10-August-13, 03:20:39 »

I'm building my first computer, using the MSI Z87-G45 Gaming mobo. I've set up the CPU+Fan, RAM, GPU and power cables, and the little motherboard speaker and connected the graphics card to a monitor via a VGA cable. When I short the power on, the fans run, the mobo light comes on and it shows the motherboard screen on the monitor with hit DEL to enter BIOS before going to a black screen with some text on: "EFI Shell Version 2.31 [4.654]
Current running mode 1.1.2
map: cannot find required map name.
Press Esc in 1 seconds to skip startup.nsh, any other key to continue.

So I think everything is working okay, but there is no POST beep!? I read that there should be a POST beep when researching about building a computer. I know the speaker is in correctly because if I power on without the RAM it beeps for sure.

A few things I'm worried I might have screwed up are: pushing the 24-pin power cable into the motherboard (it took a lot of effort and my fingers hurt trying to get it in all the way, but it's in and clipped now); and that some of the longer pins on the bottom of the motherboard are a little squashed while I was applying pressure putting the power cable/some components in... it was resting on top of the motherboard box all the time which is what most people recommend when testing the motherboard/components outside of the case, but I don't see any other way I could have averted that... I hope it's not important as I think the important pins are on the top side of the motherboard where all the parts fit in..

Anyway, I'm worried about no POST beep, please help!

All the new motherboards are equipped with BIOS which has removed the POST beep feature. From now on,you will hear a beep code only when there's some problem.
