I send a msg to Global Technical Service today,
and I receive a answer about Post beep code for AMI BIOS UEFI
It is based on the AMI
beep code chartAMI BIOS FATAL ERROR BEEP CODES
1 beep – Refresh failure.- (DRAM-Memory Error)
2 beeps – Parity error. - (Memory parity check error-circuit failure)
3 beeps – Base 64 K memory failure. - (Basic memory 64K address check error)
4 beeps – Timer not operational. - (Real Time Clock=System timer failure)
5 beeps – Processor error.
6 beeps – 8042 – Keyboard controller
gate A20 failure.
7 beeps – Processor exception interrupt error. - (Virtual mode exception error)
8 beeps – Display (Graphic card)
memory read/write test
9 beeps – ROM checksum error.
10 beeps – CMOS shutdown register read/write error.
11 beeps – CPU
Cache memory bad. - (malfunction-error - The L2 cache is faulty)
******** END OF MSG ***********************
I would imagine that he gave me the most accurate information possible.
The word '' beep'' should be understood as equivalent to the word'' short''.
I added in bold characters
In manual of Gigabyte motherboard GA-Z77X-UP5_TH , I see page 31:One single short beep = no problem is detected at system startup.My comments:
Maybe is a Short Beeps of varying duration than other 1 Short Absic
, can you confirm if it is a long or short with your motherboard?
I am not sure if this is applicable to the motherboard UEFI, but I know that it is applicable for AMI
AMI BIOS NON - FATAL ERROR BEEP CODES
1 Long Beep Post- Post has passed all tests.
1 Long, 2 Short Beeps - Failure in video system - (An error was encountered in the video BIOS ROM, or a horizontal retracing failure has been encountered)
1 Long, 3 Short Beeps - Conventional/Extended memory failure
1 Long, 8 Short Beeps - Display/Retrace test failed
And a additionnal 2 short Post

Extract about Award Bios, from Gigabyte website:
1short beep ：System normal. - No error during POST
2 short beep ：CMOS Error. - Any - non fatal error, enter CMOS setup to reset
1 long beep and 1 short beep：Memory error
1 long beep and 2 short beep：Graphic card error
1 long beep and 3 short beep ：AGP error
1 long beep and 9 short beep ：Memory Error. - Flash RAM/EPROM (which on the motherboard) error
Continuous long beep ：Memory not correctly installed - Memory bank is broken or not plugged well
Continuous short beep ：Power supply unit failed
I hope you will be pleased with the addition of information.
I'll try to help you as best I can on the forum.
Greetings to you.
