I have an MSI P67A-GD65 (REV B3) 
When I boot the machine sometimes I get 1 long and 2 short beeps, or when I change my keyboard (USB or PS2) I get 1 long  and sometimes 3 or 4 beeps.
I have tried booting with nothing in the USB ports and just my graphichs card (PCI Express Lane 1), then I get 1 long 2 short, which I thought was my graphics card, so I put it into the other PCI express slot and stil 1long 2 short.
I have also checked my ram with "Windows Memory Diagnostic". No faults were found.
So I don't think its my graphis or memory as the beep code is different only when I change the keyboard or mouse.
Also what I have noticed sometimes its Ctrl+M and sometimes its Del to get into the bios.
Its a clean install with all the drivers upfated through Live 5.
Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated, as I don't normally use MSI.
I have loked up the beep codes on the AMI site http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/amibeep.htm.

I don't think old school beep codes apply to newer boards.  From what I gather the beeps, number of beeps, coincide with the number of USB devices present.



Any actual problems, or just the beeps?

Thanks for the reply, and after eventually getting a response from MSI I find that you are correct. A bit of a silly feature I.M.O.
