BIOS Beep Codes 0.8.0.803
Uncover the meaning of most BIOS beep codes

BIOS Beep Codes is a simple tool that will explain the BIOS error beep codes for all the main PC BIOS manufacturers (AMI, AWARD, Phoenix, IBM).

If you've ever had a PC fail its power-on self-test then you'll know how useful this can be. Typically you'll just get some pattern of beeps - one long and three short, say - and then be left hunting for your system manual to find out what these noises could possibly mean.

With BIOS Beep Codes, though, it's all very different. The program is portable, so save it to a USB flash drive and you can launch it from just about any PC. Then choose your BIOS type and click on the beep code you're hearing for a detailed description of what it's trying to tell you, and how to fix the problem.

If you're just having a problem with your own PC then BIOS Beep Codes may not be necessary; you can just check your documentation to find out what any BIOS alerts might mean.

If you regularly help other people with their PC problems, though, it's worth keeping a copy to hand, just in case of emergencies.

Verdict:

The Beep Codes Viewer doesn't just give you a few words explaining the meaning of each beep code - you get in-depth details on how you might fix the problem, too. An essential addition to every geek's portable troubleshooting toolkit

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
