Hi, I'm mad. I have searched for weeks and found nothing. I have Intel server motherboard S3200SH and i have no idea what kind or type of bios it has. I need to know this because it won't post and gives beep signals and i have no idea what is the problem. So can anyone find the anwer?

A very easy DuckDuckGo search turns up this:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/s3200sh/sb/e14960009_s3210sh_tps_r1_8.pdf

Found through this page:

Just scroll ahead to section 5.2. Apparently the board has very good diagnostic LED display and as well a video output of error messages which is well documented in the above document. The only beep codes it decodes, though, are for errors occurring prior to video initialization... a series of three beeps which for memory.
 
as suggested above, look up the beep codes and it will help you figure out what's not working. post back here for help of course.

do not just go to update the bios for no reason. it's beeping and trying to tell you what the problem is. flashing the bios now is the worst thing you could do. fix your issues and test. you may not need to update the bios at all, or do it once everything is working as expected. I don't do it unless i need new functionality and hardware support they've added or to fix a problem I am having, or if it includes security upgrades and fixes.
