I'm trying to find out what a very long beep, followed by the same long beep - ad infinitum, could mean on an INTEL 82430I motherboard integrated by INTEL 82437FX Triton System Controller - the manual gives no POST or beep codes.

The BIOS is by Award Software Inc. 1995
Serial No. 026580686

I've looked at dozens of boards' beep codes, but none have this sequence.

Any help, or where to look, would be great.

Thanks in antic.

One long beep usually indicates a memory problem I.E one long beep followed by another long beep of same duration .
Diagnosis: The first bank of memory probably has a failure of some sort; this is
usually just a physical problem such as an incorrectly inserted module, but may also mean
a bad memory chip in a module. It is possible that there is a failure related to the
motherboard or a system device as well.

CPU may be setup improperly as well.
