Sounds like a memory issue to me. Do you have extra sticks of RAM to test with?

I found a manual from the website, but it seems to be 'sans beep-code table'

Sorry for double post, but I found this

http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

This was posted on another forum in response to a similar question for an ECS board, and the poster said that he sucessfully looked up his beep code on this table. So I'm guessing Award/ECS are either the same thing, or use the same beep codes.

You said that, 'thesound repeats' after that 13 seconds'. According to that table that means:

Hope this fixes it

Try re-seating the cpu. In the process clean off the old thermal paste and apply a new even thin layer. As the table indicated it could either be excess heat due to poor application of thermal paste, or a improper/poorly seated processor.

Default Re: motherboard beeping (SOUND INCLUDED!)

naw theres hardly any thermal paste and also its brand new arctic silver thermal paste and i barely put a thin layer on it. and ive tryed re-seating the cpu and putting the old one in and the same problem occurs. if i take out my ram and it doesnt do it then is it possible that it was that?
