I could not find anything on the 5-2-2-1 code but here is what I found on the 1-2-3
=DMA read/write failure The DMA controller has failed. Replace the IC if possible

Good Luck

Where did you look? I searched Google for "Beep Code 5-2-2-1" and came up with 80 hits.

5 2 2 1

Lets see, that's a failure of the memory and I'll bet the first beep was a long one. This usually indicates that the first 64kb of memory is bad and the CPU can't even load the BIOS. Does this motherboard have integrated video?? That could also be where the failure is if it's not integrated.
