I have a question for you what type of bios do you have ... if you can get me that information I can most likely tell you what the beeps mean...

Try these POST Beep Codes to help you in troubleshooting boot up problems (for the IBM300's though, but might be similar).

Beep Code: Probable Cause:
1-1-3 CMOS write/read failure
1-1-4 Bios Rom checksum failure
1-2-1 Programmable interval timer test failure
1-2-2 DMA initialization failure
1-2-3 DMA page register write/read test failure
1-2-4 RAM refresh verification failure
1-3-1 First 64k RAM test failure
1-3-2 First 64k RAM parity test failure

Depending on what BIOS you have if it is AMI BIOS it means conventional/extended memory failed. If it is IBM and or few others it is a faulty peripheral controller usually the video card (VGA/EGA). Check the video card to be sure iti s seated properly and hasn't popped loose or shifted sometimes over time this can happen even if you don't move it or bump it. Hope this helps.

The AMI Bios beeps once to tell the user everything is OK. The beeps mean some thing is wrong. This is coded so you can check its manual or their website for the meaning of these beeps. You could alsocall your engineer to check the inside of your PCwhether all the cards etc. are proper.
