Hello niceguy_jes2,
click on this link for the ambulance like sound beep description:
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

"High frequency beeps while running". "Check the CPU fan for proper operation. Check the case for proper air flow".

First item to check would be CPU's fan speed. To do this, enter your bios menu. Listed there is "H/W Monitor". Open it. Check the fan speed, CPU temperature & mother board temp. Chances are the CPU fan is turning too slow & it may need to be replaced. (No less than 2300RPM's). Average CPU fan's spin at 3000 plus).
Next item if CPU fan is ok. The thermal grease between the heat-sink & CPU may have dried up over time & cause the CPU to get too hot. You may need to remove the CPU & heat-sink assembly. Clean off all old thermal grease from the bottom of the heat-sink & from the CPU. If you do this, do not scratch either surface. Use house hold alcohol on a clean rag & wipe away all old thermal grease. Apply a tiny amount of new thermal grease. Re-assemble & check through bios H/W monitor, CPU temp. One or the other will stop the system beeps.

3 log beeps on power on


Gigabyte doesn't list 3 long beeps as an error code, so I'm not sure if you're actually getting 3 short beeps or maybe 1 long and 2 short or... But, for reference, Gigabyte's error code list is as follows (depending on whether you have an AWARD BIOS or an AMI):

(AWARD BIOS)
1 short beep: System normal
2 short beep: CMOS Error
1 long beep and 1 short beep: Memory error
1 long beep and 2 short beep: Graphic card error
1 long beep and 3 short beep: AGP error
1 long beep and 9 short beep: Memory Error
Continuous long beep: Memory not correctly installed
Continuous short beep: Power supply unit failed

(AMI BIOS)
1 short beep: Memory Error
2 short beep: Memory parity check error.
3 short beep: Basic memory 64K address check error
4 short beep: Real Time Clock malfunction .
5 short beep: CPU error
6 short beep: Keyboard error
7 short beep: CPU interruption error
8 short beep: Graphic card error
9 short beep: Memory error
10 short beep: CMOS error
11 short beep: CPU cache memory malfunction

It might not be a lot of help, but it's somewhere to start... and at least this way you'll know what to be listening for.

Computer POST and beep codes
The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

AMI BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS Beep Codes
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes

My fisher & paykel washer wont start it beeps and says the lid isnt closed, but it is and there is a little ambulance that comes on the screen


I believe the lid switch is faulty, for the later modules the microswitch is mounted inside the door lock mechanism, others under the lid/top left side.

The ambulance is just saying to call for help....

THE RED LIGHT IS ON AND BEEPS EVERY MINUTE


What motherboard do you have? If you don't know, provice make and model of your system and maybe we can find out that way. Is it one long beep? Are there any other beeps and/or a sequence. A good place to start and alot of times, depending on your bios, 1 to 3 beeps means a problem with the RAM(memory). If you have more than 1 stick, you can pull them out, restart and if the beep is the same, you've probably found your culprit. You can then insert one at a time in one of your slots, then restart. If this works, you've found a good stick. If not, try another slot and restart, etc. Try all sticks in all slots.

CPU power problem


Check whether all connection are good and take out any CDs in the tray. I guess this must be a SMPS problem.

Code F1 means a stuck button. I removed the interface and lightly sprayed each with contact cleaner. So far this is working. The interface costs about $160 and contact cleaner, $10. Good luck.
