6 Beeps: Keyboard controller / gate A20 failure
Explanation: The keyboard controller is a chip on the motherboard that communicates with your keyboard. It also controls the A20 gate that provides access to the high memory area (HMA). This component is indicating a failure.
Diagnosis: This is usually a problem with either the keyboard or the motherboard.
Recommendation:
Troubleshooting the keyboard is relatively easy; try that first.
Troubleshoot the keyboard controller.
Troubleshoot as a motherboard failure.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

2 beeps means Ram problem, boot the system by Mounting the memory stick one after another and find out which one is the culprit. You'll need to replace it. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

My oven display is beeping and blinking 'PBR' on the display. What does that mean?


I had this same problem last night.. I have been having problems with the oven shutting off on preheat.. That sort of stopped. Last night lost power to the house. When it returned the oven was beeping and flashing PBR. I turned off the breaker for a few mins. last night and it returned. It was bugging me so much that turned it off the whole night. Woke up this morning turned the breaker back on and it stopped. I don't think this is the total solution. I am thinking that eventually I am going to have to replace power board in this oven. Hope it works!
