Check your VGA Card it's properly connect and your memory module, maybe one of that is not functioning.

If still have that beeps then change temporarily your VGA Card with another. As long as you see some appears on the screen then it's good luck.

Good luck!

First check out the power supply connection,
besides that main power cord (20pin or 24pin), the 4pin 12V cord is also need to be connected.
If power connection is correct,
Please take the cpu cooler out, add some thermal paste to the CPU surface, then reseat thecooler back and keep the cooler tightly installed.
Then, please remove memory from the board,
and clear CMOS by:
1. Cut the power supply for whole system and open your case;
2. Take out the Cmos battery from the battery socket;
3. Install your battery with "reverse side" that means turn the battery 180 degree and put in into battery socket;
4. Hold about 30 seconds, then take out the battery and install it normally;
5. Plug the power cord and Power on.
If you can hear beeps, board maybe is still functional,
if no beeps from case speaker,
please test your CPU on another working board,
once CPU is tested OK, board should be dead.

I have checked all standard BIOS for the beep codes you have given and can't find anything close.
Start from scratch.
Look at your board and the power caps. for bulging or crowning.
Next, memory one at a time.
Good luck, hope this has helped

Before I did anything else, I would remove and reseat the memory chips (with the machine turned off, of course). 2 short beeps on a Asus typically means a memory problem.

Give the bios battery a good look to make sure it is not dead or not connected well. If that does not help then it is not happy with something plugged into it. pull the video card and see if the beeps are the same. then try each stick of memory one by one and so on till it makes a different sound.

PC will not start


This sounds like a memory error, can you define the beeps. There is a thing called a "beep code" on all motherboards, the website for the motherboard defines what the beeps mean. For example: one long beep followed by two short beeps of continous spaced beeps without a break. chris http://www.motherboardsrus.net

My dell dimension 2400 beeps morse code like and won't load


you have to follow the beeps very well to understand wat is the problem, each type of beep gives you sign for problem. so check if its one beep, two, or three, short or long, this makes very easy to you to define the problem.
Try to take out that parallel port if your pc works fine, this means this connector was not compitable to your board.
