Hi - one long and two short beeps is a video error. Is the graphics card you are using not the onboard graphics? Make sure you go into the BIOS and disable the onboard video. You should be able to change it to PCI-E if that's what your card is. If you have the onboard enabled and a seperate graphics card in at the same time, yhis is what is causing your conflict. Let me know what happens. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. Thanks.

I think the video card is doing some conflicting on your system, so if you have a spare video card that you can try that will be better.

Hope that helps........

BIOS Beep Codes
Whenever a recoverable error occurs during POST, the BIOS displays an error message describing the problem. The BIOS also issues a beep code (one long tone followed by two short tones) during POST if the video configuration fails (a faulty video card or no card installed) or if an external ROM module does not properly checksum to zero.
An external ROM module (for example, a video BIOS) can also issue audible errors, usually consisting of one long tone followed by a series of short tones. For more information on the beep codes issued, check the documentation for that external device.
There are several POST routines that issue a POST terminal error and shut down the system if they fail. Before shutting down the system, the terminal-error handler issues a beep code signifying the test point error, writes the error to I/O port 80h, attempts to initialize the video and writes the error in the upper left corner of the screen (using both monochrome and color adapters).
If POST completes normally, the BIOS issues one short beep before passing control to the operating system.

Possable failing bios or dead mobo


The Tyan MP boards do not support legacy USB. You have to use a PS/2 keyboard to get into the bios. If possible, I would clear the cmos by popping the battery out or finding the jumper to clear it. Then try to access bios again from ps/2 keyboard.

These boards also have compatibility problems with many video cards. Check Tyan's website for a list of supported cards if you are not using onboard video.

As long as the heatsinks are properly mounted on the CPUs with thermal compound, the fans are operating normally, and air is flowing through the system, the chasis that you run these boards in shouldn't matter.

If all fails, try removing pci devices, external peripherals and drives one at a time to try to eliminate possible causes.

As you are using the graphics cards in SLI mode ,have you checked for any settings in BIOS which needs to be enabled and have you placed the jumper wire which needs to be connected on the top of both the cards ?
