For reference, specifically, this would be indicative of an alarm on the motherboard. The only typical alarm of this nature would be an overtemperature alarm, either for chassis or (more typically) CPU temperature. In this case, it sounds like the CPU fan was failing, causing the CPU to overheat; once the threshhold temperature was reached (BIOS configurable), the alarm sounded. Remember, boys and girls, if your computer is making a sound like an ambulance, there's probably something bad going on.

ABIT GD8 Pro

Alright, this sounds like the board was DOA (Dead on Arrival). Unfortunately it sounds like you will have to contact ASUS and request an RMA or a refund. This has been happening more often with ASUS products recently and is definitely a pain.

You should be able to find your way from here: http://support.asus.com/

You might give their tech-support a shot, just to ensure that it's not DOA. However this seems to be the case and will require you to either get a refund or replace (RMA) the board.

All the best.

Two tone Siren from MoBo/over heating CPU

at first go to the bios. then default the bios setting. then check the system monitor. if the cpu is too hot you can see it. or you can change the processor. never over clock the processor.

Abit bd7m - no video, no keyboard, no mouse

Why does the BD7 board fail to POST with sirens? Is the mainboard faulty? A:
  1. If the CPU retention unit or heat sink wasn't installed correctly, the bad heat dissipation will cause P4 CPU over temperature and fail to boot up.

  2. Please check the black CPU retention is fully inserted into the holes in the mainboard. Below picture illustrates a bad installation- there is a gap between retention unit and mainboard.

  3. Please make sure the white nails were fully inserted and can prevent CPU retention unit from loosen.

  4. Double check the back side of mainboard. If the feet of CPU retention unit and white nails were correctly installed?
