I have an Asus p4s533-mx motherboard which boots and runs fine (sometimes). But when I perform a warm boot, it often won't pass POST. The beep code is one long and two short. If I power it down and let it sit for awhile, it will start up OK, but it enters SETUP. I exit SETUP with no changes and it starts OK.
The response from ASUS tech support - It's a standard Award BIOS, so they're the standard beep codes.So I wrote the following on page 3-4 of my user guide:1 long + 2 short = Video adaptor error1 long + 3 short = No video ... PC Desktops

Problem: 1Bit NF7 Motherboard w/AMD won't boot 1. All o.k. for looong time. Using adaptec ATA RAID 1200A to mirror (RAID 1) two 120GB WD drives & Win XP Pro. 2. Tried connecting additional drives from other old machine as slaves as well as a 5-1/4" drive. 3. Machine appears to go through boot process as far as the usual first beep (drives fire up etc.), which sounds slightly different (I think) from the usual boot beep, and then stops. There is also a high-pitched, low-volume, whistle.
It looks like you have a faulty motherboard, the whining sound is the diagnostic beep from motherboard doing just an abnormal sound as the motherboard is getting jammed and turning off.If you have a replacement CPU that mounts into your m ... PC Desktops
