I 'stole' a case speaker from an old case.
I get one very short beep BEFORE the logo screen appears
As you will know this is an AWARD bios circa 2009. I havent flashed the original bios
There are no beeps, squeeks,whistles or gentle rustling noises after the logo screen appears
(as a sanity check I removed the memory and rebooted and got 4 long beeps, although the last beep was long,but not as long as the first 3)
The cpu heatsink is warm, so it leads me to believe the mobo is stuffed, but the manual says I should be getting 1 long,1short beeps if its a mobo error.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
