here is a list of BIOS manfacture BIOS "error beep codes"  
  Since I dont know which BIOS you have I just copied all of them.  You can always tell which BIOS you have when you start the computer it displays the version and manfacturer

AMI

    AMI Beep Codes

    Except for beep code #8, these codes are always fatal.

    1 beep Refresh failure
       - try reseating the memory, if the error still occurs, replace the memory
    2 beeps Parity error
        - try reseating the memory, if the error still occurs, replace the memory
    3 beeps Base 64K memory failure
       - try reseating the memory, if the error still occurs, replace the memory
    4 beeps Timer not operational, system board bad
    5 beeps Processor error, system board bad
    6 beeps 8042 - gate A20 failure, try reseating the keyboard controller chip
    7 beeps Processor exception interrupt error, system board bad
    8 beeps Display memory video card read/write failure error, replace video memory or video card
    9 beeps ROM checksum error, faulty BIOS chip(s), must replace them
    10 beeps CMOS shutdown register read/write error, system board bad
    11 beeps Cache memory bad

Award

    Award BIOS Beep codes

    One Long and Two Short Beeps Video Error
    Two Short Beeps Any Non-Fatal Error
    One Short Beep No Error During Post

Phoenix

    Phoenix BIOS Beep codes

    These codes are presented in sets of beeps, for instance 1-2-2-3 means one beep followed by 2 beeps then 2 more beeps then 3 beeps

        * 1-2-2-3 BIOS ROM checksum
        * 1-3-1-1 Test DRAM refresh
        * 1-3-1-3 Test 8742 Keyboard Controller
        * 1-3-4-1 RAM failure on address line xxxx
        * 1-3-4-3 RAM failure on data bits xxx of low byte of memory
        * 1-4-1-1 RAM failure on data bits xxxx of high byte of memory bus
        * 2-1-2-3 Check ROM copyright notice
        * 2-1-3-1 Test for unexpected interrupts
        * 1-2 .......Search for option ROMs
        * 1 ...........One short beep before boot, normal
