									                         Award BIOS Beep Codes

Award BIOS uses beeps of varying duration. A long beep will typically last for 2
            seconds while a short beep will last only 1 second.

Award BIOS also uses beeps of different frequencies to indicate critical errors. If
 an Award BIOS detects that the CPU is overheating it may play a high pitched
               repeating beep while the computer is running.
