Compaq deskpro startup beeps

[ Edited ]

I've recently attempted to boot a deskpro, nothing appears on the screen, the fans and disks all spin up, and then 1 long 1 short 1 long and then 1 short beep is sounded.

does anyone know where I can find the beep code list?

thank you

See paperclip icon on this message for attached PDF manual. Seems to be problem with BIOS. I would suggest clearing CMOS and if that doesn't help flashing current ROMpaq.
