the little book that came with my motherboard has this to say:
1-3 beeps This sequence represents the fail-safe booter startup
4 No valid header found in ROM; loading entire ROM
5,6,7 Same meaning as Post code 3F fatal error codes
3F Fatal error. Second code identifies source of error:
05 No memory found
06 Checksum error detected when image was read back
07 Could not determine the SIMM type
i got 6, which turned out to be easy to fix. i replaced the battery
on the motherboard.
