Updated: Just found these codes but don't have clue on what they mean:
2 beeps - Parity Error <what does this mean?
You are getting 6 beeps indicating 8042 - gate A20 failure:
Check for foreign objects such as screws that may ground the desktop board and make sure the screws that hold the motherboard are not too tight. <doesn't look like these are an issue
Try a different keyboard. <tried this
Try a different processor. <have a P4 w/HT, but not sure if this mobo supports it?
I found out from the owner that she tried to instal a new usb mouse prior to the pc going out.
Also found soe trouble shooting on the 6 beeps, but it's looking like the mobo is bad... Still trying to find out what can be done, so any help appreciated... Thanks
