Just recently I have replaced the CMOS battery and changed my IDE CDROM to Channel 1 Slave. Ever since, there has been a POST code of continuous 5-second beeps, and I don't know how to fix it.

CPU: Pentium 3

Video card: ?

Sound card: Sound Blaster Live

OS: Windows 98

Can anyone help?

POST is going to look for four things. Power Supply, memory, motherboard and CPU. Eliminate the CPU. Check to see that the power supply lights are on. THey should be as it worked before. Re-seat the memory for the sake of re-seating.You did some changes. Check the new battery and see if it reads 3vdc with a voltmeter. You may have to clean the battery and the socket. check for corrosion. The IDE change. Put it back to original and see if it POST's. There may be a bad IDE Port. THe other question  to ask is ---what kind of Bios is it? THat makes it easier to look up.

BIOS is Award Modular. I already checked the battery. IDE seems to be fine.

Check the Memory. See that they are seated properly. If you have a few spares, try them. It is a memory fault.
