    My computer (an old packard bell 386 (486?) anywho one of those) is making noises from the motherboard and I'm sure they mean something. Since it is my dad that is working on it I'm not sure what kind of tones they are but I am pretty sure that is the only response the computer is giving him thus far (ie: not in any OS yet). If anyone could point me to someplace where these sequences are explained I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Yes, thats it exactly. I guess I'll take a look at that website, and get back to you. Thanks.
