MR Microid Research error beep codes

Does anyone have a list of MRbios error beep codes?

Sometimes restarting W95 ends in a 1 short-[6-8]long- 1 short beep sequence and my pc locks-up. I have a Intel endeauvor m/b with vibra chip on board and MR bios.

I have a copy of the MRBIOS reference manual.  Post your FAX number and I'll send a copy your way.  From your description above the error condition is ambiguous (i.e. [6-8] doesn't describe any of the conditions).
