Hi SPAMFOREST,

This is a hardware failure yes.
Have you been overclocking the processor? As yes, as you said this normally indicates a fried processor. :(

its not been over clocked.  we have 2 processors in it and when it starts up it finds both of them ok.  they are pemtium III 500mhz with 512L2 cache if that helps.  it fails after the 2 beeps (i think thats the network card) but everything else looks ok and as normal.

Have you tried pulling one of the processors?

With some biosses this is possible, you'll have to look around for this functionality. But why disabling it if you can just pull the processor?
