I am trying to identify what the beep means on the following motherboard:

Asus A8N-E

My friend recently replaced his fan with a new NorthBridge fan and now on start up he is getting the following beep code:

2 short beeps followed by 3 beeps.

He has tried replacing the RAM with sticks from a machine that are known to be good, and removed all other hardware that might be causing problems: the Graphics card, hard drives and all other cards etc. but still gets the beep code.
