I have a Motherboard that I bought in 2004 I think. I have used it and it has operated flawlessly since. Just recently I reinstalled it into another cabinet and made a few enhancements. The changes made are as folllows:
I upgraded the RAM from 512MB SDRAM to 639 MB SDRAM.
I disabled the onboard sound and added a Sound Blaster PCI 128 Sound Card.
I removed the generic PCI Video card and replaced with ATI RAGE 128 AGP Video Card.
When I start the machine I get a warning beep in an evenly spaced pattern, such as beeeep.....beeeep.....beeeep.....beeeep.....beeeep.....beeeep.
I then shut the machine off and use the bios reset jumper and clear the bios. After this the machine starts and all equipment operates properly, except for the sound card which requires onboard to be disabled first. The computer will operate flawlessly until I shut down again. When I start it back up I have to reset the bios as before even if I have made NO changes to it. I have searched the WEB and cannot find a manual ANYWHERE. The closest I have come was a virus infected file from driverguide.com.
Here are the Motherboard Specs:

Can anyone please Help? Every search I do says that it is was made by LuckyStar but they are now defunct and all links I can find to this mobo are no good or have no info.
Thanx in advance for all of the efforts.
