Abit AN7 not booting...strange post code

    Hey all,

    I just received a new Abit AN7 board to replace an troubled Aopen mb.
    I'm having issues getting it to boot. Upon power-up it makes a
    constant two-tone warning sound and seems to pause on post code 9A
    until hitting 99 and shutting itself off.
