AK86-L high low beep alarm for no reason

    Hello, my AOpen AK86-L machine is giving the high low beep alarm for
    no reason. It is running an Athlon XP 3200+ and BIOS 1.18. It
    doesn't do this all the time.

    CPU temp is fine and I've tried installing different RAM. The machine
    works fine while it is beeping, but it's disconcerting.

    I had a second AK86-L which had this problem much worse and eventually
    died (won't even POST). Two other AK86-L machines that I have are
    working fine.

    Any idea what the high low alarm could mean, if not CPU temp? Thanks.

    I think the CPU thermostat is dead. I disabled the CPU over temp
    alarm (which was at 60 and was not legitimately causing the alarm to
    go off) and it has not beeped since.

    A point of interest: If the beeping bothers you enough to unplug your
    PC Speaker from the motherboard, but you find the onboard speaker
    STILL beeps, a little dab of glue over its opening works nicely to
    quiet it down.
