Windows 7: Award BIOS Post Codes

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1
Award BIOS Post Codes

I have a couple of years old hp I am rebuilding for a friend. The model is an Pavilion m8124n with an OEM Asus mobo. I just went to test it before installing it back into its case using the bare minimum (processor, heatsink, monitor, psu, one stick of ram and a keyboard). As I powered it on, it began beeping. One short beep followed by one long beep then a short pause then it repeats. I did not see anything on the monitor.

I tried to google the code but was unsuccessful. I need to know what the issue is whether be ram, video or mobo.

Please help!!!
