Default Beeping Gigabyte H87-HD3

This is my first post here, I've been watching LTT MG Youtube Channels for years now, but never had the necessity to post here, let's see if the help comes from Linus buds...

I'm trying to repair a Gigabyte H87-DH3 that beeps (plenty and is not a two tone beep).

The beep code are strange (I'm attaching two sound files with them)... The second file is the latest and it is what the board is presently doing.

I've tried anything I can remember (Bios Reset, force backup bios, different CPU, different Memory, different Dimm slots/configurations, with/without external graphics, etc), but I don't have a clue of what this beeping means.

At the beginning the problem was intermittent and it would work sometimes, but presently I cannot boot it any-more.

Any ideas?

If that was not helpful then maybe take out the CMOS for about 15 min let it sit. Then pop it back and try again, also make sure everything inside the computer is pushed in. 

other then that I didn't find anything close to the beeping you have. sorry I cant be more help I will do a little more looking around, see if I can't find anything else.

Thank you for your effort, but all the information Is already known and all suggested troubleshooting has been already done.

Mostly my intent is the luck of reaching someone that has already repaired a board with this issue: I believe that are plenty out-there with this problem, maybe someone knows what causes it and what is the solution.


I'm pretty sure it won't be a memory resit, a CPU socket cleaning, a BIOS reset or something like that, I'm searching more of a solution like: replace the component located at spot X with an equivalent, this component as a tendency to go bad...
