Bios Beep Codes

I'm trying to determine the manufacturer of my BIOS in order to download the beep codes. I read where you find this information when you enter setup. When I entered setup, it said I had Award Phoenix CMOS setup. It also said my BIOS revision was 5.13 and my Core Version was 6.0, if that helps. But yet, when I went to 2 different Web sites to download the beep codes, it lists separate codes for Award and separate codes for Phoenix. Can anyone enlighten me as to which manufacturer I need to download? Or if there is a Web site that offers beep codes for both Award and Phoenix?

Why not ask the motherboard maker?

Why not ask the motherboard maker which is it? Or in the case of a brand name system, ask the manufacturer.

Phoenix Technologies bought out Award Software Int. so most Phoenix Award BIOS follow the Phoenix beep codes, found here. However, you can also click here for the older Award beep codes for comparison.

Hope this helps,
