Problem - Now No Post - Just Beeping as music
So here is a new one I have never seen, and of course it happens to me!
So ok, my 2 year old son was watching nickjr on my PC this morning. Heard something associated with the keyboard being knocked around. No big deal go it, he is still watching all is well, I goto work. My wife calls me and says the keyboard will only type when CAPS lock is on. Ok, my son screwed up the keyboard, it sucks but whatever.
Here comes the fun part. I have my wife check the keyboard conection and restart. The comp then does not post and starts to beep a music tune. dededda dedededaaaa, over and over again. I repeat NO POST screeen. Tried to reboot with out keyboard same thing. The computer is a custom build that has been pretty stable for the last 1.5yrs, no overclocking. The only problem i have ever had was the Network interface on the Mobo failed, so I had to get a NIC card.

Any ideas what this could be? Virus? PS? RAM??? Any ideas would be great to hear.
Update - Just remembered we had a pretty bad lightning storm here yesterday. Could it be a CMOS error?
