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!!!

A long and short beep usually means the video could not be initialized.
