Sounds like a Radeon 9600 SE I had before returning it shortly after in 2004 on my Asus A7V8X-X. The motherboard BIOS (Award) gave a video card bleep code after it was sitting then turned it on the next day!

"BLEEEEP----BLEEP-BLEEP-BLEEP" was what I got the next day!

It would then straighten out, it seemed that it had to be warmed up, despite the Radeon 9600 SE video card just being bought!


And my Soyo SY-K7VTA-B freaks out about the video card when powered up on a chilly morning. (I think that was in 2002)

Hit the power button for the motherboard to play a recording, like a telco, "THE VGA CARD MIGHT NOT BE INSTALLED PROPERLY".

But after retrying, it boots like nothing happened!
