Award Bios Beep Codes

Hi,
I have a Gigabyte M/B with an Award dual Bios v4.51pg.
ID String 2a69kg0ec-00
I purchased a 80 GB HDD and needed to flash my Bios to accomadate this new hardware.
So, I find the right upgrade,(F2 for GA 6BXE) Run the award flash utility,
backup the old bios and install the new Bios,
The flash utilitiy then ask me if I want to Reset or Exit.
I select exit, instantly, the PC emits a long beep, repeated endlessly.
Now I have checked several websites which state that this "DualBios" will let one reset the bios if a corrupt or incorrect bios is loaded, however I do not get this option.
I cannot find a description of this beep code. Award now Phonex, state that there are only 2 error codes
"AwardBIOS -- The only AwardBIOS beep code indicates that a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information. This beep code consists of a single long beep followed by two short beeps. Any other beeps are probably a RAM (Random Access Memory) problem.
My monitor does not display any text at all.
This cannot be the case as I have not changed any H/W or RAM
So, Can anyone tell me what the error code means
or better still how to repair this.
Any help greatly appricated
