Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Two sets of three beeps followed by a single beep means either the cmos battery or cmos ram is dead.

We need to get your exact model to look at your battery and reseat it or replace it.

Please reply when you are ready to continue.
