M58 - Undocumented beep code at POST

I recently bought two government surplus M58 desktops (7360-P52).  Core 2 Duo E7500 + 2 x 2GB PC3-8500 + 250GB Seagate drive + Win 7 Pro installed.

 

Both machines work without problems after boot.  Before booting, though, I count 38 short beeps at POST in quick succession on both of them. This isn't a documented code anywhere that I can find.

 

I have tried swapping DIMMs and DIMM locations.  I have dropped in 1GB DIMMs instead.  I have changed the button battery.  Unplugged the DVD drive.  Unplugged the hard drive.  The fans seem to be running fine.

 

I would keep swapping parts if it wasn't 38 beeps on both.

 

I would be very grateful for a clue.
