My EXP8551 beeps 7 times after a BIOS update

Before update conficuration:
AMIBIOS Winbond BIOS VER 1.3 TRITON.
Codes.
51-0000-001107-00111111-101094-TRITON-0

I have Winbond I/Os.

I downloaded BIOS MR BIOS DataExpert "EXP8551 VER 1.2" for Winbond Super I/O.

After the update it got into the BIOS setup screens and hit F10 to save. After the reboot the beeps started.

Yes I did try to clear CMOS. At least I think I got it right. I just bridged the CMOS two pins and powered it up. But even with the "CMOS reset" pins bridged the beeps were there and at same count(7 beeps). Then I removed the bridge(if that what is called?!) Same result again

For 4 beeps, 5 beeps, 7 beeps, or 10 beeps the system board must be sent in for repair.
