A machine that was over a year without working was turned on and it does not boot.

There's no video signal, only a beep code: 4-4-2-4

It seems that the Bios is not working.
Battery is O.K.

How can be the Bios restablished?

Motherboard: Intel DK440LX Dual processor
RAM: 128 MB
Bios: Phoenix

I will appreciate any help!

Thanks!

Get the bios file here:
http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts ... bios10.exe

And follow instructions for a recovery flash here:

Recovery jumper is mentioned in the documentation:

Remember these boards really barf at cheap/incompatible memory, you might want to try another stick.
