Boot Error Beeps

My PC froze followed by the BSOD suggesting there was a system fault. I tried to restart but got the Beep code one long and two short beeps (Award BIOS)and a black screen which tells me there's a video error. I thought the card might be faulty altho' the card fan was spinning. I tried it in my other PC and it works fine. In fact I'm writing this on it now. Does this suggest that the chipset has failed or could it be something else? The mobo is an ASUS M2N-SLI

Reseat the memory chips, if more that one tries then one at a time

Panic over. The CMOS settings somehow became corrupted. I reset it and all is well (hopefully). Thanks for the input.
