According to the manual for that board:
If it beeps... then ...
6 times reseat the keyboard controller chip. If it
still beeps, replace the keyboard
controller. If it still beeps, try a
different keyboard, or replace
the keyboard fuse, if the keyboard has one.
So it looks as though the chip is reseatable/replacable.
It's a good day when you learn something
