Start up issues
i just leave my pc on all the time, hardly turn it off and last night i just heard it start beeping. It i a constant beep for about 3 seconds then nothing for a few seconds and the beep again and it just keeps going. the screen was blnak to.
i tried to restart and it did the same thing as soon as i turned it on. ive tried flashing the bios but it still wont start up and keeps beeping.
any help would be great.
Check your motherboard specifications. Newer motherboards give audio feedback in case of problems. It rather sounds like a software-induced noise, however. Is it a PC-speaker beep or a software (soundcard) beep?
check your ram and viedo card. one of them is 3 beeps I forget which.
Video card is three beeps. I'll never forget that noise from when my 3D Prophet died.
thanx for the help, it was a pc speaker beep ont a sound card one, but i found the problem......
somehow my bios changed with out me doin it, it set my frint side bus speed way to high so i had to change it and i turned the bios auto update off so it shouldnt do it again..............i hope.
Tricksy F*cking Bios'
Might want to check your bios battery too. If your settings are mysteriously changing, then its an early indication that your battery is about to die. Fortunately those things are only $2-3 in cost. By far the cheapest thing to fix on a computer. LOL
