No Boot and Multiple beeps! Please HELP!
« on: 30-August-04, 15:11:35 »

Ok i was doing some maintenance yesterday (finally got around to connecting my computer to my home network) and i used liveupdate to update some of my drivers and to bring me to Bios 1.2 (and i updated windows too).  I have got a Beta version of the new bios on floppy but i was gonna install that today.  Everything went fine so i installed prince of persia (free with my graphics card), watched a few tv eps, switched off my computer and went to bed.  I tried to restart this morning and my computer has started beeping at me! (just a continuous beeping from the system speaker, not morse or out) it won't let my monitor come on so i can't tell what the problem is.
I have disconnected all my drives (HDD CDRW DVD FDD) and it still does it. can anybody help me? i am really worried about this!

Thanks!

Remove RAM and re-seat it.

Try clearing CMOS.

  • The beeping sound should repeat in a certain sequence, for example, 1 long beep followed by 2 short beep.

    Post how your beep code sounds and it'll be able to define what the problem is.

    the beeping is not in morse code (if it was i might have been able to work it out myself!) it is just a long sequence of short beeps. the beeping stops but because of a (potentially related) problem with the screen that i've been having i can't find out much!
    I'll try the ram thing.

    yup it was the cmos thing.
    I reset my bios settings and the computer worked!
    I now just have severe instability in windows. any more ideas anyone?
    Could this be an instable bios (xp freezes, all input devices stop working and the sound stutters)
    If its a windows prob tell me. i've got a backup somwhere (or i could just reinstall!)

    Cheers

    What are the amp ratings for the +3.3/+5/+12v power supply lines?
