anywho after i did that the computer wouldnt turn on it just made a beeeep beeeep beeeep sound when i turned it on. figuring it's getting old i started pulling out all the ummm card things (pci cards or whatever) still made the noise unplugged the hardrive cd roms etc still made the noise and then i smelt a burning smell (after only having the computer on for about 5 seconds)
so i felt around and found that the ram was very very very hot i took it out replaced it with a spare stick i had laying around (it was the only ram stick in there) so i replaced everything and success no beeping BUT when it started up the screen said "bios rom checksum error"...
i googled it and found that it means i have to flash the rom or somthing OR that the burning that i smelt did some damage to the mother board and all hope was lost...the advice was paint it and use it as a large paper weight lol
knowing my computer i decided to give it another try for old times sake and it started up got to the windows loading screen and then restart this has made me think it's not a rom thing but when i tried to turn it on again it came up with the "bios rom check sum error" thing
any ideas as to what is going on?
