Hoping for a quick repair, I opened the case, reseated the rams and video card and still getting the same beep. now, i removed all rams and opened the pc and i got a one really long beep. plugged back the rams and the somewhat long, stuttered beep came back. so i figured it is not a ram issue.
Next, I removed the video card to see if I will get a different beep. The somewhat long, stuttered beep remained. Plugged video card, unplugged video card, beeping sound remains the same. Am I right in thinking this might be a video card problem?
Any reply is appreciated, I really need to get this pc working because I also use it for school and work. And i am broke and cant afford another pc
PC: Alienware Area-51 7500
