Good evening, Shindou, welcome to GeeksToGo! :thumbsup:

For surely the beeps mean, I need to look at the manual of your BIOS. Let me know the model / version that I inform you with more certainty. Go to start, run (if using windows xp), type msinfo32 and press enter. There will be information model / version and date of your BIOS. Let me know, please.

But there are some suggestions for the beeps. Do you have experience in opening your computer? If yes, open it, slide your hand through the metal cover (inside), to avoid problems with static, and follow the procedures below:

Remove your card off, and turn the computer back. The beeps continue? If so, remove the memory card ram and see if the beeps are the same or changed.

If the beeps do not continue when you take your card off-board, the problem is with her, and let's see what it is. If they continue, and when you put your memory card the beeps continue the same way, the problem is with her.

If there is no option, report that we will seek other solutions.

hugs :cool:

Please look at the chart in the attached link and tell us which beeps are the ones that you hear http://www.bioscentr...es/amibeep.htm#
The following checks require the computer case to be opened so take the following safety precautions 1st, disconnect the power cord from the wall and take anti static precautions before touching anything inside, you can do this by touching a bare metal part of the case.

I suggest a different approach in that you remove the Ram first to see if the beeps change, if they do then it suggests the add on video card is bad and will need replacing http://www.videocard...ideo_card.shtml
