Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Computer dead and beeping

\015 I was downloading an upgrade for Kodak photo gallery when my screen went black and the computer started an intermittent beep. Now it will not boot, it just beeps. I even tried to use the boot disk, but that won't even load. Anybody got any ideas?\015

Answers :

If it beeps and not boot then it is the post routine telling you there is a problem. The post routine is run when you turn the power on to ensure the computer hardware is ok to run. The manufacturer of the bios routine can tell what is wrong by the type, number and duration of the beeps. Look up the code meanings and it will indicate the problem. If this sounds like nonsense to you then give the make and model of your machine and what the beeps sound like. ( beep beep beep delay beep beep beep) etc. and I'll look it up for you.
