Having problems with your Compaq Deskpro EN PC Desktop ?

Flashed BIOS on Compaq Deskpro EN because re-imaging disk told me I needed to. Shut down/got shut down (don't remember) and when I try to restart, I just get beeps, nothing else. Three long beeps which (I think) tells me that it's a problem with the first 64k of system memory? So, what do I do? reseat RAM?

Answers :

An incorrect BIOS flash or failed flash will cause the unit to be unbootable. \015\012
