Answers :

The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.

This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.

If its onboard VGA (Video Card chip built on the motherboad, which I believe it is with a Compaq computer), it is possible the video chip went bad or might be a RAM problem. You can try to open up the case (unplugged of course) and take the RAM out and put it back in, or if you have more than one RAM chip try each one separately.

\015\012If you had another computer that uses the same type of RAM, you could try the RAM chips in another computer to make sure it is not the RAM that is causing the beep code.
