Beeping on startup

\015 After trying to replace the memory on my pc ( was the wrong memory) i put the factory memory back in . upon powering up the pc there is a series of beeps , but the screen stays black. i have tried to pul out and reinstall the memory several times but nothing changes\015

Answers :

Hello,

1. did you have this problem before? Is this why your were replacing memory? Usually, the beeps indicate that your memory is fine. *********** board- for the most part is fine- This sounds like A Video problem- either a lose card, plug, cord, or bad slot.

2. What is the color of the light on your video monitor?

Check and make sure that you did not unplug or losen the video card. Check all the plugs and wires on all connections both inside and outside the computer. Make sure the monitor is plugged in both the back of the computer and the back of the monitor.

Again the escape key stops the flashing and after entering the correct password it appears to open windows xp pro as norm
