Having problems with your HP Pavilion a1410y (RB042AV) PC Desktop ?

The computer is an HP a123on. This one has a continuous one second beep, with a one second pause. The cables have been checked, as well as the memory for connection. Could the recent graphics card addition and removal be a cause? Would new drivers for the new card need to be installed prior to installing the new card help, if/when the computer starts? Any other possibilities? Yes the HP worked well before this problem. Pls advise, THKS.


Answers :

Hi,
I think you're onto the problem, chances are that it is a recent hardware change that is causing the problem, take the card out and replace it with you normal one, if the system boots go into the BIOS and set the BIOS to defaults, save and exit. The computer will try and restart so just turn it off again and reinsert your new card and try to boot up.
If this does not work then chances are the new card is not supported by the system.



Good luck.
