computer beeps - nothing else

Discussion in 'Windows XP Performance' started by cuevasrbt \(removethis\) @cox.net, Sep 23, 2004.

  1. I recently purchased a "All in Wonder" video card for my
    computer. I started to install the card when I remembered
    that I had to uninstall the drivers for the old card
    before I could go any farther. So, I removed the new card
    and placed the original video card back into its slot.
    Connected all the cables, etc. turned it on and the
    computer screen remained black, the computer made a series
    of beeps (6) (2) (1) and nothing happened. I never turned
    on the computer with the new card in its slot, it was
    installed and then removed without having ever been turned
    on. So I know that the problem is not with the video
    card. Any help would be appreciated.

    Make sure you didn't accidently loosen a memory strip.
    That beeping is a typical result of unseated or bad
    memory.

    Does your documentation that came with your computer have
    information on what these beebs mean ?

    Four beeps means it is related to the video card.

    You mean the computer does not POST?
    Try this link for beep codes: http://www.pcguide.com/ts/x/sys/beep/
    Make sure you don't have a stuck KB key either :)
    If it's not AGP video card, change the slot or install both cards and see
    where you get video.
