2 beeps on Boot

  1. Ok, this maybe an easy one, but i cant figure it out. i have a PC that when through 3 power outages(from the power company not the power supply) in one day. this PC was sent to me becuz the user said it "wouldnt boot'. so i fired up the PC once i received it and it worked fine. so i decided to let it run for awhile, and turn it on and off a few times through out the day just to make sure it was ok. so when i fired it over for the 3 time. it said "NO O/S found" and i got 2 beeps during POST. so i attempted to restart, and after maybe 4 or 5 times. the OS loaded again, and is working fine. i logged on under the local account. and its fine. so my question is, Is there something wrong with the MBR? i thought maybe the video card went becuz of the power outages. but it worked??? so it couldnt be that. so let me know what you guys think. thanks

    Sorry I can't answer your question. But my computer sometimes says something like invalid boot disk, press any key to try again. Usually after hitting another key all is good though and it loads up. Happens about once every 4 reboots. Wierd.

    I dont think vga is your probs, when vga become troublemaker usually your monitor will not show anything, black.
    I think your prob is HDD or memory, check if your HDD become corrupt, my comp starting refuse to boot before my hdd dead..sniff still sad if remember it.
    Or your memory not place properly or become defective too ( i hope not).
    Keep searching.....:grinthumb
