  1. WHEN I power up the pc all it does is beep; it will not stop until i power down. any answer to this annoyance. and nothing comes on the monitor but i could see lights on the dvd and floppy drive; fans running too.

    Listen carefully to the number/duration of the beeps. This is a code from the post(power on self test).

    Go HERE for a list of beep codes. You will need to know what make of bios you are using.

    when I say it beeps, i mean it just beep until I totally power down. there's no interuptions between beeps and they're all the same durations.

    Thanks

    Continuous beeping is a possible sign of faulty, or incorrectly seated ram.

    Take out your ram stick`s and clean the contacts with an eraser. Blow away the remnants and replace. Does this make any difference?

    Maybe try another ram stick, or try putting the ram in a different dim slot.

    Regards Howard :)
