  1. 3 beeps pent Pro wont start.

    I have a friend who has a Pent Pro / 16MB running Win95.

    We tried to load Juno and it froze. We shut it down and when we started it up again we get 3 beeps with some time in between each of the 3 beeps.

    Couldn't get the case open. It has two "levers" on one side of the case that slide up to release part of the panel but it's holding on at the front or back.

    Didn't have time to play w/ it but will be going back. Must be a screw or two involved.

    Any ideas about the beeps or anyone have a case like his (from my less than stellar description?

    Honestly give it a proper Viking Funeral. And get a new pc...Just my opinion....Something that old really isnt worth saving, especially when you can get a brand new complete computer system for around $500

    If you can tell us the make/model of the mobo and possibly the BIOS-manufacturer, we may be able to help you further.
    3 Beeps is normally a memory-chip/board or VGA-card that is not seated properly.

    See if you can turn those levers 90 degrees in one direction or another.
