Beep Code..

  1. Hi,

    I recently posted that my comp wouldn't boot. Well, I thought I may have blown the mobo so I changed it (Asus 8NA SLI Deluxe), seeing as I didn't even get beep codes on start-up. However, after installing a new mobo (same one as above) I now get a beep long, two short (I can hear the intake of breath)....

    After checking Bios Central and FAQ's here, it appears I have a video adapter error. I've taken the video card out, put it in, sworn at it etc, etc...but still the beeps.

    Would it also be the case that my video card is knackered?

    I'd appreciate some advice guys n girls before I burn another lump of cash..

    500w Mercury PSU
    AMD 4000+
    2 x 250gb HDD
    Asus A8n SLI Deluxe
    Nvid 6800 Ultra GFx

    Many Thanks...

    One way to check for certain if it is you video card that`s fried, is to try it in another system.

    However, the beep codes are usually quite accurate. Therefore, if it says your video card is broken, then probably it is.

    To add to Howard's post, if you've got a spare card or can borrow one from a friend, plug it into your current system to see if you get boot. But, as stated, the card is probably fried.
