    umm, ive had a beeping noise befor but that was when i didnt have my ram chip pushed in al lthe way... there is a noise being made but i think it is from the computer and its like tick tick tick tick tick very fast, and every tick the light flashes on the front my keybord lights flash, my mouse flashes. yet my monitor does not respond. im thinking that the PSU is not giving enough power to the pc, for the card to work now, iono
