Hi, I'm fairly new to this forum. Recently my computer started to have trouble starting up. When I press the start button, the computer power button flashes and I get 3 beeps. 1 long and two short. I looked into a thread on this forum. I cannot post the link to the thread because my post could is not greater than 5. It says that I have "Failure in video system- An error was encountered in the video BIOS ROM, or a horizontal retrace failure has been encountered." I'm not very experienced in computers but I know enough to get around. So what does this mean? Also I can sometimes get access to the computer. Once in a while, the computer boots up. All help is appreciated.
