Well, when ever I turn on the PC the display wont come on, Ive swapped out parts into a spare PC and figured it was the motherboard.

When ever it is switched on it will boot and it sounds like its starting up, the moniter works so its not that either.

I have tried useing one stick of ram and no sticks at all. I always get the same error.

When it gets a ways though its boot process I will hear; *buzz*, *buzz*, *beep* over and over agian. Hmm any thoughts?

Those beeps you hear are BIOS beep codes. You can interpret them if you know the mfg. of your BIOS. What is the make and model of the motherboard?

Are you saying that the computer is working are there are no more beeps? I would think we should take care of that before worrying about sound. If this computer is operational, download siw. It should give us the motherboard model, which BIOS you have and your sound chip

Ahh, forget the sound card I fixed it and it was on another computer.


No the other computer is not functional at all. And It cannot display anything so I cannot download anything. Unless I somehow get ESP =D
