Hi all,

How are you? I've a computer problem that I'd like to seek help with.

1st, I switched on my computer, and after it loaded to my desktop icons, it hanged. So I switched off the power.

2nd time, it loaded ... but the monitor screen is black/blank. So i switched off the power again.

3rd time, I switched on, and the monitor's "on/off" button blinks without proceeding to load. I switched off the power.

4th time, I switched on and it had a beep error message. it's like beeeep, slight pause, beeeep. It continues like that.

Other problem before this occurs was my computer rebooting on its own.

I have Phoenix-Award BIOS ROM. I'm running Windows XP Home.

Sounds like hardware error to me. Thing is i'm not sure which.

Hopefully the present information helps.

Thanks very much!

*edit* UGH! I think I might have post in the wrong section. Pls move this topic to "internal hardware" or other appropriate place. Thanks.

i had somewhat the same problem as you. my computer constantly restarted (crashed) on its own when i installed new ram... a LOT. then i took it out yesterday and cleaned out the insides because it was extremely dusty. that sort of seemed to help the problem a little bit. it only crashed once so far. also i did get a beeping noise form my computer too yesterday after i cleaned it out (actually it was like a continuous high pitched noise) but it was because i forgot to hook the power back up into my video card. hope this helps.

motherboard: Chaintech CT-SK8T800
I think my video card is included with the motherboard....

by "model of computer" ... do you need my CPU speed, ram memory, hard drive space?

I cannot even find a picture of one. I was trying to see what expansion slots you have. Perhaps you can get a cheap PCI or AGP video card (depending on what you have) and giving that a try
