Hi there

I have had computer (vista installed) for three years (just out of warranty wouldn't you know!). I have moved address and now am having heaps of probs with the system crashing, blue screen and computer 'beeping'.
As I am not a tech person , would appreciate if someone could provide me with some help please.

System manufacturer and model?

Does the system boot now...normally and/or in safe mode?

When do these beeps occur...how long do they last...have you checked them against known beep codes for your system?

Re BSODS...let's try this.

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.

Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.
