I am new to the site and not expert by any means with PCs,so I apologise beforehand!
I have a mesh xp 2000+rd system running with an asus motherboard. On switching on the other day my monitor would not pick up signal and, although the system sounds as if it is starting up fine I am getting a constant bleep bleep sound as if it is some sort of alarm,this is constant while the system is switched on and as stated I have no signal pick up on the monitor.
I have tried replacing the agp graphics card,the hard drive,checked all cables are secure,checked memory stick,could it be the bios battery, or a faulty agp slot?.(I have another system and this works fine on the same monitor)
I am opened to any suggestions!

You may need to get your motherboard manual out for the exact meaning of your beep codes.

How did you check the memory stick?

What has happened with the system lately? (new/changed/removed hardware or software) Any voltage surges or lightning strikes. We you in the case prior to this happening (and did you use an anti-static wrist strap and unplug the system from the wall)?

I always change the BIOS battery when I'm inside the case - it's too easy and too cheap not to do it "just in case".

This is eerily similar to my last problem - and it was because I didn't unplug the system from the wall. I recall touching the memory chip before I realized this - but didn't feel anything. I tried resetting the CMOS, tried a nother vid card (didn't do the hard drive's tho').

I finally bit the bullet (and used it to justify upgrading to 2 gB of RAM :thumbsup: and got more RAM. Put it in and everything worked just fine! But it was a very expensive lesson to learn! :flowers:
