Three Long Beeps and no video output.


Intel 945G Motherboard.


I find if I put only one stick of memory in and put it in either of the first two slots I get the beeps.


If I put only one stick of memory in and put it in either of the last two slots I get no beeps. But I still get no video.


The OS should be, if it'd come up, WinXP SP3

looks like according to intels website 3 beeps is memory error. If it was working before and not now, then something as gone wrong-the reason your not getting beeps or video in the second slot, is because the first 2 slots are the primary slots, the system probably wont recognize anything in those slots unless there is memory in the first two. Do you have any other memory modules to test in it, or another computer to test those modules in? because it could be either the RAM or the slots themselves causing you this problem-easiest way to find out is to test with other hardware/computer.
