I recently made the mistake of installing software which contained a tages driver onto my computer, the driver is not compatible with windows 7. When I turn my computer on, sometimes it will make a beeping sound repeatedly, however sometimes it will turn on as normal, and will have no further problems. I have managed to uninstall the driver, but am still having problems turning the computer on. There doesn't seem to be any particular reason for why the computer will sometimes turn on, and otherwise just make the beeping sound repeatedly. Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks!

The beeping is coming from your PC performing a POST(power on self test).

 

Different patterns of beeps mean different things so next time it does it try to count the number and length of the beeps.

You can check out http://www.technick.net/public/code/cp_dpage.php?aiocp_dp=guide_beep_codes and hopefully show you what is going on.

 

You could also check your restore points and try restoring to a date prior to that software being installed

This is actually normal. My old PC used to do that.
