To answer your question, it will be important for the members to know precisely what the beeping sound was, that is, how many beeps the computer sounded. Different beep sequences mean different things.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

In order to interpret the beep pattern you are receiving we need to know exactly what version of BIOS your computer has. Probably the easiest way to do this is to download and install the Belarc Advisor by clicking HERE. Run it, and it will produce a report. Look for the version of BIOS on your computer. I just ran it on mine and it looks like this:

In my case my BIOS manufacturer and version is:

Pheonix/Award Technologies, LTD 6.0 PG 3/08/2004

If you can get us this info, then we can help interpret the beeps.

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
