Hi all.

Was using my pc tonight and everything was fine. Its a lenovo m55 with a thinkcentre Daytona motherboard. I run Windows 7 on it. Always run ok. I needed the power supply cable to run another pc to check something. So I shutdown the pc and removed the cable. Whenever I plugged the power back into my pc I was getting no display, it would restart itself and I would hear a bleep code of 4-2-3-3. And still no display.

I know the motherboard would be old but has anyone any ideas as to what the bleep code is indicating??

Many thanks

The following may have nothing to do with this particular thread but it may...?

"When the user installs a PCI-express video adapter in the machine they may receive a 4-2-3-3 post beep error."

If there is a PCIe device, please disconnect it and try again: If no PCIe device... can the BIOS be reached?

Gotta start somewhere.

Only pic-e device is an nvidia graphics card. Will try disconnecting it and running off onboard graphics. There is no bios screen. No display at all. I hear a few clicks before the beep code. Not sure if it's hard drive.
