Apparently your computer is not completing post.  Not even approaching loading and starting Windows.  My first educated guess is that IRQs 11 and 12 are being "fought over".  Was something recently added or removed? What exactly is the make and model of: the computer and its motherboard?  Desktop, correct?  If so, it might be time for a "bench test/build".  If you have never done one before, you might want to have a computer friend help you, after you've used another computer to locate and download the beep codes and light behavior for your computer's specific motherboard; after you both are properly grounded; remove everything externally and internally; beginning with motherboard and power supply...testing; adding one stick of memory at a time, test; adding keyboard and mouse, test; and so on.

For later on, do you have the XP install and/or repair DVD [set]?  Any usb boot sticks?  Any other boot DVDs?

Hi, thanks for the answer.

Nop, i have been using usb mouse and keyboard since 2012.

Desktop computer

motherboard: Asrock K7VM2

I don't have any xp instalation disc / usb, etc.

The thing is that this computer was fine yesterday, idk what happened.

i tried unpluggin all usb things, and still have the same problem.

Will try with memory ram.

 

@edit: unplugged 1 memory ram, and computer did 3 beeps when i turned it on. Followed beeps guide, unplugged second one and plugged the first one on the same place, same error.

Unplugged both and swapped their place, and now computer works fine. Idk what happened, help me i think my computer is going to explode.

 

@edit2: is there a way to know if both memories are working? discard memtest86 i don't have pendrives T_T

If you have a bland CD burn UBCD and do the memtest+86. Use Imgburn and a write speed of 4X.

Sounds to me that you've solved the issue by re-seating the ram..good thinking!

Often, but not always, a reseating of everything inside and outside solves problems.

I've been given several "dead computers" that just needed RAM or the CPU re-seated; or RAM replaced.

Hahahha look all the people that answered to my problem, thanks guys!!!

 

Seems like both memories are working fine downloaded Aida64 and it showed that i have the same amount (1 memory of 512 and 1 of 256 both ddr2).

And computer works fine now, and even faster. I think 1 memory was (i don't know the right word in english haha, it is not my main language) maybe not well setted.
