Bios Beeps on boot up

Post by GerryD » Sat Dec 13, 2003 7:24 pm

When my pc boots up prior to loading windows, the bios gives two beeps
(dee deet) which it repeats periodically. On the blue HPT screen which should show my two hard drives, only my C drive is shown. Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

Grateful for any help or advice

Thanks for the input and help

Looks like its memory related - After powering down I removed each stick of ram and then re-inserted only one and re booted. Then repeated this.
This seemed to sort the problem - I just need to find out if its the ram or the DIMM socket thats at fault.

Anyway, I up and running which is the main thing.

Sometimes the RAM works itself slightly loose, and reseating the stick is all that is required.

Have a wee dram on me! :D
