Hi!

Those beeps sounds like my computer did once. The problem then was that my graphics card wasn't properly seated in its slot.

Best regards

Thomas

You didn't state which Bios you have, but looking at the error code for award and ami bios, your indication is most likely a memory problem. Try reseating the memory. Then if you have simms take two out at a time to help isolate the faulty module.

Look in the manual; there will be a list of error codes associated with the beeps. Failing that, go to the packard bell website and look it up/emial them the indications. Different bios's have different meanings for the beep codes.

It is definately a video adapter problem. Generally the Packard Bell has a built in video adapter so disable it on the motherboard and insert a new video card in the PCI or ISA slot to check out the problem.

The FIX is... reseat your video card,,, i had this issue myself... the adapter is slight out of the connector.. reseat it.. this will fix.... if not then try re-installing the video driver.. it should not come to that!!
