One long beep then three short beeps when computer starts up, won't display

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I went to turn my computer on this morning, and after booting into windows and logging in, it almost immediately froze for about a minute, before the display went black, and there was a long beep then three short beeps, like beeeep beep-beep-beep.

Now, whenever I turn it on, it doesn't display the BIOS start thing, and makes the 1 long 3 short beeps.

 

My specs are

 

asus p5ql-e

intel q8200

asus hd 4850 512mb

4 gb ddr2 ram

 

any idea what's wrong?

My google fu tells me that 1 long and 3 short beeps is the video card. Remove and reseat it, unfortunately it appears that it does not have onboard video with that mother board so you may have to borrow a card for testing.

Well it's fixed now, not quite sure what I did but I stripped the computer down and put it back together again, it may have just been that the gpu wasn't in right or something (not sure)

 

anyway, thanks!
