Sudden Crash - Back to Beep Codes

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I recently installed my Geforce 8800GTS in my computer, and it was running fine for a day. Second day, I bring up Vista, and I keep getting BSOD's after about 5 minutes of doing stuff. I managed to solve this problem by cleaning out drivers and reinstalling them.
However, soon afterwards, I had a full-on crash. My monitor went blank, my computer sorta quieted down, and it started making these beeping noises.

Here's how the situation is now:
-When there is no graphics card in, there are no beep noises
-When the graphics card is swapped for a good one, there ARE beep noises
-I can't quite tell what, specifically, the beeping is coming from.
-I'm using PHOENIX bios, and have tried to listen for a beep code. However, the listings do not include a 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-etc.. It just makes long beeps about the same amount of time apart.

I realize something may have to be replaced, but at this point I can't even tell exactly what's wrong. I could really use some help. I can try to give any information that may be necessary.

EDIT: Someone on Gamesurge's IRC channel said the 8800 might have broken my PSU. I'm using a JUSTA PC 425 W power supply. It has worked for over a year, though I suppose it's possible the 8800 pushed it over the limit.

2nd edit: Seems fixed for now. Either a ghost in the machine that left after time, or a badly seated RAM. If you want, tell me whether you think I should still upgrade my PSU.

What PSU do you have in there? Is it enough power for a high end card?

425 Watt, +12V
However, in reality it doesn't matter; I have swapped the 8800GTS out for my old 6800GS for now, until I can get it working again.

Good suggestion, but doesn't seem to have changed the situation.

A continuous single beep generally indicates RAM.

Well, that was wierd...either you were right about the RAM (I basically pulled it out and put it back in) or it was one of those "Well it didn't work when I pulled the cord!" moments. Either way, I think I'll leave my old GPU in until I get a better power supply. Seeing what happened here, and the real requirements of the 8800GTS, makes me believe that would be a good investment.
