system starts up beeps shutsdown

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So im desperate to fix my cousins computer after trying to put in a new video card. Before i explain my problem before i attempted to install the graphics card, everything was working properly. After cleaning the inside of the case, and the heatsink since it had a lot of dirt inside, i took the old GPU out and put the new one in. On startup the computer was making a continuous beeping noise, and the computer runs its ?dos? startup showing memory tests and what not and before i can try and get into the bios to see why its beeping it shuts down. so thinking the problem could be the PSU i wanted to put everything back together to keep the system running till we got a new PSU. So with everything back together it still has the same symptoms and ive continually checked connections and had my mom check it out who knows a good amount about computers?? any suggestions??

i was thinking maybe
-fried mother board
-maybe hit something while iw as messin with the heatsink?

Does it still work with the original video card?
If so maybe the new one is bad?
Try the new video card in another computer to eliminate it as the culprit.
Also did you remove the original video drivers before installing the new card?

Overheating possibly? Did you bump the heatsink to hard so its not touching the CPU? You might need to reseat the entire CPU and heatsink, sometimes they don't like to be "wiggled" around.

First thing I would try is the original video card though.

yea i put everything back into place including the original video card.. and no i didnt uninstall the old video drivers before i removed the old video card. im not so worried about the new vid card seeming as how the old one should work fine and the computer is still malfunctioning. but i did mess around with the heatsink alot since the stupid stock intel one was so hard to remove. I dont really know how to set a heatsink right but i guess i can get one of my friends to help who is pretty knowledgeable on that stuff any other suggestions?! thanks for the help really appreciate it!

It may do, just take out the battery, leave it for about 2 minutes, then put it back in.

Almost always just unplugging the PSU from the wall, jumping the CMOS to the reset position, taking out the battery for about 10 seconds, putting the battery back in, putting the CMOS jumper back to its original spot, and plugging back in your PSU will fix the problem for you in this case.

As a side note if that doesnt work, you need to unplug every PCI card and HDD you have and just turn the power back on with the CPU & RAM plugged in.

Is it possible your video card needs some additional power?

Don't be alarmed though, computers can take a serious beating (relatively speaking) and keep on ticking. Hell the other day I was powering down my laptop, closed the screen, threw it in my backpack, came back to it about 5 hours later, and the thing was hot enough I couldn't touch it. It had stalled when I closed the screen prematurely and was just suffocating in my backpack for 5 hours. I let it cool off for an hour and it booted up just fine.
