Cannot start my PC

Imagine switching on the computer without a graphic card: - it gives continuous beeping. The problem is, that even with a graphic card installed it still seems as if there is none since the computer still beeps continuously. A new graphic card was tried but the problem still persisted. Do you think it’s the motherboard?

Hi, continuos beeping usually means either - No Power, or Loose Card, or a Short somewhere.

Sorry I can't be more helpfull.

Hi again - it might help others in this Forum if you give a bit more detail - ME/XP or ? - AGP slot or PCI ? Make of Graphics Card ? Cheers.

Thanks for your answer but if I have to start my system from the command prompt, what is the phrase I have to type?(From A:)

Don't type anything, just put floppy fully in and then switch on pc.

If you can start with a Win98 floppy disc at A:\ type this

A:\>SCANREG /RESTORE press enter and choose a old date to put back, use the arrow keys and enter key
