Switched on my pc earlier and all I get is beeeeeep beeeeep beeeep beeeeep beeeeep beeeeep, and a black screen. Fans are running and optical drives are alive. System is athlon2500, k7s41gx mobo with 256 ram and maxtor 80gb H/D.

it says three long beeps is to do with your keyboard

johnnyrockers link says 3270 keyboard card. What does that mean?.

Memory or Graphics Fault, I would say Memory

Recently Ive been playing Far cry on my pc and since then Ive been getting the message "virtual memory low". 256mb is not really enough to play this game.Has the memory failed?.

Shall I take the memory out of the pc I'm on now and try it in my pc. It should be the same.At least it wil eliminate that theory.

It may be different, But if it is fiscally the same to look at and will fit the slot there should be no harm in trying it But pull the Power plug on both first
