Have taken out and put back in the graphic card and memory stick, no change. Have removed battery and put back too. I notice if i remove the memory card no beeps occur (is this usual). Short of buying and trying a nes graphic card and memory card is there anything else to try? thanks
Took compatible memory card out of another PC, didnt work, replaced it back into 2nd pc and wont post now, so I have now 2 dead pcs. Is it likely that the first pc 'killed' the memory card, I dont really want to risk a third one
In a brutal way, following my "bet" that it was a RAM problem may have cost you the substituted card. My own tiny cerebral memory cleared and now the bet has changed to the motherboard.
A grandson had a P2 motherboard ex-financial advisor outfit, rejected by the IT manager because they had several fail with a burn-out on that mobo. His too burned out in time, with the same beep pattern. He was more fortunate than you, because his RAM was still OK for his new mobo.
If this problem was mine I would do as ding dong dave has suggested and replace the motherbord
