Anyone know the sequence/meaning of the various bleeps when starting a computor.
Mine was working perfectly until got a message telling me I should back up & replace hard drive.
Replaced hard drive & still nothing.
Machine gives a series of bleeps, 4/5 then 2 then 1 but nothing happens.
Tried changing memory still same.
Tried rebooting with xp cd in drive hoping to reinstall software.
Still the same.
Hard drive working as can be heard spinning.

As you will see it also depends on which make of BIOS is fitted.

Thank you all.
Downloaded the beep codes & found out it was the graphic card not seated properly.
