hi

ecs k7s5a, 2.4 athlonxp, 768Mbpc 2100 ddr, sapphire 128 mb 9700pro and xp home edition.

my system has been very stable and i'm up to date with drivers. i was having a problem with low frame rates on an old game. I had the aperature in bios set to 256Mb and some said set it to 512mb. I did this but now it doesn't boot up. I get 9 beeps then a pause then 2 beeps then a pause then 1 beep. The monitor goes straight into sleep mode. I think beeps usually mean that memory, agp card etc may be loose in mobo but I wasn't messing with the insides when this happened.

Any ideas - all i need to do is see the setup on the monitor to enter bios to change aperature back to 256 but i can't do this.

Many thanks

Thanks for the reply - any other thoughts as I can't remember what bios settings were as shop configured them for gaming

thanks
