hi, my friend has a computer running vista and once windows has loaded up it seems to crash, processor light just stays on and nothing works! tried running in safemode but dose the same thing. wont load from recovery point as after pressing F11 it just says "checking vumRam" or something of the sort. got no recovery disk! any Help would be great thanks

1 beep then 2 beeps would indicate a video problem.

First thing to try with your graphics card is to remove it then reseat it and see if that makes a difference. Also with the beeps ,are you hearing 1 long and two short beeps or some thing else? Do you know what the make/model themotherboard is?
