I got beeps one time and finally noticed I had a book laying on one of my keys. I moved the book and everything was fine again.
In you case unfortunately I have no idea! :eek:

Most beeps codes refer back to the RAM or Video card - try reseating either/both. Try 1 stick of RAM at a time.

What BIOS chip do you have? Award, AMI, etc.

Select the correct BIOS codes from: http://www.bioscentral.com/

the three beeps.
before the emachine screen comes up there is something
that reads

it runs to fast for me to catch it..

to give it a break before it gets broke
thanks again
