    Hi

    Computer about 6 years old working fine until now. I started with noticing the clock only working when the PC was turned on so I replaced the battery on the motherboard with a new to fix the problem. But now when I start the PC it first makes a long beep and then nothing else happens......no picture....

    I tried with another video card but it made no difference......

    Computer:
    INtel 440BX AGPset, PII 350MHz
    Award BIOS

    Please anyone, help!

    /Mike

    You may try reseating the RAM and VGA card. Make sure they are securely seated. Also, make sure there are no PCI cards halfway in/out.
    To troubleshoot, remove excess PCI/ISA cards like modems, NIC cards, sound cards. Once you get the computer to boot normally, reinstall the cards. Hope this helps.
