Hi, ive recently ran into some problems after having setup a second hard drive ( barracuda 7200.10) and it worked quite well until my computer froze so I tried restarting it and when i try the computer beeps endlessly and the screen remains black. i theorize that my hard drive died and my computer is trying to diagnose. I had the same problem with it a long time ago and i cant remember how I fixed it. I tried everything, starting without the HDD and with different SATA cables and even tried removing and re-seccuring the Ram and i still get the beeps, help

Ps: Im running windows 10

What's the make & model of the PC? These BIOS beep codes are the clue as to what's going wrong with the hardware, so it's important we focus on those. Part of that will be figuring out the motherboard, and then the BIOS manufacturer from there.

If that's a factory-brand computer, advise us what brand name and model name and model number it is.
If that's a self-built computer, advise us what brand name and model number and revision number its motherboard is.

Are you sure it's not a BIOSTAR TA970 version 5.2 motherboard?

See if this helps.

The continuous beeps appear to be associated with the computer's memory(RAM).
Make sure all the modules are firmly seated.
Hopefully, none of the modules or the DIMM slots are damaged.

If only one stick, it usually has to be in the number one slot depending on manufacturers. Try another stick if possible and if can run memtest from boot,MemTest86 V7.3 Free Edition http://www.memtest86.com/downloads/memtest86-usb.zip
I dont have another stick to try out but it has always worked in the third slot but will try in the first and it dosent work either, i really think that my ram has nothing to do with it and that my pc cant diagnose that my HDD died so it thinks ita the Ram ??

Can you see the bios screen by hitting delete when booting, if the hard drive failed you still should be able to see that. I had a video card that went bad and made the computer network device quit, very strange.

No the screen stays black and dosen't react to keys
