Thanks

    Hi, [​IMG] and welcome to TSG.

    Do you mean you physically reinstalled it as in, taking the card out of the slot and reseating it?

    If so, make sure it is seated properly.

    What was the nature of the virus you say you had and how did you remove it?

    Beeps are usually an indication that there is something wrong and the reason can sometimes be established by counting the number of beeps with different interpretations depending on the make and model of your computer.

    Lets have a look at some more details about your system.


    • Please download Speccy System Information Tool and save it to somewhere convenient such as your desktop.
    • Close any programs that may be running including your browser and double click Speccy.exe to run the tool.
    • Watch out for any offers to install other programs such as google chrome and untick the box(es) if you don't want them.
    • Speccy will very quickly scan your pc and create a report.
    • Top left of screen click file and select Publish Snapshot...
    • Click Yes to proceed.
    • Copy the URL to your clipboard and paste it into your next reply.

    Hi,

    You're right, I am new here but not new to technical support sites. As far as I know, you don't have to be a moderator to give advice. The only exception is the malware removal forum where there are certain qualifications you need to have to be allowed to reply to posts.
