    Guys,
    Most weird problem!After updating my Graphics crad with the latest drivers,my machine gives One Long,Three Short Beeps while booting,which according to my Mobo manual indicates No VGA Detected,and then freezes completely.
    Now,the strange part is that when I press the Power Button for some time,the machine recovers from its freezed state and boots normally.

    Also,this does NOT occur everytime I switch on my PC.It is random and erratic

    Is it a problem with the corrupt driver or my PCI-E slot or my card itself??

    To note:When my PC boots finally in an OS(Vista.XP),I can do everything including playng games for long hours without any crashes or freeze ups.
    My mobo has got two other PCI-E slots of the same config as the one the graphics card is currently fitted into.

    I'm at my wits end.Please help.

    Give us your computer specs. What motherboard do you have? What psu do you have? What new graphics card did you buy? What operating system are you using?

    It could be the card isn't pushed all the way into the slot. Make sure it is. It could be the new card is bad (it happens). Did you have any weird problems before changing out the graphics card?

    If you have the disc for the MB then install the chipset drivers......

    One long 3 short beeps points to your memory (Ram) failure

    Can anyone tell me urgently is there any difference in

    speeds/transfer rates or anything whatsoever between the two PCI-E

    X16 slots((one blue and one black) in ASUS P5Q-E mobo?Or are they

    exactly identical.?


    This is because I need to shift my Gfx card from blue to the black

    slot and I'm worried about a performance downgrade.

    And regards to megabite:No its not Memory,its No VGA detected,as specified by my manual.Anyway I have tested my memory with memtest86+.No errors.
