    I have a Pen ll 400mhz, 8mb video, 80GB hd,

    When I first start the pc it will work for a few minutes then it shuts down (black screen) then I start it back up it beeps at me, 1 long 2 short beeps.
    I turn it off, restart the pc 3-4 more times before it will stop beeping at me and boot up. this time it was working ok then I tried to get online, it started all over again.

    This last time when I finally got it started up, I waited about 30 minutes before I turned the cable modem on to get online so far it is working, but at anytime I know it will shut down.
    When this nice pc :eek: (that I am about to throw out the window) does it's thing I can be online or not.
    I am thinking it could be the video card or mb, it sure acts like a short somewhere.
    I ran Spybot, Adaware and Norton Virus, found nothing
    I did a deep scan, Defrag and had Norton check for problems with system and hardware found nothing.

    Thank You very much for taking time to read this

    1 long 2 short beeps indicates a Video Card Failure.

    Remove and reseat the card to eliminate any connector issues.

    I have removed and reseated the video card several different times.
    Now what the pc is doing: freezes up then I have to shut down.
    I guess the best thing to do is buy a new video card.
    Thank You so much for your help
