    What bios do you have? I think that beep usually means no memory so make sure the ram is seated correctly, but different brands of bios use different beep codes.

    No problem. :D Award is what I have on the computer I use most often... (I'm not as geeky as it sounds, really) so that was the first code that came to mind. I think this is the quickest I have ever solved a thread... :) Have a good weekend and good luck in all your future computing needs... :)
