Hi there

I'm having a problem here, I don't really know what's wrong with my com, sometimes after I have use it for about 30 mins to 1 hour, my com just hang, then after pressing the reset button, it will not load but instead keep producing beeping sounds, monitor didn't light up at all like no signal. After turning off, I tried to push the graphic card in, and ram too because I remember once a dealer told me it could be because of ram. And it works. But the thing is, this problem keep coming back...sometimes it just like that without using, just turn it on and the beeping sound come back and no signal to monitor. And it is very troublesome to have to push the graphic card and ram in everytime when it is like that.

Do you think it is time for me to change the system? I have it for about 2 years now, it's AMD Xp 2800 with Asus motherboard, 512 DDR ram, and 128 gforce 5600.

Thank you for helping me out.

It sounds 'di di di di di....' very sharp sound...it's like when the system is without ram, the sound is exactly the same. The Cpu temp is 60 C, quite steady. I have this same problem with my old com, and it was about 2 or 3 years old as well. So I just wonder could it be the same problem...

It really sounds like your motherboard is giving you headaches. I know that's the first thing I would try.

Thanks SirKenin for the suggestion, it is really the board, I found out from the websites that dustyjay gave.

Thanks for that dustyjay, my bios is an Awardbios, so the repeated beeping sound is because of the ram...look like I need to change my board soon...anyway, thank you once again.

Remember if you change the board you must always clean install Windows or you will get odd problems (or no boot at all sometimes) due to the wrong drivers being loaded.
