    Hi,

    I have a Powerspec 9130, Windows XP system and I'm getting 3 long beeps on power-on. No video -- monitor locks up & must be unplugged & plugged back in, whereon it locks again. I'm assuming this could signify a bad video card (I think it's a NVIDIA 4.8.2), but was wondering if anyone knew for sure before I replace it.

    All I can find in my BIOS code research is that three longs means keyboard, but I'm not even sure which BIOS code I would have.

    Thanks!

    I only have 1 memory. How do I verify whether it is the memory that is malfunctioning? Do I just have to replace stuff until the computer works again?

    Hi,

    i checked with the model in the support site of ur system, it says that it has 2 memory cards, u have to open the tower and check right above the round battery slive color, there will be two memory cards with plastic clips holding both ends of the memory cards. take one of them out and check whether it is booting, if not take the other one out and check whether do u here any beep sound, if u hear the beep sound then u r mother board is fine, if not it is an issue with the motherboard.(y)
