    Question Beeps and nothing on screen


    I have been having some problems with my home office PC. I ended up replacing the hdd. When I booted the first time, it displayed "keyboard not found" msg on the screen. I realized it was loose, and fixed it. When it reboots, there is a blank screen and i keep hearing continuous beeps with X seconds in between. What to do?

    Continuous evenly spaced single beeps normally indicate a problem with the RAM, however the actual beep codes are different depending on what motherboard your system has, so you should determine that and then look them up in the manual.
