If there are no beeps, try removing one of your memory sticks to see if it will boot, no beeps means no memory check.

No sound device, just multimedia device after adding a new hard drive and Windows XP reinstall.

Are you booting in from one of 2 hard drives at start-up .. ie. do you have a dual-boot system?

If your sound works fine when using the original hard drive but not when you boot from the slave, then it sounds like a driver problem -in the slave. You'll need to download the sound drivers for XP/Slave.

I can't think of any reason why your computer should beep after you have opened and closed the case. I don't think it is anything to do with the case. It's more likely that there's a bad connection or fault (maybe you have the slave and master on the wrong cable) - or badly fitted RAM.

Count the error beeps - there is a pattern of long and short beeps. You can find a list of their meanings here:

Though having said that, I would hazard a guess that you've got the master/slave configuration wrong. If you have both hard drives on one cable (ide) the MASTER drive should be at the end of the cable.

Remember there's a primary master (c) and a secondary master - your dvd drive. A 2nd hard drive would be set up to be the primary SLAVE. You cannot have 2 'master' drives on the same cable or bus. That would cause an error beep ...

I did a complete recovery on my computer and it was taking two days. It kept saying, 'applying setting " but never did So I turned the computer off. What should I do know.

Open "My Computer" in Windows XP.

Find the icon for the hard drive you want to run ScanDisk on. You can run ScanDisk on the system's primary hard drive and also on any secondary hard drives or external hard drives. Right-click on the icon for the hard drive and select "Properties."

Choose the "Tools" tab from the hard drive properties window. The ScanDisk utility can be activated from the Error-checking box at the top of the Tools tab. To begin, click the "Check Now" button.

Note the two check boxes displayed. You will want to choose the "Automatically Fix File System Errors" box. This will perform a basic fast scan of the drive, which will take only a few minutes.

Put a check in the "Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors" box for a more thorough scan. With this checked, Windows XP will take 10 hours or longer to run ScanDisk depending on the size of your hard drive. Run this if you have noticed a problem with the hard drive's performance. For regular checks, run the basic check most of the time and the longer check only occasionally.

Hit the "Start" button to start ScanDisk.

Wait for Windows XP to finish running ScanDisk and view the report. ScanDisk will tell you what errors it found and fixed. Click the "Close" button when are finished viewing the report.

Windows wont come up


That usually means there is a disk in a drive somewhere either floppy or cd. Just remove them and restart.

However it could mean that there is hard drive trouble also. I would need more details on what you see on the screen to determine that.

Also, by saying that "it also makes a beeping noise until you hit a button" it could be a stuck key on the keyboard. If none of the steps correct the issue please reply back with as much detail as possible.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

I purchase a FreeAgent Go 160gb,getting started it does not do anything. the diolog window does not come up,unit just beeps...

If this is an External USB Hard-Drive, your problem is insufficient power provided by the USB Port.
1:- Try Another USB Port If You Have One.
2:- If you have a 2 into 1 USB Cable, connect 2 into 2 individual USB Ports ( On Computer ) And 1 into Hard-drive Unit.
If none of this works, your drive is faulty.

If your computer is still covered by warranty, call or email Compaq and ask for their assistance. They will be able to fix the problem for free or a very low price. If you do NOT have the warranty, then you may do the following:

This is because the video card you have is corrupted. If the computer won't even turn on from the start and it just beeps, then you need a new or replacement video card.

If windows xp loads, and then the monitor goes blank and the system beeps, try reloading XP again, this time format the entire Hard Drive, and install the Video Card drivers the first thing you do when your system starts.

Take you computer to a repair shop to test the video card and make sure it works. If you have another PC, then take the video card out of the PC and put it in the other (go online if you need help with that). If that doesn't work, then you have a broken video card.
