Hi,

I would venture that "shows winfast on monitor" indicates the type of Video Card that your PC is using. Thereafter it should go to POST showing the motherboard, BIOS, memory count and others.

Since as you posted, after Winfast nothing follows, I can only suspect that you have a motherboard problem or at least a BIOS corruption.

Please post back the brand and model of your computer or at least what motherboard.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Beeps 4 times


The beeps are from the power on self test which makes sure all hardware is working before starting the boot process. It would help to know the make of the computer but 4 beeps means system timer failure. System timer failure can be from many things need the make to help more.

The motherboard makes a 3 second beep over and over.


Nick,

That beep code usually signifies one of the devices connected to your motherboard is having an issue and the motherboard is not able to past the POST.

You will have to do some digging to determine the cause of the problem. First step, remove the RAM, and see if the error code changes.

How did the bracket brake? If it is broken your CPU or CPU Socket might have gone bad.

If you're thinking about upgrading, you might as well ditch the PC2700-3200 and upgrade to DDR2 or DDR3. PC2700 is DDR which is becoming a phased out product line. Just FYI.

Hope this helps.

As a reminder, if this post helps, please rate it. Thankyou.
