Hi, This problem might be with bios of motherboard.so download the correct bios update file for that system and update.when you update the system make sure that system connected with ups.this problem will be solved.
search for a string value named LegalNoticeCaption and LegalNoticeText(create if its not there). Enter the value of LegalNoticaCaption "WARNING" and Put the Message you want to Display is the value field of LegalNoticeText.
Next time the windows boots your message will be displayed!
When a PC Boots up, it goes through a series of tests called
"power-on self-test " or POST.
If an error is found, the O/S will produce a specific tone or tones.
For example, It may be 1 Short and 1 Long. This tells the user what is wrong and why the PC won't Boot properly.
Take particular notice of the exact series of beeps.
To decipher the message, you should know what BIOS your PC has.
Otherwise, Google "POST beeps" and you should be able to figure it out.
Theres a possibility that the problem is with the Motherboard or the memory, try reseating the memory or try to replaced it,,,click on this link so that you can make sure of the exact problem of your computer, just make sure of how many beeps you will hear from the computer.
Hope this will help... Your response is very much appreciated...
If it won't go past the splash screen, and you have replaced the CPU, I agree that it is probably the motherboard.
One other test you can do is, remove the memory chips, and any cards that are plugged it, and see if it beeps on start up.
If it does, count the beeps. If it doesn't it is the motherboard.
If you get beeps, plug the memory back in, and try again. Listen for beeps. Let us know what you find.
And I don't know if Compaq's do this (Dells do) when you turn it on, do the fans spin up normally? Or does it sound like a small jet? Speaking of which, do you see the fans spin up at all?
