The beeps are possibly post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off. WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in. Open computer and reseat memory Sometimes when the computer is moved or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer. Swap memory location If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory. Try another computers memory Test all power and data leads that attach from motherboard to your hard drive IDE SATA make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty If its a flat 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail. Check the graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust reinstall it Restart your computer the found new hardware wizard should activate a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy drive have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty Computers need all Power and Data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error also check the keyboard for secure dust free connection ps2 and or usb

Remove the RAM and start the PC again. If you get the same three beeps then you're probably looking at bad RAM. If however, the PC makes no noise, or other beep code, then it's not the RAM and in that case it may be the graphics card. In this case, you'll need to do a reflow/resolder of the graphics chip with a hot air gun.

If this was helpful and informative, please give it a Thumb Up. Thank you.

My hard drive has system but when i try to boot from usb or cd room for new system it's freeze and doesn't start up with usb boot or cd room


You didn't provide any details on what OS you are running or trying to load, but here are some steps to verify.
1. Ensure that the procedures you used to create your bootable USB device or bootable CD are correct. These will not boot unless they have a boot loader installed properly on them.
2. While running your existing system, ensure that you can actually view the files on your USB device or CD (in case either device is not actually working).
3. Ensure that the BIOS settings set the boot priority to USB or CD ahead of the hard drive.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Start > Run > MSCONFIG
Untich the program which is causing the program. Apply and OK.
Restart your machine once.

If you have a Install Cd for your version of windows, run it and select repair. If you are running vista, press F8 when the computer is booting and select System Restore (first one on list). If all else fails, re-install windows. You may or may not loose data based on the severity of the error.
