    I have plugged in power to the board from the power supply with a "Y" cable

    Thanks, that may be it, as far as I can tell, my power supply is 250 watt. Not sure yet what my card needs. Am checking that out.

    Thanks again

The beeping sounds indiactes that there is not enough power going to the video card. On the power supply you will have to have a certain amounts of volts and there is a adapter on there and on the card htat will allow you to hoook power up to the back of the card. The card needs more power. Make sure your power supply meets the requirements of the card

    Are you sure that the wattage for the power supply and the video card is what the video card asks for?

    There are only 3 reasons why i video card would beep, Not enough power, low memory, or the power supply is not strong enough

I hear beeping tone in my cpu when i plug it


When the computer makes those funny sound via the system speaker, it's not doing it because it wants to be heard. The computer is trying to talk to the operator/technician and tell them what's wrong.


So here are some codes to give you an idea of what might be wrong with your PC.

Geforce fx5500 256mb agp problem


If you failed to uninstall the old card (in the device manager, not just physically) the PC is still looking for the old card but can't find it. Try starting in safe mode (hit F8 when you reboot) If sucessful, go to device manager and uninstall the old card. Then install the new card and insert the installation cd to install the drivers. If this doesn't work, you may need to install the old card to properly uninstall it. NOTE: If you don't have the installation CD for the new card, this would be the time to download the necessary driver.
After you reboot, the machine will use default drivers until the new card's driver is installed.
Best of luck.

Video to monitor problems


4 beeps means either a bad video card or bad memory.  Try to take out and reseat the video card and the RAM.  If that doesn't do it try using another video card or RAM.  In my experience, 9 times out of 10, the memory is either bad or dusty and not making contact.

3-3 is either video card or memory related.  Try to reseat your video card and see if that helps.  If nothing still, try to reseat the RAM.  If that doesn't work, try another video card.  If that doesn't work, try different memory.  If all that doesn't work, let me know and I will see what else I can do to help you out.  But from my experience, it is almost always RAM related.

5 beeps and no display


5 beeps is processor(cpu) failure

are they long? short?

Try another processor on the computer and see if it works.
do you get the same beeps if you place the old card back in?

Whats the brand and model of the motherboard?

its reads between the cpu and memory and also between the expansion slots, and possibly on top of a heatsink

let me know


Thanks,

Installing a graphics card on micron clientpro


Try removing the drivers for the old video card right before installing the card. Sounds like a driver conflict. The beeps are error codes saying what the problem is. Look up the beep error codes for your motherboard. If the geforce card is not supported by the system requirements this too will cause that problem.
