Two things

1. check your memory dimms are sloted in properly. You can remove and re-slot them back into the motherboard.

2. reset the bios on the motherboard.

    I still feel this is a memory issue. I would suggest you have the memory tested using the software available at the link below

These are "beep codes" which are telling you something. The computer runs a "Power On Self Test" and if anything is wrong, it tells you that with this beep code. There is always a pattern to the beep code as you have noted. You need to know the make and model of your motherboard. then you can go to the website of the manufacturer and look up the beep codes. It will tell you something like:

Pattern 1 = no keyboard attached
Pattern 2 = no memory installed
Pattern 3 = no boot device detected
etc.

Armed with that information, you know what to do. If your BIOS is an AMI BIOS, the three short codes means there is a problem with the first 64K of your memory. Have you been inside the case? Could you have bumped the RAM?

Hello,
These beeps sound exactly like that of the RAM. If you are not too skeptical about going inside your PC, you can simply remove the RAM and reseat it back firmly. Sometimes this happens that the memory loses good connectivity and would just need a reseat.

Thanks,
Lolita

Hi there,

When you installed the software, the first thing you should see on the monitor is the change in the resolution,contrast,hue etc and it should ask you if you agree or not.
The software comes with a manual and the manual should tell you what PC (windows Xp, 7, vista etc) is compatible for it.

thanks,

George.

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.

No signal on monitor when card is seated


the problem occured probably because of a power shortage of motherboard battery malfunction, if your motherboard has an integrated graphics card you then need to enter setup and disable it or choose which graphis card your pc has to use but you have to do this while connected to the on-board vga slot as the other one won't be working, you will problably find the choice under the
'integrated periferals" menu in the setup menu, and to access it you have to press the "DEL" button when your pc starts-F10 in some devices-
