Question about Evga e-GeForce 8600GT, GeForce 8600 GT, Graphic Card
Ok i received my new pc yesterday and installed windows vista etc, it was working great. This morning i woke up and turned my computer on and i heard 3 short beeps which were continuous and never stopped, 3 beeps > short pause > 3 beeps etc. There is no signal on the monitor and im having to resort to my old PC to find out the problem
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
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?

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.
