Re: beeping on start up
Your motherboard has 64Mb built-in RAM and the video card needs some video RAM and has grabbed 8Mb of RAM which leaves the system with 56Mb of RAM. When you insert a 64Mb RAM module you have a total of 128Mb of which the video has grabbed 8Mb which leaves the system with 120Mb.
You can't change stop the video card from grabbing 8Mb of RAM, the RAM is essential for the video to work.
You can upgrade the RAM by removing the 64Mb RAM module and insert a 128Mb or 256Mb RAM module. You may even be able to insert a 512Mb RAM module if the motherboard will accept it, you need to check the specification of your laptop to see the maximum amount of RAM the laptop can handle.

Do you hear the beep of the BIOS, a single beep is good, meaning all systems go? If you start up with no Ram does it beep at you at all? It should!
Try removing the BIOS/CMOS battery for about a minute then replace it in the corect orientation. This sets the BIOS/CMOS to defaults.
If still no joy check all connections, including RAM and Graphics card push it down firmly.
Clean your RAM modules with tissue paper and then test them by inserting them one at a time while alternating slots.
Than check the VGA/DVI cable it tightened all the way.
Your timely rating of this soloution is much appreciated.
Hi, Beep codes denote that there may be problem with your RAM modules inside your computer Cabinet. Remove the cabinet, remove the RAM modules from the slot, clean the dust particles present and replace the RAM back to the slot properly and try restarting your system. Try 5 continuous attempts like this and at any one your system may come alive. The Beep codes may vary among different motherboard vendors. So refer to your system motherboard manual and there the interpretation for different kinds of beep code will be provided.
I hope this is helpful and solves your problem, Thanks
Hi. To start the troubleshooting, Do one thing. Clear the cmos. To clear the cmos, remove the battery and the cmos jumper. You will see JCC on the mb and it is attached to pin 1&2 You can Short it to pin 2&3 or remove it completely. Don't forget to remove the power-cord from the power supply while clearing the cmos. together with the cmos bat & jumper. After that try a different ram and a different vga card. At times dust get accumulated in the slot that prevent firm contact with the vga slot or the memory bank. Use a clean paint-brush and blow away the dust on the card, the mem and also the slot in the mb. Fix it firmly. try this If you need further assitance revert back Good luck Uttam
