Question about HP Compaq dc7600 PC Desktop
I am trying to add a pci video card to the dc7600.
I installed the card, and, having read in the specification sheet that this will disable the onboard video which will have to be reactivated using the BOIS, I plugged in another monitor to the new card.
The computer will not boot. I get a succession of 6 beeps repeating over and over.
Did you disable the onboard video card in the BIOS after installing the new PCIx video card? Do you get this error with the onboard video enabled? This may help if not please let me know. Are the LEDs flashing colors? I will be more than happy to help you through your problem.
Blank screen and the power LED flashes Red six times, once every second, followed by a two second pause, and the computer beeps six times. (Beeps stop after fifth iteration but LEDs continue flashing.) Pre-video graphics error. For systems with a graphics card: 1. Reseat the graphics card. Power on the system. 2. Replace the graphics card. 3. Replace the system board. For systems with integrated graphics, replace the system board.

Yes 6 beeps indicates that there is no video card. Remove the card and plug into another PCI slot as some like to be the first PCI bus used. You will more than likely have to remove a sound card or some other interface do this plug in your new card into the slot and power on.
If there is still 6 beeps there are two possibilities
1 The Video PCI card id faulty
2 The Card is not compatible with your machine.
I do hope this helps you you also may check that you don't have to disable the card within the bios settings as sometimes even though the hand book tell you it should auto change sometime you will have to do this manually.
