    all beep codes i find don't include 1 long beep ever 2/3 secs

  • jd30 Feb 28, 2008


    I have changed graphics card. Tried brand new memory modules. reset CMOS after each config change.

    Now, I don't have any drives attached but sure that can't be problem.

    No site gives diagnosis for 1 long beep every 2 seconds.

    Any ideas ?

CPUs do not have drivers. They do not contain LAN, Audio, or Video components. These are part of the motherboard they are installed upon. You need to provide the
motherboard manufacturer, model number, and revision number, along with the specific Operating System you are running. We can then help you find the driver(s) you need.
