Question about PC Desktops
Does this also happen without the battery inserted. Unplug everthing possible including DVD drive and external devices.
According to this site: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/compaqbeep.htm one long neverending beep is also bad RAM. If you've replaced the ram then the only other explanation is the memory controller on the main board, looks like you'll have to replace that too. First check that the RAM is inserted properly. Try a single RAM module if possible. Does this unit have built in RAM? If so then the main board needs to be replaced. Also make certain that your new RAM is the proper type and speed.
