    Thank you RUW' but the problem was in Bios.
    Taking out the bios-battery(one leg) for 5 minutes was enough.
    Is located under the wifi, on the motherboard is wrote ''batt''.
    Hope it's usefull for all.
    A ''specialist'' said to change the motherboard because the beeps, that means problems with video card.I did not believed him so I've done it myself.
    Thank you guys.

Re-seat the memory card, clean it if necessary with pencil eraser (the metal connectors). If it won't work, I think it's time to replace the memory card with the new one(s).

    One long beep two shorts is signal for malfunctioning of the display/ VGA card. If the VGA card has shared memory, there could be the memory card(s) defect.

I have a compaq evo N620c and am trying to format it with xp. right now it doesnt get past the black screen where it says" We apologize for the inconvenience but windows did not start succesfully" and then...


When you place your Windows XP Disk in the drive, ensure that as the Notebook starts to boot, the words "Press any key to boot from disc ..." is on the screen and then press any key. If you do not get that option choice, go into the Notebooks BIOS and set first boot option to CD or DVD, then try again.
If the system you have on the Notebook is newer than the verion of XP that you trying to install, the Notebook will default to the newer system. A real pain! so make it boot from the CD not the hard drive with the bios settings.

Windows XP Pro hangs on reboot after installation


Try removing your AGP card and enabling the onboard graphics again. It is possible your Radeon is a 3.3v, but this board only supports 1.5v cards. Take a look at the manual at ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GERG2/BV2RG2_English.pdf
