These beeps are very specific to the actual model of the desktop you have. The NetVista had several model of that name and each one used a different motherboard and as well aa different BIOS vendor. In most of the research for this it is evident that either the processor is failing or the motherboard itself has had a failure.

Try resetting the system by powering down the system, remove the power cord from the back of the computer tower, now push the power button to "bleed" off any residual power in the systems capacitors. Now replace the power cord and power the system back up. If you still hear the same boot codes and have no picture, then I would suspect that the failure is with the motherboard. It is very hard to kill a processor if it is secure under the heatsink. It is always possible though that the processor overheated because of dirt, hair etc., blocking the flow of air through the heatsink.

Hello, i have an IBM net vista PC which is using 4 RIMM memory modules of 256Mb each, i removed one of them and later returned in position but from then henceforth my computer cant boot,instead its...


The IBM beep code indicates no power, loose card, or short. Was the computer unplugged when you removed the module? The first thing I would do is remove all modules, blow out any dust in the memory slots, and reinsert all. While you are in there insure any cards, sound, video, are firmly seated.

Netvista 6350 lost screen connection after BIOS password reset


If there a separate AGP Video Card in the system? If so, is there also a VGA connector on the motherboard? If you have both, try swapping the screen over to the other one. You may have reset the default video card back to the motherboard.

However, it looks as though you are using onboard video as you appear to be using 256Mb shared RAM for the video memory as your total should be 1536Mb.

In that case, you may need to do a rurther BIOS reset. You can find the complete instructions here
