Based on the information you have provided, it appears that the issue is related to the RAM memory modules of the computer. Try replacing/changing the RAM modules. The issue occurs if the installed RAM modules are either corrupted or not supported by the computer.

My laptop does not boot to windows xp and instead beep three times. The power light flashes with every beep


The three beeps is a warning that the Power on self test reports a failure of hardware. it could be video, memory, Hard Drive, etc. If you can get into the diagnostics, you can tell more. If nothing works, It may be the motherboard.

When I turn it on I get three beeps and nothing else


Hi,

The 3 beeps are correct diagnosis for the screen problems.

reboot, keep tapping F8, till you get to
the start up screen ( black dos screen )

Try the last known good first at the top, let it roll.

If this fails, try safe mode, let it boot up, then try a system restore,
start,all progz, accessories,system tools,system restore, try go back in time.

If you cannot get into the "black" start up screen at all, your video card, has failed.

because you should get minimum of VGA graphics in safe mode.

if you do, then the video driver is corrupted and needs updating

Regards
Richard.

Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen


3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s
