Yes remove the AGP card & re-set the bios. Use your manual to guide you for resetting the bios. (Bios will reset to use on-board video).

Hello,
The beeps can be either video or memory. Most likely it is memory. Check the memory.

Thanks,
Lolita

Hi Everyone , After trying to solve the start up

After this reply you will still not be able to start normally.
The boot to lan is trying to start off an image stored on a server, you normally only see this at a business.
Boot to CD is looking for a bootable CD like the disk used to install Windows.
Boot to hard drive is normal but from your post it appears that it cannot communicate with your hard drive. Normally, when you have hard drives issues, the file is corrupt and at this point the computer complains but is sounds like it just freezes which suggests to me that the controller is gone.
In short, in order to get this working you will probably have to buy a new hard drive and reinstall Windows from CD. Since the version of Windows you have is XP (if you have the disk) and support for it ended almost 3 years ago, you are probably better off just getting a new laptop. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsforbusiness/end-of-xp-support

When i install any OS "hard disk was not found" error is occuring.what is the reason for it?.

Hello Charles:
The reason your PC is saying "hard disk not found is because it isn't seeing any hard drives in your system. If your using a CD or DVD to install your OS you need to go into your Bios and set your boot settings to boot from CD-Rom first, that way it will boot from the CD or DVD first and then it will hopefully see your hard drive and start installing once it has performed its system checks.
Hope this helps, if you need more assistance just holler back.
Sincerely, Peter N.

My elitegroup p4m800-m7 mother goes on but it doesn't boot,it just gives 3 deeps

the beeping sound is the post system searching for your hard drive and other connected devices
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

Trying to install XP when disk selection comes up it reads, "Unkown disk. There is not disk in this drive". NOt sure what that means.

your drive is not being read,
have you set BIOS to boot from CD ROM,
is your CD ROM working,
is your XP CD working

Do the following
1 go to BIOS and re-set to BOOT from CD ROM
2 use another copy of XP/Win98/Vista etc to verify if CR ROM is reading the CDs else...
if you doubt CD ROM drive has a problem....
3 use a USB external CD ROM, and to do that u need to re-set the BIOS to boot from USB CD ROM

Toshiba tecra m2v s330

Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.

Pc does not power on with hard drive plugged in

When you plug in the 2nd hard drive as a single drive does the drive spin up and the computer goes through the Power on self test (POST)?
If you cannot hear the drive spin up and the computer doesn't boot up then most likely the hard drive is faulty.

I cannot boot windows xp

Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!
Mike
