My computer was giving me troubles when booting as it was beeping 2 fast then 8 slow times, then after 10-20 seconds beeps 2 times then once. I rebooted it repeatedly and it usually finally booted after a few reboots. But now it won't boot at all. I looked for the beeps codes but the best I found was http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/amibeep.htm
which doesn't seem to contain the 2 then 8 sequence of beeps.
I have an MSI (AGP 8X) motherboard with AMIBIOS 3.31a, GeForce 6600GT video card. I would give more details but I no longer have the manual for the individual components.
I have had this problem for about 2 weeks now, and just replaced my video card's cooler which was failing. But that's not the problem since after replacing it I'm still having the same problem. Maybe my video card is burned because it wasn't getting cooled by the cooler (sometimes it manages to turn on the monitor and I can get into BIOS so probably not), or maybe my power supply isn't adequate (how can I tell?)...
Any help would be much appreciated.
