Ok one of my friends asked me to work on her computer, i try to turn it on but nothing happens except i'm getting beep codes from the mother board. Its a compaq so i went here http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/compaqbeep.htm
but the beeps dont match any beep code. It beeps for like 3 seconds then it doesnt do anything for like 4 seconds then it beeps again and it just keeps going through this cycle. Anyone know whats up or got any ideas. I tried taking the ram out and turning it on again but it did the exact same beep thingy.

i've never heard beeps before they were pretty long, longer the ok start up one. It beeped for a good 6 seconds without stopping or pausing then paused for awhile and did it again.

What model compaq? I will see what I can find out about beep codes from them.

Try the ram in another slot.

Can you try another video card?

Try going to hp.com and see if they have the beep code there for that model compaq
