Boot Up Beeping Error

Please help,
I have replaced my floppy drive and now when it boots up it gives one long beep followed by 3 short beeps. Whats does this mean??? The monitor does not come on also. I can hear it booting for a while but it just turns itself off after a while. It is a Win95 PC.
Thanks,
Neil.

Just guessing, but sounds to me like something is not connected properly - this beeping, or something like it, can happen when a card isn't seated properly, or perhaps your new floppy drive isn't connected to the motherboard properly.
Have you got the connector the wrong way around maybe?

Sounds like a ribboncable at the CD-ROM, HDD or mainboard connector is nopt seated properly.
Also try disconnecting the FDD, if northing else works. Don't panic, it just makes it even worse.

Hi,

It is the problem with Display Card or RAM.  Check the connections between the display card and monitor. If OK, take UR display card and RAM, clean it with some cotton cloth.  Be careful, discharge your body to prevent static charges.  Also clean the slots in the mother-board. Re-insert them and see the difference.  It'll work.
