Video Card and System Problem
Posted on 2001-08-09
Hi I amm having this problem with my system and am hoping someone can give me some help with it.
My PC is a P2-350 with 128mg RAM TNT2 Ultra(Diamon Viper) the mainboards a Gigabyte GA-6BXE.
Now the problem is this: When I turn on the PC the buzzer starts to make an Alarm noise, and when it is doing the mem check it displays a message above the counter "Check System Health !"
Now the Alarm keeps going when the system is on, but before the alarm would "only" start to sound when some new graphics needed to be displayed to the screen.
eg. Open an image file and the buzzer would start to sound the alarm but would stop after a beep?
I have fond the problem to be the Graphics card.
When I take the TNT2-Ultra out and put in a TNT2-M64 it works fine, no alarm.
And when I put the TNT2-Ultra in my Mates PC it works fine too???
He's PC is a AMD Duron-600 mainboard a Gigabyte GA-7ZX(I think).
Could anyone know would the problem might be?
I am thinking it might be the mainboard as with the
TNT2-M64 card in my PC now I am starting to hear the buzzer beep every now and then.....
