Hi xpt's,

I've a PC with a K7VM4 motherboard, and XP Home installed. Over the last week or so the PC has been playing up: after 20 mins of running fine, the PC crashes (blue screen of death).  I 've attempted a defrag which aborted prematurely. Now when I switch the unit on, the PC wont boot up at all, no bios available, the PC alarm sounds giving 7 short beeps, and the screen is totally blank.

How do I decipher the bleeps to uncover the faulty componet.

Thanks and kind regards.
