5 beeps at boot - what does it mean?
Posted on 2008-11-15
Earlier today I bought a used office pc from a office supply shop.
When I booted the PC at home, nothing came up on the monitor. No text appeared on the screen during the post. I looked over the PC again and noticed that it seemed to have 2 video cards. I removed the video card for which I do not posses a cable and rebooted the machine.
The following errors were then posted...
"Intel (r) PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS
Build Number:2919 PC Dev 03/13/2003
Decompilation Or Disassembly Prohibited
Copy Right NVIDIA model P150
When I rebooted the PC, it beeps 5 times and repeats after a breif pause.
Can anyone tell me what the beeping is about?
