    Each time the computer boots up the computer must past the POST.

    If the computer does not pass any of the tests, your computer will receive an irregular POST. An irregular POST is a beep code that is different from the standard one or two beeps. This could be either no beeps at all or a combination of different beeps indicating what is causing the computer not to past the POST.

    1 long, 2 short - Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.

    Any other beep(s) - RAM problem.

    Thanks for the post.

    However, you should give credit to the site where the info was obtained from.

    Like... quoted and referenced from ComputerHope.com

    That way people could go to that site for all the info.

    Hmm. Lots of sticky's in General Hardware already - maybe move it to Motherboards & Memory and sticky?

    As I said in post #3, there's a million stickys in General Hardware already, I'd recommend you ask for it to be moved to Motherboards & Memory then stickied.
