Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Re: system beeps

Hi,
You have a display adapter problem. I would recommend re-seating your video card first (assuming you have a slot card as opposed to onboard video). If you have onboard video, time to find yourself a video card. Check for open slots inside your system so you know what you're looking for.
