Hello. Thanks in advance for reading the thread and trying to help.
A year ago I bought this pc:
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+, MMX, 3DNow, ~2.2GHz
320 GB Total
MSI NX7600 GS (NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS)
LG Flatron L1919 S
Realtek AC97 Audio
Altec Lansing Speakers
Microsoft SideWinder Mouse (IntelliPoint)
Windows XP Home Edition
I know I'm missing the information about the motherboard and I can't get it right now, all I can remember is that it's an MSI SLI ready motherboard, also 64-bit ready.
The pc worked fine for about a year, when something strange happened.
When I tried to boot it it gave me a long beep (about a second) and it kept doing that every time it tried to boot. I guessed it was the power source and the beeping code is indeed an indication of that, at least according to google.
I opened the case just to see what's going on, saw nothing strange and closed it.
The next day, I gave it a try again, pressed the power button and the pc started normally.
But that was the last time it managed to boot.
I would post this in the power supply section but I'm not really sure the problem is that because, well, it managed to boot again that time and common sense says, when power supply goes bad it can't come back. Today I tried booting again without hard-drives or any other drives but the problem was still there. I checked all the cables coming out of the power supply to see if they're in their right place and everything seemed ok. Any ideas?
I hope you can help. Thanks again.
