I have a toshiba Tecra S1 laptop running windows XP. I am unable to boot it up. I get 2 short beeps, 1 long beep, a pause and 3 short beeps. Then the beeps start all over. This does not happen each time I try to boot, sometimes it just does nothing. I have tried to attach it to an external monitor and I was able to successfully boot it up once, but then I got an "unknown video error" and the screen changed resolution (The screens were huge). It had automatically reported the problem to Microsoft when it did boot this time and Microsoft came back with a possible resolution, but I was unable to read it due to the resolution and the system shut itself down. It wont boot up again on the monitor, just getting the beeping and sometimes nothing at all.
Prior to this I had been having a few crashes which reported a driver problem, but the system was unable to identify the driver which was having the problem.
First question, any Ideas what my problem is, I am guessing it is a problem with my video driver, but I am certainly no expert, and secondly, do you know of a way to retrieve the resolution from Microsoft - it just might have the answer.
Thanks in Advance - Beth
