Would be great if someone could clarify what is wrong with my computer before I go off and spend a fortune on getting it fixed!
I have an old Hewlett Packard Pavillion 7970. About a week ago it seized up so I restarted it. On restarting I got a blue screen saying that I should restart again and if problems persisted I should follow the instructions. Annoyingly I didn't take much notice of the error and just restarted it.
On doing so the computer started but there was no picture to the monitor at all, I have since checked the monitor with another computer and it works fine.
Anyway I think I restarted it again and I got a series of long beeps. Just one beep repeated ad infinitum. I am not totally sure what this is as I am not totally sure what make the motherboard is. The HP site doesn't seem to specify. Anyway I think it could be the Ram. Unfortunately the PC comes witH RD ram which is much more expensive than the normal so am reluctant to spend £100 odd to replace it without being sure that this is the problem. Apart from anything else no new computers seem to be installed with this. I am tempted to just trash it and buy a new computer but being somewhat impoverished I want to try and fix it first!
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
