CPU is unworkable or has been changed.

Specs: Windows 7
Had a power failure, and thought my Dell Flat Screen monitor #2405FPM got "fried". Started getting beeping so then I felt it was the video card. After replaced video card (ATI Radeon X1650 PRO) the computer booted up fine until I tried to install the proper drivers for the 1650 PRO. Thats when it went to sh**. The computer wouldn't \ won;t boot up properly, and the only way to get it to boot is to F1 it.

Have read and it seems that my BIOS might have changed, and my problem is I don't know what the settings were BEFORE these issues, so how can I go back and check the BIOS without having the proper config BEFORE my issues?

The gooc news is, my Dell Monitor is fine, but now my operating system is crap, and I don't know how to troubleshoot it?

Go to bios and set Default then save. What's the problem with operating system?

The beeping is a code that tells you what the problem is (or was). The problem may have been the video card, or it may have been something else. Tap the F8 key at startup to get into Safe Mode, then uninstall the video drivers. Make sure to uninstall any drivers for the old video card. Do you have the 4-pin plug connected to the X1650? Is it AGP or PCIe?

Can't help you with any BIOS settings because you didn't bother to list your board, CPU or RAM. If it's a Dell sysytem, there are very few settings that can be configured by the user.

Beep Codes:
If you use 'Load Defaults' check to make sure your CPU speed and your RAM speed is correct (sometimes sets too low), adjust if needed, or if you have the option try 'Load Optimum Settings' instead.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
