Specs: Windows 7, 3800/3 gigs
Computer has been running like a champ. I just upgraded the ram on it to add 2 more gigs. I bought the correct ram since the mother board only allows for 4gb total and 1g stick in each of the 4 slots. About 3 hours ago after a restart there popped up the screen saying:

"Warning: The boot devices have been changed. BBS boot priority will be affected. Please enter setup to check. Hit F1 to continue, DEL for setup."

Restarted the computer and was met with 1 long beep and 2 short beeps. First thing was went and got a new battery for the cpu, the problem still happens. I have pulled out all the ram and replaced and still happening. I have unplugged everything and let it sit for a while and still happening. I can feel the hard drive spinning so do not think that is the problem.

Can anyone please help me with this matter? Just spent the money to put on windows 7 4 days ago and bought this ram and now this goes and happens.

Is it the video card? Which I hope not since it is built into the mother board. Or is it the hard drive? Even though I can feel it spinning and it seems ok.

Thanks in advance.

I checked the mother board for bubbling and all the components look ok as well. I have also tried shuffling the ram around and adding one at a time in different locations and nothing has changed.
