|Hopefully someone can help me on a bit of a problem I am having. I wanted to upgrade my graphics card (was a NVIDIA 8500) so I purchased a NVIDIA 200 GTS to replace it. I needed to buy a new power supply to support the new card (needed an output of 500W, old one was 350W).|
I bought the new power supply and installed it. That went okay, the supply worked fine with my old video card and everything seemed to be in order. I received my new card (the 200 GTS) yesterday and stuck it in the slot my old card was in and now I have major issues.
My PC will not boot up and when turned on a beeping error plays. The error seems to be one short beep followed by one long beep, pause, short beep, long beep, pause and so on.
I couldn’t figure out what I had done wrong so I took the new card out and put the old one back in but it still does the same error. It seems like it doesn’t recognize either card at all.
I am hoping I didn’t screw up my pc beyond all hope.
My PC is a HP m91501. I unfortunately can’t give you complete specs because I can’t boot the computer up but here’s what little I do remember;
Windows Vista Premium
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz, 2400 Mhz, 4 core(s), 4 logical processors
NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT 256 MB (old now)
Sorry, I know that’s not much.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!
