Hi,

when starting my pc i get some strange beeps 1 long - 3 short ;the computer still boots normally tho
I have a k7pro mobo with an ami bios, however when i search for beepcodes i find this:
ami 4 beeps : timer not operational
award 1 long 3 short : bad video adapter or vid mem

I have plugged in an old voodoo banshee to be able to play an old game which wouldn't work with a geforce 2 mx.

Something wrong?

Here are my full pc specs :

BIOS Date: 05/25/00
BIOS Type: American Megatrends
BIOS ID: 62-1509-001169-00101111-071595-IRONGATE-1AAFL049
OEM Sign-On: A6195KMS V1.5
Chipset: AMD 751 rev 37
Superio: Unknown
OS: WinXP SP2
CPU: AMD Athlon(TM) Processor 750 Mhz MAX: 750 Mhz
BIOS ROM In Socket: No
BIOS ROM Size: 256K
Memory Installed: 256 MB
Memory Maximum: 512 MB
Memory Slot 01: 128 MB
Memory Slot 02: 128 MB

i must say however that the bios rom is in a socket and i actually have 384 MB (another 128 MB in slot 03)

Can someone tell me what may be wrong?

thx
