    Hi,
    i recently tried to install a Artec 52x32x52 CD-RW on a pc.
    I set it up as the master and removed the old cd-rom. Im almost positive all the conections are correct.
    When i turned the computer on the pc made a series of beeps and the light on the monitor and keyboard just flashes. The computer remains in this state and does nothing else.

    I put the old cd-rom back the way it was to begin with. But this same me the same result as above.

    Then i freaked and decided to disconnect all the cd drives and have none at all but this gave me that same result again. This should not be!!

    Have i somehow totally wrecked the pc. And hopefully if i havent how can i get it working again.

    pc specs

    Win 2k Pro
    I dont know the other specs cause the owner is a muppet and dosent know his computer.

    ya no problem


    I noticed that everytime the computer started i got 1 short and 2 long beeps. i looked this up on the net and for a compaq this beep code stands for a ram error. so i took out the ram and put it back in and bingo pc working again

    full list of beep codes
