(after beep the system start's vista normally,
i try also to change some settings in bios(smart fan speed enabled-disabled).

Hi All

guess what?
i went yesterday to the lab, they turn on the p.c:no beep
they opend up the case:suprise:no internal speaker!!!
so where the beeps came from?
the tech said that i have a problem with my electric current flow!,
and some times the power supply capacitors make this sound because of that problem,
what shoud i do now???????????

12-06-2007, 01:47 PM

What make and model of PSU do you have?

12-09-2007, 04:15 AM
my psu: Hec 400art

Make sure you have the molex connectors plugged into the card, secondly that almost certainly isn't enough power for that card and the rest of your PC.

its very intresthing because the p.c worked for few weeks with now
so what's happen now?(this p.c in 1 month old)

12-09-2007, 03:58 PM
Personally I would've had at least a good quality 520W+ PSU.

Very likely the strain that that little 400W has been under all that time that it's finally called it quits at trying to keep up with your hardware.

i took my p.c to the lab again, the p.c was there for 36 hrs.
when i came there we conected the p.c to power and no beep at all
the p.c was cold after long night without use it)
on same day i called to the lab(evening) and ask the tech to turn on the p.c:no beep'
next day morning the tech turn on the p.c no beep.
so i came to the lab and took my p.c home, turn it on, guess what: a long beep!!
i now have 600 watts ups but i'ts not fixing the problem .
i'm so frustrated please help !!!!

12-13-2007, 09:25 PM
An idea: Are the same peripheral components being used at the lab as at home? Have you tried a different mouse, keyboard, and monitor?

12-13-2007, 09:36 PM
yes i have try some other devices,
if i did not mention before, the beep caused by the video card !!!
i also replaced the molex conectors&power cable

thanke you

will you try to rma your sparkle 8800gts ?

12-18-2007, 09:33 PM

i guess they will not replace my card because, the beeps did not appear in the
but if sparkle support will say that it's a problem maybe they wil accept this
and they will replace my card,
i understood from sparkle support answer that its not a problem at all.
the card is only leting me know that the remp are cold!
any way i ask them for a solution,

thank you !

8800gt need extra power, did you link the power cable?
or maybe the power slot broken?

12-20-2007, 01:54 PM

You said the beep is all that happens, vista starts up normally and everything runs?

I wouldn't worry about it if thats the case...you called support for the card and they told you why it did it, it doesn't seem like its an issue, just a informative beep :ponder:
