Ever since I tried to replace an ISDN-adapter on a HP Kayak XU 6/300, it gives a beeping pattern on power-up wich goes like this:
There aren't any messages on the screen.
I tried to replace my AGP-video card with another, but that didn't do the trick.

You can also contact HP to ask what the code means. They usually tell you immediately.

Beep code 4-4-2-4 = Crisis Recovery Failure (only if switch 10 is down). Check URL
You are, at the moment, in a very critical situation. If the Bios crisis recovery fails when trying to recover the bios, then that's it. You need a new Mainboard
If however you didn't touch dip switch No.10. I find it hard to believe that this is possible when you take a ISDN Card out, unless you tried a clear CMos when taking out the ISDN card and also switched (clear CMos = switch No. 6)
Then you should try doing a Bios Crisis recovery, but you'll need the latest Bios on a bootable floppy to be able to do this.
Check your Technical Reference Manual for instructions.
