DeskPro Beeps

[ Edited ]

When I boot my DeskPro, I get 1 long, then 3 short beeps and no video. I've already moved the RAM chips around and changed out the video card. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks,

Tom

Re: DeskPro Beeps

The manual says that the System ROM is bad and that you need to do a BIOS reflash using the recovery procedure.

If I remember correctly you need to put the BIOS update on a floppy and put the floppy in the PC then hold down ESC while turning power on. Continue to hold until it begins to read the floppy.

There are a lot of Deskpro's so I can't tell you where to get the BIOS. You will have to get it yourself from:
