EVO n160 beep codes

[ Edited ]

Hi,

Could someone please tell me where to find description of beep codes for EVO n160.
I executed windows XP installer, installation halted and after shut down and start, notebook stoped working. Display is not working. On start I got one long beep. After that notebook repeats long beep and two short beeps. BIOS is accessing floppy drive and if I insert boot floppy it seems like it load just first sector and then beeping stops and computer halts. Notebook had Phoenix BIOS, but I do not know exactly what version. I tried to remove CMOS backup baterry but it does not help.

Hi there.
Here a way to the manuals :

You should find the necessary info in there.

Re: EVO n160 beep codes

Hi,

Thanks for reply, I will be posting to notebook forum.

I already read those manuals but there is nothing about beep codes. There is just general info.
I found beep code description on phoenix site for Phoenix bios 4.0 revision 6, but i don't know if I can apply those codes to EVO 160 notebook. One long beep and two short beeps means "Search option ROMS, beep on checksum failure".
