Windows 7: Asus G50Vt-X5 wont boot win 7 beeps rapidly

Asus G50Vt-X5 wont boot win 7 beeps rapidly

So my computer was running fine until i turned it off. then later when i turned it back on it went through the computers boot logo(not part of any os, will do this even without a hard drive installed) then it loaded what looked like command prompt in full screen with the blinking white "_" cursor then the cursor moved down as if someone hit enter and it starts beeping rapidly non stop. The beeps are all the same ( ive heard of beep codes and ive heard them and this isnt it) it beeps forever until i turn it off. Also on a different hard drive in the same computer i have vista installed and that works perfectly. But back to the windows 7, i tried it with one ram (one of each) and without any both rams are fine because i did the same with the rams while trying to boot into vista and vista booted every time. There fore this leads me to believe that the hard drive is causing this problem so maybe something is wrong with the windows 7 hard drive/partition. All help is appreciated.

Thanks.

It does sound like a hard drive or other hardware problem.

During the Power On Self Test (POST), does it give you any warnings?

Can you take the hard drive to another machine and test it with one of these programs? Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

Not sure what this means and Ive read it 3x! Please try to explain this again.... HELP US HELP YOU!

A rapid constant beeping from the Award BIOS ususally indicates a memory issue.


Some questions for you...
  1. Have you been inside this laptop adding or removing any components? If so, make sure any RAM is properly seated, HDD's, etc.
  2. Were you "playing" with settings in the BIOS at any time? If so, go into BIOS and set to defaults.
  3. Any spills on or near this laptop.
  4. Has it been dropped?

Yes it is a rapid constant beeping but i dont think its ram because i can run vista on the same computer just off of a different hard drive and it works perfect. so i think its a hard drive issue.

Answer to questions:
1. I only interchanged the rams to see if there the problem but as i said it probably isnt the ram since vista works flawlessly.
2. Reset bios. No change.
3. No Spills.
4. Not dropped.

Hopefully this will help get to the bottom of the problem. Thanks for help.

Cannot find RAM for my Asus G50VT-X1
Hi im trying to max out my Asus G50VT-X1 and I read the most RAM it can handle is 8gb of SO-DIMM DDR2 200-pin memory (total) at 800mhz. I cannot find any 4gb modules to fit those specs however. 2 areas of debate may be what the max ram is, 4 or 8 gb and if the chipset can handle 667mhz or 800mhz...
