I am having trouble with my daughters laptop, it beeps shortly after you press the power button about 8-10 times, then stops for about 10 seconds, then beeps about 25-30 times, then stops and boots up normal to the desktop.
This doesn`t happen everytime I boot it, I would say 5 out of 10 times, its irritatiing
The other irritating thing is does is when you open IE, it looks like someone else is typing a bunch of ............................ across the screen preventing me from typing anything, if I open Notepad, same thing...it weird!
What I have done..so far
Ran CPU heat and stress tests ...OK
Video Card heat and stress test....OK
Taken memory out one by one (there is 2X3 gigs) OK
Memory test...........so far OK, in progress as I type
Blew all the dust out of the case
Reformated C drive and updated to service pack 1
The specs on the laptop...
CPU intel i7 Q720 @ 160GHZ
6.00 GB RAM
1 GB Video card
1 TB hard drive partitioned into 2 500GB
Win 7 Home Edition 64 bit
Thanks in advance
