If you have problem with the video card you will have beep code depending of the MB model.

I check, this MB is with AMI bios and 8 beeps are error code for the video card.

To detect a problem disconnect everything from MB (HDD, CD, audio if you have and etc.).

When you start it you will have non stop beeping - memory error. Now put the memory and your computer will start and give you error for missing operating system. But if in this moment you have beep code again - you have problem with the MB or CPU (depending of the code).

Find CMOS cleaner jumper to reset the BIOS settings. If this not help you, you must go for a service.


P.S. Don't touch anything inside box without disconnecting power cable! :)
