Yesterday I was trying to put in an extra (old)7GB IDE HD into my sisters computer, which has a SCSI drive as master. It didn't work... So I just took it out again.
But now for some reason her computer gives to very short beeps at "Verifying DMI pool data...". When it's finished loading everything and you try opening something it just freezes. (Running on XP Pro Sp1 btw)
what bios do you have installed?
2 beeps in an AMI bios usually means Memory Parity Error in first 64KB block (check memory).
2 in AWARD bios cn mean reseat RAM, check other components.
in WINBIOS its the memory again.
in other words, try replacing the RAM. tiz wot the beep codes seem to be telling u...
