Unhappy Ati Mach64 Sdram Bios 3.089

I need help! As far is I know I have done nothing to the computer. etower 333cs. When I start it up it gives me a black screen that says ATI MACH64 SDRAM BIOS 3.089 (It also makes a different sound when I start it up). Any help would be great!

Sounds like some peice of hardware is gone on it.
The new sound beep its making is an alert to help determine which peice of hardware is gone. Find out that make/model your BIOS is and google the number of beeps.
Else, just pull out all your cards apart from the video card and try booting it up then that will let you know that one of the cards you pulled out is faulty.
If it still continues with the error, it maybe your Motherboard, Ram or CPU... or PSU etc..

Thanks for responding!
I was thinking something along hardware gone bad. I should probably clarify the sounds it makes. It is not a beep but rather the sounds you might imagine a sick computer makes when it starts up (groaning and arguing) Also the video and sound are on board the computer.
