or beep- beep beep beep- beep beep
A lesson in what not to do when wearing the wrong glasses. I grabbed a 512 MB DDR chip from my GX260 and put it alongside a 256 chip in my GX270. Seemed reasonable at the time, considering... The last time I had a pc beep this much was at work where the unit in question was from storage and things had loosened up on the motherboard from rough treatment. At least the beeping pattern
alerts you that not only is something awry, but because it is a pattern it is telling what is wrong*.
End result is that everything is back as it was and running normally now. It's running a little better even, as I went in and changed some System settings instead. Next time I'll do some research on what I'm installing, and read what is actually printed
on what I am installing, and not make stupid assumptions.
*Someone told me years ago that it was possible to get a diagnostic code from clicking your ignition on and off in your car a certain number of times and writing down the alternator light flash pattern. This peaked my interest enough to borrow a repair manual and try this on my 1988 Plymouth. Very cool. At least the pc doesn't need you to prompt it for the diagnostic.
