I have a Gateway DX4870 that gives me 3 beeps, then Pause, then 3 beeps. What is this beep code?
Probably bad memory.
Then both the sticks are bad as I get errors with either stick in the system
Put a known good RAM stick and a known good video card in this machine and it still will not boot. This dosen't look good
Take out the memory dimms and blow out the slots, clean the contacts on the dimms,a can of contact cleansr is good and lightly with a pencil eraser will do.Possibly replace the CMOS battery, their cheap.
put a new battery in and have the same issue....this is not looking good
