Went out with Angie to buy her a new video card since I thought the one in her computer was bad. I put the new one in and it wouldn't boot. So I unplug the daughter board from the old one and put it back in and it works fine. The screen didn't flicker or anything. I started defragging the hard drive and walked away. About a half an hour later it starts beeping.

It had to be one of the alarms I set in the BIOS, but I didn't know which one (CPU temp, Fan speed, Voltage, etc). So I had to turn them all off one by one until it stopped beeping. Looks like she has a bad power supply, it's not supplying the correct voltage. I hope that didn't screw up anything else in her computer.

could well be dude, also is the machine plugged into a 4 way adaptor or any crazy shit like that, even try moving the computer to say your apt and see if it beeps, i've found that certain places have a shitty power supply to them especially places like apartments.
