Hi,

I recently bought a new Graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS to be installed on my old Pentium 4 3.0 ghz so I can play the latest games but having trouble with the installation as my PC won't start up. 2 beeps sounds when I power up followed by a black screen.

Appreciate if anyone can assist.

Thanks!

Two long beeps or short beeps?

I think it's two long beeps but not too sure, I'd need to get to my PC and turn it on to check.

Appreciate your time.

It could be RAM issue or Power issue...
Try booting with only 1 stick of RAM or use different slot.
