I think that's RAM. 3 beeps is usually RAM. Pull a sodimm and see what happens. P30 usually had two sodimms. Try it with one, then the other, then none. Let us know if the beep codes change.

Yeah, I think you might have knocked something a bit. Reseat those sodimms, and check all other connections if you can.

Yes no more Bip problem One is solved now.
But a new problem apeared.

I start computer, I see the starting Toshiba Logo with the command (f2setup and f12 boot) for less than 1-2 sec. After computer shut-down...
I tried to go in setup or boot none work (f2 and f12)

It's realy strange never had a problem like that before.

I have only one 512mb sodimm I tried it on both slot .. same result each time.
