    I have an IBM 300pl which OCCASIONALLY boots up to 16 colors - no
    drivers yet not appartently in safe mode. When it does it gives 1
    long 3 short beeps when it runs the POST.

    I reboot and it comes up OK.

    This computer ran ok for several months after I reformatted and did a
    clean install. A neighbor kid came over and ran some games from an
    on- line site and this seems to be one of the residual effects,
    Adaware and SpyBot got rid of the other crap.

    I am having trouble finding out what the beep code indicates so if
    anyone can help out I would appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Try reseating the video card.
    1 long, 3 short is vga adaptor error.
