Vista Won't Boot Past Splash Screen & Beeps too

Toshiba Satellite L355-S7812
2GB Ram

Last thing I did last night was check my Yahoo email, but did not open any emails with attachmants or viruses.

When I turned it on this morning I got the Toshiba splash screen, then a black screen with a curser in the top left corner followed by loud beeping.

I reset my Ram, but it did not help.
I could not enter safe mode, or setup.

Please help.

Hi Dave,
what do you mean by reset your RAM?

How many beeps Dave?

As you stated this usually indicates a RAM problem.

You could also try removing the battery to reset the BIOS.
