You may have a 12V ATX line (6 wires) that needs to be connected to the mobo in addition to the main power (about 20 wires). Make sure they are both connected - try again.
Remove 1 stick of memory - try again.
Swap the stick you removed with the other stick and try again.
Unplug the power switch wires from the header on the mobo - try again - make sure you write down where each wire goes. Try again.
Swap the power supply with another ATX to see if it is the power supply (PS fail more than mobos due to dust buildup).

You should only enter the BIOS immediately after booting the computer and never from within an operating system (i.e. Windows). On some computers you can enter the BIOS from a DOS prompt.
Several ways can be used to enter the BIOS/CMOS:
The video monitor will usually say on the bottom of the screen just as the computer is turned on, which key to use.
The BIOS information is stored in the CMOS hardware section of the motherboard and the contents are maintained by applying constant electrical current using a CMOS battery.
to enter the BIOS during boot up hold down one of the following keys:
  • Hold down the <Del> key
  • Hold down the <F1> key
  • Hold down the <F10> key
To enter the BIOS from a DOS prompt...( ...NOT from inside windows)
  • <Alt><Cntrl><Esc>
  • <Alt><Cntrl><Enter>
  • <Cntrl> <Alt> <A>
  • <Cntrl> <Alt> <S>
Compaq Presario - Press <Alt> <Ctrl> <Esc> at boot when you see the "Compaq" log in big letters

depending on the beeps, you are looking at usually memory or video card error. first step is to remove the memory from the system and place only one stick in at a time. if the unit only has one stick then you need to get a known workign stick to test with. if the known working stick works or only one of the other sticks work then check each of the slots indvidually. if you find that the unit does not boot with the memory in a specific slot, then you have a bad motherboard. if the unit boots in every slot with the good memory, then you have a bad stick. If the pc boots after pulling and reseating the memory, you got one of the rare issues of a memory stick lossening up. If nothing boots it, then you need to move on to either the video card or motherboard.

Without the exact beeps and length of each beep i could not give you more than a generalized answer.

Is it shuting down? Or just instantly going off.

If it is shutting down, adjust the power settings.
  • Control Panel
  • Power Options
  • Make sure the scheme you want is selected. For a desktop it should be Home/Office or Always on.
  • Make sure that System Standby and Hibernate (if available) are set to the length you want.

Reinstall the operating system it sounds like you have a corrupt boot file , Have you added any new hard ware or software just before this happened if so then that could be what caused your problem

The motherboard of the pc has a corrupted BIOS chip - this isn't fixable, you would need to replace the motherboard who died of old age.
Since this is an extremely old pc there are no replacement or compatible boards left on sale. Sorry, time for a new pc.

That is because the settings on the power are set for the monitor to go to sleep if not in use.. It is a very quick and easy fix.. Just right click anywhere on the desktop that doesn't have any icons, the display properties box will appear, then click on screen saver under monitor power click on power, there you could set the monitor never to turn off... Let me know if this solved the problem and good luck..
