Re: It wont boot up
If it is beeping: a) 1 long beep and 3 short beeps it is the graphics card. It might have been moved when replugging the monitor cord. Just remove the card and put it back in place. Stupid trick, but usually works; b) 3 long beeps it is a RAM problem. Sometimes the same trick of removing and replacing works, but if not, it might be a faulty memory module. Keep in mind (if you are a newbie) to unplug the power cord and to touch the metal casing prior to handling the graphics card or the memory modules! Do not get yourself electrocuted or destroy the components by discharging static electricity on them!

Yes if there are error on the system you should most likely hear a beep most of the time when there is no beep it is due to bad ram. Some times beep codes can't detect bad ram and your computer will not boot.
Open the computer up and see how many ram chips you have if you have more than one take the one in dimm slot 2 out. There should be small writing next to the slots 1,2,3,4 or Dim 1 dim 2 ect ect. you always want to keep slot 1 with ram so start by pulling out the ram out of slot 2 and turn your computer on. If your computer still dosn't post pull the ram out of slot 1 out and insert the ram that was in slot 2 into slot 1 if still no luck it's most likely your board but the best way to test this is to know that you have a good working stick of ram you could purchase one and if it dosnt work bring it back ... theres also the chance of your video card being bad but there is usualy a post code for it (beep code)
if you have no clue on what ram looks or how to open your computer just google for installing ram on a computer and you should find step by step guides
Connect the monitor to some other computer, e.g., a notebook, and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then the monitor is the problem.
If it does not, then your computer is not putting-out any "video" signal, and so the monitor goes to "sleep".
If you have MORE than one VGA-output port on your computer, connect your monitor to the "other" VGA port.
Or, press-and-hold the ON/OFF button on your computer, to force it to completely shutdown.
boot your computer in safe mode and in display properties>Screensaver>Power tab>Advance>
"When i press the power botton on my computer " select "do nothing" and " when i press the sleep botton on my computer " select "do nothing"......
then press ok and apply then restart your computer in normal mode it will work
