Re: 3 beeps wont boot
It is probably a ram error,
Unplug the computer and unclip the ram and remove it, clean the ram sticks and the slot that it goes into with a small dry paintbrush. While you have the unit open clean the dust away with a small paintbrush and a hoover at the ready. If you have more than one ram stick, replace one at a time to determine if you have a problem with both or one. If it boots with one, then shut down remove plug from wall socket and then replace the other one too. If it works okay then fine, if it causes problems then you know that the other stick is bad. If it does not boot on replacing first stick, then remove it and put the other stick in and try again.

Do you hear the fans running? Do you hear the hard drive spinning? Did anything ever appear on the monitor?
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.
take a look at the motherboard manufacturers website and see if your motherboard will accept a 4400. You may need to update the bios on your board to accept the faster processor. You need to be careful if you flash the bios. do it wrong and you can write the board off.
did you hear any beeps from the bios? Try to remove all the peripherals like all the PCI cards, specially the "video card", your ram's,. Once you removed and cleaned all of those, put it back,make sure that theres no loose connections and boot the computer.
Bad capacitor(s) on the motherboard can cause this problem, corrupted BIOS maybe... try flashing BIOS.
Probably the CPU if your not getting any error code beeps on startup.. NO Processor for the BIOS instructions thus no Beeps !
