You may need to try a few steps here,

1. Switch of you pc and open up you pc cover.

2. Pull out the memory (RAM) from the slot by pressing down the clipsfrom each edge, be gentle will you push down the clips from each side.Remember how it was seated when u pull out.

3. After that, put re-seat back the RAM back to the slot by pressing each edges in, firmly but not with excessive power.

4.Try to switch on the pc after you re-seated the RAM. If no success, youhv to repeat the procedure again, but this time clean the RAM's contactwith a cloth and contact cleaner, then re-seat it back and try again.

*here's the instruction with diagram to show you how to do it.

and video as well

5.If still no sign of success, you might have to unplug other cards, suchas your video card, and re-seat them back, then try again.

6. Worst case scenario, disassemble your motherboard and test it without fixing in the chasis by fising only your power supply, RAM, Video Card, Keyboard, and see if it works.

Good luck mate, comment here to let me know the progress or any success.

Do remember to rate my solution.. thanks (^_^)

3 beeps on boot no screen and boot stops

sounds like the motherboard trying to give you an error code. search beep codes for the type of motherboard you have and then you will get a possible cause of the interruption.

my friend once gave me an old ibm that had a beeping sound preventing it from booting. i googled ibm beep codes and learned that it was a video card error. i swapped the video card and problem solved

When I hit power button on computer, power light doesn't come on...and the fan kicks on, but nothing else happens. nothing shows up on monitor except the test screen with 3 colors...the computer doesn't...

THis sounds like a power supply issue.. I had a similar issue with mine. my fan would kick on for about 2 seconds then shut off.
Hope that helps

Hello, find the BIOS Beep Codes at and try to find your problem. It is not a software or Monitor problem. It could be RAM or Video Card failure
