    Computer powers up then just sits there, does nothing at all no sef test, I pulled the memory, which has been in there for a while. Put in each chip by itself, turned on and nothing. Yes I thought it was a memory problem, but now I'm not sure.

    You can get that when you have an bad or incorrect memory chip (or not enough chips) on the motherboard. Was it recently updated? Did you recently have a power outage or brownout or surge? Was there any indication of a problem before it quit?

Start up Beep Beeps ton wy is that? whenn i start

if it is a continuos repeated beep beep sound your hdd cable is loose and if it comes at boot time only it is the sound for ram testing which says ram isok
if a continuos long sound comes and pc doesnot start it is the case of ram fault try cleaning contacts of ram and ram slot with alcohol methyl or spirit or Absolute vodka works best.

Beep comes first and then no beep at signal to monitor

un plug the RAM
then on the system without ram. if you hear the continuos beeps,off the system and fit the same ram properly.
if again you have the same problem,then Replace the New Ram.

The screen doesnt come up

The beeps[s] usually signify either improperly seated/bad RAM, or improperly seated or bad graphics card. Try reseating these and reboot, if it still beeps then try removing the video card & reboot. If it does boot that way then you know it is a bad video card rather than bad ram. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Cusl2-c motherboard problem, no clue what it is

can you give me the beeps explanation. All computers have a standard "beep code" this is a standard code to determine the problems in boot up. Long beeps, short beeps, intermittent beeps all mean something. Can you give me your best definition of the beep codes ? long, short, quick successive beeps etc also can you give the nake and model of the computer.

Boot beeps

re check all inserted pci cards and all memory, reseat if necassary. Have you recently upgraded anything, if so remove. Continuos beeps can also indicate processor power failure.
