Re: Vista running on AOpen Ez65
I am taking it that you currently have XP installed? You need to boot the computer from the Vista CD. Please note that this will erase your hard drive. So back up any important stuff before you attempt this.

From your description I would hazard a guess based on 32 years of experience that you have a power supply problem. It will need to be replaced. You may want to invest $35 in a UPS (uninterrupted Power Supply) system

The beeps are an error code. Most times they are signifying a RAM or video card problem. With your explanation I would check the video card first. The card might have overheated or just plain crapped out on you. Try replacing and rebooting. Hopefully this will have fixed your problem. Sorry. Hope this points you in the right direction & Good luck.
Bios batteries don't usually have a specific place on boards. I have seen the same boards with the batteries in different locations. The best thing to look for is a nickel size silver circle. This is the battery. It can either be standing up on end or laying flat on the board. You can tell further its the battery because it looks like a large watch battery.
From the images I can find online it may be next to the IDE ports and the power port near the front of the board. Back of the board being where all the hookups are for audio and video.
There is probably an issue with the RAM. Take the RAM out and put it back in see if that fixes it. If not then take it out and if you have 2 sticks of RAM put only one in at a time to see if the computer will boot on either stick. If that still does not work then most likely either all of your RAM is bad or there is a problem with the motherboard.
