Re: computer turns off then on after first boot
2 beeps is memory issues. Either your RAM is bad or the Video card is bad. If you are getting the BSOD, blue screen of death, then I would take out all your RAM and start it up with a single stick, so you can find out what stick is bad. If you only have 1 stick, replace it. I say to do the memory first, because it is the cheaper fix.

Dear, Did this situation come with any beep sound. Because, most of the time, in this situation; the computer beeps. Here are some codes. Check if any of these condition apply to your system.
No Beeps Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals One Beep Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine Two Beeps POST/CMOS Error One Long Beep, One Short Beep Motherboard Problem One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps Video Problem One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps Video Problem Three Long Beeps Keyboard Error Repeated Long Beeps Memory Error Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps CPU Overheating
Re-seat the memory.. more than likely they have unseated themselves during the dust cleaning. Beeping is usually caused by memory.. Beeps are usually a series like Morris code long..short beeps.. if re-seating the memory doesn't work, try swapping and removing different sticks and differnet locations on the motherboard, most motherboards have 2-4 memory banks or known as dimm slots.
Computer has three short beeps as it starts? computer RAM (memory) related issue.
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
That is probably your ram. If you have more then 1 stick remove them and install one at a time in slot 1. If that isn't it you need to count the beep and duration of the beeps. I can then look up the codes. I will also need to know your bios manufacture.
I think there is a problem with the pin connection of the RAM. Remove the RAM again, then clean the pin with the contact cleaner spray then plug in again. do same thing with the CPU/processor if necessary. if you got One short beep when boot windows the problem haven't from hardware but on your system. try to run scandisk, disk cleanup, or press F8 while booting to go into "safe mode". Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.
The beeps you hear are probably BIOS error beep codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the BIOS communicates what type of error is occurring during the initial stages of the start up process. If you can tell me the manufacturer and model number of the board AND the sequence and length of the beeps I can point you in the direction to go.
