Question about Intel Computers & Internet
I cannot turn on my Desktop (it has not been used for a couple of years). Once i connect it, the fans start working, and its beggins to work, but then a beep alarm sounds, and the pc turns off. And the sb pwr light keeps on... Anyone knows what this might be? I've tried to clean it all inside the best I can, I've unplugged and plugged back all the cables, and I've changed the location of the RAM card (as I read that one beep could be relate to that). But so far nothing... Thanks in advance
Check that keyboard is plugged into correct port.
Can you Enter CMOS setup ? Try replacing battery on main board.

1. motherboards for atx form factor pc's are powered even when the computer is off, particularly if you leave the computer plugged in to wall outlet... you better do not work on you computer while power cable is still connected to both, your pc and the wall outlet..
2. I found this thread that may be helpful, it may be the motherboard may have gone bad, cmos is corrupted or something may not be seated properly...it could also be one of these: Bad CPU, BAD ram, Bad power supply.. read the thread for details:

something is shorted or PSU has failed
make sure cards are seated down (with power cord out)
try if works ;) your good
if not next step is cord out an remove power and cable off the CDROM drive
try it, just go through all hardware till it starts
to determin what failed, if still same no boot then PSU has died

Unplug the tower
Remove the ram and turn the tower on wait till it give you fast beeps. (telling you no RAM)
once that happens shut the system down by unplugging it again
Re-install your RAM and try to boot again

You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.
