    Part of the question got cut off I think. Does the system boot, or does it beep a couple of times and never starts? what is the model of your HP desktop? How many beeps are there? Can you see anything on your monitor? If yes, what do you see?

Motherboard beeps once randomly while pc is running, idk what could possibly be wrong though... Can anybody help me?

Possibly some type of temperature alarm either from your motherboard or perhaps your video card.

Turns on with no display and beeps

The motherboard is unable to talk to the computer's video card , RAM, or CPU. you'll need to open the case up to troubleshoot and re-seat the components/figure out what's wrong. (or of course bring it to a computer repair shop if you don't know what you're doing inside the machine).

Just replaced CPU and power supply on Gatewat GT5432. Turned it on and fans all start, but machine just beep-beep-beep-beeps. What have I done wrong?

Depends on the number of beeps and sequence. They are a code, but must be identified by the the BIOS manufacturer and version.

We just got an HP Pavilion A1540N from my cousin, we are trying to boot it up and it beeps and the monitor turns on but goes right to sleep.

Will need the beep sequence the amount of beeps. The beeps lets ya know that there was something wrong in POST. Most likely cause would be the video card but need the beep sequence to be certain.

HP Pavilion 763n PC Desktop Beep Continuous Long Beeps

how many long beeps? There are specific beep codes that will tell you what is wrong.
Alternatively, it could be something lodged in the keyboard. Turn the keyboard upside down, and shake all the crumbs out of it. Also, check to see that the keyboard is plugged in all the way. If the problem persists, the number of long and short beeps are necessary to troubleshoot this problem.
