Question about Computers & Internet
This can be a problem with the RAM or the memory of the computer, so first thing to do here is to shut down the computer and open the CPU and unplug/replug the RAM on the slot and then turn the power on and if still the same problem, you may need to remove the processor and RAM and then clean them....

As I understand it, your computer doesn't turn on anymore.
Are the beeps, as in your initial message, still sounding? If so, how many beeps does it make together and what pattern (such as 2 short beeps and one long beep, for example), and does it repeat after 10 seconds? Kindly let me know the beep pattern.
I also read your reply to another expert where you said "NOW IT WILL NOT STAY ON!". What was their advice which now made your system turn off?
Please let me know the above so I can help.

Maybe some part failed or lost contact with the motherboard.
Try first unplugging the power cable for ten minutes.
If it restarts beeping it can be the RAM, the Video card, the CPU, fried BIOS, several other things, or a broken switch in the cabinet.
It can also beep because the computer is restarting by itself continuously, in that case you will hear the start beep.
If it is the motherboard, tell me the model and how many times beeps.
If it is system restarting continuously, use recovery disk or Windows setup disk and try to see if you can reinstall the system. If the computer does not complete the initial POST test, try going to CMOS settings, and reset BIOS to default settings. If it does not open BIOS, remove CMOS coin battery from motherboard and put it back, to reset BIOS. Do this with power unplugged.
If that does not work, try starting the Motherboard with a minimal set of parts, only RAM, CPU, Heathsink, PSU. No disks.
Remember that there is always risk of damage working on the motherboard. Always keep power unplugged and try not to touch circuits and contacts.
If it still does not start , then the motherboard is fried.

I think one of your RAM's have got corrupted or the power supply, i.e. the SMPS is not able to supply all the correct voltages. Try replacing the SMPS with a working one of the same capacity and check the RAM sticks too. If its burnt then it can be detected by the naked eye. So replace that RAM and try starting up with the working SMPS. If it functions properly, then replace the SMPS with the original one and try start-up. If the PC starts beeping again, immediately switch it off and replace the SMPS with a new one. However if all the above fail, then you got to check the processor too................................sodeep
