Re: computer just beeps when you turn it on

This sounds like an internal component (ie HDD, Memory) is not plugged in correctly or has become disconnected in some way or a perheral is not plugged in correctly. You'll need to check all peripheral connections are correct first, if so then open up the case and examine internal components more closely.

Re: computer just beeps when you turn it on

The beep is part of the POST (Power On Self Test). Does it just beep once or is it a combination of beeps. If there's more than one beep you need to let us know what the sequence is.

Beeps always indicate error excluding a one single beep only which indicate process.Every manufacturer has its own beep setting. it comprises on short and long beeps.

AND if even after replacing keyboard and mouse it gave beeps then shut down your system. Open casing remove processor and memory chip out and connect them again it will work now INSHALLAH.

Here's the compaq beep codes

As you can see your codes are not listed so I would presume you have the Award BIOS and your problem comes under "Other beep conditions" = memory errors.

Doesnt switch on

You said buzzing sound is this more like a beep? Beeping sound are indicative of any number of diagnosable issues, depending on the actual number of beeps and the type of motherboard.
