Possibly. The machine may be overheating during the startup process. Also, if you are running an old version of windows. 98,95 upgrade and it should fix the problem. One more tip, go into your BIOS, by hitting the F1,F2 or Del or F10 key and then select and enter load failsafe settings. If you cant even get into the BIOS, check that the CPU fans are operational inside the case, if they arent replace them, if they are. Look for a small silver battery called the CMOS batterdy, take it out for about 5 minutes then put it back in and this should fix your problem.

To get rid of this message at boot you must turn off the Chassis Intrusion detector feature. To do this you must restart the computer, as it boots press DEL to enter BIOS. Under the SECURITY tab in BIOS select CHASSIS INTRUSION and select DISABLE. Then select EXIT and SAVE CHANGES and OK to reboot the system.
To clear cmos you'll need to remove the cmos battery from the motherboard for about 5-10 seconds then replace. You need your motherboard disk in order to load the bios. If you do not have this disk then you will need to go to the board manufacturer's website & download the bios. Follow the directions they have at the site to make a bootable disk & then boot from this disk. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
check your display card. it seems to be faulty.
If its onboard then use any PCI display card and try to boot. If its booting up then its confirm your onboard display got damaged.
Other than check settings in BIOS if there is any setting for VGA/VGA etc..
You could try re-seating your ram and your video card if applicable. 2 beeps generally upon post depending on the bios is video or unstable ram. Depending on how many sticks you have on the board try re-seating them if that doesn't work diagnose the faulty stick by putting them in 1 at a time. Hope this helps
You need to make sure that your boot sequence sets to boot from hard drive first. Also, make sure that the hard drive sequence has the hard drive enabled.
If this does not work, then let me know so I can give another suggestion.
The beep pattern is a beep code and is how the motherboard communicates errors during the early booting process otherwise known as the POST (Power On Self-Test). List restart the computer and listen for the pattern of short and long beeps. Soltek does not list the beep codes in their manual, instead they refer to Phoenix who manufacturers the AwardBIOS on your motherboard. There are only two POST beep codes; a single long beep followed by two short beeps (Video error) and anything else. Apparently anything else you hear *probably* refers to RAM problems.
Since you?ve already tested both one of the remaining options is to install a *POST* card (about $30 to $50), boot the PC and read the hexadecimal error code for a more detailed clue to what failed. If you ask around you might find someone who has one and may be willing to loan it to you.
Another option is to write off the motherboard since the cost of the test equipment it about 1/3 the cost of a new board.
