Re: beeping tower

Hi Mrspink.

One long beep is usually a ram issue, If you are confortable opening the case, you see the ram sticks. They are retained with a white clip on both ends of the stick. Press these down, to release the ram, then firmly press the stick straight down, till the retaining tabs click back into place and lock. If the ram was removed, make sure a stick is in slot #1. The slots should be numbered, on the ends. Good Luck!!

When I turn the computer on it goes into digital power save and windows does not load

The monitor is going into power-save mode because it's not receiving a video signal from your computer. Are you turning on the computer at the monitor or on the tower? If you're turning the tower on are you hearing any noise (i.e. fans running, beeps, drives spinning, etc.)? Does the power light on the tower come on and stay on? If not you may have a bad power supply or other hardware issue.

I turn computer on blue light on computer tower comes on monitor power **** turns blue and the on screen message going into power save mode and then nothing change motherboard battery and took out graphic...

Short of it being something simple like your monitor cable is unplugged, the more likely problem is that there's a fault on your motherboard or graphics card.
You should have an internal speaker connected to your motherboard, it should be giving beeps depending on what the problem is. If everything is ok then there should be a single beep.
If you are not hearing anything try removing your RAM and boot up, you should get lots of loud beeps, if you hear nothing then it's likely your motherboard is faulty.

Computer beeping on startup

One long, two short is the POST beep code that indicates something is wrong with your display adapter (e.g. your video card).

Make sure your video card is plugged into your computer firmly. If it is an onboard card, you may need to get an external video card and plug that in to test if that is your problem.

My computer crashed and now the monitor goes into power save mode

You said that you hear a series of beeps, if you hear this kind of sounds maybe there is a loose connection from the CPU. Try to remove the Memory and put it back again.
