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!!

The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram, all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk, and remains 1 short beep : Normal POST - system is ok
2 short beeps : POST Error - error code shown on screen

No beep : Power supply or system board problem
Continuous beep: Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem

PC will not reboot.

Either something has wiped out your operating system and you need to reformat the hard drive and reinstall it, or your hard drive went Since it worked fine the day before and just did this right away, my guess it that your hard drive went bad. But you can try both options though. Hope this helps.

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.
