Desktop fails to show any response during startup attempts

My computer (home assembled) worked flawlessly for three months. Now, if I leave it alone long enough, it goes to sleep (not supposed to, I set it to always be on (due to this problem)) When it does, I cannot get it to be shaken out of this sleep. the screen is black - no responses.

This happens if i shut it down normally, or when (previously) the timer would set it to hibernate, shut down or sleep. the only thing that seems to get it out of this coma is leaving it unplugged completely for several hours. This method of recovering normal function has been becoming less and less reliable as time goes on.
upon starting the computer from an unplugged or shut-down state, I know amost immediately that it will not turn on because of a long, jittery beep, rather than the ''healthy'' single, quick beep that denotes success

specs:

AMD Phenom X4 3.0ghz processor
320gb WD caviar HD
ATI 4670 1GB GFX
Wireless LAN
GIGABYTE Mobo
4gb Corsair RAM

It is probably over-heating.

Screen went blank, have yellow indicator on monitor, try to reboot, getting three beeps, nothing more.


One beep during startup is "good", but THREE is not good.

Three beeps means a hardware fault -- probably that the video-adapter on your computer has failed.

Connect the monitor to another desktop/laptop, to confirm that it still works.

Turn the computer off, and disconnect the power-cord.
Remove all the RAM, and then re-insert just one stick.
Reconnect the power, and try to boot.
If you still get THREE beeps, turn it off.
Disconnect the power-cord, and reinsert the remaining RAM sticks.

If you still have the problem, then it's time to replace the video-card on your computer. Take the computer to a computer-store, so that they can sell you a video-card that will be compatible with your motherboard.
Hopefully, if you buy the video-card from them, they will install it for a modest fee -- ask them.

After 8 days of no life at all in the laptop , having 2 computer technicians around saying it was probably the motherboard and just about to send to Sony I pressed the power button and hey presto it worked again..Guess it was just sleeping or hibernating...after all it is spring now....Actually one guy of the many forums I have visited advised just to leave the Laptop alone and perhaps it would mend itself..and hey presto he was right, although having said that I have yet to turn the laptop off and startup again..HMMMMMMM...

Won't boot, display stuck at Intel desktop board, can't go to BIOS


I had this exact same problem, turns out i just needed to unplug a couple USB devices that were conflicting with the startup. It worked inexplicably well. If you have an external HD i'd start by unplugging that, then other accessories.
