Three things to look at. . .
1) CPU Heat Sink is full of 'House hold Dust - Clean it off !
2) If youre one to leave ur PC running 24/7 - 365 days a year -
The slightest bang, drop, jolt (See in you Theasaurus Bud) will shear the contact between the Proccessoe surface and the Heat Sink - Giving you zero Heat transfer - New Heat sink Grease !
3) Bung your Ram Module into the trash or the nieghbours roof, replace it ( it's the cost of a tube of toothpaste nowdays ) and if it still does work after allll that - Get your .357 Mag. out - Great target - seriously !!

This issue might happen due to RAM.

To resolve this issue:
Turn of the power supply for your desktop.
Please remove the side case on your tower(CPU).
find the RAM slot and remove the RAM from the Slot.
Clean the RAM terminals with the help of cloth or Eraser.
After cleaning place the RAM on RAM slot.
Now try to turn ON the PC desktop. If it is working thats fine or else you need to replace another RAM to check.

Please refer the below figure to find the RAM Slot and the lock to remove the RAM.

Lights 3 &4 stay on.


Computer beeping at you is usually a problem with the video card or memory. Try re-seating both and see if you still have the same problem. If you do, individually remove each component and power on to test if the beeps persist.

Your Monitor is not connected properly
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx

Connecting Your Monitor
1. Turn off your computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Connect the white connector end of the DVI cable attached on the monitor to the connectors on the computer.
3. Connect the USB cable that was included with your monitor to the computer and the upstream USB connector on the monitor. Once this cable is connected to the computer and the monitor, you can use the USB downstream on the monitor.
4. Connect any USB devices.
5. Connect the power cord.
6. Turn on your monitor and computer. If you do not see an image, see Troubleshooting Your Monitor.

NOTE: The Monitor will display full screen in White, Black, Red, Green and Blue color rolling pattern on screen if the DVI cable is not connected. This self test pattern will be displayed continually when Monitor detects that DVI cable from Monitor to PC is not connected.


* Check connection integrity at both ends of the video cable.
* Ensure the monitor and computer are plugged in to a working electrical outlet.
* Ensure power button is depressed fully.
