Wont turn on, bios beep code

Hi, i have a sony desktop. lately the computer has gotten worse and worse. at one point some blue screen showed up[ and it turned of by itself. then this started happening more constantly until the point where it did not let go as far as logging into my acount. now the computer doesn't turn on at all and the screen doesn't even turn a little lighter when i turn on the computer. i tried to reinstall windows xp, but the computer does not react to the disk. the screen remains black and the computer's fans run much louder than usual. on top of that we have a bios beep code going at every 3 seconds a 4 second long beep occurs. the beeps go on endlessly. we tried to switch the the cord for the computer, but nothing happened. what should i do, replace, or fix?

    When rebooted computer beeps 3 times and will not turn on


    Is it a long beep or a short beep? Beep codes are used by the BIOS during the POST to report certain initial system errors.

    If you're hearing beep codes after you turn your computer on, it typically means that the system has encountered some kind of problem before it was able to display any kind of error information on the monitor.

    Follow the steps below to determine what system problem the beep code is representing.
    Difficulty: AverageTime Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours depending on the cause of the beep code

    Here's How:

    1. Power on the computer or restart it if it's already on.

    2. Listen very carefully to the beep codes that sound when the computer begins to boot.

      Restart your computer if you need to hear the beeping again. You're not likely to make whatever problem you have worse by restarting a few times.

    3. Write down, in whatever way makes sense to you, how the beeps sound.

      Important: Pay close attention to the number of beeps, if the beeps are long or short and if the beeping repeats or not. There is a big difference between a "beep-beep-beep" beep code and a "beep-beep" beep code.

      This is all important information that will help determine what issue the beep codes are representing.

    4. What steps you take to solve a particular beep code will differ depending on the BIOS manufacturer.

      Choose the correct beep code troubleshooting guide below based on your motherboard'sBIOS manufacturer:

      Tip: Not sure what brand of BIOS is on your motherboard? See this How To Determine Your Motherboard BIOS Manufacturer guide for some helpful advice.

    My Dell PowerEdge 600SC server seems to run OK but lately has a beep that is constant....no code just beep....beep....beep...I though it was the UPS system at first


    It doesn't match any Dell codes, I even checked on the site. I'd go into device manager & see if there's anything with an exclamation point & fix that first. Check under "my computer" (right click,properties) & see if it's reporting the proper amount of RAM. Then you can check in bios to see how much is showing there & what slot(s) they're in. Hopefully, you will quickly find the issue. A bad RAM stick is the "beep" code that you're hearing on most dektops in general. So if you see in the bios that a RAM stick is not showing or is incorrect in size, remove the suspected stick & re-boot to see if that takes care of the "beep". Then just go buy another stick & be sure to get eec if it requires it. Regular memory doesn't work in most servers.

    Dell 5150 Start-Up Problem.. beeps


    Beeping on startup is a memory error. The blue screen you got was most likely caused by a memory error as well. First, take out then re-install your memory. If the error persists and you have more than one stick, test each one singly to find out which stick is bad.

    My sony vaio makes a beeping sound one long and to short beeps and it wont turn on


    One long beep and two short beeps usually means a video problem. If you have an add-on video card, try replacing it with a new one. If you are using an on-board video, go into the bios and turn it off. then shut down & install an add-on card.
