Question about Sony VAIO PCV-V210P PC Desktop
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?

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
Power on the computer or restart it if it's already on.
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.
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.
What steps you take to solve a particular beep code will differ depending on the BIOS manufacturer.
