    ok, I found out that the beeps mean it is a thermal warning through the intell sight, but they didn't tell me how to fix it. I have changed the power supply and for the few seconds that it does run all of the fans come on. I just think it needs to be reset somehow. The model of my computer is Systemax Venture HU2 B840 RTS PC, Intel Pentium D processor 840 3.2 GHz, MBO D945GPMLR VIIV MB

The beep codes are related to hardware issue with your computer. Could be the RAM, video card or the motherboard. However to help you better, we would need to know the model number of your computer and preferrebly the BIOS manufacturer

Spins but makes a beeping sound and wont register.


Well, It sounds like there is something lodged in your Hardware drive...The beeping is probably a warning signal to tell you that it is not properly booting up...You should go to a Computer Repairman...

Hi my computer wont start up and making beeping sound


Hi,

First of all you didnt mention how it gets shut down. So i can say 2 possible ways in which system gets shut down.

First thing is that when you boot windows it will get shut down constantly

Second thing is that it wont load windows. TO be more specific CPU wont get On.

So what you need to do is that If the problem is with the first case you need to see the windows need to be formatted and you can proceed successfully

IF the problem is with the second case you need to get repair the SMPS or you need to see the CPU interior circuits.

I hope it helps.

Thanks.
