At first my computer would not boot up, I reseated the RAM and the computer DID boot up, but only showed half the RAM (512 out of the 2 512 sticks). Next time I tried to start the computer, nothing happened, only the power LED stayed yellow, not green as usual.
I removed all the RAM, graphics card and power cable to the HD and NO BEEP at all. What is wrong? How do I fix this? Thank you.
I am having the same issue. Clearing/reset the bios will get the board to boot up, but when turned off and started again the board will not boot. you will have to clear the bios again. The board seems to be rebooting itself continuously before it evens get to the POST.

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.
A long continuous beep could be a video card problem or video RAM problem. Try reseating the video card or try a different video card. If the video card is builtin on the motherboard then it uses shared RAM and the RAM module may be faulty or needs reseating. Try testing the RAM at your friendly computer repair shop.
This beeping is usually caused by a bad Memory or Ram chip. The memory is the chip that is inserted in the purple slots in your display picture. Remove them if there is more than one and replace one by one. Make sure they are firmly reseated or it could damage the motherboard. Make sure both clips on either side are fastened properly.
Try booting computer again. If it continues beeping the memory module may be bad. Replace it with a new one.
Hi there. Three long beeps means there is a problem with the ram, get a soft clean paintbrush and clean the brass contacts on the ram and also clean the ram slots of dust and then reseat the memory and try to boot the machine again, if it still does not boot then the ram may have to be changed.
