Question about Home Fencing
Do you have power?
Posted on Jul 25, 2015
Testimonial: "yes, to took cover off and power light is on"
SOURCE: Computer turns on and beeps.
I suggest you check you memory sticks, and make sure they are seated properly. The long beep usually signifies a memory problem. If you have 2 memory sticks, I suggest removing 1 of them, then tuen on the PC, if it still beeps, powerdown by holding the power button in until it shuts down, then replace the removed one, and remove the other, if it boots, fine, then you will need to replace the memory that you have removed, but,,,,,if you only have 1 memory stick, I suggest you replace it, if the pc still beeps a long beep, then 1 of the memory sockets is bad, and a motherboard replacement is needed, either case, that long beep is a memory problem.

Your motherboard is complaining. Try reseating the memory and rebooting. If that doesn't help, you should consider another motherboard. You could probably get away with just replacing the CPU, but that's not too cost-effective. Its just time to upgrade!

The four beeps usually indicate a memory problem and it won't pass it's Power On Self Test. Try reseating the memory sticks, or, if you have two of them, take one out and try to start the machine and then swap them.
If this doesn't solve the problem, you most likely have a bad motherboard.
