I Have had the same problem over and over again if you don't have the CPU fan properly "Hindged" on the Computer will give a load long beep... just wiggle it around or get a new one that might fit better... oh and make sure the CPU Hard Glue is fermly in place... Good Luck!!!!

As mentioned earlier:
- Try to find the motherboard name, like "ASUS M14LJ" or something like that. Google it, for example "ASUS M12LJ beep codes" and identify the beep code you are hearing.

- Pull out the CMOS battery (Looks like a coin) and wait 20 seconds before you put it back in.
- Remove, one by one, all your memory chips (RAM) and re-seat/reinstall them.
- Remove your graphics card and re-seat/reinstall it.

These are the most common fixes for a very odd hardware issue. If it doesn't work:
- Remove all your RAM and insert only ONE chip and boot.
- - - If it still beeps, try ANOTHER (only one) RAM chip. If that also beeps, then it is possible that one or more pieces of hardware is broken.

Had the same problem, found this via google

My problem was also caused by loose RAM, fitted it properly and it's fine.

Depending on how many beeps, will tell you what the issue is.
If not fixed after removing and reinserting Ram r changing the slots, attempt just removing one, then try start up, if nothing, then reinsert that one and remove another.
