1. (VIDEO CARD)- remove the video card clean it up... you can use eraser...make sure to remove the dust/lint .....
2. (RAM)- If the problem is the ram ... its the same.. remove the ram clean it..the same as you clean the video card...but if you put back the ram to the slot...make it sure to lock it up and tighten up..just monitor it that its not loosen...
3. (PROCESSOR) - remove the processor ... clean the white one I mean the paste
(thermal paste) then if you don't have that paste try to ask the hardware im sure they have one and grab it... don't leave the processor if it is not attach in the slot make sure to have that paste first it has time limit in exposing the processor it may cause a problem if the processor wont put back int the slot.. <the main solution is change the thermal paste then lock it up tightly.. the most important thing is just...lock it up so tight..>
this is only my suggestions ....
I hope it helps....

if there's any comment well.... i'll take it as a pleasure...thanks
Yeah, I have seen the exact the same thing. I took out every removable card from my computer and blew the dust off and re-installed it. When I started up the computer, the problem had dissapeared. It was a dust particle somewhere in the connection of one of my cards or a card that had somehow came loose. Either way it works fine now. Dust around the processor can cause overheating also. This will cause beeping. Make sure the processor and memory is seated correctly. The tabs on the sides of the memory should lock. If not then it needs to be taken out and reseated.
Its been a while since the original post but this reply is for those who may not have succeeded trying other suggestions listed here.
OS: XP with SP3 (fresh install)
Condition: CPU beeps in a certain order; monitor stays blank; only fan running.
Unplug computer and detach all external cables.
Detach all removable parts from the motherboard including and specially RAM.
Clean out as much dust/dirt/lint as possible with a hose attached to a vaccuum cleaner.
Next, blow with a hair dryer maintaining a distance of at least 1-2 feet.
Connect all devices as before.
Make sure you put the RAM in properly.
Ok, I was having the same problem the first guy was having, but unfortunatly, doing all the reccommended things didnt fix it. Im going to reinstal windows and hope that fixes it. Before it pulled this little stunt, it wouldnt turn off, what could the problem be there?
if your computer beeps when you start your computer it means your computer has been over heated during the last session or the internal battery of the computer just beside the processor needs to be changed. the battery acts as a switch, without it you cannot start your pc.if the computer has been overheated then open your CPU AND DUST IT WELL. AND IF IT DOESN'T WORK THEN TRY TO CHANGE THE BATTERY OF YOUR COMPUTER.
Ok, I just had this problem occur with my parents computer
(Short beeps, Black screen)
All I did was clean up the PC of dust, Re-seat CPU/HSF, Ram, PCI cards, GPU, and I reapplied Thermal Compound just for good measure. This worked perfectly. and the computer now runs as it should.
Follow these simple steps, and it should run, If not... Obviously you have another problem.
be glad you have a beep. I overheated my computer and the next morning it acts like everything is just fine with one exception : the monitor will not start. (yes ive changed everything from power sypply to monitor- including cpu)-lol
I am not sure it is the answer to all of the problems, but I removed the power cord from the PC and then I removed all of the cards and the RAM. I then used canned air to do a DNC on the entire inside of the PC. I also made sure I dusted the cards and slots. Then I reinstalled everything and plugged the power cable back into the PC. Pressed the power button and the PC came on and I was able to go to the desk top!
