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!!!!

This helped me too. Thanks a lot dude.
please help me find crscs on my pc
Thanks Tons!! After taking it all apart, WE just wiggled it around and it worked!!! You are awesome!
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.
You saved my family a ton of money. thanks!

My problem was also caused by loose RAM, fitted it properly and it's fine.
thx, it does fix my problem. the problem is that the RAM not quite plug in its slot. try to pull it out and plug it again, thx a lot...
try to change the location of your memory to other slot dim.. or try to change the memory a good one.. you can also erase the memory on the gold .. if still same u check olso the vga...
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.
