Normaly one very short beep is a problem with memory. Swap out some of your memory modules - Unplug the PC before removing or inserting memory since there is power going to the memory even when the PC is turned OFF. You can start with one memory module installed and add more until it fails. Good Luck
Thanks alot man, it actually worked. i think the problem was the 8gb ram i will try slowly see how much it can run
There is one problem though, it seems if i put more than 2gb ram in it won't start, the pc came with 8gb

Sorry for multi posting
Ok, i think somthing is wrong with the powersupply, mainly. because now after several retries nothing turns on besides the 1 fan.. everything else is down
Wait i fixed that. i will try you're suggestion with the ram..
