A lot of Beepen and Tooten But No Booten? - Usually a single...
(Page 3 of 4 )
Usually a single memory module must be installed in the first bank. If that doesn't fix it, swap out that module with the next one. You may need to identify the type of memory your computer uses and try a brand new memory module.
The reason your computer is emitting beep codes may be because the video circuitry is bad. If your motherboard has on-board video, try disabling it and installing a video adapter card. If your computer uses a video adapter card, try replacing it or removing it and enabling on-board video.
If that doesn't fix the problem, try removing any expansion cards (except the video adapter card) and disabling any I/O circuitry such as USB ports. If that doesn't work, try replacing the power supply.
If your computer still has a blank screen and is emitting beep codes, the only possibility left is a bad component on the motherboard. It could be a CPU failure, but replacing the CPU is usually expensive - if the type your motherboard uses is still available.
Replacing a motherboard involves almost totally is assembling the computer and may require reinstalling and/or reactivating the operating system, and replacing some drivers.
