What is the Operating system on this PC,Xp?
This is more likely a hardware issue what is the make and model of the PC?

See if you can Identify the beep here.

I am going to move this to the XP forum so that the folks with better brains for this type of problem will see it.
Good Luck,
Boopme

If you download SIW you will be able find out what the make and model of your motherboard. Once we find out what that is we can find the user's manual and see what the beeping is all about.

Is this one continuous beep? One continuous beep in an indicator that the RAM isn't seated properly.

If you look in the case be sure that you touch the metal of the case to discharge any electrostatic charges you may have, these can kill RAM modules.

Look at the RAM, there are retaining clips at the end of each RAM slot, these should be snug against the RAM module. If it isn't try pressing down on both ends and the same time.

Ok...I'm confused, you have described this as a beeping now, and a long beep before. What is it please. You can check out the beep code here.

sry not trying to be confusing the beeps are varying i get the beeps as the computer is running will start as a single beep then will beep in diff patterns and only way to really discribe it is its sounding exactly like if i had a old simon sez game running in the tower the single beep i mentioned was when i first turn the tower on its a single normal beep

ok took a look at the beep guide u linked to hard to compare the beeps to it due to the the diff patterns im getting though the 1 i get that sounds like a siren could maybe be compared to the 1 listed as a over heating prob though i dont think i was over heating when i installed the program u linked me to i checked temp was running at 114f with seems high but im a relative noob when it comes to comps so i got no idea what a average temp should be lookin in my tower though all fans are spinning except the one directly mounted on the mobo

Do any of the beep code at the site I supplied the link to match yours?
