Last night, my computer was working perfectly. When I tried to boot up this morning, I got 1 short BIOS beep. I reseated the RAM and whatnot to try and fix the problem. It didn't work. I rewired the whole thing because it needed it badly. The beep was now 1 long bios beep. I just tried it and now there is no BIOS beeps, but the computer does not boot up. The side 122mm fan and the front fan power up, but the cpu fan doesn't. I am really confused on this one. Please help me out.

Have you plugged the CPU fan in correctly?

It is plugged in correctly.

Last night I took out the mobo battery for 15-20 minutes and reinserted it. When I power on, the fan now runs, but the monitor says "No Signal" and goes into sleep mode.

I fiddled with it some more this morning. I took out the memory and went stick by stick. ( I had been trying to boot up with all 3 inserted). I should say that with the three sticks at once, the mobo didn't make any beeps or anything when booting. I really thought it was dead. But after only booting up with one stick of RAM, I get my one Bios beep again. I tried with each stick and it was the same beep. And now when I put all three back in the same order as before, I get a beep.

This doesn't make sense! Please help!


Note: All fans and drives boot up correctly. The monitor reads "No Signal" in a box for a few seconds then goes into sleep mode.

Just tried each stick of memory on its own. (Stick 1 in slot 1. Boot. Stick 1 in Slot 2. Boot. Stick 1 in Slot 3. Boot. Stick 1 in Slot 4. Boot. Stick 2 in Slot 1. Boot. Etc, etc.) I got that one beep each time. I just put all three in at the same time once more. And now I don't get a beep, but my monitor still reads " No Signal"

Could be the power supply. Do you have access to a known good power supply?
