Hi everyone,

Recently my computer has been emitting a loud continuous beep at startup. I also noticed that the green CPU light that's usually constant turns on and off until I get to windows. I've had this beeping before and it would cease for a while after a quick visit to BIOS, but recently the beep has been much longer in addition to the CPU light fluctuating.

Any ideas what the problem could be? Thanks

Find your motherboard/computer manual and look up the beep/blink codes. Hard for us to throw out any info without model info.
