I turned my computer off last night, nothing out of the ordinary. I haven't changed anything on my computer. But when I got home today and I turned it on, my computer made three sequential beeps and the power supply fan started blowing loudly and it doesn't stop until I turn it off. My monitor won't come on either, and this is as far as I can get. I hope it's nothing seriously wrong with my computer. Any help is appreciated thanks.

Did you look up the beep codes for the system...in order to interpret properlly what the system is trying to tell you?

Found something. Three longs beeps are a "3270 keyboard card" problem. What does that mean?
