Here's a blurb on reseating your video card, while you are in the PC do the same thing with any other cards present and also reseat your RAM. When everything is plugged back in place, power up your system and see if you can boot.
  • Shutdown and switch off but do not remove the power cord.
  • Take off the cover.
  • Hold on to a metal part of the case now and as often as you can during the entire process.
  • Pull out the power cord.
  • Undo the screw holding the video card in place and unplug any cables going to the card.
  • Unplug the card by pulling firmly upward. There may be a latch at the back of the card, press down on this to help eject it.
  • If there is a lot of dust around use a can of compressed air to blow out the card slot.
  • If the edge connectors of the card look tarnished clean them lightly with a pencil erasor.
  • Firmly plug the card back in and secure it with the screw.
  • Put the case cover back on.
  • Check in the end of the monitor cable that there are no broken or bent pins (some pins are missing - that is normal).
  • Connect the monitor cable, turn the securing screws finger tight only, switch the monitor on and reboot.
If you still hear beeps when you try to restart go here to decode them (the link to BIOS beep codes is in the column on the right) :

Bios-Central

Thanks for the reply but..

I didnt do the things you just said..Once my computer was off,i waited for a few minutes and on again..My Computer was back to normal but its loading was slower than last time..I looked at the Task Manager and scanned with HijackThis only a few processes!My Computer was loading as slow as that time i got Aurora Virus,which made my computer slow too!But now i got no Aurora,my Computer is still slow too..-.-

This could be an overheating problem -
Buy a can of compressed air from the supermarket, electronics store, etc.
Shutdown and power off, take the computer outside maybe, then open the case and use the compressed air to blow all the crud out of the CPU fans and heatsink (use a pencil to jam the fans because they can be damaged by overspinning in the air blast) Do the same for the power supply fan and the video card fan and heatsink if there is one.
Take the PC back inside and connect it up. Before replacing the cover power up the PC and check all the fans are spinning. If not they may need to be replaced.

Do NOT use air-compressor air for this as there is a problem with the high moisture content.

:thumbsup:
If the beeping was constant and not in morse code, then most likely you have a failing fan. I have had this happen to power supply fans, system fans and proc fans. The easiest thing to check is to see if the fan (s) are running. Let the system cool for a few hours, then power on. If there is no beeping during the BIOS post, then it's not RAM, and I would look for a thermal fault (overheating).
If it's just a fan, then these are easy and cheap to replace. Stick a new one in, and you'll be off and running...

Um..i am just a little kid..so cant do what Rimmer said..but,i downloaded Belarc and cant find where they said my system temperature..what is morse code..sorry,dont quite understand much of this computer things..my fan is still moving,can feel the air..Before i off my computer and let it rest,what is the meaning of Morse Code??

er also,what causes overheating and will it make my computer explode..??

The beeping is sometimes in a rhythm, "POST" (Power On Self Test) failure codes. Morse Code is three beeps to one letter such as: LONG, short, LONG... Depending on the make of your motherboard these post codes indicate different failures.

There may be more than one fan on your system; my systems each have two Case fans, one processor fan and one inside the power supply.

Rest easy that your computer will not explode, but it can overheat and burn whatever component is overheating. This will cost to find and fix.

The electricity running through the system gives off energy; this energy heats the different components to some degree. The one that gets the hottest is the processor since it is the one component doing the most "work" it is the one that gets the hottest... (That's really oversimplified, but you should get the idea.)

Have an expert work on it; it should be a fairly simple fix.

Good luck...

Well I can't find the temps in Belarc either! I just started recommending that because what I used to use (Everest) is no longer supported. Let's try another one - SpeedFan
- just don't mess with the clock settings. When Speedfan is installed it will put an icon on your desktop - just double click that and close the warning page. The first page will (after a moment) show you your system temperatures depending on the number of sensors your motherboard has. Some of them will be nonsense, just post them all back here.

Hmmm... difficult to say. Those temps are good. Almost too good to be believable.
What processor and speed have you got?

Fan 1 - seems to be screaming away - but maybe that's it's designed speed.
Fan 2 - don't worry about that - you may not have a Fan2, or it may be a two-wire fan that has no sensor. No sensor = speed zero.

Re the cleaning with the air-can, its no big deal. There are no dangerous voltages inside a computer - except in the power supply (the metal box where the power cord plugs in). NEVER open the power supply. NEVER poke anything into it. Just leave it alone. If it has a problem, replace it. The rest of the PC is no danger whatsoever.
If you are still not confident about using the air-can to blow out the dust, can you get someone older to do it for you? It may be the cause of all the problems.

I think you can still get the version of Everest that has all the features at:

http://www.snapfiles.com/get/everest.html
or here:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

The freeware version on lavalyss Everest page seems to have disappeared.

AIDA 32, The predecessor to Everest can be downloaded here:

Temperatures
Motherboard - 23 C (73 F)
CPU - 24 C (75 F)
Aux - 22 C (72 F)
Seagate ST320410A - 44 C (111 F)

Cooling Fans
CPU - 4327 RPM

Voltage Values
CPU Core - 1.50 V
+2.5 V - 2.55 V
+3.3 V - 3.34 V
+5 V - 5.00 V
+12 V - 12.59 V
Debug Info F - 27 00
Debug Info T - 7E 83 80
Debug Info V - 7E D6 D2 CA D2

I think all temperatures etc. changes every minutes..And also,how to make Can Of Compressed Air?I want to try Rimmer's Method!

By the way,whats AIDA32 for?Everest is also a diagnostic and benchmarking program right?
