Switch off, take out the RAM and re-insert one RAM stick only (if more than one). Power up and see if there is any difference. If not and you have more than one RAM stick, swap the sticks.
If that does not help disconnect everything except the floppy drive, take out all add-on cards except for the video card (if there is one), unplug everything from the back except the power, monitor, keyboard and mouse. Reboot.
Any changes? Any beeps?
