I have a major problem with my computer. When I go to turn the tower on it starts to beep. I hear a whole chain of beeps that sound like a heart monitor. It is a bunch of short beeps that never ends. It is hot today so I do not know if this has anything to do with it. My computer never does turn on it just beeps and the screen does not even come on. The computer is a E-Machine T5254. Any help would be nice since I have to print a report out for college and my laptop is not programed into the printer.

When was the last time you cleaned your computer out?

It's possible one of your keyboard keys is stuck in the down position.

Well I have Norton Antivirus 360 so I clean it out every other day or so. I will have to check for a stuck key right now. Would be crazy if that is all that is wrong.

Checked all of the keys. Pressed then all and none of them seem to be stuck. Still get the same beeps when I turn it on.

Oh, I did not do that. I would have to find a screwdriver to get all the screws out to open it first. I see no other way to open it.

I do not know if this means anything but I had my compiuter on when this started. It froze and then it started beeping. Would it still be a stuck key if it happened then? I did not even use the keyboard and the computer was on for at least half a hour before it started to beep and freeze.

I am suspecting some overheating problem. I had a similar problem like you did and it just kept freezing because of the high ambient temperature. You could either open the side panel and try to run it or you can try cleaning it out.

It is hot where I live today. Over 90 in fact. If that is the case then when it gets cooler the problem will go away. Never heard of a keyboard overheating though.

Actually the desktop itself is overheating by trying to leave the side panel open you might be able to get it run.

Maybe you can turn up the aircon so the room temperature can be lower and the computer hopefully can start up properly.

That would not work beuause where I live we only have air condtioning downstairs and my computer is upstairs. I am pretty sure my problem is due to it being so hot but I have had the compute for 5 years and never had this problem before in the summer. Still it is good to look for all possible causes and try to fix them to solve this annoying problem.

Going to call Best Buy tommarow to find out what they think the problem is and if the tower is bad if they will replace it. I have a feeling the heat killed it today as it was getting slower and slower over time and I had a noisy fan. These problems where worse when it was hot out. I will psot sometihng tommarow when I find out what Best Buy says and go from there.
