Could it be a problem with your sound card? A bad sound card can prevent a computer from booting, and so far as I know, there is no combination of BIOS beeps that could cause this. Is the sound coming from your speakers or from the little PC speaker inside the case? If it's the soundcard sound, and that's on the motherboard, perhaps you can enter the BIOS and disable it. (I've seen BIOS's that allow this.) I suppose it could even be a modem card since they usually have a little piezoelectric speaker on them. At any rate, it would help to know where the sound is coming from.

Check your motherboard - many different things can cause this. Here's one of them: http://badcaps.com/ident/

Take a look at the power supply. The last time that I had that problem it was a bad surge supressor.

I'm having a similar problem, my notebook will power on (I don't get any beeps) and then all lights but the power light will go off and the fan turns off and the comp sits.

How do I even identify the problem here if the computer won't do anything? Any ideas?

Thanks. Peace.
