Hi, I'm having serious issues with my computer. 3 days ago it stopped working for unknown reasons. It all started at a morning when I tried to boot my computer: it didn't boot. It had the green light on, and it gave high frequency bleeping sounds (7 or 8 I think), I thought it was my CPU overheating so I let it for in fresh air for a day, which is more than enough. Once again, I attempted to boot my computer, it still gave me the green light without anything on the monitor, but this time without bleeping. 


What's the problem guys?


Thanks in advance.

is the monitor at least getting power? is there a red green and blue broad stripe on it? is there a message "no video signal"?


           7 or 8 beeps is cause for concern and can be interpreted depending on your make/model of PC. For it to be working like that one day and then 3 days later it isn't completing the boot without any kind of variation/activity  is not normal.


 Where was this green light? on your keyboard or on your motherboard or on your case?

This can be because of the faulty monitor or the RAM chips have gone bad.


Try to connect a monitor which is in working condition


Try replacing the RAM

Whenever a PC beeps like that at startup, it usually means one of three things has gone bad -- the CPU, the RAM, or the video card. You can either swap them out yourself, or if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, take it to someone who is and have them do it. In some cases, it's simply a case of the RAM or video card becoming slightly unseated. Pushing it back in will sometimes do the trick.
