Please help!

It's a beep code indicating a problem with hardware or your bios settings.  The code shown on the motherboards small LED display may also have relevance.  Check your motherboard manual for what the beep codes or diagnostic LED codes mean.  What motherboard is that BTW?

 

What I would suggest doing anyway is making sure all cards and memory are seated properly, disconnecting it from the power and clearing CMOS.

Thanks for the reply, what are CMOs? Sorry I'm a noon when it comes to computers. The motherboard is a gigabyte, I'm not certain of the model but I might be able to find it when I get home. Thanks for the input I'm gonna try and google the error codes.

It's basically how the motherboard stores it's settings.  To clear the CMOS there's either a jumper or a button on the motherboard, or you can remove the battery.   http://www.howtogeek.com/131623/how-to-clear-your-computers-cmos-to-reset-bios-settings/

 

BTW what happened leading up to this?  Was it working one day and not the next, or has this problem followed any changes you've made?

 

I tried looking into what the beep code meant but was not sure.  It sounded like 8 longer beeps followed by 4 short.  Was hoping they might be in the manual for that motherboard.
