Every time I start my computer up it shuts down. Sometimes it happens in the process of starting up and other times it does it shortly after it starts up. So I restart it, then if works fine. Sometimes I have to restart twice. Oh, and when it shuts itself down if makes 3 deliberate beeps. I've gotten a blue screen a few times, but it flashes so quickly I can't read the error message.I was told it was overheating, but my fans are clean and appear to be spinning just fine.

Try booting into Safe Mode by holding down the F8 key while your computer turns on. See if the issue remains when in Safe Mode. This will help determine if you have a hardware or software issue.

Beep codes vary from machine to machine, but one of the most common ones is the three beep for ram.

They are neither long, nor short beeps, totaling approx 2 1/2 seconds.

If that sounds right to you, it may be as simple as re-seating your ram. In other words, shutting down, removing the ram and re-inserting it. That's it, that's all.

All is well in Paradise.
