My computer is only 3 months old but last week it started to act up. I was using the computer for games and the internet for more than 2 months and it was working perfectly fine until last week. When I turned on the computer, I heared multiple beeps each about 4 or 5 seconds long. I don't know how many times it beeped but I stopped counting after 10 beeps. I reattached all the cables including the plug for the video card and I started the computer and it worked. Later that day, the computer just shutdown as if there was a brown-out. I started the computer and it said the keyboard cannot be found so I connected it properly and restarted it and it worked. After a day while I was playing a computer game, a "blue screen of death" appeared and it said "bad pool header." It only happened once and for about three days my computer was working fine.
But 5 days ago, the computer again produced the multiple beeping sound and no matter how many times I start it, it's the same. I gave up on using the computer that morning and then I tried it again in the afternoon. I started it and the beeping was gone. I can only hear the fans and no POST. I restarted it a couple of times and nothing happened. After a day, I started it and it worked fine. I'm able to use my computer since then but every night, when I start it, I again get the multiple beeps and it would only work after a couple of restarting in the morning. I also occasionally get the "out of range" message when I start a game but it works fine again after restarting.
Can someone please help me? What could be the problem?
