Hello,

Today when I tried to turn my PC on it beeped 4 times, turned off by itself, turned on again, beeped 4 times, ... It went like that in a loop. I managed to turn it off by holding the power button until it stopped doing that.

I searched online and found that i should take my RAM out and pu it back in. I did that and now when i turn the PC on it just goes in a 4 beep loop, without turning off this time.

The screen is off the entire time.

Any suggestions are very much appreciated.

Run Memtest 86+ from your optical drive; burn the image to a CD or DVD, set your BIOS to boot first from the optical drive, and boot with the disk in the drive. Let Memtest finish, and note any errors in red at the bottom of the screen. I suggest test one stick of RAM at a time if you are running multiple sticks.

 

To check the beep codes, go to your BIOS manufacturers website and see if they list the beep codes for your BIOS. Beep codes are not always 100% accurate, but any clue you can get as to the cause is helpful.

Ok, so you can't even boot into virtual?  Have you tried Memtest? If the problem is in Windows Boot Loader, it will restart when it attempts to load Windows. Does it even get that far? Next thing to try is to boot into Safe Mode. If still no help, try to access your BIOS screen by tapping the appropriate key as the computer boots.

Hi,

 

Remove the memory and turn on the machine then compare the beeps you get with memory installed or not, the beeps are the same?

 

Post the brand and model of the machine or the information about the motherboard if its a custom build.
