Right, after starting my Sister's Computer it beeps every two secounds. The monitor doesn't display and the Tower seems to be working correctly but the Beeps say otherwise. I've tried taking everything out accept the Power Coord and then restarting but nothing but beeps. Do you have any idea or suggestions on what the problem could be? Recently it was sent to be fixed due to a large amount of spyware on the Computer which then decided to create Hardware faults and then the Harddrives went boom. Also, this is for my Computer. Sometimes it doesn't like to start up and will just appear as a Blank Screen, but restarting fixes this issue. We both you Vista 32bit.

The beeps mean something is wrong. Find out which bios it has and you can tell whats wrong with it by the beep codes.

Exactly. Also, if the motherboard came with a manual the codes might be in the back. As they are with mine.

Beeps are almost standard now... however I can't seem to remember precisely what these mean. Might be the video board isn't detected, or the RAM, or even the processor :hmm:

Check that everything seats well in its place, without dust in the connectors ? If that still fails, can you can test the hardware on another compatible and working machine ?

Here's a site that tells what beeps mean, and their sequences. I hope this helps Computer Post / Beep codes

Beeping at boot is traditionally a RAM fault. Check seating, or try different sets.

Beeping at boot can be anything from a missing power cable, to cpu seated wrong, to no video card. The beep code differs from bios maker to bios maker.
