nothing... i still have got the same problem.
according to google its the psu or system board (motherboard) or keyboard problem (i pulled the keyboard cable out of the case so that i am sure it is not the keyboard that is causing the problem)'.
so are there any more suggestions?

sorry for my bad english by the way.

how many beeps? it that will tell you... it should be a certain number of beeps per cycle (2,3,4) and some of them may be longer or shorter. Google the meaning (such as 3 short beeps on mother board) and see what it has to say.

Blinks red 8 times (once per second), then a 2-second pause, and then 8 beeps
Invalid system ROM based on bad checksum. Entering FailSafe (Boot Block) recovery mode:
1.Reflash the system ROM (FailSafe Boot Block ROM Recovery).
2.Replace the system board.


that doesn't sound promising.

Sounds like a fried board to me, so long as a faulty Powersupply didn't fry it you will fix it... if not you may just BBQ another board.
