Check the motherboard manual for beep codes. It means there is a hardware problem.

*edit* After a little research: If you're using AWARD BIOS - These could be the problems you are experiencing...
(Source & Good Site for BIOS info: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm )


Repeating (endless loop) Memory error Check for improperly seated or missing memory.
1long, 3short No video card or bad video RAM Reseat or replace the video card.
High frequency beeeps while running Overheated CPU Check the CPU fan for proper operation. Check the case for proper air flow.
Repeating High/Low CPU Either the CPU is not seated properly or the CPU is damaged. May also be due to excess heat. Check the CPU fan or BIOS settings for proper fan speed.

Check your RAM, make sure it is seated correctly.

Check your CPU, make sure it is seated correctly.
-next-
Make sure all wired connections are properly connected and secure. (Especially make sure the 4-pin CPU power is in place)
-next-
Make sure the Video Card has an additional 6-pin power adapter with power going into it.

You won't get any output on the monitor with a failed POST test.

Well whatever you do, don't remove the CMOS battery. That'll make things much worse. If you need to reset the CMOS, short the pins or jumper them.

He said DON'T remove the battery. In some cases you won't even reset the BIOS like that, you need to short the jumpers or read your manual on resetting the BIOS.

I'm telling you... it's a hardware problem. You need to check the seating on all your hardware & wired connections. If everything is correct then you probably have a piece that is DOA.

One thing that MAY be the problem - Check the back of the PSU and make sure the red switch shows 115 and not 220. If it does show 220, just move it over to show 115.

"AMI beep codes: 3short , Base 64k memory failure,, A memory failure has occurred in the first 64k of RAM.The RAM IC is probably bad.""
Endless loops Beeps: missing or improprly seated Memory.
Award Bios: Same as above. Good luck with it.
