    just has bigwater said, sounds like failed hdd.

    If the cpu failed (lets i checked anyways), you shouldn't be hearing any beeps.

    Even with a bad hdd, the pc should boot so if you don't have anything on the monitor then the problem has to be from video/motherboard/ram or cpu. Please tell us how many beeps do you hear.
    Also take out the videocard and ram memory and put it back and see if is working.
  3. I took out the RAM and video card and it all seems to be working fine now this is my friends pc and boy was it dirty thanks for all your help love the forum
