    Please read the rules, thats not a great title, also, the use of the word "fuk" is a bit out of hand.

    But anyway, have you ran down all the basics? Checking connections etc, Also, Full System Specs would help

    More importantly, what does it beep? Beeps are usually a code of some sort.

    OK sunshine, lets try this again. The question to you was in reference to the beeping sequence you're going on about. Is it s aseries of short beeps? A single long beep that then repeats itself? How about 2 short beeps followed by a long one then repeating?

    The beep sequence is your motherboard's way of telling you where the problem lies. Once you figure out the beeping code, you can pull out the motherboard manual and begin troubleshooting.

    Well full specs would still help, but at least from my experience, that tends to mean bad memory etc

    The best we can try and help is work with what you tell us. From the start, all we knew about your PC is that it has a DVD burner. Hmmmm, that's really gonna help us know what we're dealing with. :rolleyes2

    First reply you got, asked about your system specs. Then a comment about beep codes. Darth was nice enough to reiterate what I didn't bother saying. It's not until the last few posts that you actually say what we need.

    and typing...and finishing lines with dots...isn't really...a...good way to communicate...A...little punctuation never hurt anybody...yet

    Anyways, here's a list of beep codes. Compare the list to what you hear, and see what it says - http://www.pcmech.com/show/troubleshoot/14/
