    ok, in order to help you, we need actual information.

    Does the bios come up?
    Is your bootloader starting?
    Is the problem after linux starts?
    etc........

    sosunds like a hardware problem, try having just the minimal kit in your p.c. e.g. memory,graphics,cpu & see if it boots. if it does, gradually add to it until you find the part that stops it booting. somtimes just taking out components & resating them works.

    That's so funny for some reason, sigged



    And it sounds to me that you have a buggered power supply, they do that after a while, how old is the computer?

    Also, some motherboard use a series of beeps to indicate problems (one beep = bad memory, two beeps = no video card, etc... ) look in your information about your motherboard

    Why not try Clearing the Cmos Settings of your PC by removing the Cmos Battery from its Socket and inserting a new battery.
