Today I turned on my computer, just like everyday. But after awhile, it started to beep. A series of 4 different pitched beeps with a pause after all 4 have sounded. It keeps coming back and never stops. Whats going on?

if it's while you're in Windows, that means the internal temperature settings are to high and it's telling you to shut down before you fry your processor or more. If it's during the RAM count, then it's a different problem which i'll go more in-depth into later if you tell us whether it's secnario 1 or 2

As your computer goes through the POST (Power-On Self Test) those beeps you hear are BIOS codes giving you a heads-up or warning for what could be wrong. (notice I said could be).

Are they long or short beeps? or are they a combination of the two? Did you recently install some new memory? Don't make any assumptions yet (or fear your MB will get fried) - each BIOS mfg. has their own beep codes. After you identify the specific BIOS you have, you can go to their web site and see if they have any code reference page.
