    My computer is all AOpen parts running on Windows ME. It was acting funny one day and the next it wouldn't start up. When I press the power button the processor fan starts to run for a few seconds, then the CPU speaker beeps a few times and the whole thing just shuts back off. I'm thinking its the power supply, I've had that problem before on a different comp but it was different symptoms. I have a few spare power supplies from my comp graveyard I dont know if they're interchangable or how to tell if they are. Help? :confused:

    Open up the computer and make sure everything is connected paying attention to graphics card and ram

    and listen for that beep sequence again , it actually means something , there should be a pattern to it, and we can look up the motherboard manufacturer and see what that code means.
