    So my boss just called me up telling me her computer won't turn on, it just beeps. I've been doing tech support for them, but this has never occured to me, i'm more of a software guy. Any clue as to why this would be happening and how to fix it? Sounds like a heat issue.

    The beeps are a code used to diagnose the problem.

    How many beeps? Is it one short and two long, three short, four short, three long? What motherboard/model PC is it? Not all models give or use the same beep codes.

    At this point, it can be any number of problems causing the symtoms.

    The beep patterns are usually obtainable from the mobo web site. They are used to tell us where the hard ware problem is.
