    Alright so a few days ago I found my old pc in the garage. I opened the case and cleaned the mess that was inside. When I try to start it, there is a long beep that stops and comes back again until I shut the pc off . No display on my monitor. Fans inside work, but it doesn't want to boot. It is a pretty old setup but I just wanna see it booting again for old times' sake. Any ideas?

    1 long Beep Code is indicative of video during POST.
    If it has a Video Card, make sure it is seated properly.

    If it does not have a Video Card but is instead embedded, the system can be eRecycled after pulling the hard disk.

    The Video Card seems to be seated properly, however, I took out the Ram just to see if it gives any beep codes about it. If it has no Ram, it should give 3 beeps if I am right. It still does long beeps. Maybe the Mobo is bad?

    Yes.

    You might as well pull the hard disk and eRecycle the unit.
