    As of today I have a machine that will not boot. The power light comes on, the fan spins but it quickly starts beeping. The beep is continuous. I took the memory out and put it in another machine and that machine booted fine. So I don't think it is the memory. Everything else I am reading says it may be the power supply. If the lights come on and the fan spins would it be the power supply? The machine is an Acer. I would appreciate any help.:confused:

    Could you provide a bit more detail? Is your PC and desktop, or a laptop?
    Beep codes should tell you what fault the computer is finding. Do you have the manual for your PC?

    Possibilities could be (but aren't limited to) :

    1.) Bad power supply or connection problem (desktops)
    2.) Bad motherboard
    3.) Dead Video card
    4.) Memory not seated correctly
    5.) Corrupt BIOS or problem with BIOS settings
    6.) Dead CMOS battery
    7.) Dead CPU (not very common)
    7.) Dead CMOS battery
