My HP Compaq Elite Series 8400 beeps 5 short beeps on boot, but doesn't start up.

For some background, I was installing a mod on Minecraft ( was running perfectly fine at the time ) but then the game froze and the blue screen of death appeared, it then restarted, but beeped 5 short times with the LED being constantly lit, then it didn't start at all, the LEDs shut off, but the fans are running and the drives are whirring, the shortly after, the power supply fan starts going at an incredibly rpm (whilst still increasing) so I shut it off.
I then re-seat the 4 RAM sticks and clean up all the little remains of dust around the chassis, but the same thing happens when it boots up again.
Is there any possible fix? Since I use this as my daily driver.

Any help will be appreciated, thanks!
