    Before posting this new thread, I searched for problems similiar to mine but could not find one. So here's whats happening.

    Starting just yesterday I turned my computer on one morning from being off overnite and as soon as the computer got power, all i hear is BIOS beeps . .constant neverending beeps. I turned it off, turned it back on and everything loaded and ran fine. The same thing happened this morning in the exact same way.

    Is something about to fail? =/

    Thanks in advance for anyones time and thoughts =)

    Open it and check your power connections, re-seat the ram and PCI cards.

    Are the beeps coming in bursts of 3?

    no, constant fast beats. keeps doing it til i turn it off. Nothing comes up on my monitor, as if the computer cant even boot up. I find it odd that i can turn it off and right back on and everything works fine. I will try your suggestion first chance I get. TY

    In the meantime, you might want to run memtest and hard drive diagnostics.

    Memtest:

    Hard drive diags are available at the website of your drive's manufacturer.

    Those are 2 things that you can eliminate as suspects by running these tests--or maybe you'll see why this happened...
