More information might be helpful. For all we know you are talking about a truck backing up. Describe what you problem is.

Are you hearing these beeps at start up? If so, I think you are hearing wrong. Can't find any BIOS that has as many as 5 long beep for any error. Could be two errors back to back.

Look at the link below for error codes. The listing on the left has the majpr BIOS makers.

Sorry for not putting more info...well at startup i would hear 5 long beeps and 1 short, however now i only hear continuous long beeps. I have read info about making sure RAM is sitting correctly and making sure no dust is around and i have already done this....

well what i did last was remove the processor then turn on the pc and the beeps stopped. i know i shouldnt do this: but i turned on the computer with only the processor in , no fan, and it booted up...i put fan back and it does the continuous beeps. i am coming to the conclusion that its a processor error....pls help...hpe i put enough info this time....

The computer will not run without the processor so that proves nothing.

Possible it could be a series of 1 long beeps? That would indicate a RAM problem. Remove all RAM and boot with processor in place. Post the error then. Also, do you getting any video?

You need to give some history to put this into some context.

Ok, so these are the things I have done: booted computer computer without memory/with memory, cleaned out the memory. This had no effect on the computer, it still would show no picture and continuous long beeps.

I was able to start up the computer twice without the processor fan, i know this is super dangerous, but I was able to, and picture came up....so i fig well maybe its the processor. Well, i ordered a new processor and fan, but it still did the continuous long beeps.

I have test just about everything. I have tried to boot up without a hard drive and it still wont POST.

The video is integrated, and i dont have additional parts so i have not been able to test that. Anyhow, i am thinking maybe i just need to get a new motherboard?

The motherboard i currently have on it is abit nf-m2s...

i have given up! i am trying to save money by not replacing the whole computer but i cant find the problem....

hope u can help more!

First off, try to return the processor and fan if possible.

DO NOT run the computer without the CPU fan.

Your power supply may be defective.

Disconnect all the cables going to the drives in the computer. Remove all but one stick of memory.
Disconnect any USB devices except the keyboard.

Now try to boot and see if you get any picture. If so, then you need to replace the power supply.
