The desktop is roughly 4-6 years old now. Back in the day, it would be running smoothly and quickly, but at its current stand-off, it's slow as hell. The computer tends to freeze and crash a lot. When it does freeze, usually what's on the screen is smeared all over the desktop and looks fuzzy/pixelated. When it crashes, it's obviously the BSoD (Blue Screen of Death). When either of those events occur, I press the power button and turn off the computer. 5-10 minutes later, I boot it back on, but something happened that I did not expect. The computer would begin to beep, repeatedly of course, about every 2-4 seconds until I decide to press the power button again. When I do try to press the power button again, the beeping cycle continues.
I would have to wait about a week or two for the computer to finally work again, but 2-3 hours later, the crashing or freezing begins, and then the beeping once again takes over my computer. I unscrewed the slide on my computer and checked what was wrong. It was dusty, so I cleaned it up a little using some Dust-Off (Air canister). I turned it on again, same symptoms. I do not know how to fix this problem.
Can someone help please? Thanks, many thanks...
