Do you know the manufacturer of the machine? In order to check the bios beep codes we need to know the mobo version or the manufacturer of the machine you are using.

Does it boot up at all?

It doesnt say anything about the motherboard......... Probably a crappy emachines one.

Anyway, try using the email tech support at the bottom of this page.
