Exclamation Annoying problem with hardware....

my mate brought his computer ova so we can lan and when he brought it we were setting it up we started to get an anoying problem... everything was fine at his house but now when we start the computer it starts making a constant slow anoying beeping sound.
all the lights and fans come on when we turn on the computer but there is nothing on the screen and after a few seconds it starts beeping ... soo anoying

ive asked around and people tell me that something isnt plugged in so i opned the computer up but i cant see anything wrong.. im not familiar with the inside of a computer so i dont know..

there are a few wires that arnt pluged in but there is no place to plug them in and i dont know what goes where...

please help this is kinda getting me angry cause ive tryd to fix it but it just keeps beeping!!!

the beep is a beep-code. either find the manula for the computers motherboard or search for it online, either way it will help if you can identify what the beep signifies. i'm thinking similarly to james, in that something has come loose during transport. likely culprits: RAM, CPU, video card.
