Default Bad - Computer Wont Boot?

Okay, on my 2nt pc, i went to turn it on a few hours ago and all i get is a black screen, and a constant beeping noise.
it worked today at 12:00 no probs, now it wont start? i checked all the wires, and everything seems fine.


add: This is not overclocked. windows xp. 1.8ghz, 40 gig harddrive.

any ideas?

Failed memory................No post. How many mem. sticks? If more that 1, place in individual sticks until it hangs with the long beep. Try reseating the memory and if it boots run memtest86 on that RAM.
