Question Computer won't boot :(


For no apparent reason my computer stopped working.

Yesterday, i left home and left my computer on, never had any problems.

i get home today, and i see my monitor is off with its light blinking. but my computer is still running.

So i press the power button to turn it off. then i press it again, and the computer starts up, the monitor stays off, and instead of a short beep from computer speaker, i get a much longer one.

But the point is the monitor is off and at first i thought over heated maybe, because we had a very stinking hot day today?

but its cooled down now and it still does the same thing, so any help would be nice, thanks.

Open the case and reseat your memory. If you have a video card, reseat that as well. Power it on and let me know what happens.
