Yesterday I had to unplug everything to move my computer, but once I plugged everything back on, the computer won't start. It turns on then gives me a long beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepppppp. I didn't do anything to it but unplugged and plugged back on. I was thinking maybe it's my power supply? It's a hardware issue I think since I didn't do anything to windows. Any idea how to get it working again? Thanks.

Howdy:

Sounds like you may have shook something loose inside..

Open the case and make sure the ram modules and all PCI/AGP cards are inserted all the way and tight..

can we rule out power supply? i don't wanna go and buy a new one and replace it if it's not the problem.

and i did open up initially after i heard the beep to see what was up and everything looked fine...but i'll check again.

Physically remove and re-seat everything you can EXCEPT for the CPU..

Odds are, you shook a ram module loose..

Yeah, you were right. When I got home I checked the videocard and it wasn't fully locked in. Got it in and now it's working. I'm on it as we speak. Thanks guys :tazz:
