hey everyone

ok i just recently bought a new computer. everything has worked fine until today. i went to turn it on and i heard a long beep which is normal except usually following the beep you would hear the hard drive working and another beep but this time only the one beep happened, and at the very first black screen it says processor type AMD athlong 3500+ and freezes up. no sequence of buttons not even crtl alt del works to unfreeze it. this really sucks because its a new computer and i really really really do not want to go throught the sending it back and getting it fixed or my money back. its a great computer until now haha. when it was working, at the black first screen a RAM count usually came up and thats all i had time to read as it switches fairly fast. the weird thing is this happened once before but i just rebooted and it worked, this is not the case anymore.

any help as soon as possible would be appreciated.
