Hey guys, been viewing these forums for a while now and finally decided to register. I have a computer here i just built up for my grandparents, however after 2 weeks of use it now wont boot up, nothing on the screen, just a beep, pause beep, pause, beep.

What could be the cause of this? possibly a flat bios battery?

thanks
Mike

Welcome to PressF1 Mike,

There are a number of possible issues. Your best bet is to find the motherboard manual, and look up "Bios beep codes". It'll tell you what the beeping means.

Quite often something like this is caused by RAM which has come loose, or is faulty in some way.
