Beeping noise and will not start back up

\015 Bumped the front of modem yesterday and the screen went black. I shut all the main power off to the computer and when I tried to turn power back on it started beeping and the power will not come back on. I NEED HELP. There is nothing loose inside the modem.\015

Answers :

Hi there.
Open the side panel on the computer case (make sure its turned off and the power cord is removed from the back) take out the system memory (ram), get a clean dry paintbrush and clean the brass contacts on the memory and also clean any dust away from the slots it goes into, once you are happy that all the dust has gone reseat the memory making sure its well seated and clipped into place, close the side panel, return the power cord and turn on the PC, hopefully this will sort the problem out.
Please post back with the results.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

The USB and ps/2 ports are not working on power up. the keyboard and mouse are not recognized on boot up. The PC boots as normal to the desktop with no problems. All was working fine until i started messing around with a sound blaster card and upon turn off one time the above fail happened. Now when i switch on the PC I can hear a beeping noise which I'm guessing is a fail code or something. I'm guessing it's a bios fail but if I'm unable to use keyboard or mouse i cant really do anything..bios

I assume you have by now taken out the sound blaster card, I hope. The beeping is a code that tells you what the problem(s) are with your computer. Just taking out the sound card will be a start. If you had an onboard sound card and did not disable ... PC Desktops
