Tower shuts off after it beeps on start up

\015 My computer acts like it's gonna start up normally....monitor turns on and normal boot screen starts up then the tower starts beeping and then it just shuts off pls help\015

Answers :

There is no way it's the video card because if it was, your bios wouldn't be showing up.

Try resetting your SEMOS by doing this, it'll put your bios at stock settings. To do this, unplug your computer then take out the battery on your motherboard for 10 mins, plug your computer back in. With computer on, re-insert battery.

You should also try removing any USB devices that may be causing your computer to re-boot.
It COULD be an issue with the video card or the memory. Try to remove and hook it up again. But make sure it will not loose.
