Answers :

Try removing your RAM cards leaving only 1 at a time in a try to boot until you figure out which RAM card is causing it. Sometimes bad RAM can cause issues like this.

\015\012If that doesn't work, try unplugging the power from the tower, and then open up the case and remove the CMOS battery which is on the main board (motherboard). It's a little flat round battery. Leave it out for 30 seconds or so, then put it back in, close your case, and try to boot up. What this does is clears the CMOS so it will be set to default bios settings. After you do this, it may show a picture on the screen, and then you can go back into your bios settings and set anything you need to back up. Or you can just load "Optimized Defaults" and then press F10 to save the settings and reboot.
