Windows 7: My computer won't boot up!!

My computer won't boot up!!

Hi there you all, ....
This problem appears, dissapears and reappers.
Debug Led on the back shows "32" and then I hear 1 long beep (by long i mean longer than the two beeps after) and two short beeps, then nothing shows on the screen.
I cannot do a startup repair because it won't even go to BIOS.

This problem has happened to me like two more times in the past. First time I reseated graphics card and memory and problem solved. Second time i just reseated graphics card and problem solved. This time neither would work.

This computer is almost new, (7 months). and was built from scratch. I don't see how it would be possible that I have damaged hardware.

I have attached a PC wizard report I did before the problem in case you all need it.

Thanks you all in advance...

Yes man, thanks for your quick response, however, i don't think i will be able to boot from that disc, since i cannot boot from my windows installation dics itself to make a startup repair.
I have no acces to Bios or anything as I said, so i cannot change the boot order.

Anyways, i am downloading the windows x64 recovery disc right now, i will try in case it is different in this case..
Thanks a lot and will let you know inmediately..

PS: i forgot to say that today, after leaving the computer alone for 5 hours, I tried turning it on and it did, but it got a black screen giving me a couple of options, 1: enter setup. 2: boot up with last good known configuration.
Before those 2 options it said CMOS error. (probably because I pushed the "clear CMOS" button in the back of my MOBO before turning it on).

THANKS

update

hey,,,,, just to let you know....pc logged in again and the installation dvd was inside, (after leaving the comouter alone for an hour or something).
So I went to sart up repair and it did nothing: start up repair could not find or couldn't repair any issues or something.
I restarted and there we go again, no boot up and no way to get to the installation disk.

I also used the memory diagnostic tool and errors.

If that's an Award ( or IBM ) bios. The beeps mean a video error therefore BIOS cannot display anything.

Hi Rich,


In that thread you linked, it seems the OP used system repair options from the Vista recovery disc.

Not sure that's going to help here.

Hardware issue related to video is the message bios is giving by the beeps.

My motherboard uses a slightly modified version of the American Megatrends AMIBIOS.
I look the AMIBIOS Support and they don't list the one long and two short beeps code.

So i am slightly lost here.

But thanks
