Strange totalcrash and afterwards booting difficulties

I was using my computer normally, then suddently he crashed heavily. Monitor black, sound stop, keyboard dead.

I restartet manually (pressing the button on the tower), then something strange happend, which never happened to me before:

He made strange beeps and the monitor stayed black.

The beeps were like this:

short beep, pause, short beep, pause, short beep, long pause, short higher beep, pause, short normal beep... then it seems just like he beeps randomly... Then the whole begins from the beginning i think... nothing more happens.. no bios, nothing.. :S

Even after wayting a while, unplugging everything, it's still the same.

Yesterday he worked perfectly, and from then I did not change anything. Didn't even turn him on.

Help please?

Hello and Welcome to SF !

Seems like it could be a Hardware issue. Check this article Hardware Diagnostic | Captain Debugger and post us the results.

Hope this helps,

Hi, thanks for the quick answer. But I don't quite follow, I burnt that memtest on a cd, but how am I supposed to boot from CD, when nothing happens? It's just a black monitor and the computerbeeps... no bios, nothing.

Hello,

According to Beep sound you mentioned Computer POST and beep codes it could be a RAM issue itself.

Code:
1 long, 3 short 			Conventional/Extended memory failure

Maybe it's DIMM slot itself might have problem. In that case I would recommend to take you System to a local IT store.
