I cant even get to the log on screen. And if you mean switch it to another computer i have no other. Only my laptop and the computer thats not working. And the beeps are continuous nunununununu non stop.. And what are dimms???
Non stop beep is indicative of Ram at fault..
Take the side off the PC....Ram is located on the right of your CPU...remove all ram except the stick closest to the CPU and try to boot.
If it wont boot shut down and swap sticks and try to boot again. If it still won't boot try putting the Ram into another Dimm (1 at a time)
If it won't boot at all after you try all combinations then the ram is at fault..it would be highly unlikely for both dimms to fail.

Mind you the hardware specs of the faulty PC would be helpful.I'm assuming here that you have dual channel ram.

cheers

PS..Ram fits into dimms 1 way and 1 way only...DO NOT Force it to fit..theres a locator slot on the Ram and in the Dimm..match it up before fitting...theres lockin tabs on each end (of the dimm) that you open when you take it out and you will see/hear them click in when the Ram is bedded in properly.

Also, how would i know what to plug the cords into the computer. because this may be the problem. some1 was messing around and may have put one of the cords into the wrong slot. the cords are black yellow red and have see thru caps on top of them. some are hooked in and some are not. some say p2 p3, and other 1 says yc cable and foxconn.. hope this helps..

BIOS Beep Codes - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Beep codes...but apparently your PC could have one of several different Bios's...only one that fits what you say is a continous beep is the bottom Bios (award)....and it means serious system failure as in maybe CPU overheating...

so take the side off your case and see if the CPU fan is working..if not replace.

Can you answer me a few questions?
Does the monitor show a picture at all?
When the PC starts normally, you get a single beep this, is to let you know that everything is okay. When does this continuous beeping start? at the same time as the single beep should or later? and does this continuous beep sound like the single beep?

You will have to go into the BIOS and select the hard drive on which windows is installed. The normal boot order would be CD/DVD ROM and then the Hard drive.
