Hello Cris mate sorry you had to wait this long but the first beep you speak of is usually the RAM beep and it is usually just one. Now there is a beep code for a few things. Find out what BIOS you have and look at these to find the beep codes for your machine.

My guess is either the PSU is bad or the GPU is or has failed - shame we didn't have any dump files to work with .
But you can use this little ditty of mine to check out the PSU voltage rails.


Test the sockets and leads with a digital multimeterNOT an analogue one because an analogue one injects 9v into a circuitwhich I am sure will know will do no good the board!!

Something like this is ideal

Anothergood ref

Plus when testing place the blacklead to the case or one of the board fixing screws try not to use the blacks inthe 24 socket - you can but the other site are for more reliable forpreciseness. In fact you can get crocodile clips to fit the black probe toattach and forget leaving one hand free

Now you have to remember of coursecorrect volts does not always mean correct current.

Think of it as a car with a flatbattery it may test perfect at 12 - 13v but try and crank the engine it may dothat but leave no available current for the ignition and other essentialcircuits.

To test though you will need afairly good ammeter and run a known current draw though it however these areusually expensive pieces of equipment and is not really THAT necessary. .

Use this for volts refs and theyneed to be within 5% of the stated voltage - see text in this,3061-2.html

You seem to have both an integrated GPU (Intel) and a discreet one (GTS450) in System Specs. Try removing the GTS450 and changing to the other one.

Also try a CMOS reset (check motherboard manual how to CMOS reset).

Hmm good tip and if you want to adjust the Intel graphics just ask.
