No make or model so GENERIC ADVICE.

If this was mine I'd open the case with the power off and gently push all the cards into their sockets and then same for cables.

Then I'd try again.

Count the number of beeps you hear. Such as one beep, one beep, one beep, or two beeps in a row, two beeps in a row, or whatever the pattern is.

Remember, we have IT computer experts here, so more information you provide about your system the better:

Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums--revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended." (see below the reply box you are typing in)

With the beep count we can point you to a fix or resolution.
