After checking memory was seated properly and motherboard and DVD/CD drives were secure (as Ive been having intermittent boot up problems) I treid to start PC again and its giving a intermittent beep and both drives DVD and CD are showing green lights. The PC does not boot and the beep continues.

Unplug data cables from CD /DVD drives and retry

Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\ Tried that no joy..... I then left each drive unplugged in turn to see if that helped also buy it didn't, I think Ive made the problem worse lol

Thanks Seems as though the prob was with the memory I removed and replaced and it OK now

Posting back here as I have another problem with the same PC, the day after doing the move/reseat memory I switched on the PC and left the room for 10 min, when I returned the PC was totally dead, no sound no life at all. I have just about given up on this PC and was going to give it to someone who might use it for spares, but would appreciate thoughts on what might be the problem here.

A few more details perhaps, have you tried restarting,if so what was the result, beeps lights,fans turning etc?

I would say the PSU as gone or on its way out, if it was dead when you came back, its probably gone, and may have taken other hardware with it

gengiscant I tried to start it and there was nothing, no light no sound, no fans.

If this is the case then will it pointless passing it on to someone who may use parts? It was expensive about 12 hundred pounds but that was 5/6 years ago

May be still some good parts in it

I would be inclined to fit a new PSU.

Does the motherboard light (inside) come on, if not, have you checked the fuse in the 3 pin plug into the mains wall socket?
