A friends PC began running incredibly slow & warnings of low memory, virus scan negative, I suspected problem with cache memory, now doesnt boot and get quite long single beeps, nothing on screen, swapped memory sticks & Graphics card, checked all connections are ok, any views please.

Hi, long single beeps usually indicate Keyboard problem/s - can you try it with a different keyboard?

This is just one suggestion, no doubt others will come on with more suggestions.

Good luck ........ Cheers.

Yes, tried new keyboard (usb), still same, thanks for suggestion anyway.

I would say the graphics card as died, Try a spare card if you have one
