loud beeps on startup and nothing else

Just put together a computer, loaded formatted the HDD, installed windows etc., and had everything running.

Opened it back up again to give it a clean with the compressed air and now, when I plug it back in and switch it on, nothing happens on screen and long loud beeps are coming from the tower.

Anyone any ideas what is causing it?

First guess you have disloged something like the video card. Worth unplugging the card and re-seating it fully. The same with all the data cables, at both ends.

The number and pattern of the bleeps is important, but the error code depends on the motherboard and BIOS. If you can identify these and search in Google for error codes......

The most probable cause is that either/both your memory or/and CPU are not seated firmly enough.

It turned out to be the CPU card - must have just knocked it when cleaning.
