Hello all.. I have strange situation! My PC sometimes don't start and I don't know why.. Here's some information what it does.
1) It's not starting if I'm not smashing it (beating some parts of computer I don't know why) and it loads up fine.
2) After restart, it still need to do same, otherwise it don't starts still.
3) Strange is that, when PC is starting, it beeps and when not, it's not beeping.

Is that BIOS problem ?
Thanks!

The beep sound in lot of motherboards is an indicator, 1 beep ok (in my intel motherboard).
And then, there are a lot of beep codes like morse codes for some errors.

if it does not play any sound, what could you try is to clean the dust in the memory slots, some conectors and others, it should help a lot.

check the main power suply cable is good conected (the cable thet comes from the main power source and conects to the motherboard with if I remember well 10 pin conector very huge)

Perhaps too much dust all over the expansion cards' pins and/or some components/connectors not firmly secured into the slots/sockets. This may especially be the case for a rather old machine as the heat eventually deforms the PCB.
