When i go to turn my vaio VGC-rc102 tower on,it bleeps approx 3 times and turns off.However power is still getting to the tower as I can here it running.Obviously when this happens,windows xp fails to start,and nothing appears on my monitor.? Any suggestions as to the possible cause of the problem? Thankyou
