Alarm going off after moving the all in one computer

HP Recommended
Desktop all in one
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

We moved and upon set up of the computer, upon powering up, there is an alarm that continues to sound.  Not sure what is going on.

Does it sound like beeping?

Does the noise come immediately at power-on, or later, while booting/using the computer?




1. one of the cooling fans has stopped working.  Maybe, its power-connector came loose from the motherboard.

Maybe, something is jammed in the fan-blades, to prevent it from spinning. So, without the cooling, the computer soon overheats, and a "shrieking" alarm sounds to notify you.


2. one of the sticks of RAM has become unseated.  Your computer will "beep", repeatedly, to indicate that it cannot access the RAM.


Either way, find either a friend who is good with All-In-One hardware, or a professional computer technician, to trouble-shoot.
