My computer won’t boot

HP Recommended
P7-1219
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Help please - PC will not start up.  It beeps 5 times pauses a couple of seconds and then beeps another 5 times.  Total beeps is 25 times.   (5 beeps, pauses, another 5 beeps, pauses, another 5 beeps, pauses,  another 5 beeps, pauses, another 5 beeps.   Screen is blank, no messages, only beeps.  I tried reseating the memory but it felt like the locking mechanism wasn’t stable and when I tried to reboot it it had the same error code as before. 
I don’t know if I reseated the memory wrong or if it is something else.

Hi,

 

Five beeps suggests a possible RAM problem or a system board problem.

 

Try one stick of memory in each memory slot. Try a different, known good, stick of memory in each slot.

 

Try compressed air on the memory slots. Let the MB sit for a while after using compressed air.

 

Could be a MB problem if the PC cannot POST.

 

Regards
