Hi:

 

If the PC is beeping 6 times, it means that there is a problem with the graphics adapter.

 

The specs for your PC indicate that it comes with the onboard AMD graphics adapter.

Did you add a video card to the PC between the time you bought it and now?

 

If you recently added a video card and the PC has only done this afterward, see this link for the resolution to the problem.
