Yesterday I was cleaning my computer like I have a million times before, removing the memory and graphics card and then replacing them.

But after replacing them, all I get when I try to turn it on is a constant beep from my motherboard.I am aware that it means that there is a memory or video card problem, but I am unsure what to do.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks.

Reinstall the cards. One of them probably isn't in the slot. In 15 years of using computers, I have never heard of anyone cleaning a PC that way.

The only way I can get assess to dust all of the motherboard is by removing the graphics card and memory...

I'll give it a go and update with what happens.

Thanks.

When I clean my computers I disassemble them and inspect everything as I clean each part and reassemble them. It would be hard to see the underside of, let alone clean the video card in my main system without taking it out.

I think it's a waste of time.

That's because you've been doing it for more than a decade and you're used to having a bunch of screws and crap to mess with. Todays computers come apart and go back together fairly quick with all of the quick-release parts and whatnot. :D

For tx, I agree with Don's advice. Chances are one or more of them didn't get put back in correctly. Addressing the cleaning thing, I never take anything out to clean it except for to perhaps remove a fan cover if there is one to get access to the CPU, specifically to avoid this exact issue.
