Hi,

My computer has been through a lot, and currently has a broken screen with an external output. This problem has been existent before, but with 3 beeps. Basically, my computer is weirdly extremely slow, and freezes up from time to time. During some of these lock ups, it makes either 3 beeps or 5 beeps. These beeps are actually on the computer, not coming from it. I am thinking of upgrading my setup, but is this anything serious?

For AMI-family BIOS, 3 beeps is RAM failure, 5 beeps is CPU failure.

Try re-seating your DIMMs and CPU to clear a possible bad electrical contact and clear CMOS in case you moved something from default that might be causing issues.
