I really dont know if its a hardware or a software problem but it seems to me that it may be a hardware problem... so here it goes.
 I got an IBM Intellistation E Pro computer loaded with windows nt. It was given to me by a friend so excuse me if I may not be able to fill in all the details. I hooked it up and it ran fine. It looked like someone redid the windows in it so there werent any other files loaded into it except for windows nt. I turned it off and switched monitors because the one they gave me sucked lol. I hooked it up and turned it on and it wouldnt boot. I hooked the original monitor back up to it and still it wouldnt boot up. It turns on and it sounds like its booting (the monitor shows nothing) and i hear 2 beeps and it just stays there. I was thinking it may be the power supply but dont have one just like it to check it and need to know before purchasing one as they are kind of expensive on my small budget.Just want to know what you think... do you think it may be the power supply too? or.... maybe something else. remember it worked great when i first turned it on. ty wildcherrys

Can you post what type of BIOS you're running. I can't tell you what the beeps mean until I know what kind of BIOS you have.
