    Hello mkhalidmn,

    Welcome to Forums!

    Check all connections and make sure that they are all tight. Check the keyboard for any keys that might be stuck.

    Hello mkhalidmn

    When this happens to me [as it does now and again] I unplug my PS2 mouse from the socket at the back of the PC and plug it back in and the PC gives a single beep when I do this.
    I then press/release the reset switch and it boots ok.

    Is this a newer system or one that has been around and seen a lot of use? If it is a well used system, the contacts may simply be dirty. You can clean them by blowing them out or by using an alcohol swab (preferably about 90%) when they are not powered in any way. If it is a newer system, see comments above.
