My daughters computer that I built just seems to shut down alot and the motherboard with Award BIOS gives me a series of alternating long beeps about 4 times then finishes shutting down. When I try to reboot it beeps immediately before getting to XP starting up and shuts back down. If I have it off for awhile it will work for about 2 minutes and do it again. I tried replacing the DDR ram thinking that was the culprit but no luck. Could it be the graphics card or the motherbaord it's only 4 months old Gigabyte GA-7VT600. Any help would be appreciated thank you..John
