Angry Computer won't boot..again!!

ok, lets see....
I am fixing a pc for a friend of a, it won't boot at all. The guy is not real
computer smart, and could not tell me much about the pc. All this pc does
is run a program in a barn. I know the barn takes lots of wacks of lightning, so that was what I first thought (had to replace a hard drive because of lightning a year ago in one of the barns). When I booted it up it gave me long beeps.......beeeeeeep......beeeeeeeeep...You get the idea. So I thought that it was a memory problem, pulled the old memory out. Put in a working memory stick and ...taaaa daaaa!! the right beep sound happened, the fans did their spin, the lights all did their thing. here is the tricky just shuts down!! Never anything on the monitor at all. Now what is that ?? The pcu? Help !!
Thanks in advance
Jackie the smart blonde..(at least I like to think so)

You don't mention what kind of board it is that you are having problems with, but at a guess I'd say that you need to clear your CMOS.
