He was playing a game with me online when he computer began to act funny, and the screen went blank and the computer began to beep loudly. I told him to unplug it for a few and plug it back in but no luck. His mom won't take it in to get fixed so he has to be himself. Any idea what went wrong? Its still beeping with a black screen.

Update 2: And is there any fixing it?
