comment Test for bad Motherboard VS bad CPU
Turns out it was the motherboard - (trivial after-story) the chick didn't believe me (even though I got a $65 quote for a decent intel replacement board) and she took it to a shop... $285 later they said it was the mobo and replaced it. Good call techie007, you were dead on.

Well there's another similar HP machine that is AMD drat (for swapping parts I mean), that doesn't beep when it boots even though it comes on fine... Still, I would have expected some complaining without RAM and it was quiet. I'll see about a mobo, see what I can come up with. Thanks for your all guys help!

I don't see another four prong on the power supply - I'm hearing there were no hardware changes, would it boot with those pins empty?
