The computer is unable to start up. Upon pressing the power button, it temporarily lits blue, followed by four short beeps, and the blue light fades away. Any help will be appreciated thank you!
I've tried looking online for Predator beep codes, and the closest I have found for 4 beeps is a "Motherboard Failure". Even the Predator service manual does not list 4 beeps!!
As your blue light fades away, I am wondering if you have a power supply problem. You could try swapping out the power supply with a similar wattage to see if it boots.
You can also try reseating components like the graphics card, RAM etc, or even clearing the BIOS settings just in case.
