Hello. Please create a signature so we can see your current hardware. Which fan is it? Have you tried removing and replugging the connection? Stock fan?

Very detailed.

How about the model of the computer? Is it a custom rig? Specs? A little more (actually a lot more) detail is needed.

Have you tried checking the manual for your computer to see what the beeps mean?

If the series of beeps continue after each time after doing the following, the mobo has kicked the bucket :cry: (applies to the 630i stock mobo)

    1. Reset your CMOS on the mobo (see manual for location)...then power on.

    2. Remove & replace the memory and the GPU and any other hardware connected to the mobo...then power on.

    3. Unplug the 24-pin & 8-pin cable from the motherboard & unplug from the wall outlet for few minutes then plug back...then power on.

This is exactly what had happen to my stock 630i mobo a few years ago.

Four beeps indicates either a motherboard or memory problem on the XPS 630.

You need to try and remove all the memory and only use one stick at a time, testing each one seperately in the black slot closest to the CPU heatsink. You may have a couple faulty sticks of memory. Test each one and see which are faulty (if any).

If all the RAM is not working seperately, your board is probably toast, but I would still recommend getting a new set of memory for testing purposes to ensure all your original sticks were not all bad.
