    Hi

    All of the above codes point to a bad IC
    2 short Memory parity error [A memory parity error has occurred in the first 64K of RAM. The RAM IC is probably bad]
    3 short Base 64K memory failure [A memory failure has occurred in the first 64K of RAM. The RAM IC is probably bad]
    4 short System timer failure [The system clock/timer IC has failed or there is a memory error in the first bank of memory]
    Source - here

    have swapped out RAM to check? [If have spare stick of RAM to test or borrow one from a friend if possible]

    Is this a system that sat for a while without being used or having power connected to it?

    This might sound stupid but it's easy to rule out, try turning it on but first unplug the keyboard and mouse. If that doesn't work unplug and reconnect all you cables from the motherboard. Dont connect case fans and optical drives just whats necessary like the 24 pin the 8 or 4 pin for the CPU the hard drive sata cable. I guess the audio and front panel you don't have to unplug

    I had a system that would boot-cycle because of a shorted USB port. Maybe time to take this naked and start from there.
