Is my computer bipolar?

So for starters, I have a Cybetron Sokom-i I got from amazon 5 years ago. It's still stock, aside from a new power supply and additional hard drives.

It's been a great pc for having had it 5 years. I don't actually know the part models, except the motherboard is some kind of gigabyte motherboard with dual bios.

 

Lately, I get beeps when coming out of hibernation. Well to clarify, I sometimes get beeps, but it's really like half and half that I either do or don't.

What throws me off is that I'll get (AMI) :

2 short, 3 short, 5 short, 6 short, 8 short, 10 short, 11 short, and 1 long 3 short, or combinations of any of them, but then the peculiar part is that a lot of times I get nothing besides the 1 beep that I always get when it loads up.

 

It's like my computer doesn't know whether or not it wants to die.

 

What's wrong with it? I googled the beep codes but I'll be darned if I understand any of it except the 5 beeps one indicating processor failure.

Do I just need to get a new computer? I was planning on it anyway but if there's anything I can do to fix this one cheaper, I'd like to.

Wait....people still hibernate instead of just....shutting the system down?

you clearly don't do much with the pc. if i restart i lose all my saved tabs (they need to reload instead of staying open), all my startup apps relaunch so it takes forever to boot, all my window placement is gone, my virtual desktops reset sometimes, like, hibernate is so much more convenient than restarting. i only reboot if i have to (Windows Update).

LOL.  I clearly don't do much with the PC....

Lovely assumption there.

 

There are are apps for saving window placement, and if you can't find one to your liking it isn't that difficult to write your own code for one.

Saved tabs/programs being open that are not being used are just resource hogs.

 

I mainly use my system for 3D design, CAD work, rendering, 3D printing, gaming, and working on coursework (Information security and assurance)
