...... But they are 20 seconds apart.
I get the initial single beep, then it seems to be doing its thing then it waits 20 seconds beeps again then starts up.

Aren't the warning beeps together at the beginning?

This sounds more like a boot loop, which can have tons of different causes.

What happens on your monitor? Nothing at all? Do the fans spin at all? Maybe it could help to post a video of what happens exactly.

Ah, ok, thanks.
I shall make some notes on what actually happens and get back to you, busy few days ahead.
I am trying to remember when I noticed it. Could have been ages. But I suspect in the last month or two.
In the last month or two I have added ram and moved all my drives about.
As in I use Linux Mint as my main, with windows on a separate drive.
Windows WAS on my SSD so i did a few changes about and fresh installs.
I also did backups to HDD before I wiped them.

But earlier in the year, I changed most stuff.
Got a new Motherboard and cpu, psu, then a new case.... then bought an SSD, and moved over to Linux.

But I think it happened in the recent mucking about with the drive changes. Well, about that time, anyway.

Well, the fans start immediately.
The monitor remains with no signal.
Beeps once and zoostorm logo appears.
Then blank screen for 16-17 seconds.
Beep once.
Boots to desktop.

Only have the one drive plugged in. The SSD with Linux.
Tried unplugging the CD.

When I restart, the fans don't come to a stop which they used to.

I hope that it is ok to bump this one up?
I suspect the original title that just states two beeps gets glanced at and thought that it is just the motherboard code and kind of skipped over.
I have added to the title to make it more appropriate I hope.
