i got a new intel d865perl motherboard, and i've been struggling to install WinXP, i exchanged what turned out to be bad memory, now i can't even get the motherboard screen, just three long beeps. google search gives me a whole list of "keyboard error" or "keyboard card error". but i don't think so. help?

What does I don't think so mean? Have you swapped in a different keyboard just to make sure?

yes, reseated RAM, vid card, power connections on board and to wall, cmos battery, nothing changed this situation yet. what i'm wondering is, do i have a dead motherboard? although it came factory sealed, it is from newegg, not intel directly, so i hope not

3 beeps indicate a memory problem. What CPU and RAM are you using?

The board is capable of both single and dual channel operation, you could try each of the modules separately just to figure out if one is bad.
