hello, I just built a new system
pentium duo core E2140
cooler master case centurion with 350 w psu
cooler master hypertx cooler
hp 5300 1 g ddr2
bfg pcexpress 128 mb vid card
I followed the instruction by the mobo guide
When I start the computer for the first time, it powers up
then it shuts itself down for 3 sec
then it restarts by itself and then make beeping noise like some kind of alarm
i turned off the system
I double check to make sure the hypertx cooler is tightly latched on, and it is.
i turn it on again, and the same beeping noise persist.
yes, i have reset my cmos
yes, hp memory from slick
3d fuzion geforce 6200 le pci express
the beep was continuous, a short 2 notes pitch, one low, one high
i plug in every power cable i could see
was following the instruction from the mobo book to the t
mobo book did not mention what wattage psu i could use, i checked
i did use the 24 pin mobo power cable
I think for my mobo at leasts, if you get beeps every 2-3 seconds at intervals, that means ram. So start by reseating the ram, make sure you have it pushed down firmly in the slot, and that it has locked into place. If it persists after that, check your power connections and make sure the video card is firmly seated.
