i just installed a new power source on my gen 1 p4 computer. when i start it up, i hear the harddrive kick in, but it never starts the keyboard, mouse or moniter. on several occassions it just beeped rapidly. i removed the PS to put in my main computer, and it has been sitting without for a coupel months. what can i do to fix it? could the PS be the sole reson for the problem? it went from a 680w to a 530w.
Did you plug in the 4 pin CPU power connector to the motherboard? Constant beep indicates CPU failure!
yes, i plugged in the motherboard, the wireless card turns on as i can see the light blinking, i got the beeping to stop after i unplugged a dead fan that was precariously positioned behind a solid case... it just will not recognize any of the periphrials.
