Ok, so last night I finished building my first pc apart from I was waiting on my HDD being delivered, it all powered on and worked fine except obviously I could only get as far as "insert boot" cd etc, it made one short beep to say the power was on every time I powered it on as normal.

Today my HDD arrived and I've connected it up, mobo sata > hdd and psu sata > hdd but now when I power it on it beeps until I turn the machine off as if it is saying there is a problem. The only other change is I have removed my SYS_FAN because I installed this lastnight from an old machine but it spins at 3000rpm and is very loud hence why I don't want to use it.

Could this noise be because I have no SYS_FAN connected or is the HDD faulty or do I simply need to edit something in the BIOS?

Cheers guys

You probably need to go into the BIOS and disable fan failure warning.

Thanks, wasn't sure. Didn't want to power it on again if there was a problem. Cheers very much.
