I've taken out all the parts, tried a different PSU, and I'm quite certain it is the motherboard that's broken, but what I want to know is - I powered it up without the CPU and no beeps, put CPU back in and beeps again. Would this be normal behavior for it not to beep without CPU?
I'm just a tiny bit unsure, a new motherboard would be £100 so for it then to be the CPU would be quite annoying. It's either one or the other.
Just constant short beeps until switch off - this is with nothing but the CPU + Mobo powered.
Ok I took out the mobo, refitted the CPU, put in 1 stick of ram and it seems to post although the post beep is a strange combination of 2 beeps speaking over the top of one another making a not so healthy sound, but the constant beeps stop. I put in another stick of ram and it seems to be running and posting fine.
I've done this before and it didn't work then. Is there a specific combination that I didn't try or something?
