I have a soyo dragon + motherboard in my pc case
I have all the IDE devices and AGP Graphics and DDR memory connected to it but i dont have a monitor or a OS but decided to power up my system to see what it does.
It gives one Beep can any one tell what does this mean.
I had the same problem tonight building my system. One long beep means the memory is not seated right. you can check out the soyo support beep stuff here http://www.soyousa.com/faqs_beeps.html I just pulled this 256M of crucial ddr ram PC2100 from my old system where it worked fine. I tried the ram in all three dimm slots multiple times but still nothing. I am not sure what to do now. maybe a bad board? Maybe the memory got screwed up in the transfer? Anyone else got any ideas?
With some new systems, I have found that if a monitor is not connected to the video card, it gives an error beep. On a more positive note, all systems beep at least once during their startup, so it could just be a normal boot.

I have the same problem. A series of long beeps within a given interval. I also didn't get any video. I checked the soyo.com site and it recommends clearing the CMOS for at least 5 seconds but moving the cap to pin 2 and 3. Afterward, move the cap back to pin 1 and 2. I haven't try it yet. I hope this will clear the issue. Let me know.
