i recently recieved an older gigabyte GA-6BXC with a celron 400 in a slot adapter. well i tried to power it on and it wouldn't. moved the cmos jumper and tried again, now when i post it i get a beep code, 1-long 3-short, and the system freezes. it has a trident 8 or 16 MB AGP video card and 64MB ram. anybody have any idea as to what that beep code could mean.

Well 1 long and 2 short is video for Award.

1 long and 3 short is video for AMI.

GA-6BXC is Award.

So I'm guessing, but I'd say video or RAM. Re-seat or swap to test.

The beep codes will more than likely be explained in either the mother board manual or the manufaturers web site. They will refer to them as Post codes

sounds like a dead/"not fully inserted" video card to me...
in other words...check your video may be dead or isnt pushed all the way into the AGP port.
