Before I go through all that I'd like to make double sure that it's the board, which means I have to test the power supply and CPU as well as memory. The easiest and cheapest one is the Ram, so try a new stick. And thanks for the invite to Teckspot, I'm sure you'll see me around here.

I'm sure the CPU is properly seated, it dropped right in without incident. I'm sure the CPU is properly seated, it dropped right in without incident.

It simply doesn't go in as easily as other memory that I have installed previously, and the connectors don't quite go in as far on the center as they do on ok. I'll try again later today after I pick up the monitor and report back. Check in bios and see what temps you're getting and if the beeping corresponds with temps.
I don't like the sound of the stick being bowed.

This is in addition to the other fine suggestions. Watch this when you hit the power for the first time to make sure it works.

I've tried switching power supplies, processors, clearing the cmos, switching the backup battery, and running the system on its basic system, cpu, ram, and vid card yet im still getting nothing In my completely, newbie, know nothing opinion, that fit is where the CPU contacts the thermocouple about .25 to .5 mm out of the socket and you must push down on Mine was tough as nails. If the new stick of Ram solves the problem, you can return the bowed stick to Crucial and get your money back.
At first I thought that the memory was bad, but I switched them both in and out of the first slot and the computer worked fine with either of them, but All we get is one long repeatitive beep, and I hear some hard drive noise. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? It simply doesn't go in as easily as other memory that I have installed previously, and the connectors don't quite go in as far on the center as they do on
I had to bend the thermocouple and I did so with no instruction, as the manual had no detail and I had never heard of this before. This would be fine if I knew what the heck it meant. mike breck, Oct 12, 2001 #13 spork891 Joined: Oct 7, 2001 Messages: 141 Location: Napa California All fans are running normally, board is recieving power so far as I can tell. this content powerless 13:20 10 Mar 03 Your motherboard is?Make sure you RAM is in the first slot.

Guessing its the motherboard though because i already tried moving the ram to different slots w/ new ram that hasnt been used and the old stuff. Usually a continous beep is the memory and one long and two or three short is the video card. From the factory, there was no way I could have set the CPU without bending this thermocouple. The connectors fit more deeply into the edges of the socket than in the center.
Make sure it is fit perfectly to the bottom of the CPU. Also, check to ensure the monitor cable is connected properly. spork891, Oct 11, 2001 #5 mike breck Joined: Oct 28, 2000 Messages: 4,700 Location: Scotland I don't think so. http://wphomeguide.com/need-help/need-help-with-raid-0.php mark ------------------ 6 machines on a netgear 7 port router amd 1800 visiontec geforce 3ti500 soundblaster audigy abit kg7-raid 512 ddr 1gig duron morgan abit kg7 raid geforce 3 ti200 soundblaster

After all, after some more research, it was a RAM error code, like I said, a single long repetative tone. If this is your first visit, be sure to check out the FAQ by clicking the link above.
