Hello, first time poster so be gentle
I just recently bought a new mobo, cpu and ps for my older home built rig.
Got it to post once, made it to the windows user id screen only to have the usb mouse not work (keyboard not working either). Mouse had power, so I unplugged it and put it in another usb port. Just as I did this, the system turned off.
I rebooted and cant get it to post anymore, and my Antec case speaker gives three loud beeps instantly after I power it on and repeats every 5 seconds or so.
I have stripped it down to nothing but the mobo, cpu/fan, and case connections and still get the error beeps. My mobo manual doesnt give any troubleshooting help for that error (or any error) and the website doesnt support non current mobo's. I am at a complete loss.
Specs and models of componants:
Soltek Top Mainboard, SL-KT880E
AMD Athlon XP 2200+ CPU
Windows XP Pro
IBM IDE HD
768 DDR (512,256)
GeForceTi 4400 AGP 128
Creative 512 sound
I sold my soul to my wife to do this upgrade, she will KILL ME if I cant get it running without spending more $$ to do it.
Please help me guys, I am at a total loss. I am really hoping I am missing something really simple. Let me know if you need more specs info. Thanks in advance
