Abit IP35-E question. IDE connections?
So I just bought this new system and put it together last night:
Intel Core2Duo E6600 (2.4ghz@1066)
Corsair Twin2x2048-6400 DDR2 800MHz
GeForce 7900GS 256MB DDR3
Antec 500W Earthwatts
Asus Silent Knight heatsink
So I get this beeping noise that just keeps beeping and my computer boots up, reboots once, and then sits at the "PRESS TAB TO SHOW POST" & "PRESS DEL TO ENTER SETUP" screen. I took one stick of RAM out and now it just keeps on rebooting over and over.
What causes this? I'm thinking the IDE cable?
I have only 1 IDE connection on this motherboard and I've never had a mobo with just one IDE connection. I'm used to having one cable for my CD-ROMs, and one cable for my HDs. So I threw my HD on the master, and CD-ROM on the slave and set the jumpers accordingly. That's what you're supposed to do, correct? I'm also using my old rounded IDE cables, instead of the ones they gave me in the box. Is this a factor possibly?
Thanks for the help!
