New Upgrade (Board & CPU) Everything Plugged In But One Problem. Please Help!
To start off, Ive already have built computers before so Im know what Im doing, so all of this is nothing new to me. However, I have finally upgraded, I have a 3.2Ghz Pentium 4 HT Chip with a ECS Elitegroup 848P-A motherboard.
Ive put everything together, however, I run into one problem and its starting to frustrate me and I have no idea at all now. Ive followed the directions in the motherboard book several times but I dont think thats the problem. When I turn it on, no display comes up, and its starts beeping. I know this usually means Im missing something, like no RAM or something, but I double checked everything. Even made sure the chip was inserted correctly and it was.
The beep is different from ones I have heard before. It lasts for an entire 6 or 7 seconds (I counted), then stops, and starts again. Ive tried re-connecting everything, trying a different video card, moving the RAM into a different slot, etc, and I still run into the same problem.
Does anyone know what this beep pattern means so I we can get a better understanding of the problem and see If Im able to fix it, whatever it is lol.
The motherboard book does not come with any type of troubleshooting, already looked.
Thanks Everyone, cant wait to get my new fast computer working! Ive been stuck on a 1.4ghz AMD for quite some time. If you need any other information, feel free to request it.
Thanks for your help,
