Will a system run BIOS without ram?
I am in the process of purchasing a new computer. I currently have the case, motherboard (ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe), P4 2.8Ghz 800mhz FSB, Video Card (GeForce FX 5700), No RAM, No HDDs, No FDs and a PSU. With these components I would like to check to make sure my current equipment is actually working, i.e. the CPU. When I hook it all up and turn on the system, with the video card installed, I get the audio POST beeps (1 long, 2 short) indicating video failure. I am wondering if this is because I do not have the ram installed yet? The video card is supported by the motherboard which uses 1.5v AGP 3.0 so I don't know why it's not working. Any help will be greatly appriciated, thanks in advance!
