had a cpu and motherboard bundle delivered today.
put it all together, hit the power button and the fan powers up.
i hear a single beep, but nothing on the monitor. the graphics card is agp and was working in this tower before. as was the hdd.
any ideas?

check the manual or the mobo manufacturers website for the beep codes.
It makes a beep so something might be wrong, and the amount of beeps should tell u what it is.
But I don't remember them, and there might be different meanings depending on the manufacturer. So u just have to search.

here is another thing!
it will only fire up if i remove the cmos jumper, or if i put it in the cmos clear position!!
if it is in the default position, it wont even turn the fan!

Erm last time i Heard this it was my ram, it was incompitable like others said google and read your manual closely. Beeps mean different things and they all important.
