I get that, and if I press F1 to continue, it goes into the check to make sure there are no bootable CD roms, Floppies, ect. After a few minutes, it'll just shut off. Also, in BIOS, it shows that it doesn't read my harddrive at all, and the harddrive has been tested in another computer and it shows that it works fine in that other machine. Finally, when I change something in the Setup (BIOS) menu, it won't save, or when it does save it will start making siren-ish noises until I reset the CMOS.
So far, I've tried resetting the CMOS, removing the battery to CMOS, replacing the battery to CMOS, running with just the basic needed hardware, different types of keyboards 'n mice, and with/without the stick of RAM. Any help with this problem would be much thanked.
