Hi i have an Asus P4B-M Motherboard
iam using the Pentium 4 P4 CPU 2.60Ghz 512/400 Northwood 2.6 SL6PP.
i have another CPU which i tried as well.. the 2.0 GHZ 512 Northwood

The problem is.. i installed the CPU, RAM, Videocard, Harddrive.. plugged in all the necessary cables.
When i turn the computer on, i get repetitive long beeps.

anyone know what the problem might be... i have tried both CPUS.

Well, according to your manual, Long beeps in a endless loop mean no DRAM was installed or detected.

What type of RAM are you using? The manual states that you can use PC100/133 so if you are using the wrong RAM it's not going to work.

That's what it means by continous loop, the beeps are long, and repeat over and over. I doubt it's your cpu. You may want to try your RAM in a different port, but I want to make sure you have the right type.

That is a supported type. Do you have any other sticks that you can try? You may have a bad stick. You can also try putting it in another slot, but from what you say this looks like a RAM problem.
