AMD 6000+

ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe mobo

EVGA 8800GTS vcard

I just assembled the whole thing and whenever I try to boot up the screen is black and I hear a constant "beeep" sound (just one long beep that never stops).

What do I do?

I have heard of this happening. It means the video card has come loose or become bad. They say to:
1. Check that the video card is pushed in all the way, if pushed in then take out the video card and put it back in. (But have the computer off when doing this.)

2. Try a different card if wont work

3. Try a different monitor

Let me now if it works.

from looking at the motherboard specs you should have onboard video. have you tried removing the 8800GTS video card (and any other non-essential addon cards) from the pc then clearing the CMOS then just connecting your monitor to the onboard video and starting up? if not I'd give that a shot. also, make sure your power supply meets the minimum requirements for the 8800GTS video card. the requirements are Minimum of a 400 Watt power supply. (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 26 Amp Amps.) Make sure you your RAM is securely seated and is compatible with your mobo. hope this helps some.

good luck
