AMD64 3400 CPU (Socket 754)
MSI K8T Neo-FIS2R
Ebuyer 1gb Value DDR Ram
ATi Radeon 9800XT
Maxtor 200GB HDD
Q-Tec 450W PSU
Ok, everything has been connected, when powered on everything comes on, graphics card, cpu, case fans, hdd. However I have a 'D-Bracket' and it hangs on the "Early Chipset Initialization" sequence, at the same time I get 3 short beeps from the motherboard. Nothing comes on the screen, but the graphics card keeps running, as does the hard disk drive.
I understand there could be many reasons, but any help will be appreciated, thanks
Edit: 3 beeps appear to be memory base error according to information on the MSI forums, could this cause the system to hang before POST and on "early chipset initialization"?
