Well, I just got a new MB (Motherboard) and Vid card, havnt even tried messing with the Vid card since i want to get my new MB inplace of my old first, a Vid card im able to deal with without any trouble.

Now when i swap them out, my new MB will not fully post when turn'd on... everything does have power and i get a BIOS alarm error of one long high beep for one second, then a second long low beep, non stop in a endless loop. At witch time everything stops and just shuts down.

At first i thought one of my DDR RAM sticks may have been damaged, i changed back to my old borad, and everything workd perfectly :tazz:...

Now the MB manual says its a DRAM error, and that none is installd or detect'd (RAM i am using is that of a 128 and 256mb, 2 sticks, DDR 184pin 266mhz) The new MB can be setup for any of 100, 133 (Default) or 166mhz bus speed. Tried all 3 of these settings, since this could be the issue, same error happends for all 3...

After all of this i tried clearing the CMOS, also no such luck there... :help:

Has anyone had this problem before, or have away to resolve this at all? ;)

When powering up my computer, I hear weird beeps?
Solution for Socket A Boards: Refer to beep code table below.

This is the bit that applies

High/ Low beep CPU overheat
Check CPU fan is connected correctly
CPU fan needs to be replaced
CPU is overheating due to bad CPU

Add a couple more potentials to Keith's list - poor application of thermal paste to processor, CPU fan on wrong mobo fan header.
