I am putting a fresh computer together for my self. Mostly from parts laying around in my workroom, nothing really modern, but not ancient either. With the basics together using an Intel® Desktop Board D945GCL, I fired it up and get 3 long beeps. No video or nothing. I used to know what the beeps mean, but old age is bad for memory. Can someone please tell me what to do next. Thank you, reb

3 beeps mean Memory error.
Reseat the memory to see if any difference. If no change-try with one stick of memory, then the other to determine which one is bad, or if both need replacing.
Make sure that the contacts on the memory and the socket are clean.
Try removing one bank of memory modules at a time. (Some systems can require a memory module in Bank 0.)
Try using memory modules from the same manufacturer with the same part number and speed.
Check for a faulty memory module by trying the memory in a known good system.
