I power up fans kick in led lights lite up the monitor doesent go on and there is a beeping noise like a truck backing up.
i pop in the cd that came with the mobo hit reset and monitor kicks in there was some settings options i selected to skip and exit.
now comes a prompt for the boot disk now im not sure what this is all i have is the mobo cd and a win xp cd not even a flopy drive so i pop in the win xp cd nothing hapens.
Im prety sure the beeping never stoped the whole time i put the mobo cd back in turn the pc back on and it happened the power flickered on for a sec and off it goes no fans no lights nothing.
now whenever i turn it on it spins on and off then nothing unless i unplug then plucg back and still it only powers on for a sec then its off the light on the mobo is on whenever there is power bot nothing else i realy hope i didnt kill the pc already.
I unpluged the case fans all other parts other than the power, monitor, vid card, cpu, mobo and mem still same, realy worried now hopefully someone can shed some light on this situation.
I moved the core parts to a new box i had laying around 550W power suply 100 more than the other one and its powering up all the fans are working inclooding the video card fan, though the monitor isnt going on. also getting 3 beeps one long and 2 short beeps.
