    no problem, I just wish i could give you a simple answer to solve this

    try to swap out the PSU for a different one, even if you have to borrow one from another working computer

    if the computer you're making these posts with isn't a laptop, then perhaps you could strip the psu from it just long enough to see if your PSU is the culprit

    you can also check the voltages if you have a multimeter available

    ok its not a lap top


    the only working pc is this one and its and old atx with 125watts max. i have not got a multimeter available at this time

    would it be safe enough to plug this old boilller of a psu
    in as its my only means of getting on the net looking for help
    and 125 watts max

    no, if it's 125w you should just leave it where it is

    unless you have a mulitmeter or a spare PSU I can't really think of another way to test your PSU

    hopefully someone else will see this and think of something else...at this point, if it's not the PSU or a bad Mother Board I don't know what it would be

    Try removing everything form the system including the mobo and PSU. Take everything off the mobo and remove it from the case. Remove all the PCI cards, IDE drives, video, RAM and leave only the CPU with heatsink attached, and plug in the PSU. Does this give u any beeping?

    If not, then remove your Heatsink and try re-seating the CPU, then replace the Heatsink and do this all over again. Make sure the fan for the heatsink is plugged in as well.

    If it does, then plug in components startion with the RAM, then Video to see if the beeping stops and if the unit will post.

    If there are no components plugged into the mobo with the exception of the CPU then u should be getting a bunch of anoying beeps telling you something is screwed.
