Thread: Beeeeeeeeeeep!!

    Default

    so have u got it so that there is enough for the system to boot? a "normal" PST usually reaps one single short beep

    if you have RAM, Video, CPU, Heatsink and Power applied to the mobo, all should be good, take all these items out - including the cpu, and reseat them, also hook the cpu fan up to external power only, so that there is nothing extra drawing power for the mobo aux power...

    if u still get beeps, sounds like u may wanna try another stick of ram, or cpu

    I have reseated everything several times - except the CPU, I just reseated that once.

    I guess I'll put the old CPU fan back on to see if that's what's causing it .

    If not then I guess I'm stuck buyin a new CPU or mobo

    Thanx for the help all

    hmm any way I could tell if I crushed the core? would it be visibly obvious?

    I did try booting with the RAM in slot 3, but not 2 yet. And did try 2 different sticks, one of them is brand new.

    A crushed core could just be having little chips taken out of the corners of the core to full on cracking. :smokin:

    ok here's a n00b question :D

    by the core you mean the center of the processor right?

    so I can get a magnifying glass and take a look...

    That's it but usually damage is evident to the naked eye. :thumb:

    bummers

    I don't see how I could have cracked it, I was much rougher when I put the first cpu fan on

    being the first time I had done it :D

    now it takes me a couple seconds to do ;)

    Actually damage to the core crossed my mind the other day - was (and still am) hoping that was not the case.

    I did get afraid though when you posted you had tried to boot without the HSF being hooked up though. (dude, that T-bird will melt down in heartbeat)

    well if u can't see anythin wrong wif the core, then i'd say try all components on another board :D if that works, get a new mobo/replacement
