    This is what I get for being nice to my puter and installing 4 fans :D

    when I turn on the power all I get is 1 long beep, over and over.

    I have replaced the RAM and tried 3 different video cards, 2 AGP and 1 PCI.

    No matter what I do I still just get that beep. I tried taking the RAM and Vid card out. Beep. Tried with RAM in and no vid card, same beep. Tried with Vid card in and no RAM, same beep.

    Only thing left I can think of is to clear the CMOS. Any other ideas on how to fix this :?:

    Well I see you've tried it but, long beeps mean the RAM is loose...

    That's what I was thinking, but I've reseated the RAM about 5 times to make sure it's in good.

    I even took the one I had back to fry's and got a replacement, just in case I somehow fried it.

    I wonder if I somehow fried my first DIMM slot :?:

    if so is there a way to force it to ignore slot 1 and look at slot 2?

    Are you sure you dont have the FSB set to high? maybe you have the bios set to aggresive for the ram chip?

    Just a few thoughts

    I haven't tweaked my FSB or anything yet

    I did run some tests awhile back and it did say that my chipset can't handle the 266 FSB. I ignored it cause I don't see why the hell they'd put a chipset on a mobo that can't handle the FSB the mobo is supposed to have.

    Guess I'll reset the cmos and hope for the best.

    So ya added 4 new fans to the system? have you disconnected them and tried again? it could be that the fans are suckin' to much power from the PSU and not allowin' enough for the memory. :?:
