I putting together a unit using all new components. When I boot up the first time, I am unable to get a screen on the monitor. What I’ve got installed so far is P3B-F MB/600E, 128 pc100 SDRAM DIMM,  HD, Cdrom, floppy, Matrox Milennium G400 AGP 16 MB single head, keyboard, mouse. I’ll install more components once I format the hard drive and install an operating system. All the led’s are lit. It seems that anytime I change out video card regardless it is AGP or PCI, I get the warning beep. As of right now I have the MB set up in the Jumper free mode, all the dip switches are set to OFF.
any ideas on how to trouble shoot this sucker?

Check your memory and make sure it is seated properly. !68 pin is easy to miss

Also have you tried a different video card then the Matrox??

I've check the memory in an other unit and I've tried another AGP and tried PCI video cards. I've disinstalled and installed the MB and all the components, checking each process as I go. And still the continously intermitten beep and no screen.

DOuble check the processor mounting to make sure it is seated but I would say you have a hardware failure if all is in properly
