I bought / stripped several parts from various places to build my own system. The motherboard I got i believe is this one...
So today I got a 423 socket p4 1.5ghz processor and popped it in, and booted the machine with the PS, AGP video, 1 stick of DIMM ... And i got 3 beeps ...
I looked it up, and it meant that I had a ram problem so i popped it out and got the same 3 beeps.
Then I swapped it out for a stick of DDR that i had... ( apparently the board can support both, but not at the same time) and I got no beeps, no video. I thought maybe it was working and it was looking for a pci video card instead of an AGP, swapped the AGP for a PCI, no beeps no video.
Here's where i think i might have screwed things up. I then tried clearing the cmos with the jumper while the board was still on and once I jumped the cmos reset the board powered down, then I put it back to normal and the board powered up again, but now I can't get the board to beep again when i remove all the ram or put the DIMM back in.
Did I fry the bios ? Any suggestions / help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
