    sounds like a heat issue, heatsink isnt on right, cpu is overheating

    are you getting anything on screen?

    may have to set up out of case, take mb out and place on a piece of cardboard, with cpu/hsf/ram and gfx card
    plug intp psu, plug psu into wall socket, board is live so be careful, touch the 2 pins that you had power switch connected to with the tip of a small screw driver to short them together, just for a second until mb starts up if you have no problem, get post beep and screen displays then you had a mounting issue

    ok 754 amd, those should be pretty easy, make sure you use thermal pad that came with cpu, or artic silver 5 paste, hook the metal hold down strap over tabs on socket and turn cam lever down, pretty simple

    may not be heat, bios beep codes are different, but you are having some problem, try the out of case thing then it can be whittled down from there.

    hey, just built one with an Epox MB, this is when I was testing to make sure, MB/CPU/HSF/RAM would boot, I dont build the whole thing and try because then you end up taking it all apart anyway if theres a problem, just the bare minimum, in fact most times you dont even need the gfx card in to get a post beep

    Hey,

    The specifications of his computer are as follows:

    AMD Athlon 2800+
    1Gb RAM (Pc2700)
    Radeon 9800 (Graphics)
    Foxconn Winfast 760GXK8MC (Motherboard)
    160 Gb Seagate ST3160811AS Barracuda
    300 Watt PSU

    Everything seems to be connected securely. When the computer is turned on, all lights / fans etc work but the bios beeps like: long beep (2-3 seconds), pause, long beep (2-3 seconds), pause. Continues to beep in this fashion until turned off.

    I have removed everything, one by one, just leaving the CPU in place and the beeps are the same.

    Any help?
