First do you know hat bios you have? The beeps are a way the bios has of telling you where to look. What is the beep code it is giving. (ie. 1 long 2 short)? If we know the bios and code it is giving it would help greatly.

Hi, what did you just install? Win2k or a 2.0Ghz cpu? A TV tuner card or a video card?
If you put in a 2.0Ghz cpu then maybe your m/board will not accept that speed, or jumpers have to be set to accept it. Beeps usually mean something has been replaced wrongly or not seating properly.

Yup, the beeps are not a nice sound, are they coming from the m/b speaker/beeper, are they regular morse code type? How about checking a m/b site that gives the beep codes and the probable faults linked to various beep messages.

The BIOS beeps were 1 long 2 short. which according to the BIOS beep tables " http://support.iwill.net/beep.htm " was to do with the "Display card or monitor connected error".

Thanks guys I tried my monitor on another comp no probs, then took out my AGP vid card and put back in, still beeped, then held the monitor cable into the socket as I rebooted, and finally after trying a few boots and different angles the damned thing workd.

Unfortunately must be bad connection.

Much appriciated. ;)
