OK , I have an ASUS CUSL2-C mobo , 256 MB stick Infineon , Retail Radeon 64MB VIVO . I just put the system together . I loaded W2K with no problems . I did this on a test bench I have set up . Satisfied it was ok , I moved the system to my desk and hooked it up . Now it's making the long , single beeps indicating a problem with the ram . I have tried re-seating the ram several times , tried several different sticks , with the same results . I'm not real sure what to try next . Any help would be greatly appreciated . :confused:

Depending on the BIOS, it could also be a video problem. Have you tried reseating the video card?

Good Luck

Just thought of another thing, since this started after you put it in the case, check to make sure the motherboard is not grounded on the case somewhere.

I don't have any other cards installed . All I did was load Win2K . I didn't even install vid card drivers .

Hey phil,
like someone else said,make sure it's not grounding out.Also have you tried just a single stick of ram??It's either video, ram or shorting out.Can you try another video card in it??
