    Tried building my own PC, much more of an experienced software guy than hardware, and as I expected, I screwed it up.

    I'm trying to run:
    Intel D875PBZ Motherboard
    Intel 3.2 GHz Pentium IV
    2xKingston 512mb PC3200 DDR
    GeForce 5200 128MB

    I've also scavenged two hard drives from my old computer, but I have no idea what they are.

    Here's my problem: I get 3 long beeps at startup but nothing on the monitor, it reads from the hard drive for a bit, then nothing until I turn it off. I've tried reseating the RAM as I read that's what the beep code could mean. Any suggestions on what to do next?

    For the beep codes you need to look at your MB docs or visit the website of the manufacturer. beep codes tell a story you just need to know where the book is
