    I have built around 10 computers from ordering parts at newegg, as well as, I do some simple repair and help desk at UCD. This is the first time I have ever had a problem hooking up the Chasis cables to the motherboard.

    My beepcode is 1 long repeating beep.

    I have hooked up my Power Switch, Reset Switch, HD LED, but for some reason my POWER LED has a connection for 3 jumpers, instead of 2 like the rest. The connection is White Wire, Nothing, Greeen Wire. If i try connecting it, one of the wires doesnt touch the correct jumper.


    Am I over looking something? Should I try removing one of the wires and putting it in the one that is empty? Can I get one of the 2 slot connections?

    I tried booting it with only 1 of the wires making a connection, but the computer doesn't even boot. The CPU fan kicks on and it starts beeping.

    Thanks for the help,
    Hans

    the computer will boot without the led connected...... your problem is elsewhere.....look at the memory compatibility

    Here is the hardware I used.

    Mobo
    http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16813135202

    CPU
    http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16819116004

    RAM
    http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16820211061

    I think the mobo is running AWARD bios, as you posted. I am getting a long repeating beep (about 3 seconds).


    I tried rotating out my RAM, which didn't fix the problem.
    My CPU fan does turn on and spin while it is beeping. After reading the bios link you sent me, I have narrowed down my error to these options.

    Continuous beeping, each lasting about three seconds. The beeping does not stop. Seems to be CPU related. Submitted by baders.

    Repeating (endless loop) Memory error Check for improperly seated or missing memory.

    Award BIOS 6.00PG/Asus P4T-E: 4 long beeps when turning on your system might indicate yout CPU fan is either damaged ot running to slow. Check your CPU fan. Clean or replace it with a new one.

    I'm going to Fry's to get some parts to test out what might be wrong with it. I was going to try to get a new MOBO, and see if that fixes the problem.

    Now that I have read your link, maybe I should try buying another LGA 775 fan and connecting it. It seems as though the fan is spinning and working properly though.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the help,
    Hans
