Hi there. I bought a 2nd hand processor and mainboard for my friend. The main board is Abit AN7 Socket A Motherboard.
Spec: http://www.abit-usa.com/products/mb/produc...ies=1&model=158
The processor is AMD Athlon 1800. I using 256MB PC2700 with it. I tried it with one 230W power supply, the cooler on then off. I tried with second power suppy. It's working and spinning. But i can hear long beep sound for about 3 second. Then continue. All cooler are running. All the jumper are set. CMOS cleared. The seller said it is the memory problem. I tried it very tight and used slot 1 and 2 before. It had 3 slot. Should I change it? I have no idea.... I need this to be solve in 12 hours. I am just helping a friend but i do need help now...

Long beep is usally non functioning video card sop could be card or needed reseating or if onboard may not be functioning...it can also be ram but more likely 3 long beeps.

175 watts may be adequate for normal usage, but do you know that the power supplies that you used actually produce this much. The ratings on them are not necessarily accurate when new, and more likely not accurate when used for any length of time. I don't know if you found the two small windows at the bottom, which allows you to set values for power fluctuations and age.
