    I recently purchased a barebone kit with the power supply and motherboard/processor already included and installed. And I have a pretty good amount of knowledge on how to hook stuff up and about the guts of a computer. But after I finished hooking everything up, I go to turn it on and I get this REALLY loud, obnoxious beep from the tower speaker. I have no clue what could be wrong. I've come across this problem once before with a different computer, but that was years ago, and I don't remember how it got fixed. Can somebody give me some ideas as to what it could be? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Oh, and I had no idea where I should put this, so if it's in the wrong place, can a moderator move it for me to the correct location? Thanks!
