Long Continuous Beep on Boot

November 17, 2008 at 16:30:14
Specs: XP 32-bit, DDR3 1333

I just installed a new Motherboard and
processor today and the processor matches
the Motherboard fine.
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?
Item=N82E16813121348)

In any case, I booted up once with
everything installed, and heard 1 long
continuous beep when I did. So I unplugged
it and began dissecting it.

When I took out the video card, and only the
video card, I found that it didn't beep like
that on boot.

Does this mean I've got a faulty power
supply? Or maybe it's not enough power? It
is a 550W power supply
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?
Item=N82E16817182017) and it ran my previous
motherboard and Video card
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?
Item=N82E16814133193) without a problem.

I have a number of comments. First your links are not working. In the future go to the product page and then copy and paste the URL from the address box directly to this thread. That will turn it into a workable link that can be clicked on to take the reader to that product.

Second, I personally don't feel like clicking on many links to find your system specs. Just post the actual hardware.

Without knowing the motherboard model I couldn't comment for sure.

Did you connect a power connector to the Graphics card? Are you sure the card was fully seated? Sure the card is compatible with that MBoard?

You should always bench test a board BEFORE installing into the case.

Sorry about all that.

Thank you for the help! Actually I managed to
figure it out a couple minutes ago. The power
cord to the video card wasn't fully seated
each time. That's what was setting off the
whine.
