I ordered a new mobo, ram, power supply, CPU, R8500, Sound Card, and CPU cooler.
I received everthing but the cooler and the R8500 which came aday later.
Being impatient, I stuck a coolermaster HSF I had used on my tbird 1.4 for a while on the new 1600+. This booted up great... Nice temps, and all.
Today, I popped the new CPU cooler on, and slid the R8500 in, booted up, all the fans on high. But then I hear a long beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep ... beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep coming from my Shuttle AK31a... I couldn't firgure it out... So I put my old Voodoo3 in that worked before with the old Coolermaster, and I get the same beeps.
I tried the CPU on my A7v 133 and it worked fine.
NO CLUE HERE?!
Maybe the RAM went bad while swapping the video card an cooler.
Maybe my AGP slot when bad
Maybe the motherboard went bad
I need some input... and help!
