  1. Hi
    Ive installed a new asus p5vcd-mx motherboard with pentium 4 dual core 5.6ghz processor and just 1gb ddr ram and the moment. but when i turn on the computer i get blank screen and 1 beep and about 1 second later 2 more beeps.

    According to some websites this means there is a problem with the graphics adapter. so i removed the card and used on board graphics...same problems...then i tried with several other graphcis cards.. same problem.

    also tried changing ram speeds etc etc.
    please help.

    is the motherboard bust? ive given it into a shop now...seems like hes not to sure too.:s

    any ideas?

    also the cpu fan and power supply fan are running fine.

    Try clearing the cmos, your mobo manual will tell you how to do it!!!!

    yup completely disconnected. although i wasnt wearing anti static wrist wrap. i heard touching pins on plug once does the same job. could it be static problem? i was very carefull not to touch pins though.

    Static electricity tends to cause problems down the line rather than immediately so i doubt it was the cause!!!

    Can you please list all the specs of your pc including the make and wattage of your psu and i will see if i can help further!!!:)

    The only thing i can suggest is that you get in contact with the seller and inform him that the pc doesn't work and see if you can get it replaced or get your money back!!!!
