  1. Allright I'm having a heck of a time with this thing, I shut it down for a little bit then when it starts back up it beeps, and I mean just keeps beeping, it doesnt stop. Just every beep is the same length as the last one, long beeps, I have a phoenix - AwardBios. But another strange thing also happens, if I restart it, it just loads up to this screen (dont know what its called)

    Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PC etc etc

    ASUS A7N8X ACPI BIOS Rev 1002.A

    Main Processor : AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+ <----that should say 2400+
    Memory Testing : 1048576K OK

    Press DEL to enter settup

    Now it STOPS there, doesnt do anything I try to hit DEL and nothin happens. I need some serious help here. This happened before I just cleaned the computer out, left it alone for a few hours and then came back and it was fine. I need help.

    ok I talked to my sister who graduated with a computer engineering degree and she said it was the memory I installed a few weeks back, yeah I feel like an *****. Apparently I didnt plug in the memory all the way in, One stick was loose and the system kept running out of memory.
