  1. just put together a new system - AMD 2400+
    Abit KV7
    2 x Hitachi SATA 80Gb HD

    when trying to install Win Xp, at some random point in the initial phase, the screen goes blank and I get an error beep consisting of 2 second beep followed by 2 second beep of a different tone (like an old police siren - nee nah nee nah...)

    Can't find anything about this anywhere on abit's site

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanx, it sounds like that.
    I'll try a new heat sink and fan tomorrow.

    Much appreciated
