Worse than the black screen

  1. Hi all, heres one for you:

    On boot up (win xp H), I got to the screen that displays the "delete" to enter the CMOS, message says checking memory, comp. freezes. Reboot system and I get a long beep, pause, long beep etc. with a black screen and monitor light orange. Changed the ram and all the same but no beep. Changed the MoBo and exactly the same issue. I used the same components and the same CPU. Checked hard drive using laptop and all was good. Running ATI AIW 9600 Pro, SB Live Z2, network card, P4 2.4, 1 gig. pc 333 ram, 80 & 160 gig. HD, New MoBo is a Foxxconn. (no choice, only available 478 slot board). Once the new MoBo was installed, should I not at least see the bios at boot up?
