It's a saying! Last ettempts at something, last try before you ditch the board, get rid of it, etc.. The last post I wrote for you, trying different stuff before you RMA, the last ditch-effort.

Couple of the pics were from construction of the unit which would account for the small mess :)

XXXXXXX Continuous Beeping (short burst but continuous): Memory or video problem XXXXXXXXXX

Explanation: The system is producing constant beeping in no specific pattern, or a fast "ringing" sound.

Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the system memory, or possibly the video card. The memory is more likely--the system complains long and loud if it can't find any usable memory, as there is no way to even start the boot process when this is the case. The motherboard itself could also be the problem.

Recommendation:

* Troubleshoot the system memory.
* Troubleshoot the video card.
* Troubleshoot the motherboard.

Compliments of Merc

Can you send me a pic of the case so I can see the wiring?

the board i thought was bad at the start now works, i didnt plug the 12v 4pin into the slot at the top left had of the board. and the new once i was trying today was bleeping so i thought ill try the old one as i never pluged the 12v pin in before and now it works, it means the replacement board is bad and the first one was good.

So if you dont get no video display on the screen and i mean NOTHINK its because you need a decent power supply and have to have the 12v 4 pin conector pluged in.

Thanks for the Help and i woundnt of beenable to sort this if it wasnt for the Forum. TOP DUDES, Ill help when i can from now on. Gota go Juice up me babby. Stay Safe

David-
I believe that was Mike helping you out earlier. Anyways, that 4 pin connector supposedly provides additional 12 volt current to the CPU. From what I can gather it supplements the regular 12v power so that the CPU has a steady current at whatever level it needs.

Id Just Like To Say thanks for the Help.

The 12v Plug that has to be pluged into top left had of the board to supply the extra power for the CPu is not Explained in the manuals Properly. Also it didnt help cos the Tagan 480w PSU Had the plugs ,marked up as P4 and warned not to mix which scared me away from the idea of pluging them in. Without the 12V Plug installed the system just breathed some life for a second then died again.

Thanks Again, Im just putting things together so ill spk again latter.

Hi all, this forum is a great read, and the bios help at start of thread was invaluable.



I have a quick question though, maybe a silly one but here goes.

Is it a necessity to install windows sp2 for the board to work correctly?

I have a few friends that have the board, they formatted 5 times before going with the sp2 and all seems ok for them now. They had lots of little problems at start but sp2 seemed to cure all.

Do people have the board functioning flawlessly with just sp1 installed?

Why?

You mean you don't want to run SP2?

Why?

Always use the latest fixes! Even just for security reasons!

Use SP2.....simple

hi again

I was just wondering if anyone had the board runing ok without windows sp2 or if it would only be stable with it installed.

I think you should run Super_PI as described earlier in the forum, I did and found out I had to up my memory voltage to 2.90 to get my kingston 4000 to work with the board...

Super Pi 32M ran fine after these adjustments - memory simple as that....

This may or may not be true for you so please be aware that I can afford to fry my memory - you may not...

Sean

PS first try wioth 3dMark 05 and I got 9437 (I think) not bad for a 0Mhz FSB....

Sean,

Thanks for the advice! I'm not sure what the Super_Pi is. Can you please explain or direct me to the correct page and I will take it from there.

Thanks

well Super_Pi says it all really,

runs PI to the nth degree....

see http://www.geocities.com/hjsmithh/Pi/Super_Pi.html

download and run the exe...yes - this is ok this is the same one I use...check it for viruses etc as you should always (I take no respons...etc)

open it select your first measure - say Pi to 1M first then try the next etc....a great way to see what happens.

Please let us know how you get on.

regards
Sean

I put this board in an Antec Superlanboy which has a frontpanel with 3 LEDz, green orange, and red.

I was wondering, anyone any hints as to where to put the 2 pin orange led wire on the board?

I found a piccy on the web featuring the case & the particular wire I am talking about ( http://www.fanbus.com/reviews/SuperLanboy/images/8sl_wiring.JPG ). On that 8sl_wiring.JPG the wire is called "turbo led", my wire is blank i.e. no text... but they must have run out of ink presumably ;)

Aino

PS Mike the mess comment was meant as a compliment :)
