does the computer post? if not, then try booting up with the bare essentials. for a comp to post the following devices are only needed: power supply, motherboard, cpu, ram, and videocard.

if the computer still doesnt post then try booting the computer with only one stick of ram at time if there is more than one stick of ram. reseat the cpu and check to make sure the HSF is making a good contact with the cpu. try a spare power supply if you have a spare one, good luck.

check what the beep codes are telling you is wrong here
www.bioscentral.com
continous beeping usually indicates cpu problem

your bios will be award or msi not abit,the maker of the m/b
if you don't plug the cpu fan in the right socket it probably thinks the fan has failed and will prevent the computer from booting to protect the cpu

look in your manual or on the bios chip to see what bios you have,then check the beep codes out,and it will tell you exactly what the problem is

If the CPU fan isn't connected then the board may just think it's not spinning. They will usually quiet down after a while or following a reboot.

Hi,

I didn't look up the beep codes, but I can tell you if the CPU fan is not hooked up to the proper place on many boards, then it will beep and beep and beep for your own protection. It thinks you don't have the cpu fan hooked up. If you get an adapter 3 to 4 or whatever and plug it in the right place, that would probably solve the problem in my opinion, unless something else is messed up. I would solve this issue before you go any further.

You do need to look up the beep codes.
