Motherboard problems :(:(:(:(
Hi u guys!
Hows things going?
I bought for 100 bucks a used motherboard ASUS and a P4 1.5 and 256 MB (Rimm) of Ram, it was for an upgrade to a PIII...
so, i got home, removed the old board and replaced it for the new one, but it doesnt work
It makes a bip (forever..) and nothing happens, no screen, nothing..just beep..
The current power unit is 250V...
The board is used
The memory is 64+64+64+64 Rimm
The board is an ASUS WT70 EC
HereŽs a pic of the Board
Can anyone explain what could it be? It didnt came with manuals etc..
It was kinda of a bargen..for me at least..
Thanx guys in advance!

Do you have a P4 power supply? It will have 2 more cables that will go to the system board plus the regular ATX. A 4 pin ATX and a 6 pin Aux connector that looks like half an old AT connector

Well I was looking for a solution before I saw that the problem has likeyly already been solved. But I might as well share what I found in case that may be the problem.
Taken from the manual for your motherboard:
I found your motherboard's manual at http://www3.fujitsu-siemens.com/serv...c/handbuch.zip
B.1 POST Beep
There are two kinds of beep codes in the BIOS. One code indicates
that a video error has occured and the BIOS cannot initialize the
video screen to display any additional information. This beep code
consists of a single long beep followed by three short beeps. The
other code indicates that a DRAM error has occured. This beep
code consists of a single long beep.

I think its the power supply..because its a regular 250V for a Pentium II/III...but the beep is single and long, though it happens with and without the Rimms..
I can only check it tomorrow.
Ill post here the results.
Cheers and thanx for the replays!

I think I'm not reading this correctly. You said you bought an ASUS board and you linked a picture of a DFI board?....... Or is that a pic of your old board....the DFI?
