No video, no post, long continuous beep.... What the??

Postby mjc928 » Sat Jan 15, 2011 1:26 am

Ok so I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place but here it goes. I just built my new system and nothing happens except a long beep (more like shriek). I've reseeded everything, check my cmos battery, checked for jumpers and I'm totally stumped. At first I thought it was my cpu fan not having enough thermal paste so I completely cleaned and applied new paste. Here are my system specs:
Asus hd6970
crosshair extreme mobo
phenom 1100t
corsair dominator 8gb (2x4gb)
thermaltake tr2 rx 1200w psu
wd caviar black 1tb
asus dvd-rom/writer
in win dragon rider full tower
So any ideas on what it could be?
Thanks

I'd be curious to see if one of your sticks of RAM might be bad. Try one at a time, and in different slots as well. If one of them is causing the computer to fail POST then you should get them sent back for replacement.
MSI 970A-G43
AMD Phenom II X4 965BE @ 3.5 GHz
10 GB DDR3 1333 CAS-7
GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB
2TB Seagate HDD, 1TB WD HDD for backups,
Antec P-180B, Antec 450W PSU
ASUS 27" LED LCD Monitor
someday I will get a real GPU and some SSD's... :goodman:

I feel kinda silly. I forgot that the newer vid cards require both the 4pin and 6pin power connections to need to be plugged in at the same time ](*,) Everything is working great now! Thanks!
