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

Post by 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.
Cyberpower special rig
ASUS Prime 450M-A
Ryzen 5 3600 stock
CM Hyper 212 EVO push/pull
24GB DDR4 3000 (soon to be 32GB)
AMD RX 580 8GB
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB NVMe SSD
Lexar 256GB SSD
6GB Seagate hdd
Stock PSU (will upgrade)
ASUS VE278 27" monitor, Samsung Vizio V435-G0 42" 4K TV
Logitech Z533 2.1 Speakers, G935 7.1 headset
MS LXM-00001 Ergonomic kbd
Razer Deathadder Elite, XBOX One wireless controller

I've come a long way from that original Core2Duo build y'all! :supz:

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!
