need help on hardware

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I got myself a ECS K7s5a motherboard, Radeon 7500 agp card, 2 sticks of 512Mb sdram, and AMD Athlon 800mhz. Now, I was able to get it running for about a day, then when I was playing a game the picture disappeared and I knew something was wrong so I turned the computer off. Now when I turn it back on, it powers up but it won't boot, ie no signals to the monitor. The computer would make rapid beepings when I turn it on (still no signal to monitor). If only I know what those beeps mean. It's obviously trying to tell me something, and I'm dying to find out what, but it seems we have a language barrier :(Anybody knows any incompatability issues between those hardwares? Anybody have any suggestings on what to check? I checked the cpu on another motherboard and it boots fine.

It's the power supply. The k7s5a board is very finicky when it comes to power supplies. Get yourself a good power supply( 350 w or better) and it will boot fine.tony
