nt into sleep mode right away.Fans work, cdrom light comes on , no hard drive light , no floppy light.

( BEEPS ) Beep- beep,beep,beep. BEEP all sound alike , short beeps.

so i guess my mnother board is alright

will get a new video card an pentium 3 CPU , slot 1
Does anyone know what the beeps mean?

thank you
manhandy :rolleyes:

can you count the beeps and do you know your bios?
the number of beeps helps identify the problem.
since you did not list the bios brand and how many beeps were actualy heard I found a nice site that will help you fix the problem.
