Over the past few months I've been slowly gathering parts to assemble for my first self-built PC. Today I got the last of what I needed and made sure everything seemed to be plugged in correctly and in it's correct place. However I did not expect things to go smoothly off the bat, and that's why I'm here now.
I plug in the power cord and the green motherboard light comes on, good so far. I then turn the computer on and the fans all start up (all four; motherboard, heatsink, video card, case fan) and things seem fine for roughly two seconds when the heatsink fan quiets down and I get this loud, repeated beeping noise. It beeps for about 2 seconds with 3-4 seconds of quiet in between beeps, and keeps doing it until I shut the computer off.
I'm thinking it's a hard drive issue, but I could be wrong. Does anybody have any suggestions?
Asus A8E-N socket 939 64bit
nVidia GeForce 7900 GS
Some hard drive I could care less about, but still works
Emprex 18x DVD/CD R+/- & RW+/-
If you need any other information feel free to ask.
