Recheck your work, don't take anything for granted. Assure that all connections and cards, etc are fully seated and properly ordinated. Review the bios area and enable or disable as required, you may want to restart at defaults or select "safe" setting to get a basic config and proceed from taht point. Usually a multiple beep is a video(guessing) problem but the sequence is the key to determine that for it could be elsewhere. Otherwise, be sure the power supply is OK set at 115V.

good luck -----Willy Happy

Thanks for the help! I have disconnected everthing used onboard video, then tried agp card,I get video with both but beeps also,
what I'm worried about is letting it run to long if its some kind of overheating issue, although I have proper heatsink and fan and thermal paste.was using this MB in a different case with no problem but I cleand off chip and reapplied paste and heatsink and btw its not a hi low beep just continuous fast beep.thanks for the help!

The new case issue.

In reply to: Re: Beep beep beep beep Giga-Byte Motherboard

Too often I read this and there is an extra metal post shorting out on the backside of the motherboard.

Easy to test. Remove the motherboard and place on cardboard with PSU/other parts and see if it still beep-beeps.

Step 1: Set System Jumper (JP1)? Fan Fail Warning?

In reply to: Beep beep beep beep Giga-Byte Motherboard

Hi, just installed are similar Gigabyte Mobo - 1st step was removing the JP1 jumper so that the mobo was set to auto FSB and not locked to 100MHz.

Not sure whether incorrect FSB would cause beeping but it would certainly be worth a check.

Are your fans all working and do you have CPU and System Fan fail warning set to enable or disable in your BIOS. If you don't have a system fan plugged into sytem fan plug SYS_FAN but powered from power supply then having the warning enabled in BIOS may cause a alarm as if failed.

Cheers
