note, when I remove the no-name meory, I get a long beep (but of course no post) so I spose the memory is slightly incompatible with this board - fj
I am putting together a system from spare parts - a new abit va-10 mobo, a stick of pc 2100 (256mb) memory from my brother in law, and an AMD xp1700 from ebay.
this motherboard did in fact beep when I tried a blown cpu in it last week, but with the new cpu, well, it starts fine, looks great, posts, etc, (haven't installed any disks yet) but . . . no beep! I tried flipping the polarity of the speaker, no help. does the total lack of beep mean something sinister? all looks good otherwise. - fj
