New Motherboard, will beep and check RAM and halt.

I have a new Shuttle AR40 motherboard, and after properly(?) installling the board and components, I can only get the main screen where memory is allocated and I get a beep. I cannot press Delete to acess setup, no movement, and control-alt-delete is non useable. Any help getting me to use my new mobo would be greatly appreciated, as I am nowe having to use a friends computer. PLEASE HELP!!

well maybe your memory is bad.

can you use the memory from your friends computer and see if it posts with that memory.

I assume you are using good quality DDR memory. pc2100.

let us know what parts you have installed in your computer since it can make the difference in some cases.

Try putting the memory in difference spots, I know this sounds weird but i had to do that with my mobo (not the same one you have) and i got my brand new memory to work, i thought it was weird that it was doing that, but all the memory works once i put them into slots they would cooperate with. I bought 768MB of RAM, I expect 768MB of RAM!

It's a new motherboard -- why not call tech support?

Make sure the Windows CD isn't in the drive. A bunch of the Dell computers we have hault there if a CD is in the tray. Worth a try, anyway...
