coxy1965 is on a distinguished road
motherboard not responding

This is a bit embarrasing but I cannot remember the solution! I recently built a new system for a workmate, he gave me his old system to practice on. I bought a new case, fitted the board (including cpu and graffics card from old system) plugged in a monitor, cleared CMOS, switched on - nothing! Well, not exactly nothing but a series of beeps. I haven't had this problem for years and can't for the life of me remember how to remedy it. Would appreciate any help!

Motherboard - ECS K7VZA

Have tried ECS website but no joy.

beeps is the bios trying to tell you something, there is a site (cant remember right now, google " BIOS BIPS ") that tells you what these bips means, hopefully you'll find the answer to your problem that way

How many times does it beep? Try reseating video and memory.
If it isn't broke, fix it till it is.
