    As some people may know I got a free amd athalon xp system with a fx5900, also a 40 gig Hard drive, and around 712ram something like that. It's a compaq Presario 6000 upped with some stuff.

    First thing that was an issue was that you'd have to put a huge fan right next to the pc with no door, it overheated. I cleaned off the surface of the stock Heatsink, put as5 on and it seems to run cool (Cant tell yet). Fixed this issue.

    Second thing, I booted it up, and it said "start windows normally" so I hit that, then it shut down and would start up again, and die in 4 seconds, So I hit the power button and it kept doing that, so I took the heatsink off to see if I may of crushed the core, I put it back on When everything looked fine, and it worked? Odd? Fixed this issue.

    The next issue is this beep, It makes a beeping sound about every 3 seconds, and a never ending chain of those beeps in a 3 seconds time frame. So I tried other ram, tried another gpu, even took of the heatsink and put it back on, unplugged some stuff. I also switched jumpers from one side to another...Still nothing...I have been told it' a dead mobo (can't be it was working before for about 3 years, I even saw it get to windows). Any other suggestions? Not fixed

    Your mobo, processor, or psu has given out.
