Abit BX6 w/433 Celeron
128meg Dimm in Bank0,1 (DIMM1)
Cougar Gamer Video Card
250W Power Supply
Woke up this morning to a dead power supply. Replaced it and got the dreaded black screen with repeating one long beep. In an Award bios this is either video or memory -right? Reseated both memory and video and disconnected drives and other boards tried another power supply- same problem. I have a twin to this computer and put the memory,video,CPU and power supply in that one and they function ok. Put all back in the ailing computer except memory in the next bank over (Bank2,3). Power on now gives me Award bios screen with CPU designation but no memory check and del won't enter BIOS setup (no extraneous beeps tho)it just sits there.
Tried other 2 banks with memory and same results except Bank0,1 gives me the original black screen and one long beep. Any ideas other than new mainboard?? Thanks for your time and interest.
