Is it probably the video card?
My dad's computer died earlier in the week so I suggested he get a motherboard, CPU and RAM bundle at MicroCenter. The MB is an ECS P45P-A, a Celeron 430 and 1GB Crucial Memory PC-5300 DDR2. Video card is EVGA 6200LE PCI-E card. When I put the system together and powered it on there was no video, but strangely no beeps either. Think his speaker is dead. In any case I ended up taking it back to my place and put the video card in my system.
When I turned it on I got display along with a long, non-stop beep. I put my card back in and everything was OK. Put his card back in and the same thing: display but long non-stop beep. I removed one stick of RAM same problem. I also went into the BIOS and changed the frame size to 256 and then to disabled, no dice.
Does this sound like a video card problem or is there something else I should check? He really needs to get this computer back up ASAP.
