Question about Gigabyte GA-K8VT800 Motherboard
When you switch on all the computer does is beep every two seconds
A constant beep indicates either a power supply, motherboard or keyboard problem.
If you know what you are doing then open up the case (turning off the power first of course and earth yourself by touching the case before anything inside it) and make sure all the connecters are seated properly and try a different keyboard if you have one.
