I tried to install a new motherboard but it didn't work
First I tried to install a bigger memory card, but when I turned it on, it started beeping. I checked all the other cards (video, sound) and it continue beeping. As I had another motherboard (asus p4b266c) I replaced. After that it didn't work at all.
Thanks for your time

Re: I tried to install a new motherboard but it didn't...
Your bios needed to be set with the correct memory speed on your old motherboard or it did not support the memory you added or it was in the wrong memory slot or size. The beeping was telling you it was a memory error. I need more info such as processor and memory speed and type to help. What is your old motherboard? It sound like Bios settings but I need to make sure the memory and processor will work with *********** board.

Beeps are mainly caused by bad, dusty memory module or the port it is connected to. However, since you have tried changing it with a working one and i suppose you already clean it that's fine. One more hardware which causes beeps is the video card. If you have a video card installed, it may be moved when you change the memory module. I suggest you try to reseat the video card as well..
No beeps Short, no power, bad CPU or motherboard, or the CPU is not installed properly.One long beep, then two short beepsVideo problemContinuous hi-lo beepsCPU overheatingRepeated long beepsMemory errorAll other beepsMemory related error
If you are getting hi lo beeps, refit CPU and heatsink
If continuous long beeps, check memory is seated correctly, if more than 1 stick, try each one on its own, 1 may be faulty, or incompatable
check the new memory in all memory slot that u have. use thinner with a art paint brush just past it in the memory slots, just like cleaning them up. then place the memory about some seconds. switch it on. if doesnt work see your graphic card. or try a kingston memory. kingston memory works on almost all motherboard. some others even new, they dont work on some motherboard.
remove the RAM(MEMORY CHIPS) from *********** board and reinsert.if the problem is same replace the chips,get new chips.mostly cleaning the golden lines on the chip with pencil/school rubber solves the problem. No
beep is usually a power problem that can be related to the power supply,
motherboard or both. Always check your battery power before thinking there is a
bigger problem. Step3 One
beep is a normal POST. That means everything is fine. Two, Three, or Four short
beeps are normally about the memory of the machine. If there is a problem with
one of your memory chips you should get beeps of different combinations in this
area. If you get two or three short beeps, one or both of your memory chips
could be in trouble. Step4 Five
beeps point toward motherboard or CPU problems. Make sure your memory and video
card are seated properly. Try removing them and putting them back in, only if
you are comfortable with computers. Six, seven and eight beeps. Eight beeps
indicate problems with your video card. Six or Seven are CPU, or a bad chip on
the motherboard. Nine beeps mean the BIOS is bad. Replace the motherboard. Ten
beeps means the problem is in the CMOS. All chips need to be replaced. thanks.
