I cleaned my Power-supply from dust by vac. Rebuilt it in the case, pluged in all conections, and after turning power on i got one single long beep followed by the same after a few seconds. What the hell does it mean? (ECS 755-A2, Phoenix-BIOS, AMD3000+, 2x 512MB DDR-II RAM (PC1600) , ATI Radeon 256MB) Where could I get a complete POST Beep-Code list for different Bios- manufacturer (e.g. AWARD, Phoenix), or are they the same?

Computer POST and beep codes The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.
The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.
Why can't I install Windows XP on my S-ATA HDD by SiS964?
A: You have to copy the driver paired with the motherboard package into a floppy disc before you installing WinXP or Windows 2000 on your system, and follow the notice showed on the screen to insert the floopy disc. The system will grab the needed driver from the disc to finish the installation of S-ATA HDD automatically.
Because SiS964 was announced before than Windows XP and WinXP therefore it can't recognize it. If you want to install a whole new WinXP (or Windows 2000) on S-ATA HDD by SiS964, you need to copy the necessary driver from the directory named floopy image on your driver CD to one floopy disc. When you begin to install OS, follows the instruction to put your disc into floopy drive. After this, you will keep on installing your WinXP smoothly. If you use P-ATA HDD, you don't need to do like this.
t this off the sis.com web site what does it all mean.
Make sure you have the correct front panel header connected correctly to the case wires. Open you're manual to page 12 under the English section. There you'll find a picture of the front panel header & how to connect the case's LED's to the motherboard. If you no longer have the manual you can download it from ECS at this link. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=381&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=1&LanID=0 Chances are you may have the wire's connect backwards. (Positive + connected to the negative - ECT). Example, pin 1 is the + for hard disk drive & pin 3 is - for the hard disk drive. Cases vary on wire colors, normally if each connector has a common colored wire (solid color) that common wire would be the negative. Stripped wires are negative. Other cases use white colored wires as negative & colored wires as positive. As far as you not receiving any display. Try removing the AGP card & clean the copper contacts. Clean with alcohol. Place a couple drops onto a cotton swab & clean the copper, both sides. Blow out the AGP slot with canned air. Re-check all connections, power & data cables before closing the case. Power on the system & check the front led's for operation. If you still fail to get display, re-check the connection from the monitor to the case. Try you're monitor on another system. If good than you're video card could be bad. You're motherboard can run an 8x/4x speed AGP 1.5volt (only) graphics card.
Good luck zeratu_l ! Need more help? Post within this link.
You may have a short between the board & the case. (check it).
Even if this means removing the board. That clicking you hear through the speakers suggest a short. Make sure your using (Stand offs) which keeps your board off the case's mounting surface. Check the back plate so the tabs are touching the ports comming off the board for good ground.
Double check the you have fully connected both the main power ATX_ 20 pin power connector & the auxiliary 4-pin power
connector. pg. 10. Connecting 20/24-pin power cable Remove & re-seat. If your PSU has a 20 pin connector make sure you connect the cable from the correct end.
Without POST you will not get video to load. Reset your bios
pg. 9 in your manual. Re-enter your bios and setup the bios settings for your board.
Let me know if this helps you reach POST?
