Question about EliteGroup ECS 755-A2 Motherboard
! just finished building a New system for my duaghter but the system won't boot up, all I get is a repeating beep.. everthing else start i.e., fans, power supply, dvd - cd & floopy lights flicker, etc. No activaty on the monitor. I checked and rechecked all conections but stiil the same, No bootimg steady beep..! Any help will be apreciated.
Okay - A little focus and resolve and the answer seems to be:
To get the system running again...
-unplug all unessential components
[I left my CPU, CPUfan, GPU, GPUfan, memory, both HDs connected inside; keyboard, monitor outside; USB mouse on standby]
[a matter of power-down, move jumper, move jumper back after a few moments]
-reboot and enter BIOS, reset date
[if date is not reset then checks may be enforced - DEBIAN Etch will do this!]
-plug in mouse
I have still to find out the cause for the problem in the first place, so as soon as I have all my backups off the drive I will try plugging in the DVD-RW, and each extra fan in turn. I have a suspicion that there is an overload problem (the PSU is rated 500W; I have to ask is this enough?).

Hi, Depends on the number of beeps and their sequence, the problem can either be video or memory. In some rare instances (Asus motherboards) this would indicate a BIOS problem. Perhaps what you try is to remove the video card/memory, clean the gold contacts using a pencil eraser and re-insert back to the slot. You can also try doing a CMOS reset on the motherboard and thereafter run it a Fail-Safe or Default settings. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
