Question about Abit GD8 Motherboard
Was on the computer when it hard locked. After re-booting, the computer started a long beeping, and there was a green light which immediately turned to a constant red light lit up on the motherboard. This computer is only about one year old.
Something on the motherboard has failed, and the RED light confirms it.
Turn your computer off.
Remove ALL of the RAM. Turn your computer on.
Do all the fan(s) start to spin?
Do you get the _same_ "beeps" as before, or some different pattern of beeps?
If it has more than one stick of RAM (and the RAM is _NOT_ labelled 'DDR2'),
then remove all but one stick of RAM, turn your computer on, and try to reboot.
Turn your computer off, try a different single (or pair of) sticks of RAM.
Caution: before doing any of the above, your computer could be within the "WARRANTY" period,
i.e., it could be fixed/replaced for free!

make sure that your RAM is securely seated
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function
