Question about EliteGroup ECS P4M800-M Socket 478/P4M800/FSB800/A&V&L/M-ATX Motherboard (MOTEC18)

C1 led post code

Hello, I just bought the ECS PN2-SLI2+ Motherboard and when I boot the computer, nothing appears on my screen, just a beep every 5 seconds with the code C1 on the LED POST Codes. The fans are working, my DVD burner opens but that's it. I have no idea what to do and the manual doens't have any kind of troubleshoot.
Please Help.

Motherboard purchased new. Not booting into BIOS. 3rd board tried. Battery changed. Memory is DDR PC2700 512mb. Onboard graphics adapter. Intel Celeron 1.8GHZ processor.
I am a networking/ XP support/Cisco engineer, but i have not built a computer before.
Any ideas of why not BIOS response

CES GF 7050 can't boot

Hello here is the homepage:

I think your harddrive is failing.
Try to borrow a harddrive from a friend, just to find out of the mainboard is failing.

The power supply, could have a fault, try to renew that.
But one of the ram modules, could also have a fault.
Try to boot with only one module.

Look aslo at this page here:

Nothing coming up on the monitor

This is very difficult to troubleshoot because there are too many unknowns.
Does the mobo have diagnostic LEDs? The changes in indicators would indicate the boot up activity is taking place. If you have no visual indicators, then
You might have to get a boot up code display. This is a device that connects to the bus (via pci / pcie slot in most cases) and has a digital readout. When the mobo stops on a certain code, you will have to lookup the code to determine where it's getting stuck.
If you have no access to a diagnostic card, then some of the other very "elementary" things you can do are:
Listen for the beep code. If the speaker doesn't beep at all, then your CPU is likely not running the POST test. Check your power on LED. Check your HDD LED to see if any disk activity (hdd detection) takes place.
Other than that, you're SOL without some equipment.
Good luck!

C1 led post code

Its a problem with you RAM..I guess you are using two rams of different frequencies...This leads to a mismatch and continuous beeping..If you have only one RAM make sure it is seated properly..
Report to what happened..

My pc still won't boot up

The beeps are beep codes. Were they short or long? Also do you know who makes your BIOS?
