Question about Soyo KT600 Dragon Plus Motherboard
Have a KT-600 DP have had it working for about 2 years. Today went to power it up and came on for 1 sec then long beep. Now this is what i have done. read troubleshooting guide. check cpu fan, replaced , checked cpu fan connector, checked. Even replaced cpu with another. Cleared CMOS (JP5) nothing , removed changed power supply. yes p4 power supply. nothing. Checked memory not problem. disconnected HD, CD, still beeping Disconnected everything but cpu, fan, electric plug and switch. still one long beep. This is not the first soyo motherboard i have had problems with I have a soyo SK-K7MP2. And guess what it does the same dam thing. And yes they were in different case's. Any other ID's Could use some help !!
It has to do with the KT-600 series "anti burn regulator" and how it has a hard time with the XP2600 thru 3200 CPU's because they get so hot so fast... Try pressing the power on button again immediately after the long beep ends. Your computer should boot right up. Or, you can disable the ABR by removing the jumper from the pins on the motherboard. I haven't tried this because I like knowing the ABR works so good. It only takes a second or two to fry a CPU.

The beep are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
Make sure that your ram is securely seated
test or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps
