Question about BCM BC875PLG Socket 4 ATX P4 800FSB DDR LAN Motherboard
After installing CPU, RAM, HDD, VideoCard, and Front Side Headers, I tried to fire up my rig for the first time.
CPU fan, System fan all start, and I get a RED and Green LED light located at the lower left corner of the Motherboard and a totally obnoxious BEEEEP, and no other activity. No display at all?
I've built many AMD rigs in the past, and this is my first attempt at an INTEL build. Maybe I should have gone with a better namae brand than BCM, but I needed the ISA slot and this was the only P4 otion with built in ISA support.
No display at all can be video is not seated correctly or memory is not seated correctly. Memory can also be bad. For your beep codes click the link I have posted. This is bios codes & beep codes. Your Award bios beep codes will be listed when the page opends.
Looking at the Award bios beep code it hints your CPU may have overheated. Did you use thermal grease between the CPU & the heat sink. I couldn't find the green or red led's on the board layout. I know the green led just lets you know there is power to the board.
This board also requires you use the 4 pin ATX_12v connector for powering the CPU.

Hmmm my sussgestion in yoyr case is that, don't attach all things at once. do the following step bye step.
Step 1). Attach SMPS, Front Panel Connectio, and an in built speaker and CPU (don't add RAM, HDD, FDD, VGA Card or any thing els)
Power on and watch:
Case 1: if you can hear a long beep, then you CPU and board is OK
Case 2: No beep means CPU or board is faulty. Try to Reconnect CPU again and do step 1.
Step 2) Now power off and add RAM only.
Power on and watch.
Case 1: if you can hear the ok beep it means till now your RAM is Ok
otherwise clean your RAM connection and add it again.
Further you can add your VGA, HDD CD-ROM/DVD, PCI Devices etc. and easily short-out your problem.
