Question about Gigabyte 8IG1000MK Motherboard
I recently bought some ddr400 (pc3200) ram to upgrade my computer with. The cpu is currently a p4 2.66GHz 133MHz (533MHz) and my understanding was that the ram would run at a reduced speed to match the processor. I put the ram in a got the continuous beeping when the system is booted, so I checked the manual and found "continuous short beeps: Power error", so thinking my old 175W psu finally wasn't giving enough grunt for the new ram I replaced it with a 400W. Still beeping. So I overclocked the cpu to 200MHz (800MHz) ie a match for the ram and STILL beeping. Now I'm scratching my head. What is up with this motherboard?
No need to replace motherboard.The beep is an error code.
Try setting you bios to default or factory settings.Overclocking will in time cause a heat issue.
Use known to be good ram.Ive had ram bad right from the package.
If you want to go faster then consider a new mb and processor.

I have the same problem with my PC. I could not solve the problem by changing RAM and PSU. Finaly I had to replace the MB with the new one. So this is the problem with the MB and The Motherboard should be changed. Please replace the MB with the new one.
