    Exclamation Completed new computer, but getting an error beep.

    Ok well the computer I just built for my Realator is finished, but when I turn the computer on, the monitor doesnt flicker or turn on and all the computer does is make Long single beeps. For Example. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.... Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.... I read up on that and I guess it says its some "memory problem"? and all I have to really do was change the memory to a different slot. Well I did that, and then took memory out of both my working computers to see if that changed anything but it still made the same beep! Whats going on?!!

    Well any comments are great! Thanks guys!

    definatley memory fault, continous beeping after 1 second pause might be a compatibility issue or just a faulty stick of ram

    I would go with the others but had similar beeps before and it turned out to be the graphics card not seated correctly.

    What is the system spec?

    A quick series of beeps followed by a pause is normally a graphics card issue. I would say RAM also, either a faulty module or socket.

    Well I just noticed there is a BIG scratch on the mobo between the cpu and the memory slots. Would this cause anything?

    Well yes, if it's a scratch you can surely ascertain whether it has caused any damage to the PCB, solder or anything? Take it back and point it out or RMA it or whatever.
