    Motherboard GA-8IRX


    I have recently puchased a Intel P4 2.4 Ghz L2 512K cache. When I install it on my GA-8IRX motherboard and boot up I get 11 quick beeps and then continuos beeps. I have unplugged all cards and HD's and devices only the Video Card and RAM are installed.

    Can anyone tell me what might be the problem.

    Thanks

    find out what bios type/brand you have like Pheonix or Award. Theyl have a description of their beep codes on the internet.

    Im not sure, can you try a different cpu? As far as i know you can only get beep codes if the cpu is working. Maybe anyone else can help . . . ?
