Comp gurus HELP!!!!!!!!!

OK guys since we have moved house my new computer is driving me crazy .......

It beeps a slow beep continuiously ....... sometimes but not often its a long constant beep which makes me turn the comp off completly for a while ....

Now I have read the maual for the motherboard & it tells me that its a power falure .... well the slow continuous beep is ........

I have also checked out the system information & it tells me that the ACPI IRQ Holder for PCI IRQ Steering has a 'problem' ........

Please help me not think Im going crazy from this constant beeping & please tell me I can fix it

Re: Comp gurus HELP!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like you knocked the power supply whist moving...

Do you know the specs? The Athlon processors generally have alot of problems which it comes to power supplies.

Re: Comp gurus HELP!!!!!!!!!

unhook the case sound? or is it onboard...

It is becoming very hot, maybe you hould clean your case out? It may be a overheating message? The Athlons run very hot, especially if it is a Palamino cored one.

dont they have heat sinks and fans?! Also, if they do overheat, arent the comps designed to switch off to prevent permanant damage to the chip and board?! It wouldnt just beep.

Try the new power source as others have mentioned. If it still does it, put the computer in a room in your house that is cooler (every house has that one room). Or get a nitrogen pack for it cause you must really putting it through its paces.

Thumbs up Re: Comp gurus HELP!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like it is overheating. Be very careful with this. AMD systems do not shut themself down quick enough to save the cpu and motherboard. At least i have never seen one do so. They tend to just melt and go up in a puff of smoke and sometimes fire. good shit, or bad shit if it is your computer. Intel however will slow down to a grinding halt to save themselves.

Make sure all fans are clear and working. Vaccum out any dust. try not to knock it around too much. If this is a little over your head, ask a friend with some knowledge to help you.

Re: Comp gurus HELP!!!!!!!!!

invest in the chemical cold pack... well worth it if it doesnt have a fail safe and is good when we have our 35 degree days.
