- PC not getting to BIOS

I replaced my Thermaltake Volcano 10 with the newer Thermaltake Volcano
12 to try and reduce the temp of my cpu. AMD XP Barton 3000+, Gigabyte
Upon completion I restarted the machine...had a issue where I was
getting a single continuous beep. I have an AWARD BIOS so I searched
google and found out through trial and error that one of my three
memory sticks has gone bad. The beeping problem is fixed.
Now I have a new problem, when I start the machine, the PC fires up,
but nothing happens, the HD drive light is on full time, CPU fan runs,
Video fan runs, mouse has power, but I do not get to the BIOS Screen.
I was reading on Google groups that it could be the PSU going bad. I
tried disconnecting the extra HD and IDE CD-ROM drives, but that did
not improve the situation.
any thoughts? Thanks, Andrew
Re: PC not getting to BIOS
Similar symptoms if ide cable wrong way around. (if you got an older cable?)
If USB mouse or keyboard try a PS2 one (s).
Power cable not plugged in HD?
Speed sensor from new fan not being detected or not detected up to required
Fan plugged into case fan slot & not CPU fan slot?
