03/26/2004: "Maybe a bad proc"

mood: Defeated

Today I bought a new computer. I got a snazzy case, an ASUS P4P800 Deluxe MoBo, and P4 2.8 GHz Extreme Edition (1 Mb Cache) and a gig of PC3200 (DDR400) RAM. But it doesn't work. And I think its the processor. The reason I think this is that, without the processor installed, the mother bord tells me "No CPU. System Failed CPU Test. No CPU. System failed CPU test," which is exactly what it is supposed to do. However, when the processor is properly installed with the incredibly-hard-to-maneuver heatsink/fan combo, the system start up, says nothing, and then begins the terrible two-tone warning beep, which continues indefinitely until I power off. I left everything else (except hard drives and cd drives and front-of-case USB ports plugged in, so I'm pretty sure the problem is with the processor.

ITs really late and I have one more day of 7:00am work, so I must be to sleep now.
