Is the processor fan running when you try to boot?

Your Power supply may be on its way out. Is it possible for you to fit another to test it.

This sounds like the CPU is shutting down self protection, Check the jumpers are correct for the CPU have a look at volts on CPU under the fan, and make shure they tally with the settings

special sophie: yep is phoenix, no stay in and solve this.

  special sophie 20:27 22 Jan 2003

no i meant double check that it is only beeping once

  special sophie 20:41 22 Jan 2003

right if the answer is yes that it is only beeping once reattach all power cables reinstall all expansion cards and try again if not try a different power outlet then a new power cable and then a new power supply as Elrond suggests there really cheap so its better to start there than jump straight to a new CPU
