No beeps on startup

By jeri.rome ·
I have just installed an ASUS P4B motherboard and an Intel P4 1.6 Ghz 478-pin processor. Most of the MBs for P4 don't have jumpers, but this one has them as optional. I tried booting the PC with the default MB settings (supposed to work with ALL P4s) but I get no beeps. I do, however, have power and lights. I thought I should set the jumper settings, but I cannot find any information on what settings my processor uses. I have unplugged, re-plugged, and checked all settings. The PC should beep even if just the MB, processor & power supply are the only things plugged in, right? Any help would be appreciated.

Not necessarily. In the old days, yes. During the POST, if errors were found the computer beeped. Somewhat newer computers just gave one beep after POST if no errors were found. Sorta an "OK" message. My board doesn't beep at all, unless there is a problem.

Right, however, I don't get any video when I have the card in - and I know the card works in other MBs and it is supposed to work in this one, according to the MB manufacturer.
