I recently received an intel D945PSN with 2.80 Ghz pentium D. It has 2 GB of DDR2 667 CL3 ram. this is an upgrade to an old system - after i installed the new board, I tried booting off of my old HDD. I decided to do a clean install of the OS, but after playing with the settings in the bios for a bit, i now get three long beeps on power on, and nothing further. no noticable POST, and the machine does not boot. I tried the CD based ".bio" recovery, but it didn't do anything. I have tried removing the ram and the videocard, both alone and together, and that makes no difference. I also tried letting it sit without power and battery for about 15 - 20 minutes, and no luck there either. Any help would be appriciated.
