My brother's computer (home built by me several years ago) finally bit the dust. It was a 533 Celleron that I had OC'd to 800 MHz with 512 of PC100 memory, 50 gigs of hard disk space bla bla bla.
The dang thing won't post. When I hit the power button it gives 1 long beep followed by 2 short beeps. I tried a different video card and pulling out various components... no dice.
Anyway, I think I can salvage everything but the motherboard/processor. Does anyone know of a CHEAP combo that I can still use the same RAM? I know they made Socket A boards that would take PC100 and up to an Athalon 1600+. Of course I can't find anything on NewEgg or Mwave (my normal online retailers). I'm just trying to get him up and running. He is like me and doesn't play games so anything above 1GHz would be fine.
I exist, if for no other reason, to increase the entropy of the universe.
