PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows 98 SE
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:mother board 651M Combo series Onboard video
Error Messages:

I was setting up a new computer with new motherboard and cpu.  Everything was going fine until I used the motherboard cd to try and get a better display ie more than 16 colours.  When I rebooted the computer after setup the screen goes blank and I get a long beep and then two short beeps.

I read in another post where clearing the bios may help.  I could not find the jumpers to clear my bios.  

Any help would be appreciated.

Huh?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

The beep code is definitely a video adapter "problem" but since it is integrated the only thing short from replacing the motherboard is to try and clear the BIOS. If there is no jumper to clear it and it uses a coin shaped battery, try removing it for a while, then put it back in to see if the bios was cleared.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I have tried taking the battery out then cleared the cmos.  Still get no video.  I put in a video card and I get video then but I get a bios checksum error and I can't get into the bios.  

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

If this new motherboard is under warranty, get it replaced. Sad
