I have been wanting to put together an old PC for months just to play around, but I can't seem to get it to boot. What happens is when I power it on it gives me long beeps and there is no video. I know that the beeps are supposed to mean something, but I am not sure what. I know that the bios battery was dead so I replaced it.
By the way PerComp(maker of the motherboard) is either out of business or they have changed thier name and web address. No help there.
I tried a different power supply and removing all boards including the video.
What else should I check?

i'd check the bios settings since you had to replace the battery. reset them if necessary. also, check the ram to see if it's seated properly.
did it work before? or did this just happen. if anything else has changed, check that, too. what os are you using? more specs would be helpful.

I did not realize that the memory banks had to be full for it to work. That ended up being the problem. Thanks for the response.

was that other pc in the same room?
did you check to see if that wall outlet actually was working by plugging in a lamp or something you know works?
or maybe the wiring was loose at the power switch in the pc
or the power cord was not pushed all the way in at the back of the pc
have you tried the power supply back in the P-II again

either a wire is connected wrong, or you need to check that all cards, and memory are securely in there sockets. if else, then maybe the motherboard is failing, power supply, even, too. get a new motherboard or even power sulpply, they're cheap, nowadays.
