What I have here is a Medion- Modell PCMT6- Windows XP Home- Intel Pentium 4- nVIDIA graphics and not sure of how much Ram is in this machine cause I can't get it to boot up..I tried my tester PSU on it and it powered up followed by two long steady beeps and I shut it down. He said that he has had the PSU replaced in this system twice in the past year or less...Any idea's as to what the problem could be? The motherboard is N1996

Thanks

Did you try to unplug the computer from the wall, go inside and short the cmos using the jumper for about 10 seconds, then put the jumper back in the run position and see if that fixed it?

I can send you a fully tested 1,200W PSU and that thing may still not power up. It's usually something more simple...like a CMOS Battery or memory. Long steady beeps are either memory or an unrecognized CPU.

Are you piecing this thing together (new build) or has it worked before (known build and should just BOOT)?
