Memory?

Is the RAM you have on Asus' "approved" list for that motherboard?

Is the same thing but I get no beeping whatsoever.
Do you even have a speaker connected to your mobo? Some Cases dont have a speaker heh That definitely makes sense though.
Keep us up to date. And feel free to ask Us any questions

I believe it did the first time I started it up but just to ensure I'm not daydreaming what is an alternative?

Worked fine with the same memory for 2 years, not sure why it suddenly wouldn't. It originally was not "approved" but later a bios update changed that so it worked fine.

One idea I had was changed back to my old card (if that is the problem) and editing the bios then reinstalling the new card. Problem is I sold mine to buy my new one and my friend won't let me borrow his because he is "uneasy" that it will mess his up. Plus I don't even know if that is the problem.

My conclusion is that the motherboard is messed up, not sure how or why.

You may well be correct but before giving up on the board please remove all main board connectors and remove the modular connectors from the PSU. Please examine the cables and all pins and connections checking for loose pins. After being sure they look and feel normal and correct please re-install all double checking for that tell tale click when the 24 pin and 4 or 8 pin connector slide home in there posts on the mobo. Then do the exact same for the GPU power cables then test again for a proper boot! Good luck, take your time and be exacting !

I'll take one last look but this post matches almost exactly, of course with no solution like all the others.

I rewired everything, cleaned it out, took out the battery, everything I can do and it has done nothing.

Damn, that's a pure shame! It looks like it could be one of four things. This sucks large, I would arrange to RMA the mobo and CPU back for free testing. Then check with GPU manufacturer for same. But you going to be down for at least 2-3 weeks without a system but what can you do other than have a tech charge up the wazzu for support to tell you the same things that the RMA's will?

I'm not sure of the motherboard is under warranty still, I gotta look into it. I don't mind the 2-3 weeks, I mean I've been doing this little by little since September. It would be nice to get it out of the way but it is what it is.

The only other thing I could think it could be is the GPU, I just have no way of testing but from them the multiple thread on other forums it seems like that would do nothing but I'm willing to give it a try.

I can always upgrade the mobo and ram, I was just trying to cut cost since the mobo and ram was adequate but now its not I guess.

I just find it funny that NONE of the threads had a definite answer. They all say try this or try that or have no response at all. None say dead motherboard or anything.

I still don't think its the motherboard, Problem is you don't have any extra computer parts to try. No extra GPU no extra RAM. So it gets hard troubleshooting something like this without some extra computer parts. You could always take the motherboard out, look for broken solder joints and anything burnt on the board itself. Usually you will see some visual evidence but not always.

And if indeed your MOBO is out of warranty, i would do just that. Upgrade the motherboard and memory. Would be your perfect chance.

I've narrowed it down to the mobo of GPU, I would test the GPU with a 9800 GX2 but my frirnd won't let me borrow his since he is "uneasy" thinking it will reset his whole computer so yeahI have no extra GPU. I took almost everything apart last night as saw now visible evidence as to why the mobo would be damaged in anyway.

I did wanna upgrade anyways but I was gunna wait a little while till winter was over for my snowboarding costs but it is what it is I guess.
