Hey all, I have tried unplugging everything one at a time, and nothing has worked. The POST beep error code is 1 long and 2 short. The motherboard I am using is a MSI 890fxa gd65 If any more information is required just ask, thank you.

One long and 2 short is memory issue, remove and re-seat the memory chips making sure the notches are the right direction and they click in and try again.

Pretty sure it is something with my graphics card though, considering this website + many others say the beep code is for Monitor or display card error

Ok maybe, maybe not. Lets go out on a limb here and try it eh? I've been told "Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." I realize your link is strait from MSI but lest try the mem switch anyway. Try One stick at a time, see if the problem persists, then try the other, see if the problem persists, then try the other slots in this fashion. 1 long and 2 short in my experiance has always been a memory issue, simply because it is a step in my build process, breadboarding a new build.

The thing is I have already tried all of those things, I have tried each stick of RAM individually, and I have tried with no RAM at all. I have removed every single thing that my PC needs to start up, yet the problem still persists. The problem is my motherboard has no no-board video, so even if I take out my graphics card I still get the same error beep code because there is not graphics at all. The thing I want to know is it my graphics card or my motherboard?
