From here

It says that there's a problem with the Keyboard

But if it's 3 short beeps, then it should be the RAM. Try re-inserting it.

try posting with no gpu and one ram stick. if your posting and see the bios update the bios then put in two dimms. if it runs fine put in three dimms. if it errors out at 4 dimms you may have to bump the ram voltage. most of the newer intel mb run better with two larger dimms then four. also look to see if the cpu power eight pin plug is connected.

^ Just what I was going to add. Try booting with just one stick of ram at a time and if the first one does not work try a different one. Also try a different ram slot just to make sure they are all working to.

I would also start the testing using the igpu first by removing the GPU and plugging the monitor into the onboard video just to rule that out.

with no beeps but no video...make sure you used the brass standoffs and the motherboard not shorted to the case. on the outside adge of the mb is a 4/8 pin connector make sure the two four pin black power plugs are connected to it.

Yeah I used the standoffs and the CPU power cable is connected if that's what you mean. Still no picture.

if from the ipgpu or gpu there no bios splash screen or post number showing. check that your cpu installed right. if it not seated the mb wont post.
