  1. i had exactly the same thing happening in august

    the result was that my mobo died
    so in this case it might be the same

    basicly in the mobo's manual you will always find a basic explenation of the mobo POST beeps

    in case it doesn't beep at all the mobo has a trouble and can't start up the system

    90% chance that this is the problem

  2. Constantly red normally means an IDE cable is backwards, but you probably have keyed cables and you say it was working before (no changes in the cable), so my guess would be a drive failure.

    Try unhooking the IDE cables and see of the POST screen comes up.
