k, so im kinda having a bad day and dint put as much effort into coming up with every possible solution, but assuming you know you didnt shock the board and damage it that way make sure you didnt accidentally knock off the CMOS chip ( the thing you use to reset your BIOS ). I did that the other day while cleaning out my system and nearly freaked out until I realized what id done. That would keep it from posting at all.
There should be a two pin header you can plug it into, its often next to a few other ones like the USB headers to save space. Check your mobo manual it should tell you where it goes, its likely color coded.
One long beep followed by two short beeps usually indicates a video problem. You'll have to check your motherboard owners manual to verify. It's also very hard to try to diagnose a problem without knowing what hardware we're working with (GPU, PSU, RAM, etc...).
Did you go through the entire checklist posted above? The solution to your problem is likely in the checklist.
See my response in bold above. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but your problems are very common and most likely easily fixed if you will just follow the steps in the checklist. That's why the checklist is a sticky. #2 on the list is the most common mistake. Faulty RAM is fairly common also. Remember that the motherboard owners manual is your friend.
You're computer won't POST without any RAM installed. The link you gave for your RAM takes me to a list of about every possible RAM kit OCZ makes.
I wasn't aware that AMD had released the "AMD x4 950 BE" yet. Do you mean the Phenom II x4 955? If so, yes you most likely need to update your BIOS. The 955 isn't supported until BIOS version 0601 released on 05/08/2009.
just had a look round, the AMI beeb code says 3 peeps = memory problems , however the beebs only occor when there isnt any Ram installed, so i donno., im goingto get some ram and a graphics card to moto test, if that doest ill gt a replacment on my motherboard
OP, if you would have taked the time to list your hardware from the very beginning, it is pretty apparent what your problem likely is.
Your motherboard BIOS does not support your CPU.
You will have to obtain a CPU that will boot with the BIOS you have, and update the BIOS to the latest version, and then....and only then, will the motherboard make it to POST. Or send it back and make it clear to your vendor exactly the CPU you are trying to run.
yh i got a return sorted out, you reckon if i told them, they would send it with the latest bios.
sorry about not listing to begin with, was a lil crazy at the time haha, but yh i thought it could be that too,but wounldnt they of thought of this when building it lol? The latest bios only came out under a month ago so it very well could be the issue,
ill try the ram tomo, if that dosent work, ill return it and tell them lol,
