I just recently bought a MSI K9N Neo V3 motherboard and after I thought I connected everything properly, the system powered up, displayed my graphics card and another piece of hardware which I don't remember correctly, then turned black. After powering it off & on again the screen just stayed black, seemingly (I don't know this for sure) rebooting at random intervals.
- Resetting CMOS various times (By jumper and by removing the battery) - Barebone setup - Switching RAM
After resetting the CMOS by removing the battery, I hear 3 short beeps (Two short beeps, then another one after a few seconds). This only works once when resetting the CMOS. Does anyone have any ideas what might be the cause? Thanks!

Be sure you have 240 pin ddr2. Try just 2 sticks of ram that are the same brand and speed. Check for a label on the ram to see the specs. Or if it posts, use cpuid to see what speed it runs at.
