K9N Neo V3 Black screen / No post

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.

Some specs:

- Corsair HX620W (One month old)
- AMD Athlon 64 x2 @ 3.2 Ghz
- NVIDIA 8800GT 512MB
- 4x1 GB Kingston (Don't know exact specifics)

Things I've tried already:

- 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!

  1. 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.
  2. delete
