M4a79xtd won't boot, constant beeping Tags: Asus Motherboards Last response: June 16, 2010 1:42 PM in Motherboards Share bimvee June 15, 2010 8:03:01 PM Hi, I got a BSOD yesterday, and when I try to start my computer today, it won't boot I't's gotten through bios and the startup checks without fail, but once it tries to load my operating system, it will beep incessantly, and the screen will remain blank. My hard drives are in a RAID 0 format, and bios is set to boot off them correctly. The CPU has been overclocked in the past, but was running at its rated speed when I got blue screened. I've checked all connections, and all appear to be correctly connected Any help would be much appreciated.

I had the problem of trying to boot off a single drive in the past, so that was one of the first things I checked. My drives are caviar blue 500GB, so I think they're fairly new.
