  1. What does the motherboard owners manual say about your beep codes? Never mind, I looked it up online. Your motherboard also has diagnostic LED's. What LED's are lit up? It sounds like most likely either a GPU power problem or a RAM issue. Did you plug both 6-pin power connectors into the graphics card (step 5 in the checklist)? Did you perform steps 6-8 to rule out a RAM problem?

    I know you said you read the checklist, but so does everybody else coming here with your type of problem. We need to know if you actually performed every step in the checklist and what the result of each step was.
  2. Under VGA LED it beeped once
    Under Boot Device LED it did 2fast beeps and 4 short beeps

    If its under boot devices:HDD and Optical
    I have the HDD in SATA-1
    I have the Optical in SATA-3

    Does it matter where how the power supply is tree'd?
