  1. Welcome Newcomer! :)

    Clear your CMOS - use a screw driver head to "short" two pins @ CMOS battery top left.
    {refer to manual}

    1 short: System boots successfully
    2 short: CMOS setting error
    1 long, 1 short: Memory or motherboard error
    1 long, 2 short: Monitor or graphics card error
    1 long, 3 short: Keyboard error
    1 long, 9 short: BIOS ROM error
    Continuous long beeps: Graphics card not inserted properly
    Continuous short beeps: Power error

    "Use this jumper to clear the CMOS values (e.g. date information and BIOS configurations) and reset the CMOS values to factory defaults. To clear the CMOS values, place a jumper cap on the two pins to temporarily short the two pins or use a metal object like a screwdriver to touch the two pins for a few seconds."

    "Always turn off your computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before clearing
    the CMOS values.
    • After clearing the CMOS values and before turning on your computer, be sure to remove the jumper cap from the jumper. Failure to do so may cause damage to the motherboard.
    • After system restart, go to BIOS Setup to load factory defaults (select Load Optimized Defaults)
    or manually configure the BIOS settings (refer to Chapter 2, "BIOS Setup," for BIOS configurations)."
  2. I shorted the jumper, and even took the battery out, and still the same, reboot, two beeps, bios screen. Any other suggestions?
  3. Breadboard the MOBO and disconnect all but minimum required components; use 1 RAM stick.
