So I've been struggling with my system for the last week or so. It consists of:
Foxconn A7DA - 3.0 AM3 790GX RT (motherboard)
AMD Phenom II x 4 955 (CPU)
Radeon 4890 (GFX card)
4 x 2GB Kingston DDR3 1333 (RAM)
WD 500 GB hd
OCZ 600W PSU
I've had this system for almost a year and it has been completely fine. However, about a week ago I went to boot up and I didn't have any video. I wasn't sure if the system was even booting (no video, obviously). I was probably getting a POST error message, but at the time I wasn't really paying attention for that.
Fast forward to now and I need some help diagnosing what is going on.
When I plug any of my 4 sticks of ram into any of the 4 channels, I get a bios beep sequence of 1 Long -------- 4 short beeps
I don't know what this might be indicating. My google searches have only turned up "memory issue or timer issue"
Everything is still under warranty (I actually already have RMA requests processed for the mobo and the gfx card since I originally thought it had to be one or the other), but I need to figure out which component(s) might be causing this before I can proceed.
