    Post config.

    Swap out memory, test one dimm at a time.

    Use this to verify cables, no pinched cables, etc. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-steps-posting-post-boot-video-problems eventually you'll try bread-boarding if you don't find the problem sooner.

    Standard debugging is to remove parts until system posts cleanly then add them back in until it goes bad.
  3. Thank you I think it might be the front panel switches il try in a few minutes
  4. It's just beeps and beeps
  5. Excellent. Google BEEP CODES. The bios is trying to tell you what failed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beep_codes

    The actual beep codes for your PC will be in the troubleshoot section of your manual for PC or motherboard.
  6. It just keeps beeping and beeping all I know is that my motherboard is called Nettle 2 and I'm currently computer less (I'm using my iPod touch)
