Reseat CPU, remove/disconnect everything else but one stick of RAM. tigerg a b à CPUs March 2, 2013 4:50:03 PM Did you look at your motherboard manual to see what these beeps mean?

The manual should say. Might want to double check. shanemcguffinjr March 2, 2013 5:03:13 PM There is no trouble shooting section in the manual. But i can see from the images in the manual that it used the american megatrends bios. twelve25 a b B Homebuilt system a b à CPUs March 2, 2013 10:02:31 PM Well tech support should be able to diagnose it. If they don't know what the beeps mean, then I wouldn't want anything to do with that company. shanemcguffinjr March 2, 2013 10:05:12 PM twelve25 said:Well tech support should be able to diagnose it.

Following those steps will narrow down potential dead parts, or fix the problem outright if its something simple like user error or a grounding issue. If you get through all the steps and it doesn't work, you can be reasonably sure either the CPU or motherboard is broke. twelve25 a b B Homebuilt system a b à CPUs March 3, 2013 12:11:22 AM shanemcguffinjr said:Its been 3 days of waiting for a response... I'd just return the motherboard, man. That's 3 strikes (not POSTing, no troubleshooting info, and no support). If you tried 1 stick of RAM at a time, that's not it, so you are down to CPU or MB and it's pretty rare to get a bad CPU. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
