    Recently bought a few more upgrades for my machine that I have been having troubles with since I bought the ASUS P4P800 (retail) back in november. This time a new video card and SATA drive. I shelved my setup a couple weeks ago until I could afford some more upgrades and just used my old AMD setup in the meantime.

    I had kingston replace my memory with a nice KHX3200AK2/512 kit (amazing kingston support by the way) from the old kit which was KHX3200K2/512. With that new set of memory coming in the mail I decided to upgrade my video card and HD as well. (see system specs below in sig).

    So since my original november upgrade date of buying motherboard, processor and memory I have since that day replaced/upgraded: memory, video, sound, CPU cooling and paste, power supply and hard drive. Only thing I have yet to replace is motherboard and processor.

    I did not and still do not want to believe my MB is toast because I love ASUS mobo's. Last night once new upgrades were in hand I pulled the setup off the shelf and fired her up. No Post...no beeps of any kind... no video... fans fired up and PS ran. I started yanking everything out bit by bit. Down to nothing but the mobo and power into the PS and prayed for a PC speaker post beep... nothing.

    Any thoughts here? MB toast?

    Thanks again folks

    Try the CPU in a different mobo if possible, if it works than ya mobo is fried, if it don't then replace the CPU. Then if it still doesn't work the CPU and mobo are both fried

    Look around for the beep codes for your mobo, then let us know what that tells you

    3 quick beeps usually means that either the video card is not seated properly or defective or that the memory is not seated properly or defective so there's where ya need to start.
