    Default EP45-UD3R POST Beep codes - Wrong in manual?

    Hello,
    I recently received a GA-EP45-UD3R motherboard and installed 2 Crucial Ballistix 1 GB chips in it. After installing the other computer parts and trying to boot-up, I got continuous short beeps (24 in-a-row?). According to the manual this means a power error. I purchased a new power supply, no change. Through the process of elimination, I found that one of my memory sticks was bad. The supposed POST beep code for memory error is 1 long beep, 1 short beep.

    Why didn't I get the proper bepp code? Is the manual wrong or can bad memory give this power error beep code?

    Thanks.

    Yes, a short-circuited memory stick can bring down to zero the DDR voltage so the error code refers to this worst condition.

    It will also happen if you have incorrect ram settings. I have done that exactly in testing Crucial's this week

    Incorrect MCH latch, Or to low of a Static tRead, or inproper voltages will cause the ram to fail and this beep code will be heard.

    Please insert one stick and set your voltages and raise Static tRead and see if that fixes it for you for now. If not raise MCH and reset Memory mutli and try again

    And of course, yes it could also mean a dead stick or two, can you test them in another system?
