    When I fitted - I didn't actually attach to the CPU - I just hooked it up to power to see if a new one would run any better. If it did - then I was going to install it properly.

    I could try that - but I did try to boot without any graphics card - just to see if the system would actually try to start - and it doesn't. It doesn't seem to even get that far. It gets some power and then halts...

    Anyway - when I push the power button I instantly get one beep (as I'm pushing the button) and a follow-up beep. From there, I just get a short beep every 3-5 seconds - the same time that the CPU_LED light flashes.

    So, is it a fried board? A fried CPU? A bad power supply? Or a CMOS issue? I've reset the CMOS a number of times, and got nothing. Tried every combination of ram - and unhooked everything and tried to boot just the vid card and CPU.

    What kills me is how it just started doing this. I didn't just build the system and I didn't just add anything.
    Can you please record and upload then post me a link to your error beeps?

    Can you borrow a stick of ram for testing? Or do you have a spare old stick laying around? Any cheap 1.8V DDR2 would be fine, just want to test if it is your ram or not.

    Do you have a old PCI GFX Card, or a older/smaller PCIE one to test with as well? If not see if you can find one to use for testing

    Alright - here's where I am now.
    Hooked a tester up to the PSU:
    +5V: 5.2
    +12V1: 12.0
    +3.3V: 3.4
    -12V: 12.2
    +12V2: 12.0
    5VSB: 5.3
    PG: 310ms

    All seems fine there.

    So, I've unhooked it all and taken it out of the case. It's all sitting on my oak desk now. Got the mobo - my only PCIE graphics card - case speaker - keyboard - the cpu - cpu cooler - PSU - and one stick of RAM in the first slot. Reset CMOS using the jumper. Powering up the board by using the onboard power switch (don't need the case power button).
    When I turn on the PSU - ACPI S4/5 lights up red. (that was typical in the past - I assume it indicates that the PSU has power.) When I press the power button on the board - the PHASE LED's all turn on (6 in total 2 green 2 amber 2 red). The ACPI S4/5 light shuts off and the S0 light goes green. Then the blue CPU_LED starts to flash and with each flash the system beeps. No post - no video. CPU fan still seems slow in speed.

    The only thing I haven't done since I've put it all on the desk is to try each stick of ram individually. I have 4 sticks total to try from this system - previous system was DDR not DDR2 so I don't think I have any sitting around to use. (Question about that - its Dual Channel Ram - don't I have to have 2 for it to work??) No other PCI-express cards in the house and the board doesn't have an AGP slot for me to use an old graphics card on. Need to dig and see if I have an OLD PCI graphics card that I can use to test the graphics card.

    Will do some digging for those parts at lunch.

    if the cpu led flashes its pointing to a problem with either the cpu itself or the cpu power supply imo

    Alright - some new info:

    Got a THIRD PC Speaker (not liking that it doesn't actually BEEP - more like a garbled crack) and tried it. Got the same sound from it as I did the other two speakers.

    Have tried all the memory sticks individually - but don't have any memory for this board that wasn't in it to begin with. No change.

    So, at the recommendation of the local store - I removed ALL the ram. The tech indicated that without ANY ram the thing should REALLY beep and get upset. And it did - and the speaker actually BEEPS when it happens. Of course, it still won't boot - but the board is at least doing something different. S0 stays green, but under those circumstances the DIMM_LED lights up while the system beeps fast (1 beep per second). Old speakers actually beep under this circumstances as well.

    Also, the board does the same thing (nothing and a flashing CPU_LED with a garbled noise from the speaker when it flashes every 4 seconds) if I disconnect the graphics card all together. (just the cpu and one stick of ram)

    Tried two seperate power supplies that both test good.

    Some people have had problems with the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler coming loose. The push pins need to be locked in place.

    but that shouldn't cause the system not to post, should it?
