Question about Computers & Internet
Newly installed motherboard from hong kong...Asus....All it will do is to give a short beep followed by a long beep ....over and over . It will not do anything else .
The short then long beep error is indicative of a RAM memory issue. I had the same problem and had to use a process of elimination to determine the bad RAM. Place a RAM stick in slot 1 one at a time. The RAM stick(s) that give the short-long beep error are bad. If all RAM gives you the error it is more likely you have a bad board

These beeps are used by motherboards to indicate some sort of error or system problem, since they can't rely on video working to display the error.
Since you didn't indicate which bios is installed in your Asus board, i cannot comment for certain what the code means, but on many boards, 1 long and 1 short beep indicates a faulty motherboard.
Check your bios chip and refer to the internet for the error code. In the meantime, make sure your memory chips are fully and properly seated. Remember that the RAM chips can only be installed one way, but if they are installed the wrong way, they can appear to be properly seated. The best way to tell is to make sure the clips on the ends of the sockets are fully seated vertically against the RAM chips.
I suspect you got a faulty motherboard in the first place, but check your RAM chips to make sure they are inserted correctly and fully seated.
