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.

Hi. Most motherboard CD's are lost, and this is nothing to fret about. You can find most of the drivers and downloads, and even the manual at the M2N68 page at ASUS' support.

There has been a lot of confusion going on around the net. However I find the driver which should work just fine with your model. However the driver is from HP/COMPAQ and the model is M2N68-LA (Ivy8)

Asus M2N68 SE2 MOTHERBOARD getting continues beep sound and no Display plaese help me

This sounds like you are having POST errors.What you will need to do is have a look at your motherboard manual for a section on POST beep codes. The number of beeps, and the duration of, will determine where on your system you need to check.
A few easy things that you can do are to reseat the RAM modules, to make sure they have a solid connection, and also make sure that you have all expansion slots correctly inserted.
Just make sure when handling the RAM to not touch the gold connections, and DO NOT FORCE THEM IN. There is only one way they will slot in, and you will see the plastic lock-tabs click into place.
As a final precaution, eyeball your motherboard to make sure you have all connecters in the right place(power switch,hdd light etc)
Hope that helps.
Cheers from NZ

I think that either you have a bad power supply or it is not connected properly. I suppose it could also not be supplying enough power.

Try disconnecting all of the connections to the Motherboard and reconnecting them. Make sure they seat properly. Try a new power supply. You can get a good one from
