WAS THE POWER SUPPLY WORKING? IS THE 4PIN BLACK AND YELLOW CONNECTOR FROM POWER SUPPLY IN PLACE? DID YOU TRY BIOS CLEAR? IF IT IS NOT A NEW BOARD - CHECK FOR BLOWN CAPS AROUND CPU (UPRIGHT CYLINDER TYPE THINGIES. RESEAT RAM. CHECK IF MAYBE ONE OF 24 PIN ATX CONNECTOR DIDN'T PUSH OUT OF SLEEVE.

Hi. Do this solution first in the motherboard only processor installed need no memory.then power on your PC.if your motherboard no continues beeping.that need replacement of parts specially capacitor leakage,became big or burn parts. See beeping code.
Beep Code: Description of Problem:
Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals
Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine
One Long Beep, One Short Beep
One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps
One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps
Three Long Beeps
Repeated Long Beeps
Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps
the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off. make sure that your RAM is securely seated try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATAthe ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ? hope this helps
Put just the ram back into the motherboard, the pc will not boot without processor, ram and graphics pluged into the board, check this, if it will still not boot and you still get 3 beeps its a memory(ram) problem, and you will need to replace the memory stick.
take it easy. any thing in its time.
first take out all you have entered in pc case.
second dissasemble any part and reassemble it again out of case sure. ( only cpu , ram and vga card). try it inoutside the case is booting your Mb with ram, cpu and vga that you have entered or not?
if yes put the Mb in his place but do not conect another peripherials (like hdd cd rom etc). prove again is Mb booting with ram , cpu and vga or not?
if yes connect another peripherials and continue with system operating installation.
if yor Mb isn't booting from begining then check whats wrong ram or vga or cpu?
(for this you need another component like it).
if it is booting outside and not booting inside case put a thin plastic film under MB in contact with case, because you have a shrt circuit elsethere and proceed after that with the rest.
I would start by clearing the CMOS with the reset jumper pin on your mainboard. Then remove all the PCI cards excluding the video card; disconnect the hard drive as well. Boot the computer without the RAM and see if you still get the "F post code." If not download a copy of Ubuntu Linux and burn it to a CD.
Reinstall the RAM modules and boot to Ubuntu from the CD and run "System Memory Scan" from the Ubuntu Boot Menu. I'm guessing your RAM over-heated and is permantly damaged. Only the manufacturer knows what the error codes for your board represent; it'd email them from this support link... EPoX Support Contact
Hi Conor, every SATA drive is a master drive. With that in mind you're SATA must have windows installed on it. Please disconnect the data cable & power cable's from the IDE drives.
(Do not reconnect either IDE untill you have finished).
Install windows on the SATA drive. Install all the needed drivers, than update windows. When finished Check the pin setting on the IDE drives. Set one as the "master with a slave" & the other as the slave. Than you can add both into the system. If you had windows on one of the IDE's just delete the root files on that drive so it does not conflict with the new windows on the SATA drive. Go in the bios make sure you have the SATA drive as the boot drive & not either of the IDE drives. If the system still shuts down after all this, try replacing the data cable for the IDE drives (Both should be on the same data cable). Swap the power connector from the CD-ROM drive to the IDE.
Next, if you're system still shuts down after adding either of the IDE drives, than swap the ports. Connect the CD-ROM to the primary IDE port on the board & the IDE hard drive to the IDE slave port. (This is for testing only). Double check all power connections from the power supply to the motherboard. Leave the case opened. Look at the board when booted. Watch for the the case LED's lighting up & flashing cr-rom's LED flashes, look at the CPU fan. Make sure all fan's are running & listen for the drives running.
Let me know if anything changed or not. Post any thing odd or if any thing did or didn't work & I'll go from there. Everything is a test & error soulation. One change at a time.
Check the cmos reset jumper and check the case switch then.. I would look on the jumper positions for the case and short the PWR SW to see if the case switch is messed up. Then make sure to check all the peripherals.. remove them and re-install... make sure the memory is set in properly. Try to boot without any drives plugged in to see if any drives might be bad.
First of all, your hard drive is what this computer needs to boot up. Try to see if you can POST, that is, only plug in power supply to motherboard with cpu and memory in there. Don't put any hard drive or other device into motherboard as yet. see if it reaches past post. If it does, then plug in hard drive and see if the problem occurs again. If it does, then the problem is the hard drive. But for now try reaching past post with only the bare necessary components for startup. Then let me know what happens.
