After restart motherboard beep 3 times

I have a Asus M2N-E and a few weeks ago after I booted the system up and loged on to windows and the monitor started to to go on and off thinking at was the the video card I bought a nvidia geForce 9400 gt 1gb ddr2 1x dvi + x vga after installing it and booting it up it worked fine but after restarting the system it started to beep 3 times. after turning the switch off and wait 5 minuts the system boots up fine but if I restart the same problem repeats. I brought it to a technition and he told me that it was the video card but i told him that the card was new and when it does start, the system works with no isues. Please help because I have checked ram evrything exepct the power adapter.
Is at possible that theres not enough power to bootup the card?

With the award bios 3 beeps usally indicates the video adapter (1long beep 2 short beeps) So one question for clarifcation.
Did you replace an older vid card that was having this problem with the 9400 or was the 9400 card the only card in this system?
If the 9400 was the only card ever in the system I would say RMA the card. It is very possible for a new card to be defective. If you where having the same issues with an differnt card as well You Should goto http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us and update your bios to the latest version.
If you still have a problem after updating the bios then I would RMA the motherboard.

Hope this helps and let me know how this turns out.

Merry christmas:
Sean

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.
the grrr is the sound its not getting enough power
test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if the fan is not working the PSU is faulty
One bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the 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 ?

No beeps or monitor signal


Sure, a motherboard can be a dud out of the box like any other part. If you have a known good power supply, processor and memory installed, and the machine doesn't boot and you have no video, the only thing left is a non-working motherboard. Return it to the vendor and get it exchanged as defective.

The flash memory don't work in windows vista please help me if ther is any new driver for this


Hello mohamadg, you need to clarify your question. Flash memory looks like the memory shown on the site below; (Click on the link).
http://www.flash-memory-store.com/?gclid=CPOWldW-2pgCFQu-GgoduVWOeA

(I think your question pertains to system memory)!
System memory for the Asus motherboard looks like this;
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1554&SRCCODE=WEBGOOMEM&cm_mmc_o=mH4CjC7BBTkwCjCECjCE

Your Asus motherboard can only function with, DDR2-800MHz / 667MHz or 533Mhz (Only). Dual channel 4x240 non-ecc memory. You can run up to 8 GB max of memory. If the system memory you are currently using does not match the above type & speed, your motherboard will not function. You will hear a series of beeps during start up of the system. These beeps are known as bios beeps. How many beeps (Including long beeps & how many short beeps you might hear) will tell you what is most likely wrong with your system memory. (See the next link for the Award bios beep codes);
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
Dual channel memory should be bought in pairs & not as a single stick/DIMM. Do not install more than 2GB of system memory until windows has been completely updated through (Windows Update Services). Once Vista or any version of windows has been fully updated you can increase your system memory. You can not mix memory speeds & type. If you are using 533MHz memory, & you want to increase the total memory to be used, you must match the memory speed of 533MHz. All system memory must be the same speed & type. See page 2-10 in your manual. Running two different types of memory may not give off bios beeps & the system may not function at all.
For drivers, click on the Asus link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Once the link opends, type the model number M2N-E SLI into the search window located in the upper right hand corner of the link & than click the white arrow. In the next link that opends click on, "M2N-E SLI related files for download". Another window will open. Click on the dropdown menu & choose your operating system & click search.
All drivers, manual, bios files, bios utility, CPU supported & FAQ's are listed there.
FAQ link for Vista; http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N-E%20SLI&product=6&os=24
This last link shows the memory tested to work with the M2N-E SLI (Green) motherboard;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&product=1&model=M2N-E%20SLI&type=map&f_type=34
If this has not answered your question, please let me know.

Thank you for using FixYa mohamadg!
