Sounds like your RAM isn't seated properly or maybe faulty. I've checked for beep codes, and although they differ slightly from BIOS to BIOS, they tend to be roughly the same. Open the case, take out the memory and re-seat it. If you have a spare memory slot, use that one, making sure that the plastic bits on the side have snapped back into place, and are straight.

Let me know if this does/doesn't work

1 long beep, 2 short beeps


This page
http://support.asus.com/pcassistant/pdf/BeepTable_en-us.pdf
suggests hat for Asus systems, 1 long beep, two short beeps is characteristic of a RAM fault. The video card does not determine the beeps, it is the system BIOS of your computer which determines the beep codes (and what the fault is of course)
If your computer is not an ASUS, but some other brand but with an ASUS video card the beep code may mean something different.

How to identify bios


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.asus.com/support/Search-Result/?keyword=A7N8X-VM

Try to download the manual, when the site is up and running again.

Here is a list of beeb codes:

http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

The fault could be all from a bad ram module, to the cpu failing.

Try to renew the power supply, and look for bad caps, on the mainboard:

If the caps look like this, scrap the mainboard.

It does not pay, to let them be changed.

A new mainboard, can be bought for a 100 dollars today, and the cpu also.

Good luck

NO SOUND HEAR


Hi, Do this beeping code for motherboard troubleshooting. First disconnect all memory,external video card, etc only motherboard and power supply. Then power on if you hear continuous beeping means the motherboard working good. Please do this beeping code troubleshooting.
No beeping means Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals. One beeping means Everything is normal and Computer posted fine. Two beeping means POST/CMOS Error. One Long Beep, One Short Beep means Motherboard Problem.
One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps means Video Problem.
One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps means Video problem.
Repeated Long Beeps means memory error.
Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps means CPU Overheating.

The MB do not start


A7N8X-E has a award bios chip on it. are you getting a beep code when you try and post / power on the system.

some common errors.

long beeps or continuous beeps can be a memory error

i suggest reinserting the memory modules make sure they are inserted correctly.

one long beep followed by two or three beeps relates to a video card error

for this i would suggest reseating the graphics card make sure its sitting in the slot correctly.

if you can see bulging or leaking caps on the motherboard i would look into buying a new socket A motherboard it will only cost you around £50 and you then have a years warrenty

i hope this helps !
