Question about ASUS P5B-E Motherboard
I refer to the problem I posted yesterday:
"Using an Asus P5B -E Plus motherboard for 2 years now with no problems. But when I boot up my computer now i get 1 long beep followed by 3 short beeps and no display on my monitor. I have to reset the CPU to get the same series of beeps, but then I will get the display back and the computer will boot up normally. However, it seems I can no longer run the game I play properly, World of Warcraft. I get stuttering, cracking sounds and very bad frame lag when I try to tab out of the game. I am unable to pinpoint the problem I have presently and need assistance. If possible please explain step by step as I do not have alot of experience or knowledge on troubleshooting my CPU."
I have since reseated my graphics card twice to no avail. I still get the same beeping from my motherboard when I boot up. However, I noticed that this problem only seems to affect the game World of Warcraft. When I run Half-life 2 or Left 4 Dead for example, they run smoothly like before. I'm at my wits end here and need further advice.
If you are hearing the code right. 1 then 3 you can have a cpu bad or bad memory, remove memory or find (borow) new. try that, also try a new battery Time error. Then start from scratch - take everything loose from the board nothing but the board, one stick of memory, no hard drive, no video card, if you get the same code your cpu is going. If you get different code try the video card if you get the old code thats the problem. Clear as mud? Yep clear as mud.

Thanks for using FixYa!
Its possible that the problem that you have right now has something to do with your memory modules. If you have several memory modules. try to take them all out then add them back one by one. this process will isolate any bad memory module. Also, after you take out your memory modules try to clean the gold contact points with pencil eraser. This will take out that static build up from your memory modules.
I hope this helps. I hope you get to play WoW now.. i know the feeling of not being able to play my toon. Have a nice day.
