Question about AOpen AX4SG Max Motherboard
An ax4sg-un motherboard stopped working. I tried this motherboard just with a processor and memory and the boot led keeps blinking. Then I tried another processor and the boot led blinked two times and the motherboard powered off.Laz.
Do you have any boot devices connected to it at all?
Are you using the correct memory for it?
Are you sure the ram is compatible with the mobo? Try taking all but one stick of RAM out and see if it still does it.
The long beeps tend to point to a RAM problem, or it's possible it can't "find" a hard drive.
Some motherboards support dual channel (you'll see different color slots), and some don't. If you try to put the sticks in dual channel configuration, and the cpu or the motherboard doesn't support dual channel, you may experience this.
If you have different color slots, put one stick in one color slot, and another stick in the other color, or vice versa.
The manual "should" tell you the proper configuration for this, and may even tell you what the beeps stand for.
If you can post the make / model of all the components, I can do the "dirty work" for you and see it if should all work together.

You could try a different power supply, it often happens that the power supply seems fine but is actually missing one of the power source (3.3, 5 or 12VDC)
Also is your board emitting any beeps? if so it is telling you the error code, go to http://www.customautomaticsystems.com/ShowArticle.aspx?ID=54 to see what the error is, if not make sure you have a small buzzer on your board, otherwise you will need to connect a speaker (flat connector with 4 pins long with only 2 wires going to it) directly on the motherboard in order to actually hear the beeps.
Hope this helps

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) Sata make sure they have a secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem
a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust in its socket
if you physically remove your graphics to check the socket card restart your computer this should activate found new hardware wizard
hope this helps
