Strange problem with my computer

Hi all
i have a strange problem with my desktop.....
the configuration is....amd x2 4200+, asus m2nmx motherboard, transcend 2gb ddr2 memory, seagate sata hdd.....
the problem is that intermittently the computer hangs while a beeping sound is heard from the cpu.....there is no specific activity which causes this is random and this time the keyboard stops responding but the mouse is functional for some time after which it hangs too......
the machine works well after switching off for some time......
i have shown to 2 different techs but they thought th problem was software related.......
the comp has been formatted once for this purposebut the problem is recurrent.....
i tried swapping motherboards, swapping ram, checking hard disk for bad sectors, reapplying the thermal paste, cleaning the system but nothing is working.......

The sound is not coming from the cpu, but from the speaker within u're case ... Usually the beeps' appears when starting the computer (as warning from the BIOS, that it found a problem). On the motherboard manual, or at the manufactour's site, u should find a list of what each beep means (shot bepp, long beep, combinations ...) and so identify the problem.

But most probably u have a power issue, perhaps a short between the motherboard and the case, so try to isolate the MB. Or even u can remove all components (power supply included) out of the case, so that no components have contact between them (other the connections needed ), and so u;l know for sure if a short is u're problem (presuming that the power supply is good )

U can also try a BIOS update

Asus m2nmx does not support additional ram in win 7

That motherboard supports up to 4 GB. Make sure that the sticks are exactly the same and are put in the first socket of each channel.

Query about AMD 6000+ Processor

Yes you need to reload if possible the latest drivers for all of your computer components so they will be working fine with this new processor that you have , since the new processor is much higher than the original so it will be better if you can update or reinstall using the latest drivers for all of it...
