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.......
can anybody guide me in this matter.......

Re: strange problem with my computer

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

Hi vinayan092, The Asus website still do not have the audio driver for this model, try installing the windows Vista driver on this link, if you have installed this successfully, you can try to check in device manager if windows detected this successfully.

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.
