Question about ASUS M2NPV-VM Motherboard
This is a fix that worked for me, however I cannot tell you why or even feel that I had done anything which would constitue this as a fix. I leave my PC on 24-7 and came in one morning and it was locked up. Couldn't get a video screen, not even reset worked so I threw the power switch on the back of the power supply. Turned the switch back on and pushed the power up button. The MoBo started 1 long and 2 short beeps, repeating. I pushed the reset button and same thing. I again turned the power supply off, then on again and same thing with the beeps. So this time I turned the power supply off then also un-plugged the power cord to the power supply. I left it that way for maybe 10 minutes, while I did a few other things. I plugged the power cord back in, turned the power supply back on and hit the power up button. My PC booted up...no problem. ???
Point is - this issue as reported by others may just be a hardware or bios fluke and needs a power reset or maybe even clearing the bios and restarting. Reseating the memory sticks, use just one memory stick and rotate the memory sticks to sort out the possible bad one and reseating the processor may also help.

Tips for a great answer:
if your computer wont boot and is not giving the post noise
one bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps
