Still same problem. Computor wont come on. Motherboard green lite is on.
I removed 3 memory sticks and the video card with same results. I also unpluged each drive one at a time. Still no help. I also unpluged both dvd drives and each fan motor also one at a time.
Do you think I have a bad motherboard or PSU?
PSU is a Thermaltake w0106ru 700w.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

1 Unplug all power to pc.remove case.
2 Remove memory sticks,then reset memory sticks.
3 Verify processor is seated correctly and heat sink is in contact with processor.Did you use thermal paste on bottom of heatsink and top of processor?If not,use some.
4 Be sure processor fan is working.
AMI (American Megatrends International) BIOS Beep Codes. AMI BIOS uses beeps of the same length and pitch. The error is displayed as a number of beeps. For example, 4 beeps indicated a timer failure. BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE 1 Beep (No video) Memory refresh failure Bad memory 2 Beeps Memory parity error Bad memory 3 Beeps Base 64K mem failure Bad memory 4 Beeps Timer not operational Bad motherboard 5 Beeps Processor error Bad processor 6 Beeps 8042 Gate A20 failure Bad CPU or Motherboard 7 Beeps Processor exception Bad processor 8 Beeps Video memory error Bad video card or memory 9 Beeps ROM checksum error Bad BIOS 10 Beeps CMOS checksum error Bad motherboard 11 Beeps Cache memory bad Bad CPU or motherboard
Award BIOS Beep Codes Award BIOS uses beeps of varying duration. A long beep will typically last for 2 seconds while a short beep will last only 1 second. Award BIOS also uses beeps of different frequency to indicate critical errors. If an Award BIOS detects that the CPU is overheating it may play a high pitched repeating beep while the computer is running. BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE 1 Long, 2 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter Repeating (Endless loop) Memory error Bad memory or bad connection 1 Long, 3 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter or memory High freq. beeps (while running) CPU is overheating CPU fan failure Repeating High, Low beeps CPU failure Bad processor
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes Phoenix BIOS uses beep code patterns to indicate problems. In the table below the '-' indicates a brief pause between beeps. Example: 1 - 1 - 2 would sound like BEEP <pause> BEEP <pause> BEEP BEEP

your motherboard is bad. Try the following before RMA'ng it.
1. Remove all the cards and memory.
2. Recheck your power supply connections
3. Remove, clean the thermal paste and reapply new
thermal paste (follow the manufacturer's directions)
4. Reseat the CPU.
5. Install one stick of ram
6. If the motherboard has an onboard video connect your monitor to it.
7. Try powering it up.
If that works, add the rest of the memory a stick at a time. If the system continues to power up, then install the Video card, and test again. Finally if everything is functional, chalk up the previous problems to bad karma. If the system fails to power up, and stay powered up after adding a component, then that is the faulty part.
This is either memory or video related. If the video is built into the motherboard, just add a video card to one of the slots and check it out. If you have more than one stick of memory, pull one out and then the other to test each stick. Also make sure both the video card and the memory modules are seated properly; just remove them and put them back in again.
Thanks and please don't forget to give this a thumbs up rating.
1. Make sure that your computer supports 1Gb on 1 slot.
2. If you touched the chips with your hand you might have BURNED the chips with static electricity from your hands.
3. But before you start panicking check if you have moved the video card, if you did the PC won't show up anything and will halt at start up.
3. One last thing you might do to get the computer booting up again is to remove the CMOS battery for say 1 minute and then put it back in place to reset CMOS just in case. Then plug in your old memory in place turn off replace and try the new one. turn off try install both (never touching the chips on the RAM) and turn on again.
