Hi, u havnt mentioned the bios used by this motherboard. i searched for the bios on the net, but couldnt find.
the error beeps depends on the bios used by the motherboard. usually 3 beeps(2short and one long) means, the video card is damaged.

Re: Motherboard gave 3 beeps
Hi, it sounds like your Ram was not seated fully the first time and has damaged the contacts. Get another stick of RAM and install that making sure it is fully seated and then try again

First step, pull the RAM (all of it) and see if you get the 3 beep issue again. If you do, install one stick of memory and see if the computer comes on. If not change that stick for another, and repeat untill the computer boots or you have tried every stick of RAM. If you have tried every stick of RAM try a different slot, and repeat one stick at a time. If when you have all the memory out of the computer, it does not do the 3 beeps, then you have a possible power supply issue, or some type of damange to the motherboard. Damage to the motherboard would include but not be limited to; static discharge during cleaing or memory installation. Cable beining lossened during the process (easly fixed by making sure all cables are snug). Resistor or other component lossed or detached from motherboard.
I have included everything I could think of here. If during the steps above you find more information, please provide it and I will try to point you in a different direction.
This POST beep code usually means a RAM problem. Try reseating your RAM module/s and reboot your computer. Try the BIOS setting and check the RAM size, does it match the total installed RAM. If you suspect the RAM is faulty, remove the RAM module/s and take it to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
that's a functional motherboard you got there. The beep that you hear is an error beep for not reading a ram. Yes, you will insert a ram that is compatible with your motherboard. No you can't use that without a video card. If you've got a spare video card put it on your motherboard
Depending upon which BIOS make is installed in your computer, 3 beep means RAM fault.
Check the specification of your motherboard for the recommended RAM.
Reseat the RAM nodules in the motherboard.
Remove the RAM and get them tested at your friendly computer repair shop.
1. Beep codes indicates that there is some problem with your RAM memory sticks installed into your computer motherboard. 2. For detailed information about the beep codes, refer your motherboard user manual as there are different kind of beep notifications for different problems. 3. Try removing the RAM from your motherboard, clean of any dust, replace it back to the motherboard and try starting your system. Repeat the step for atleast 10 times, until your system starts up. 4. If still the problem, persists, try replacing your RAM and try again as this will help us to find out if the problem is with RAM or not.
I hope this is helpful to you. Please rate the solution provided. Thanks
Thats a standard mother board warning...back when i built a few computers i got this all the time it meant "no Memory" or no ram chips were installed or that the memory was not compatible it should just beep three times with about a second delay in between each beep...then thats your problem...your ram might be dead! if it has 3 short beeps and boots up fine it could just be a start up beep i know of older computers beeping quickly 3 times before booting....though ive never delt with asus boards only Intel. but i doubt it would be much different
hope this helps,ben
