    It's actually one single continuous silent high sound and I don't even press the power on button, but thanks for help. So the motherboard could be defect? Could explain the led(not on).

    My tower continually beeps. I have put power supply into back turn on at front of PC all fans turn on then a continues beep noise like an alarm with no further action. I have repeated the same process with no luck. What would this be?

Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem This is usually caused by a problem with the system memory, or possibly the video card. The memory is more likely--the system complains long and loud if it can't find any usable memory, as there is no way to even start the boot process when this is the case. The motherboard itself could also be the problem. hope this helps

    hi again,
    1 continuous beep is definately memory, check your motherboard's manual for compatible memory
    supported by your motherboard
    your motherboard actually takes DDR2 800 try using kingston memory which comes with lifetime warranty sometimes cheap memory modules are not supported by some motherboards
    good luck again

Hi again.... u just wrote me an answer for my power supply surges problems "Hi i just bought an asus m4a88td-m i instaled it with a amd phenom II x4, 500 watts corsair power supply, ati radeon hd...

Ive been playing around with pcs for 20 years. Im not a professional in the field, BUT.. Just booting up, a 250 watt will do it. Now, if you are playing a power hungry game you would expect it to fail then. I think maybe the PSU you have has a problem. So, you should return it and probably upgrade while you are at it. So, same answer.. NEW PSU. And... You do not want to run a system underpowered for any extended time. You can stress any number of components.

With all that power, you need a better PSU, the CPU alone draws out 125 watts, the video card can get upwards of 50, RAM takes it down another 25, and that's half of it right there. I would suggest AT MINIMUM a 700 watt PSU. Newegg has em for you (you sound like you can find what you're looking for after all those specs you've given).
I hope this helps!

Ram assurance

The schematic layout of the P5VDC-MX on the user manual shows that there are 4 DIMM banks, set as 2 X 2 rows, 2 DDR2 and 2 DDR.

The user manual explicity states:

I am running different frequency modules without any problems. With the info above provided by ASUS, it may be possible that a fix could be available with a BIOS update. Otherwise, you can opt to use a lower capacity RAM along with your 1GB Corsair.

Hope this helps.

Your motherboard can take DDR or DDR2 RAM modules.

Crucial says: "Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200,DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot." No sense getting 4GB since the max is 2GB.

You can get higher speed RAM (PC2-6400) because it is backward compatible.

I would go with the 2 X 1GB Corsair from the ones listed.

Or consider the options on Crucial's site. See this page:

Two 1GB modules of DDR2 PC2-5300 run about $34 US.

(PS. Your 450W power supply will handle about anything.)

It is better to use the same brand.
These to brands might work together, you don't know until you put them in your computer and test it.

Need more Watts to run Larger Graphics card & Exhaust Fan

1. Visit this website.
2. In the search field type in: PC Power & Cooling.
3. Press Go.
4. On the left under the, "Manufacturer" menu select, "PC Power & Cooling."
5. Find a Power-supply-unit which will work for you.

One hint, try to find a PSU that has a 20+4 main connector. That way if your motherboard has a 20 pin connector your PSU will be compatible. I highly recommend you buy a non-modular PSU, they are more reliable.

The reason I am having you look at PC Power & Cooling products is because they make the most efficient and reliable single-rail PSUs on the market today. Yes, they're more expensive. However I would rather buy something more expensive than blow up my system with a cheap PSU which will only hold out about a year.

Let me know if I can help you further. (If this solved your problem, please rate the solution.)
