Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard
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 problem...it is random and intermittent......at 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.......
What about your power supply?

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

Tips for a great answer:
For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:
• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR
• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow
sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and
DIMM_B2 (black sockets)
* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For
optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.
