Hey all,
Last night my computer was folding and this morning i went to wake it up and i moved the mouse a few times and nothing happened. So i thought no big deal, and i rebooted. When it rebooted the screen stayed black and the fans turned on and the hard drives spun up but the screen stayed black and the motherboard beeped 3 times at me. I have no clue what is wrong I don't think it is my ram or my video card because i swapped out my ram for a different stick that wasn't in the computer, and i swapped my 9700pro out for my old 9200se that i know works. None of my compenents were overclocked. I also did a clear cmos and it still didn't boot. Does anyone have any idea what is wrong?

thank you!

my motherboard is a Asrock K7S8XE and the processor is a AXP 2400+

3 beeps, loose ram. The beeps have a code you see, just remove the ram, clean the connectors and put it back in. Simple.

Some common issues have the same beep codes.

Maybe the Motherboard's Manual has something about this beep-code on it.

Did you make your system yourself, or is it a computer manufacturer? If it is a computer manufacturer try calling them and telling them about your promblem.

I have the same motherboard.. mine just died last night wont even post or show anything.. Asrock dont have a beep manual as far as i can tell.. i guess taking your graphics card, processor or anything else could solve the issue.

Check for leaking capacitors. That is normally a ram beep code as Mad_Axe said, but since you ruled that out, and Cleared CMOS, I would start suspecting mobo problems. When a CPU dies, normally you will not get anything. But being its an ASrock, it more than likely hs a AMI bios, and their completely different from a Pheonix or Award.
