  1. I Need help! Blank screen and two short beeps

    Motherboard:Asus P5N-E SLI
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo processor
    Graphic Card: Geforce 5200 pxi graphic card
    Case: Raidmax Smilodon
    Ram: Kingston Valueram 512 mb 667 DD2



    I recently brought the P5N-E SLI motherboard from newegg. I been having problem getting it to boot or show something on the screen. I'm using a geforce 5200 pci graphic, 500 walt raidmax psu and case, and Kingston valueram of 512 mb that runs at 667 mhz DDR2 ram. Everytime I press the power button the fans would start on the cpu and case. After a few second I would get one short beep. Two seconds later I would get another short beep.

    your Flavor of BIOS on that motherboard shouldn't be making just one beep....

    the AMI BIOS with one beep means bad ram.

    Hey you edited this since I read it first..... here's beep codes

    Sorry...I already figured out what was wrong with the motherboard. It wasn't the board but the graphic card which is busted.
