RichyRich Posted September 21, 2010 Share Posted September 21, 2010 First post, sorry for it to be a question rather than help but here goes. I have Corsair CMD4GX3M2A1600C9 2x2gig in my Gigabyte 870A-UD3 Mobo and it just continuously beeps in the same pattern. 3 long beeps, stop, 3 long beeps, stop, 3 long beeps...you get the idea. This is the first time I am staarting it up, the whole build is brand new, hard drives are not the issue, no dvd-rom device at all. I do not think its anything with the setup, at one point I was able to get post and begin loading the OS, however, upon installing XP, it got hung at 39 minutes left. Needless to say I let that sit there for 39 minutes, it didn't change. I unplugged it, guess what, 3 long beeps, pause, 3 long beeps, pause, so guess what, I did more reading and more troubleshooting, I've read that 3 long beeps is either a keyboard error or a memory error. I've used only one stick, although my dominator ram dual channel states that I must have 2 sticks loaded for it to work in channels 1 and 3 or 2 and 4 which I have tried every config. with no change. I also read someone saying that a bent pin caused this issue on the CPU so I removed the heatsink and the f'ing CPU came out with it so I have to get thermal grease, split the cpu from the cooling fan and then redo it. That is where i stand now. I have a 750w Corsair PS... .I really don't know what else it could be and I'm getting hella fustrated. Any ideas/solutions would be greatly appreciated.
