ASUS A8N-SLI motherboard

1 gb 333 ddr pc2700
512 mb ddr pc2700
2 * 256 mb 333 ddr pc2700
athalon * 2 2 gh prossesor
256 nvideo 6800gt

computer when turned on doesnt beeb
or have any video or hard drive

without memory intalled it does
beeb

so not the cpu

without video card but with memory
it does not beeb

so not the video card

so i thought it must be the memory
but when i tried each memory
module individually it didn't boot
or beeb. One module however did
make the computer turn off a second
after it was turned on.
I left that to one side shall not
be using that again.
I also tried using a different slot
to test but still same result.

This whole thing happened after I
opened up the computer to give it a
dust since it had been smelling of
burning something ever since i got it 5 months ago.

It had been working fine even when
left on for long periods of time.
it couldn't be that every memory module is faulty is my motherboard shot.

Memory controller failure. Board's toast. The burning smell five months ago should have set alarm bells off - any burning smell is not good.

I took it back and all they did was replace the memory and it worked.
Any one got any ideas why all my memory modules got fried.
and is it likely to happen with my new memory sooner or later.
