Hello! First off sorry for the delay in the update, but there really hasn't been anything to say. I'd tried everything suggested and anything I could think of. In the end I contacted Amazon for a replacement Motherboard, who then sent me to ASUS. ASUS initially replied with some troubleshooting guides, which included nothing that wasn't mentioned in this thread. They then went quiet for over a week until they told me a replacement wasn't an option as the product wasn't sold directly from the UK, but from Germany and that they don't do global refunds (or something like that). I went back to Amazon and they instantly sent me a new one... without me even sending the old one in. So now I have two of the motherboards! Also got a third replacement RAM during this time.
Today I put everything together again with the exact same result. Which leaves me thinking it can only be a faulty CPU or a CPU compatibility issue. Problem is I have no clue what BIOS revision is on the board or what BIOS revision is needed by the CPU. Planning on contacting Amazon for a replacement CPU tomorrow, but considering it took a month to get the motherboard replaced I should have time to try any further suggestions anyone might have.
I know the video card works.
I've tried 3 different RAM.
I have two of the motherboards to test from.
The CPU is still the original.
System still doesn't post anything to the monitor and gives one beep followed by 2 beeps closer together.EDITRequired BIOS Information
, not sure how to find out what the Motherboard is currently using without being able to boot the system properly. Motherboard revision is 1.00, if that gives any indication.
