It would really depend on the bios on the motherboard what the beep codes mean.
I checked and all the different bios suggest a memory error which we know is not the ram memory. This is pointing more toward mb memory.

Well sowie to throw a wrench in this process I did put different ram in like a month or so back. Figured it was ok since it was still functional at the point. I could throw the old ram back in and try to power it back up.

new ram is xms3 corsair http://www.corsair.c...3x6g1600c8.html I do know they couldn't tell me if its compatible or not with my PC since its untested but it worked decently well for over a month or more.

Thanks for the info.
I would like to have the base default settings for the system before making tests.
With the power off.
> Clear the CMOS using the JBAT1 Jumper.
> Set the FSB Overclock switches to Defaults. MB manual P#20.
Please make sure that the only hardware connected are, The Boot OS drive, video card, keyboard/mouse, monitor, one stick of old RAM installed in slot #1. nothing else, if you have USB card reader permanently hard wired, disconnect it.
> Boot and enter the BIOS.
> Load Fail-Safe Defaults.
> Save and Exist. If Boot fails, please note any beep codes or screen massages.

Then.
>Run MenTest86, 5 passes.
> Remove the RAM, mark it number one, install the second stick in slot #1, run 5 passes.
If both sticks have passed without any errors. Leave stick two in slot #1.
> Install the number one stick in slot #2, run for 5 hours.

Yes please, pain I know, but with the system set to defaults we have a base to start with. You never know, the system may well boot, if not and the RAM passes, we can rule it out and look elseware.

Ok that's all done went to boot exactly as ya asked above no beep codes windows splash screen came and went and then black screen and intermittent hard drive activity. Would you like me to boot to safemode to run the memtest or not? If ya do I will wake till the hard drive activity has ceased to do that. (Similar to whats its been doing when I've been ask to try some normal booting)

Yes, everythingexcept hardware asked for.

BIOS. yes, Fail-Safe is correct, not performance.
No Beep codes, so looks like all hardware is recognised.
Yes please, carry our MenTest as you proposed.
