There were a few CLOSE posts...but none like this.
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939

So I built it last night and everything seemed to be going in great. I finished up the install and went for the initial boot. Booted...and nothing. No bios screen...no anything. Then I hear the infamous bios beeps.
1 long beep, 2 short.
I did my research and this is what I found.
Beep Code Description:
1 long, 2 short Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.
So I called up eVGA support desk and the guy who answered reccomended to re-seat the video card. So I did and still nothing...then he said to take out the battery for about 5 minutes to reset the CMOS. Did that and STILL nothing. By that time I had already hung up with him so he could not help me anymore, and by that time it was already about 1am.
So anyhow, I am at a loss. If I remember correctly even when I took the board out and tried booting it gave me the same beep error. I am going to call back eVGA when I get home today and see if they can help me out anymore. If they dont know then I will call ASUS.
Anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Seems like Im not the only one having problems with this MotherBoard.
