When I try booting I get 1 long beep and then 2 short beeps. I googled and it seems to be a video card error, however I tried both my 5850 and the onboard with no luck. Tried DVI and HDMI connections. Anything else I can try or is this a bad board?
yup,1 long beep and 2 short beeps are for Video Card Error.
So check the VGA for proper installation,try removing and reinserting the video card.
If it didn't help then i think its your motherboard's problem.
Wow, I just read through the manual and found the beep code section. Turns out my problem means unidentifiable memory... I could've sworn that my mem is compatible. I'll go 2 microcenter and buy some more RAM and another cpu (just in case).
I don't think that's true,because 1 long beep and then 2 short beeps reports an error for either VGA(most likely) or Motherboard.
So instead of buying RAM and CPU which aren't needed,test it with another motherboard
