My motherboard will give me the long beep plus 2 short beeps (Award Bios) 99 out of 100 times I restart it. So I literally have to restart it over and over again until it magically works and says it's in "Safe Mode". (Not windows safe mode, but hardware safe mode). I realize from looking it up that this particular beep means it cannot display a video out (which is painfully obvious). If my computer works 100 percent the 1/100 times I can get it not to beep, what is really going on? I'm having to never shut down my computer because i will have to spend an hour trying to get it back. I've tried air dusting all the sockets and reconnecting everything. It's not like when I get the computer to work it crashes, so I can't say I have a faulty video card per say...
Any help will be appreciated, this is the one major problem keeping me from enjoying my first custom build.
