Hey Everyone,

Ill try to make this as short as possible but its a weird problem I am having.

Okay so I shipped my computer through UPS a while ago and when I tried to boot I got the 2 short, 1 long beep problem (video card problem)..

So, I got refunded and I bought myself a new graphics card .. sweet..

So I tried it and I got the same problem 2 short, 1 long.. ARG!

So I was like maybe it was my POS generic PSU, so I got a OCZ 500watt.

Now it boots sometimes? lol. And when it does but and If I am playing games for a while at 1080p it will freeze up. And if I shutdown I cannot restart the computer (2short 1 long). And I have to wait, sometimes minutes, hours, days.. for it to work again. ANNOYED! lol

Anyone tell me what to do.

Im thinking motherboard at this point but I dont want to waste anymore money. UGH


OCZ modstream 500w
ATI 5770
