Hello everyone! I'm kind of new around here and since the forums I usually lurk on are either shut down or hard to post in, I decided to jump over to see how this community is. Anyways, I just recently built a new AM1 system and when I went to boot it up, only the fans and LED's came to life, no display, no single post beep. Now this is a pretty simple build. Case, PSU, Mainboard, CPU and RAM were the only parts I used. So I decided to do a stripped build (Took the MB out of the case, put another 600 watt PSU off a bench that I know works and hooked all that up to the mainboard which is spec'ed with the same single memory module.) Turned it on with the same effect. Now, if I remove the RAM, the computer beeps 3 times and then stops, which I'm pretty sure indicates no memory installed. Not being too experienced with failed builds (built about 15 machines in my lifetime and all but one worked), does this sound like incompatible memory, a bad board or a bad processor?
