Phantomize:S I plugged in my old PCI card and it still wouldn't boot, I might head over to my cousins place to check it out.

Did you take a look at those beeps? If it sounds like a siren then it is overheating, so you will have to check all the fans in your PC and perhaps to reinstall the heatsink.

Otherwise I'd guess that it is your RAM which doesn't want to work.

edit: I found someone who seems to have the same problem, sadly he doesn't know a solution either. http://forum.abit-usa.com/archive/index.php/t-47410.html

edit: another person claims to have solved such a problem with replacing the PSU

Register here:http://forum.abit-usa.com and tell them about your problem. It seems that the power unit (or PSU) is often cause for problems with this board. They claim that you should have about 400W to avoid problems.

450W is plenty, maybe your PSU is bad though.

Do you have any other sticks of RAM lying around that you have access to?

Look at this thread: http://forum.abit-usa.com/showthread.php?t=80508#biospost

According to this it's either your PSU or the RAM isn't inserted properly/damaged. There are also some other helpful tips.

I had a stick of 256 ram which was corrupted. So I took the bugger out and left the 512 in there. BUT DAMMIT! It worked last night, how did it die on me overnight?!

Well, one possibility is that your PSU is starting to go out, and in the process is severely overvolting the +3.3V rail. That's an absolutel shot in the dark, but not wholly impossible.

Have you tested the module that's still in it in another machine?

If you don't have another machine, just take the ram out and see what noise it makes.
