Intel DX58SO -- 3 Beeps?

My setup is:

 

Power Supply Echo Star- output 450 watts

 

Intel Core i7 920 Processor

 

Intel DX58SO Socket LGA 1366

 

Core i7 Dominator 6GB DDR3 RAM

 

1 TB Hard Drive Hitachi

 

DVD RW-ROM Lite On

 

GE Force 512 MB Video Card

My problem is the monitor isn't working at all and I get the three beeps. I have re-installed the memory (RAM) twice and I still get the three beeps. Any ideas?

Try putting one Ram mod. in channel a dimm 1 by it self you may have a bad connection in channel dimm O , I had a simalar prob and I did this the board would POST but it just told me I had a bad conn. in that Ram slot I still had to RMA the board , But at least it helped me narrow down the problem .

I did that two times before, no change. I bought the new RAM one day ago, we'll see. Thanks for the help, appreciate it.

This may (or may not ) help. Most of the stuff to look at is the dialog between Igor and me. I had a single, out of alignment pin, in the cpu socket that fouled me up. Good Luck.

I'm stumped. I bought new Kingston RAM yesterday, no change. I'm guessing I need to go a computer store.

I found the problem with the RAM. I'm set on the RAM.

Where is the CMOS on the BIOS? I need help setting it up. I switched the RAID into my BIOS.

Thanks alot.
