hello all,

This is my first post.

Win XP sp3
Asus M2N AMI motherboard
Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor

I was trying to reset my BIOS. I removed the battery for 10 minutes and also did the proper jumper move and back,according to the manual. However, now I don't even reach the BIOS screen. During the POST test I get 2 beeps. I always got one beep (the one for passing the POST) when my computer functioned perfectly, but now after a few seconds I get another short beep. According to the codes I have a:

DRAM refresh failure (Problem with memory)

I never did anything with the memory, so I don't know why that would happen. Regardless I re-seated my memory and my graphics card. Without the memory I get a never ending series of beeps, so I'm assuming the memory is actually being read or something because then I only get the 1 short beep. I made sure the memory was properly in there, so I'm kind of at a loss.

Any ideas?
