PC not booting :(

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi,

Im running a athlon x64 3800+ processor with a 550w psu, 2x512mb starram ddr cl3 400mhz ram, ASUS ga-k8nsli mobo and an ASUS nvidia en8600GT vid card.

I pressed the power button on my pc it turned on with both green and red at the same time, green stayed on red did not flicker once other then when first turned on. i have tried another PSU, no difference. i removed all my ram no beep sound tried ram in all different slots still nothing. i put 1 stick of ram back in and removed the gpu and i got a long Beeeep bep bep in one long note with those intervals. i get no POST beep on start up either..(disconnected all drives and data to the drives and only had PSU keyboard monitor audio plugged in (even though i remember beeps do not go through an amplified speaker but the inbuilt speaker). tried resetting BIOS by removing battery for 5 minutes. im sorry to bother u guys ive read all the topics i can to fix it.. jus narrowed it down to the mobo or processor i guess.. jus need to know which one it is and if theres any way i can test which is fried. When on ALL fans are spinning (CPU GPU PSU and extra external fan). thanks alot

It appears that the GPU is your problem.
The fact that you get error beeps with it removed is the clue. The beeps mean that the motherboard/CPU is working. With the GPU inserted the motherboard is not working, so the GPU is defective or not installed properly..

I agree with aegis. If it beeps with the GPU removed, but not with it installed no matter if there's RAM or not, you could bet on the GPU being a possibility.

What brand is your PSU? Just because you may have a decent wattage power supply, doesn't mean it's any good. Let me go a step further and say that just because you've tried another power supply doesn't mean you can rule the power supply out. If you tested the PC with another power supply that has a low wattage or is made by a cheap brand, it still could cause the system not to boot.

The processor rarely fails. You do hear of processor failures once in awhile, but they're more common with the old slot types.
