Hello,
my pc beeps 1long 3 short with the following config:
board: asus m2n32 ws pro
graphic: asus hd 6870

According to beep code tables, there should be a problem with the graphic card or its memory...
But:

I had such a problem before, which - after i failed in testing and diagnosing - i solved by putting the card in my second pcie slot.
today i needed to unplug the card. when i returned it to the 2nd slot it, i got beeeep beepbeepbeep.
the strange thing is that the card works fine in other pcs and my pc works fine with other graphic cards.
i tested ram, too. power is plugged in. i "removed" the dust from the board.tested the other pcie slot.
and have no idea left :(

got any hints, advices?

thanks!
desperately,
stillsen

You probably already checked that out, but is the card fully seated in the slot, with the latch at the end of the PCIe slot clicking in ?
Sometimes with larger cards it's hard to see if it's fully seated.

Ditto to double checking both the PCI-E power connection on the video card.
If above is not source of issue,
Test with another verified working power supply.

hey,
thanks for helping.

this is definitely a huge card and hard to fit. but it fits. double checked it.
and power supply is tested, too. works fine.

so got really no idea.
