Board won't boot

Board won't boot
« on: February 01, 2013, 03:47:51 am »
I purchased a new 970A-DS3.  Booted up with legacy BIOS fine.  Then I tried to switch to UEFI.  CLEARLY, I did not know what I was doing.
It locked up, would not boot.  I cleared CMOS, reset to legacy.  Upon next attempt to reboot, I hear a long beep, then 3 short beeps, no splash screen, no boot. nothing!  What next?

Hi there,

usually 1 long beep followed by 3 short beeps would indicate a keyboard error.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
