OK, my PSU recently died on me. It was smelling bad and dying slowly i think. i cought it in standby mode, i thought, and turn off my comp. i got a new psu today, installed it and got 1 long beep, 2 short beeps on POST. i'm figuring it is video card error. Reseated video card, same prob. no display just the beeps. Hard drive is active, fans run (cpu and gpu and motherboard and psu). i'm guessing that the motherboard got fried when the PSU went, but why would graphics card be the first signal? Or did it just fry graphics card? i have no other system to test video card on. when i pull the ram and video card and start it, still get the 1 long beep, 2 short beep. I think i'm just going to buy a new motherboard, because i'm not sure what else i can do at this point with the resources i have. any suggestions would be helpful. Asus motherboard, 7600gt video, amd 4400+ x2, thermaltake 480w psu, 1 gig ram (512 x 2), 250g HD, dvd burner/player. and no onboard video available.
