Default Need Help Computer Will Not Start

ok that memory has great timings. the stock voltage is 2.0-2.05V, and i am willing to wager that your mobo doesn't run it that hot on "auto". it's probably 1.8-1.9V or something. so, change that.
also, that ram has a command rate of 1T @ 800mhz, which makes it very unlikely that it will overclock much (if at all) with its stock timings (which are 4-4-4-15). i would raise the voltage first. if that doesnt solve the problem, i would loosen the timings to 5-5-5-15, leaving the command rate at 1T. if that doesnt work, i would then raise the command rate to 2T. your ram is made to be fast without overclocking, so it probably doesnt overclock that well ( doesnt really need to...good job on picking that out).
lemme know how that goes.

So this was what was told to me to do. So I gave that a shot to stop my comp from crashing when I upped the FSB to 230mhz. Under voltage for ram I could only go to 1.95, so i put it to that instead of auto. then instead of command rate at auto I put it at 1T. THen under memory clock frequency it was at autom, changed it to 800mhz. Then I upped the FSB to 225mhz instead of 230, just to be safe and try that out.

NOW MY COMPUTER WILL NOT START! I turn it on and it goes beeeeeep, beep beep. then a pause and does it again. does that about 4 times then gets to the asus m2n-e page that is at the start of every time i boot the comp. usually from there it goes to windows, but now it is just stuck there.

What can I do? This computer I am typing on doesnt have cd or dvd drives, 1.5ghz pentium 4 processor, so it's very critical I get this thing working again. Help, please!

Not sure what that means lol. but what i did was took out all my ram besides the one 512mb stick. it worked with just that and then i tried with more and it would not boot. i restored defaults, and now it is working with another 512 stick, have yet to try the other 2 1 gig sticks. took hours of messing around but i figured out something now.
