Default Lights are on , no body is home

Well, I'm back from a couple weeks ago. How was everyones holiday? I hope it went well as mine is turning into a frustrating experience.

According to page 71 of this manual dug up by hefemeister , the P4A845S V 1.1 uses 133 ram, which I was on the right track. but, putting in the PC 133 ram gives me the same beeps which are confuses. I would hate to keep 'parting' out this computer.

Here is the funny part. With the new ram, I get the same long beeps. Now, with a 64bit chip of ram, the system turns on and begins to purr without any POST beeps at all from the motherboard itself.

So, I put in the new chip. Long beeps. I put in a lower capacity chip, no beeps, no POST beeps and the machine stays 'on'. Any suggestions?

i5 2400 @ 3.10Ghz | 16GB RAM | 500GB + 1TB | GTX 750Ti

on page 68 of the manual it indicates it is either the ram or graphics so i would have to say if both of these are known to be in good working order then it would be the board or at least a socket which is the mystery is it working intermitently and causing more confusion sorry no real answer just more questions for now
