Default MSI Boot Problems

I have a MSI KT4V.
Just a board I'm messin with. I powered it on and I get 2 beeps then pause then one beep.
I reset cmos, then power on system. The beeps still there. Display says press F1 to enter Bios or F2 to load defaults and continue.
I can enter bios, set everything the way it should be, save and reboot. The computer no longer has display from this point.
I clear cmos again. During power up, I get the beeps again. Display is back with F1 and F2 options.
This time, I press F2, the computer continues to the next screen where it freezes. I hit reset and then no display or beeps.
I reset cmos again. Back to square one.

Parts used are:
AMD Athlon 1800
2 sticks of 512mb DDR333
450 watt power
standard VGA card.

All parts were used before and still used after for testing other boards, so I know its not my hardware.
I went to MSI website and tried there bios recovery procedure, but nothing worked. Can anyone shed some light on this or is it just trash?

If you can find the beep codes for the board, that will shed some light on your issue.
