8K9a2+ booting problems

Hi, I'm not sure exactly what's going on but when I bought a new computer (A64) I put this motherboard straight away in a non static bag, then when I put it in a new case a couple months later (when I returned home from Uni) for some reason I get stuck on C1 Post (which is the RAM) however I know the RAM is perfectly fine as it works in my friends machine and its had a thorough check.
What I'm getting is that the computer starts then it turns off at Post C1 then I get a continuous High then low beep with about 1 or 2 seconds between each beep.
Could anyone shed any light on this? It was working perfectly beforehand...

My personal experience with C1 is imperfectly installed RAM. That's very likely with a new board since the insertion resistance of the DIMM sockets is very high. What worked for me was to remove the board from the case, place it on a firm antistatic surface (e.g. table top with antistatic bag under the board), then re-install the DIMMs with very even pressure, and finally look along the socket edge of the DIMM to make sure the center is inserted just as far as the ends (view it from the side, not from above). You want to see a consistent amount of contact land showing above the socket.
