Re: 8 beeps
EDIT: I've done what the instruction in that thread (Found other thread design for M14x as well but the instruction is same so I use this one) said and unfortunately it doesnt seem to work for me, because it said wait for the beeping to stop and it will auto boot, but for me when I do it, yes the fan power up to the maximum but I didnt hear any beep so I leave it for like 3-4 hours and it still not beep or anything so either I might have done something or the BIOS is completely corrupt.

Re: 8 beeps
my first R3 from the factory had 8 beeps and never turned on. they replaced the gpu, heatsink, mobo, keyboard and it still didnt work. i ended up getting another brand new one from the factory and its been a dream ever since. I got 5 beeps when i swapped out my gpu, but a bios reset fixed that. Runs great now. never new why my first R3 was a lemon.M17x-R3 Black / i7 2960XM / 16GB Kingston Hyper-X 1600Mhz / Radeon 7970M / 1.5 TB Raid 0 / 17.3-inch 1080p 60Hz WLED / Bigfoot Killer N 1103 / Blu-Ray / Win 7 Ultimate
