I just assemblied a computer system using a Gigabyte GA-7VTXE motherboard, rev 1.1, 256 MB DDR memory and a AMD Athlon XP 1700 processor, ATI video card. The system produces three beeps during the POST. This POST code is 64K base memory failure. I have attempted several things. The memory works in another machine fine. I borrowed memory and a power supply from another machine, no change. I swapped in an AMD 800 Mhz Thunderbird CPU, no change. I measured the power supply voltages (off a test board in the machine) and they all looked fine. The only voltage that might be off was the 3.3 volts read 3.24 volts. Using Micro2000 POST Probe (from my work), the BIOS Post Code error is "Chipset Initialization/Auto Detect Memory". Is this a bad motherboard? Anyone have any suggestions as to the problem?
