    I have a P6vem3 mainboard and everything seems to work but the monitor will not come out of standby.
    I get a post code of E9 and I have seen EE pc analyzer. I put in another vga card, but
    the same thing happens when the computer starts. It gives a single continuous beep.
    Should I replace the power supply, I'm not sure what to replace it with. Or should I just buy another motherboard?
    Please help,
    Thank you

    It sounds like a issue with the memory. If you have the mainboard manual see what a long continuous beep means. more then likely its bad memory so try to buy new RAM if that dont work buy a new mainboard

    I will buy a mainboard I have purchased more memory already. So hopefully I will be backup and running soon.
    Thank you.
