    are you using the raid controller to boot off. my asus A7V133 was so slow to cold boot i thought i was having a cold boot problem- it turned out i was not waiting long enough :o

    one day i was doing something and forgot it. when i went to my computer it had booted??!! so i tried it the next day watching it. i waited a bit thought it was not going to boot and then the promise controller detected the hard drive and booted. it turned out i was too quick to reboot.
    sad but true.

    After switching on it just gives the "beeeeep bep bep" noise? After reset it runs? I really know that from my ASUS P3V4X with my ASUS 7700. I had to solve it by Frogmaster's Mod: http://www.btinternet.com/~p3v4x/vr_mod.htm

    And now a friend build a new system with exactly the same configuration like you have: Also Cold Boot Issue. Seems to be a similar reason like with the old ASUS P3V4X, I found a explanation of the error and a Hardware Mod for the Abit KT7A also: http://www.chewan.freeserve.co.uk/

    Did'nt try it yet but I think I will next week...

    After powering up, try hitting the reset switch. Try this a few times, waiting 5 secs before pressing each time. See if it eventually boots up.
