Comp won't boot after installing new ram. possible motherboard problem?

I had a 512 MB ram stick installed and I got a new one. i put the new one in the second slot and when i turned the power on, the fan came on, the red light on the motherboard came on and it made these long beeps. my monitor wasn't getting a signal. i removed the new ram and tried again, but it still wouldn't boot up. i really hope i didn't short the motherboard out.

Try emoveing both sticks and blowing into the ram slots then replace 1 stick at a time. if this dose not work try checking all the cables to make sure nothing got knocked out of place when you installed the memory in the first place. (bleeping sounds can mean a lot of diffrent things if the problem carrys on count the bleeps and look on google to see what that number of bleeps means for your motherboard) hope this helps

What would happen if you put ram into your motherboard while it is on? I have a g31-m7 te MotherboardVersion 6.5 and in My Wonderfull Stupitity, tried to insert a 256 mb stick of ram while the computer...


Yes, that is very dangerous for your components. Power should always be off and disconnected and you should have anti-static wrist strap or be grounded before handling the components.

It is very possible you toasted your ram and maybe damaged your motherboard. Try plugging in only one of your RAM sticks. If it will not boot, or gives BEEP code swap it with another if it is paired RAM.

If it boots up great, if you get BEEP codes, read the error message out of your user manual for your motherboard it will tell you where the problem is detected.

You may end up replacing both memory and motherboard. And possibly some other components as well depending if you melted any solder or fried capacitors.

The RAM stick you bought is either incompatible with your motherboard, or it is a lemon from the factory. Did you perhaps buy this RAM off of ebay or other such site? Make sure to buy RAM online from online vendors like,, and Too many super-cheap parts coming from china being sold on certain sights. Buyer beware. If you can, send the RAM you bought back for a refund.
I'd like to tell you what kind of RAM is supposed to be in your motherboard, but you didn't list the model of the motherboard. AGP 8x is a type of standardized slot for video cards that they put on motherboards. It's not the name of the motherboard itself.

I am wanting to upgrade the ram on my mothers computer. She has a Phillips Intel pentium 4, cpu 3.06GHz. Can anyone tell me what type of ram and how much it will hold?

Access the Phillips web-site, and do a search, based on the model-number, to see what type of RAM (DDR, DDR2, DDR3) is supported, and what the largest size per stick of RAM that the motherboard supports, and to see how many slots for RAM exist on the motherboard.
Open the case, to count the number of installed sticks of RAM,
and to count the number of empty slots for RAM.

Or, just take the computer to any computer-store, and have them open it up, do the counting, and do the research on your behalf. Then, buy the RAM from them, and they will install it, usually for free.

Asus M2V890 motherboard supports max 2GB memory per specs. Is there any way to increase this, or am I stuck with 2GB?

2GB is enough for the MB you are using, if there are no more slots on the MB then you cant increase them.....every slot has a MAX limit of RAM card that can be installed, check the MB specification....i guess 1GB per slot is the 2 slots...2GB

Installed new ram-went from 2 512 sticks to 2 1g sticks, the comp wont boot, only the fans come on, no lights on the power button or signal to the monitor. I put the old ram back in to see if it would...

dose the ram have mem chips on both sides of the ram stick, sometimes this causes the problems, i would sugest that you clear the Cmos, maybe take out the bios batterie and leave it unplugged for couple of hours, plug it back in and see if the old ram works ok, if it dose then maybe try the new ram maybe one stick at first.
good luck.

Constant beeping while attempting to boot up

There is probably an issue with the RAM. Take the RAM out and put it back in see if that fixes it. If not then take it out and if you have 2 sticks of RAM put only one in at a time to see if the computer will boot on either stick. If that still does not work then most likely either all of your RAM is bad or there is a problem with the motherboard.

Your laptop can have up to 1 GB of memory. You should have two slots and you can install 512 MB per slot. Your laptop is using 200 Pin DDR PC2100 266 MHz CL 2.5 SODIMM. You can also install PC3200, but your laptop will clock it down to 266 MHz.

Problem with boot

is your jumper setting in your cd drive correct? during boot up, does your computer detects your cd rom drives? cd rom drives must be in slave. Check also your ide cable, be sure its not connected reverse.
