Hi krusty_623.

If this is new RAM, you might want to try removing the battery from the motherboard, resetting the CMOS (clears out all the old hardware settings) and putting the battery back in so that the motherboard redetects the RAM as if the setup was brand new. I've had the same problem only once on a RAM upgrade and it baffled me. Once I reset the CMOS the motherboard accepted the new RAM without any problems. I don't know if this will work for you, but it's a simple thing to try.

Put just the ram back into the motherboard, the pc will not boot without processor, ram and graphics pluged into the board, check this, if it will still not boot and you still get 3 beeps its a memory(ram) problem, and you will need to replace the memory stick.

One long beep tone---NO Display on monitor(monitor checked ok)


Definitely not your monitor. It is either a CPU or a Memory problem, is this a new build or did an existing computer suddenly start doing this?

Is that your motherboard, the Gigabyte 7VM400M ?

Gigabyte k8m800-8237 won't boot with 2nd gig ram installed.


Could have been dusty. Find a copy of Memtest and run it to check things out. Errors could mean a bad stick or bad slot.

Monitor is not on


Im gonna take it that "yup i'm hear the any beep" means you do hear a beep.

So first If it has an onboard vga card. remove the second vga and hook the monitor up to the onboard and try to boot.

Second try the Power Supply, make sure whatever power supply you use has enough to handle all the equipment in the unit.

If those two don't solve the problem, then you have a bad motherboard.
