My computer lenovo desktop thinkcentre beeps 1,3,3,1 i chaged the memory RAM but no effect seen it continue beeping at booting process, please help me


Cause

Computer RAM (memory) related issue.


Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards. Information about ESD and proper grounding techniques are found on our ESD help page.


Remove added memory


If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Open computer and reseat memory


Sometimes when the computer is moved or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.


Swap memory location


If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.


If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.


Try another computers memory


If you have access to another computer that uses the same memory, try using its known good memory in your computer.

If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.


Replace memory


If it is determined the memory in the computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.

My computer is damaged idk why but when i startup my computer it turns off and it RESTART...i tried repair my computer and it said that they couldn't find a problem...is it a VIRUS or a COMPUTER ERROR?...


There are a couple steps you can take to find out if you are not afraid to open the computer.

Open the computer and find the memory sticks. Remove all of them, if there are more than one, and try starting the computer. Be sure you are touching the metal on the case before you remove them or replace them to remove any chance of static shock.

If you get beep codes your motherboard and powersupply are working.

If you do get beep codes put one memory stick in and try again. If you only have one stick try that. If it still does not work move the memory stick to a different slot and try again.

I had a similar problem with another computer with bad memory.

Windows 7 does not require 4gb, that is the recommended level for windows 7 ultimate. Does this happen with any programmes or specific ones? also, do you have a seperate graphics card or is it built onto the motherboard?

Dell vostro 400 2 beeps in bios post test


Hi...

The cause of beeping is the memory problem. maybe the memory stick is not inserted correctly. If your memory stick will not correctly inserted it will damaged the memory slot. Try to use the other slot, if the same thing happen. You memory slot will be damaged you need to bring you motherboard to the computer repair center. Ask first how you will pay, if the labor cost is high. its better to buy a brand new motherboard.

Regards.

Either your memory sticks are bad or, you have too much memory in the slots. Computers can accept a lot of memory but they can only recognize a certain amount. Make sure you don't have too much.

How do I tell me emachine T5212 to recognize newly installed ram?


The Ram specifications for your model are:
1024MB DDR2 (2 × 512MB), 533MHz (PC4200)
Expandable to 2GB

If you are using Microsoft Windows, the operating system will recognize the memory by itself, there is nothing you have to do. Go to your start menu, right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties". In the lower right corner of the "General" tab, you can read the amount of memory available to you.

If you want to know how to put RAM into your computer, have a look at this web page - it's a good video instruction. Make sure not to touch any of the electronic parts on the stick itself - try to hold it on the side.

If your computer does not recognize the newly installed RAM it can have different reasons:
  1. The RAM is bad. Nothing you can do but send it back and get it replaced.
  2. You got the wrong RAM. Look at Crucial's webpage (link) and compare the specs with what you've got. They are very reliable and the memory I bought from them always worked.
  3. It is possible that you have to install the RAM in pairs. (eMachine's web page (link) has no download for a manual and does not cover this topic.) It means, that either both memory slots have to be populated or even populated with the same kind of sticks (2 x 512MB, 2 x 1GB).
Solution: try to replace one of your old sticks with the new 1GB stick and see if that increases your memory. If that doesn't work, take both of the old sticks out and put the new 1GB stick in the slot closest to the CPU (look at the video: it's that unit with the fan on top). If that doesn't work either, try the other slot.
Last resort would be to contact eMachine. You can either use LiveChat or call them. The contact info is on their web page.

If all fails, come back here and leave a comment including what you did. I will check back and then we go from there.

Good luck!

My computer crashes now and then... Tends to happen alot when im playing a pc game? It makes this loud screeching noise when it freezes i am forced to shutdown manually


Your Memory card is the problem.

Try this steps:

1. Remove added memory
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

2. Open computer and reseat memory
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

3. Swap memory location
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

4.Try another computers memory
If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer. If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.

Blank screen(beeping sound)


Hi Powee,

It's definitly a memory issue. What you might wanna do, is open your CPU and take out the memory sticks from the memory slots. After this, try either blowing or vacumming (if you have one of em small PC vacumm cleaners) the slots whcih contained the memory sticks. Also, dont forget to blow off any dirt that might be on the memory stick(s) itself.

After this, just insert the memory stick(s) back into it's slot(s) and try to rebppt your computer again. Most of the time it should work. However, if you still face this issue, then it means that your memory itself is corrupt and you might need to buy a similar capacity memory altogether.

As a side note, if your computer comes from a manufacturer like dell or acer, you might wanna get them to look into the issue if it;s still under warranty (or even if it's not). Certain "branded" computers have their own way of functioning. Hope this helped.
