Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer wont start up

Today we took the ram out to replace it with another but it wasnt compatible, so we put the original ram back in and now all we get is a flashing light on psu, when we disconnect the power supply from the motherboard the psu light stays on, then we try to connect power cable to motherboard and psu light flashes and no power. could this mean in the short amount of time it took to change the ram over, the mb has shorted out? i have tried all the steps on the hp website, but to no avail, any help would be appreciated.

Nahh, ramstick cant short our a MoBo, the pc wont start and it beebs loud but no more than that, but your hands can do that if you had a lot of static electricity on you when you touched the Mobo.
Therefore always touch some metal before geting inside a pc.

Did you try to pull out the battery and put it back on the Mobo?

Some motherboards are only upgradable to their allotted amount that board may only handle up to 2 gigs of RAM which is a shame. But this is the way it is. That is why I always check the board memory capacity before I buy computer boards or RAM for them. The beeps indicate error on the slots for the RAM that is why you can start up when you remove ram one at a time and replace. So use the allotted amount of RAM for that board specification or get another mother board that can handle more than 2 gigs of RAM. Sorry for the loss. Thanks for using FixYa! John

There is a chance that you ESD and ruined the motherboard. Take all the RAM out and try to boot it and see. Then put one in and boot and then the other. This checks the memory. See if you can get to CMOS setup screen in the bios.

1gb pc2700 333mhz ddr wont work

You may have just bought a stick of gum! This ram could have been sold on e-bay for any number of reasons. It's not likely that you can get your money back. Sometimes even identical appearing ram won't function with original ram. Check with on the web for ram and other computer parts. Good luck!

Everytime i try to turn on my computer it beeps continuously i just installed new ram and a graphics card took them out put original back in and still does it.

The particular issue of beeping continuously is the RAM you need to check if the RAM is correctly installed. Make sure that the RAM you have install are compatible to you RAM slot. It will cause continues beeping and will not display the monitor.

Another thing you should check is the graphics card. Check this also if it is correctly installed. Install also the graphics card installer.

I upgraded to 512mb 144 pin in memeory slot

Take the RAM out. Will the computer boot?
Put the "old" RAM back in. Will the computer boot?

Some laptops are _very_ "picky" as to which 144-pin RAM is compatible.

Did you do your "homework" when buying the 512MB stick, to get compatible RAM?

Dimension 1100 desktop problem after reinstallin ram cards

you may have fried the original RAM by using improper installation techniques (no static provisions) or you may simply not be seating the modules properly, it take more force to put them back than you might realize. RAM is very specific to proper fit (voltages, etc.) Freebie RAM is rarely free.
