    my son ran memtest+

    after 15 minutes it froze, which leads me to believe its either the RAM or the Mobo.



    any other idea's that may help narrow it down?

You can download an .iso file called memtest+ that you burn onto a disk and run when you reboot your computer. you'll have to make sure you have cd-rom as the first boot device in your bios though.
you can also download the same program to boot from your USB key, if you have one, and just make that the priority boot device in bios for that method.
here's the download link, download whichever one suits you best..

    i had a memory problem before where i took out the ram in the first slot and put the ram from the second slot into the first slot. i just ran a test with only one stick of ram in and it finished fine. all i could tell from that was that there was a problem with the first stick of ram. i'm not sure how comfortable you would feel about opening the machine up, but it worked for me. i never did resolve what the problem was with the dodgy stick of ram, but at least it isolated the problem and it stopped my computer from crashing.

    that's all the ideas i got mate.

    if you do decide to bite the bullet and buy a new stick of ram, make sure the stick with the largest amount of memory is in the first slot before you boot up.i don't know exactly why, but i've read that this is extremely important.

I got a problem with my msi km4m 1 long beep repeating... i re-inserted the memory but the beep still there?


First clean the gold contact points of ur mem card w/ eraser head, and avoid touching it!
When u inserted the mem card try to wiggle it so that the contact in the slot will have the contact will be seated!
Or
Try another mem card, maybe ur mem card is busted already!

When booting up it stops at checking mem


Well your question kind of answers itself, try putting in new memory.

Repeated failure to load Windows 7 HP


Hi.
Foxconn don't have this board on their list of their Windows 7 supported chipsets (which is hardly surprising), but as you state all your individual components should be perfectly OK with Windows 7 .
I suggest you flash the Bios because Foxconn had to produce a new Bios for Vista in order for that OS to run correctly.

Best of luck.

Computer crashes with my RAM sticks both in


First thing i would suspect is a bad ram stick. Here is a link to a free tool you can use to test the ram if you dont have an application for that:

http://ubcdfull.sourceforge.net/

use the "memtest" programs on there.

I know, it works fine with 1 stick, but its a dual channel board so the ram may only fail on 2 sticks, so check it out.

If RAM tests fine, then go for a BIOS update. I have run into some weird things with that chipset in ragards to raid vs mem. Using RAID on that system?

Is your system overclocked? try running it at standard speed. If that fixes it then run at a lower overclock or get better cooling.

If it still doesnt work after all that, see if you cant borrow another processor from someone and try running it with a different processor.

If that is not the problem, try running a fresh load of windows for a couple of days, with nothing but windows loaded. If that fixes it then your problem is software, and will go away with the reload.

If you are STILL having trouble after all that, then its time to try swapping out the motherboard. Hopefully yours is still under warranty. If not, I like Asus boards - as they have a 3 year warranty and are just good boards.

Can't boot, stops right after mem test but before access to setup suspect BIOS chip It's in PLCC socket, need replacement for test thanks


does the post give a audio code before the boot stops..? the plcc chip can be purchased from the manufacturer if they are still available. Does the post stop after the mem test or during..? if during, try replacing or refitting the ram sticks. You could even remove the ram sticks and see if the post continues or if you receive a beep code.if you get a beep code, go to manufacturers website for beep code info. Have you tried to reset the bios. most boards can recover from a bios failure, the boards manual will tell you how to do this if the board supports it. If the plcc has failed, replacing the board may be cheaper and free of hassles. Replacing the plcc is a pain as you must get the correct bios installed. Are you getting the video bios details on the screen ? if no, try another video card. If you are using an on board video chip, try a video expansion card, either AGP or PCIE type, whichever the board supports. If the board only has PCI or AGP, replace the board as it will not have the features for modern software and you will probably not be able to replace the plcc.

Intel celeron 2.13 GHz 64kb L1 128 kb L2 cache. sis FX661 agp. FSB 533MHZ. DDR400. Strangely enough, the memory seem to be under performing greatly.pc3200 mem reports to be working at 2100 speeds. Switch...


to get the full performance out of 533 fsb, you need the next speed up from ddr400. since your ram cant run at 533mhz, it cuts the frequency down to 1/2 of 533, which is 266.

Asrock p4s61, tried 1gb pc3200 to max memory to 3gb, won't boot.


you quote one of your memory sticks as being pc 2700 when earlier in your text you qoute pc3200.

Firstly pc 3200 is 400 mhz clock speed memory.Secondly, pc 2700 is 333mhz clock speed and you acnnot mix the two on the same board. Thirdly does your board support 3ghz anyway. If you are running a board at 400mhz, pc2700 memory will not run at 400mhz.

Solution, take out the pc 2700 memory and all will be well.
