Question about ASUS P5RD1-VM Motherboard
I have an HP Pavillion a805n with Goldfish2 GB8L (Asus PTGD1-LA) motherboard. It originally had 512 Meg (two 256 DDR SDRAM) and I purchased two 512 Meg DDR PC3200. I unplugged computer and all external connectors, unplugged cord between motherboard and power supply, removed the old chips, installed the new chips in the old slots, and installed the old chips in the available slots. Computer does not boot. Green power LED on power supply blinks and I hear a "clicking" sound. Removed all chips, reinstalled the old chips, same result. No combination of chips results in successful boot. If I unplug the motherboard, the green power LED on power supply is on solid, no sounds. Have I fried my motherboard, and if so, how?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to buy another motherboard and fry that one, too...
When working on computers you have to be carefull to ground your self before touching the inside of them. when installing memory you dont need to unpluge everythinf just the main power cord on the back of it.the blinking green light means you have something no pluged in right,double check everything you unpluged make sure it back in the right areas.on memory the slots are mark 1,2,3,4
make sure if the memory is diffrent in speeds the lagger ons go first.the first to slots normally have to be the same speed and size ram.if that does not work let me know i can look into it for you.
