Missing ram slot

The computer i have wont start up period.(blank screen)I have tested the ram,vidio card,and processor and they all work.So i think the motherboard is dead. Then i looked at many pictures of the board and in every picture there are 3 ram slots. In my computer there are only 2.But i can see where there used to be a slot.Can the missing slot be the problem? thanks!

Re: missing ram slot

I dont think so as it would have never booted before, it is probably a generic manual refering to other motherboards as well. You could be right, either the motherboard cmos chip is faulty if your fan turns and drives flash, or a faulty processor if nothing comes on at all, assuming you know that the power supply is ok.

You don't say if you have tested the graphics card! these have ram on them as well. I would remove the graphics card and try a different (but know working ) unit. Hope this helps.

How I can incease CPU Freq from 408 MHz to 1008 MHz

It all depends on two things;

1) That you can go into BIOS Setup, and change parameters.

Parameters such as;

A) The Front Side Bus speed. (FSB), or
B) The Voltage for the CPU (Processor), or
C) The Multiplier for the CPU (Processor)

Or there may be a Soft CPU option available for the above, in BIOS Setup.

Be aware that overclocking the Processor will also step up the FSB. Ram memory, and expansion slot devices, will cease to work if the FSB is too high. (Front Side Bus,

408MegaHertz to 1008MegaHertz?

That's a big jump. I do not think that processor in this technology age, is capable of overclocking this far. Plus IF it does, will not continue.

Heat will be a Big issue for one.
The pathways inside a processor are based on the nm architecture.
NanoMeter. 1 Billionth of a Meter.

[ Your processor was probably in the 250nm architecture technology. Today's processors are down to the 22nm architecture ]

With too much heat there is Electron Migration. The electrons jump off, or Migrate, from the circuit trace they are on, over to a wrong circuit trace.
Causes the processor to burn up.

Secondly there is also a limit on the performance of a Processor. Asking for almost 2 and a half times the factory setting, is asking for too much.

Plus the Processors are tested at the factory, and sent out. They only have to fall within a rather broad set of specifications, and can be considered okay for the consumer, or computer manufacturer.

The Processor you have may have been on the Bottom of the test range. Even if you have knowledge, of someone else getting this kind of performance out of the same model, it may be that theirs was one of the ones, on the Top of the test range.

Overclocking is done in SMALL increments, THEN tested to see if the computer works fine, over a 24 hour period.


Change the Voltage?
Change in no more than a .2 Volt increment. Then the 24 hour test. Everything's OK? Move up .2 Volts. 24 hour test.

Remember, Ram Memory operates at approximately Half, of the Processor's FSB.
The expansion slots are a lot lower.

Change values (Parameters), such as Voltage for the CPU (Processor) for one, and you change everything.
Too much, Ram Memory, and anything in an expansion slot, will not work.

What Processor is it?
What motherboard name and model number? (Or what computer manufacturer and model number )

My ram is beeping how can i fix them

if 1 beep its - video card
if 2 to 3 beeps - RAM
if it beeps continuously - it the processor

1. (VIDEO CARD)- remove the video card clean it up... you can use eraser...make sure to remove the dust/lint .....

2. (RAM)- If the problem is the ram ... its the same.. remove the ram clean it..the same as you clean the video card...but if you put back the ram to the slot...make it sure to lock it up and tighten up..just monitor it that its not loosen...

3. (PROCESSOR) - remove the processor ... clean the white one i mean the paste
(thermal paste) then if you don't have that paste try to ask the hardware im sure they have one and grab it... don't leave the processor if it is not attach in the slot make sure to have that paste first it has time limit in exposing the processor it may cause a problem if the processor wont put back int the slot.. <the main solution is change the thermal paste then lock it up tightly.. the most important thing is just...lock it up so tight..>

that all...

this is only my suggestions ....

Thanks for rating

What are the parts of the motherboard?

1) Let's start with the 'Brain'. The Processor:

The Processor sits in a Processor socket on the motherboard.
The socket will match the particular Processor that is used.

On the older computers, the different Processor manufacturers often used the same type of processor socket, for their Processors.
As computer technology evolved, the different processor manufacturers started using a processor socket that only matched their particular Processors.

Now only AMD processors will fit in an AMD processor socket.
Same for Intel, and the same for VIA.

2) Ram Memory:
Ram Memory comes in a Module. Often referred to as 'Stick'
The Ram Memory modules sit down in a ram Slot.
Correct computer speak is Bank. Each slot is a Bank.

Ram Memory modules are specific in the number of contact pins on the bottom of them.
(Gold plated contact pins)

SDR Sdram, often just referred to as Sdram, has 168 contact pins. 82 on each side.
(Single Data Rate Sdram {Sychronous Dynamic Random Access Memory)
The bottom of the ram memory module also has Two Locating Notches.

DDR Sdram has 184 contact pins. 92 on each side. One Locating Notch

DDR2 Sdram has 240 contact pins. 120 on each side. One Locating Notch

DDR3 Sdram has 240 contact pins. 120 on each side. The Locating notch is in a different place than the DDR2 Sdram ram module.

3) Expansion slots:

An add-in card is a small circuit board. This can refer to a,

A) Graphics Card, (Graphics Adapter Card, or also known as Video Adapter Card)
B) A Modem Card (Again, > adapter has been dropped off)
C) A Sound Card (Audio) {Adapter has been dropped off)
D) Ethernet Card
Or a number of other technologies used.

The add-in card is inserted into the appropriate expansion slot.

4) Motherboard Chipset:
Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

The motherboard chipset consists of the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

This does not apply to new technology used for the Intel Core i3. i5, i7, and i9 processors ]

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer

The Northbridge chip supports;
A) What Processor is used.
B) What Ram Memory is used
C) High-speed graphics.

{High-speed graphics is considered to be AGP, or PCI-Express. Not a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, nor Integrated Graphics }

The Southbridge chip supports the slower capabilities of the computer.

D) Any add-in card inserted into a PCI slot
E) Integrated Graphics
F) IDE (PATA) and SATA harddrives
G) USB ports
H) Data coming from the Super I/O chip, and it's associated hardware connected to it.

(The Northbridge chip is connected to the Southbridge chip by the Front Side Bus. {FSB}
Think of the FSB as an 'Information Highway'.

Data {Information} is transferred to the Northbridge from the Southbridge, and to the Southbridge from the Northbridge, via the FSB.

The Southbridge chip is connected to the Super I/O chip by the Internal Bus.

Motherboard Diagram;

(CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short. It Does Not refer to the computer as a unit)

This shows a typical motherboard, and refers to the different parts of it,

I invite you to type the following terms in the search box on Wikipedia, and learn more about the parts of the Motherboard, and the technology of the different parts of the motherboard, and the associated hardware that goes on the motherboard,

1) CPU socket
2) Bus (computing)
3) Expansion Card
3) AGP
4) PCI Express
6) Northbridge (computing)
7) Southbridge (computing)
8) GPU
9) Harddrive
10) Sata
11) Integrated Drive Electronics
12) Motherboard
Also click on any word, or term in blue in the page/s, and click on the links at the bottom.

This may help to understand the different parts of a Motherboard, (Mainboard), also,

Memory problem

First pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes.
then open processor fan and processor then clean dust from motherbord and all parts then reconnect processor and its fan.
Then refix RAM memory .
then if it beeps so long then most of it is your RAM problem.slot is more time works fine in that case.

Intel D915GUX Memory Upgrade Problem

You should Know that, none of the 32 bits Windows can detect more than 3 GB of ram. I think, compatibility cam be a fact but dont forget this one.

3 beep sound-no boot

that means a short in contacts on memory slot, or a component on board melting down.
If this happened it is possible that the motherboard is faulty.
If you are lucky the motherboard will read memory on one of memory slots, more likely it wont read memory at all.
Due to the cost of labor required to test and fix the motherboard usually it is worth replacing it rather than fixing it.
A P4 motherboard starts from around $50, on Ebay you can find tested and guaranteed second hands from $20.

PC Won't Start After Initial Post

make sure the ram is the same name of kind. if you can get the old computer on, hit the esc key and go in the bois and hit save, and restart. this should bring the computer back up. check the piggs (jumpers) on the motherboard to see if all are the same, more them around and try each one, I hope this will help you.

Still Doesn't Work

You needed to configure bios (F2) when you first installed the processor,


now the Bios hangs before anything can happen,  You need to remove the Bios Battery (looks like a coin on the mobo) for about 30 secs (with the power disconnected)  then re-insert the battery and power on.


you should get the same power on message as you did the 1st time (maybe with a missings settings error too but this is expected)


Enuro12 is right about legacy USB in that your keyboard should work in BIOS (setup)
