Elitegroup P4M800 motherboard boot-up problem

I recently bought an elitegroup P4M800 motherboard, I've got 1024mg of ddr333 memory. When I turn it on it'll get as far as recognizing the hard drive and cd-roms, and it would hang for a few seconds and then shut down. It wouldn't start up again unless I cleared c-mos, and then it would do the same thing. I tried it with an ATI Radeon 9800 video card, and also with the onboard video with the same results. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Dave. I'm not able to get into BIOS so I can't check anything there.

Re: elitegroup P4M800 motherboard boot-up problem

I am assuming you read my other post, so did you notice in the same menu it recognises the hard disk, does the system count all of the memory, if so the memory is ok, remember it will count it in kilobytes so don't look for 1024mb. You know it's not the graphics, although you should be able to get into the bios to check the settings because the post to check drives appear and the proceedure for getting into the bios is before this power on self test.

Upgrade ECS FSB800 memory from 1 GB to 2 GB wont work

This board will support up to 2gb as shown below extacted from the website product page.Don't forget that if you have ddr 333 memory installed originally, you can only add the same clock speed memory, i.e. ddr 333. If you add ddr333 and ddr400 you will have problems as the clock speeds do not match. If you are matching clock speeds, the try bootin the system with the new piece of memory on its own to see if there is a problem with that stick, trial an error of both sticks individually, will give a positive result

Boot-up problem with elitegroup P4M800 motherboard

It could be a memory incompatabilty problem, especially if you only get one beep from the board when booting. You say 1024MB of memory, if this is in the form of 2 x 512MB try one on it's own and make sur that you have purchased single channel memory. Also go to the bios (F2 or Del) on start up and in the standard cmos settings you may need to let the motherboard auto identify your HDD, normally by pressing F12 or similair, look in the menu. Another thing to check while in the std cmos settings is a line normally underneath all the identified drives saying 'Halt on all errors', see if this can be dissabled as it will continue to boot if there are problems without stopping it. If you have a floppy disc fitted it may be looking for that also and havibg trouble, again you can tell the bios not to look for a floop disc. As well a clearing the cmos leave out the battery for 10 minutes or so. Sorry theres a lot to check, but it is difficult to diagnose when it's not in front of you.
