Re: 845 GVSR MB
If your RAM was bad, it should beep with it installed. Chances are, if your RAM is compatible with your motherboard, then you need to reset your BIOS. You may want to check your motherboard manual for instructions, but typically it goes like this: unplug the power cord, remove the small round battery from the motherboard, find the proper jumper (little plastic piece of metal prongs) and move it to the proper prongs to reset the CMOS (BIOS). Then, move the jumper back into the proper position, put the battery back in, plug the power cord back in and reboot PC. You should be prompted then with a CMOS reset screen. Some motherboards have alternative methods to resetting the BIOS, so if that does not work, then you will need to consult the manual. If this does not fix your problem, please let me know what type of RAM you are using, and whether or not it is newly installed, or if it is the same RAM you have been using. Hope this helps :)

Fix for older motherboards like Intel 845GVSR etc.,
HERE IS THE SOLUTION FOR FIXING DISPLAY PROBLEMS.... (This solution works for any Intel Motherboard)
No need to donwload or install any drivers. Vista has everything built in.
Only thing is it needs atleast 128 Mb of Video Memory, but for older motherboards like Inter 845 by default the Video Memory is configured to 64 Mb which is resulting in your problem.
So what you have to do is...
Restart your computer > Press DEL Key and Go to BIOS Settings > Advanced > Video Configuration
1. Change "AGP Aperture Size" from 64 Mb to "128 Mb or Higher" 2. Leave "Primary Video Adapter" as "Integrated" 3. Change "Frame Buffer Size" from 1 Mb to "8 Mb"
and then press F10(i.e., Save changes and continue).
Sometimes, for the first time you may see screen not aligned properly, in that case just restart once more and Vista will automatically adjust the alignment for you.
Also, you can change the resolution to your desired one manually as follows...
1. Click "Start Button" 2. Right click on "Computer" 3. Select "Properties" option from the context menu. 4. Scroll down and find "Disply Settings" option and click it. 5. Adjust Resolution Size and Mode.
NOW, ENJOY USING VISTA.....
this is normal No-Ram. No-Beep.
The ram is all part of the bios analysis beep codes.
install memory, and setup the board to the manufacturers specification.
1 beep at post is normal on many bioses.
