Question about MSI K8MM-V Motherboard
I changed my memory card from 512 mb to 1 gb, reinserted the stick to the motherboard and now wont turn on. Changed back to original memory stick and still wont start up, just freezes! I have the right memory stick for the motherboard, and had it double check to ensure correct one.
1. Make sure that your computer supports 1Gb on 1 slot.
2. If you touched the chips with your hand you might have BURNED the chips with static electricity from your hands.
3. But before you start panicking check if you have moved the video card, if you did the PC won't show up anything and will halt at start up.
3. One last thing you might do to get the computer booting up again is to remove the CMOS battery for say 1 minute and then put it back in place to reset CMOS just in case. Then plug in your old memory in place turn off replace and try the new one. turn off try install both (never touching the chips on the RAM) and turn on again.
Hope that this helps :)
