Question about Foxconn P4M800P7MA-RS2 Motherboard
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
If your RAM was bad or not inserted correctly you would hear four beeps in rapid succession at bootup.
If you have to force a RAM module into place this is not a good sign. Sometimes it is hard to get a RAM module to seat. But so long as you have it aligned correctly you should be okay using force to seat it so long as the clamps lock on the RAM module.
So, if you are not hearing any beeps at bootup and you are using only one RAM module, you probably need to place the single RAM module in a particular slot. You either have two or four slots. In either case when using one RAM module you should move it to another slot or reread your manual that states clearly the RAM module mapping and points out which slot to insert when you are only using a single module.
