Got a soltek sl-k8av2 rl upgrading RAM

Not got the manual for the board and I'm taking the ram from 512k to the max 2mb

Getting the single diagnosis beep - I think I need to reset a jumper - any idea how I can either access the manual or what the settings should be?

The motherboard takes DDR 400 ram so make sure you dont put anything higher than this in.

At present i am using 2 x 512MB DIMM's, but am unsure if it will take 2 x 1024MB DIMM's. If it does, it may require a BIOS update (1.6 is the latest but 1.5 is readily available through a google search).

When you get the beep, are you still able to get into the BIOS? It might be worth checking what speed the RAM is set to. It should default to AUTO. If you need to clear your BIOS then look closely at the motherboard for JMPR1/JMP1/CLRCMOS in small white writing on the PCB.

Good luck :]

U have to find the motherbord's manual !!!! U will find there all u need. But most probably u won;t be able to put those processors (the speed diferences are too big, even if they are of the same slot type)

The beep pattern is a beep code and is how the motherboard communicates errors during the early booting process otherwise known as the POST (Power On Self-Test). List restart the computer and listen for the pattern of short and long beeps. Soltek does not list the beep codes in their manual, instead they refer to Phoenix who manufacturers the AwardBIOS on your motherboard. There are only two POST beep codes; a single long beep followed by two short beeps (Video error) and anything else. Apparently anything else you hear *probably* refers to RAM problems. Since you?ve already tested both one of the remaining options is to install a *POST* card (about $30 to $50), boot the PC and read the hexadecimal error code for a more detailed clue to what failed. If you ask around you might find someone who has one and may be willing to loan it to you. Another option is to write off the motherboard since the cost of the test equipment it about 1/3 the cost of a new board. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the posing.
