ASUS p4b266-c has the capacity of 2Gb of memory. DDR1/PC2100 or PC1600.Do not put higher memory or else it will not work. Only 2 memory slots are available on this kind of board. If you have 2 memory cards, just be sure to put the big memory on the first slot.

For example: If you have 2 memory cards . 1Gbyte and 1(512mb). Put the 1Gbyte on the first slot and 1(512) on the second slot.

Whn iam starting my pc it get start but there in no display and no beep in pc tell mi why this problem coming


Try to check if your memory card is still working properly remove it from it's slot and try to clean it. If you have a spare memory card try it make sure that it is also working. A start up with no beeping sound indicates a memory card or a motherboard problem. Sometime low power voltage output also is the reason. Try to deal with your memory card first. If your memory card is working fine, try to see if your power cable inside your motherboard is connected properly, if it does, sad to say you have a failing motherboard sir, and needs a replacement. Hope this would help you, have a nice day.

Three beeps at interval no thing on monitor. what can i do? ihad just loaded a new os and was working fine.i shut down and change memory stick.turn back on and hear these beeps.re-install origin memory...


Beeps are mainly caused by bad, dusty memory module or the port it is connected to. However, since you have tried changing it with a working one and i suppose you already clean it that's fine. One more hardware which causes beeps is the video card. If you have a video card installed, it may be moved when you change the memory module. I suggest you try to reseat the video card as well..

Hope that works

Beep..beep..beep..(Three times)


check the new memory in all memory slot that u have. use thinner with a art paint brush just past it in the memory slots, just like cleaning them up. then place the memory about some seconds. switch it on. if doesnt work see your graphic card. or try a kingston memory. kingston memory works on almost all motherboard. some others even new, they dont work on some motherboard.

Beeps on start up wont load


Check your Memory, Video card and any other cards installed in your motherboard. Try to remove, clean and put it back again, then check if the beep is still there.

Pc keeps beeping 3 times and nothing on the moniter


remove the RAM(MEMORY CHIPS) from *********** board and reinsert.if the problem is same replace the chips,get new chips.mostly cleaning the golden lines on the chip with pencil/school rubber solves the problem.
No beep is usually a power problem that can be related to the power supply, motherboard or both. Always check your battery power before thinking there is a bigger problem.
Step3
One beep is a normal POST. That means everything is fine. Two, Three, or Four short beeps are normally about the memory of the machine. If there is a problem with one of your memory chips you should get beeps of different combinations in this area. If you get two or three short beeps, one or both of your memory chips could be in trouble.
Step4
Five beeps point toward motherboard or CPU problems. Make sure your memory and video card are seated properly. Try removing them and putting them back in, only if you are comfortable with computers. Six, seven and eight beeps. Eight beeps indicate problems with your video card. Six or Seven are CPU, or a bad chip on the motherboard. Nine beeps mean the BIOS is bad. Replace the motherboard. Ten beeps means the problem is in the CMOS. All chips need to be replaced.
thanks.

I tried to install a new motherboard but it didn't work


Your bios needed to be set with the correct memory speed on your old motherboard or it did not support the memory you added or it was in the wrong memory slot or size. The beeping was telling you it was a memory error. I need more info such as processor and memory speed and type to help. What is your old motherboard? It sound like Bios settings but I need to make sure the memory and processor will work with *********** board.

Beep: 6 seconds on, 3 seconds off


Pull all the cards out. Put in the CPU and fan, just one memory chip, the video card and the hard drive. Plug in just the power supply and the powerbutton switch to motherboard. Don't connect anything but the monitor, mouse and keyboard. If you still get beeps, try another memory chip (just one). I don't know the beep codes for your motherboard so we have to do this one step at a time.
