Question about Computers & Internet
I tried to upgrade my MB from 12gb of ram to 14gb ram with 2 new moduels that were bad (I tested them in another computer and they wouldn't work) With the bad ram installed, on boot-up I get 3 short beeps telling me I have a memory problem. So i reinstalled the original working modules and now I still get the 3 beeps no matter how I configure the installation I always get 3 beeps. I removed the battery with now power supplied to the MB and also reset cmos and it doesn't make a difference. Could the bad ram effect my bios or possiblly the chipset on my MB.
Try this >>>>
Remove the power cable and lay the computer on its side. Remove all the RAM from the unit ad make sure all the brass contacts are clean. After that take a look at the slots and make sure they are free of any dust.
Plug in the power cable and start putting the RAM back in one at a time turning the machine on with each module to try, that will determine which of the modules maybe faulty, it just maybe a case that you haven't put them in properly.
Good luck and regards.
