SOURCE: MSI P7N Diamond board memory problems

this may be a bois issue and you have to go in and make changes to the spd file, epp, xmp, according to an articale i was reading that the guide line setup by the jedec group allow the motherboard manufacture set it up to 800 and anything over 800 will not be recongnized because there is no standard out there the company can go in and change the bandwidth or tweak it and say there chip can produce 1300mhz and the chip may produce 1333mhs, also can go in and adjust the temp. of the cpu and that will change the speed also.

the memory slots on the motherboard are the most important and that is where you want the most ram it can support in the motherboard configuration, when you start trying to use slots 3 and 4 your are making the machine work harder than it should have to. lets say you have a board that allows 4gb per slots and you can use 1 or 2, or both shots you are going to get the best performance with the lesser amount of curcuitry the system has to use, lets say you have motherboard that supports 4 dimm slots and you put 1gb per slot your machine will do 4x more work and slow your system down 4x or even 4fold,

some company are going to tell the custome what they want you to hear. just look at the speed performance over all, more conponet more work for the machine to perform, less componet better performance, memory 1 stick or 4 sticks, just think.

if you are sharing you vedio memory than add 1 gb on top of you system ram.

i have hp notebook it cam with 2gb ram and it can share up to 800 mg vedio ram, so the manufacture said you can either run 3gb or 4gb of memory, the cost between 1 stick of memory pair of match one were about the same price, hp price was about 100.00 dollars, that 100.00 dollars each peace.
kingston same memory memory bought for hp computer manufacture and they put there label on it. kingston memory matching pair or set # are inseqaence or following numbet sets were about 69.00 to 75.00 lifetime warrenty threw kingston verses hp one year from date of i got 2gb x 2 chip total of 4gb daul channel memory.
go on line compair pricing with other venders or type in memory chip in theinternet address bar.

anything over 800 mhz is being considered overclocking.

anything you push beyond the normal operating speed is going to be considered overclocking and void on part from the manufacture so is it worth overclocking to shorten the life of your product.

SOURCE: Bios Beeps during reboot

According to the information at:

AMI beep codes of 1 long and 3 short are, in fact, correctly identified as memory errors. One thing to note is if this memory is Dual Channel, you can only install the memory in groups of two. You must first fill DIMM slot 1 and 3 before filling DIMM slots 2 and 4.

The below website has much more information about your particular motherboard and there's a note about some JEDEC setting for memory that you might want to watch out for or disable to see if it improves stability.

As for Windows XP 32-bit not recognizing more than 3.5 (at most) memory, this is unavoidable. To see all 8 GB, you would need a 64-bit version of Windows. This is something that cannot be altered by BIOS or memory choices, unfortunately. Feel lucky in the fact that you have XP Pro as XP Home will only recognize up to 2.5GB. You'll never utilize all 8GB unless you upgrade your OS, so keep that in mind!

SOURCE: no post to bios on new pc build

FIRST....... Make sure you remove the stock thermal compund (pasty/sticky stuff) from the bottom of the heat sink as well as from the top of the cpu.........

Second APPLY some ARCTIC SILVER 5 compound-ust a thin coat of it over the top of the cpu......use an old credit card.....keep it ff the sides and bottom's important not to use too little tube will do anywhere from 3 to 5 CPUs...!!!
(stock thermal paste/thermal compunds......**** BADLY and can cause a cpu to burn up)

reseat (properly) the cpu and carefull

Now make sure you're 24 pin or 20+4Pin Power connectors are connected, as well as your fans..........disconnect all your SATA Devices, and remove everything but the video card , CPU, and fans.......Now it should post (if all your jumpers are set correctly...........

IF it still doesn't post, remove the video card and reboot.

If it doesn't beep at all......... You have one of 2 things.........A DEAD CPU, or a DEAD MOBO

run memtest 86, test each ram stick, if it shows both as bat, then your mobo;'s memory controller is bad. if neither is bad, then it is your graphix card

Packard bell imedia d3318 no vga signal

It is the video graphics card, or the motherboard, but you can sub out the ram memory one at a time as you test. It might be a bad stick of ram which would rule out the above mentioned

Well first its kind of the same problem but idnk wats wrong everything is new and built from scratch but nothin... it turns on fans spining and etc. but no turn on beep no boot to bios or nothing jus sits...

No beep?
1 Start with making sure all conections are correct,hard drive,dvd,cd,floppy.
2 Check that processor is mounted correctly,remove and do over.
3 Also processor fan.And heatsink.
4 Memory sticks,remove and put back in firmly and secure.If you have 4 memory slots and 2 memory sticks,seperate them.Most slots are color coded white blue white blue or whatever color you may have.So if you have 2 memory sticks put one in white slot,and the other in next white slot.

Im betting you have either processor in wrong or memory in wrong.

Remove everything connected to the PC ie usb devices with the exception of keyboard and mouse. Removing memory and starting a PC will never work it needs it to boot. check all connections are secure especially that the graphics cards are seated in their slots, now try.
The error code you get is related to the graphics card so remove them and clean them up refit and try again. If it still fails remove the link between the cards remove the card you suspect as faulty and boot with just one card. When you find the culprit you can choose to live without it or get it repaired. If you are not into powerful 3D effect games I'd live without it

Dell 4600 no monitor signal

Hey Tony,
If you haven't already: pull all pci cards:
If you pull the ram, and you get no beeps at post, it's likely the main board. Does the pc beep at all? with or without ram? If not, likely the main board. Sorry. Hope this helps...

My Emachines_w2888 will not boot up. I get a, (NO SIGNAL INPUT).

If all you have done is upgrade the memory, take out one stick of memory and see if the computer will start up. If it acts the same way it has been acting, take out the other stick of memory and put the first stick of memory back in. You could have a bad stick of memory. Does the computer make any beeping noises when you try to start it? Those beeps are the BIOS way of telling you there is a problem. One BIOS beep means the system is starting if you have more than one beep, there could be a problem, the number of beeps along with the brand of BIOS will give you a clue as to what the problem is. Once you know the number of beeps and the brand of BIOS you can search the Internet for what the problem might be. Your monitor showing "NO SIGNAL INPUT" is its way of saying "I'm ok but something else is wrong".

Good luck

Continuous Beeping, new PC

Continues short beeps... means a short OR no power OR loose card OR system board.
Test it without the keyboard and mouse too. Just the Processor with heatsink, motherboard, memory and Video card.
Now add the keyboard, no mouse yet.
Check also the voltage of the CMOS Battery it should be 3V.

keep me posted for the result... count also the beeps.
