Some PCs especially old ones can't have higher RAM. limit it to its own requirement. It has to do with is own BIOS. Old BIOS can't not have higher RAM. Check also if the RAM you've replaced is not defective, if then, replace it with good ones. good luck.

Usually there is a pattern to the beeps, but more than likely it is a problem with the ram you just installed. Where did you get it from? I checked with crucial.com and that is the right type of ram, but you may have a bad stick.

I have a intel 845gvsr board, want to replace a Ram. What type of RAM is suitable for this board?


Your Intel D845GVSR has,

1. Two ram slots.

2.Maximum Amount of ram is 1GB for EACH ram slot.

3.Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GB, (1GB in each ram slot)

4.Uses DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200), OR
DDR Sdram at 533MHz, (PC4200)

This is an example of DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200),

(Not advertising for this website. There are many places to buy ram memory)
512MB + 512MB = 1024MB, or also stated as 1GB
1024MB = 1GB

Yes, it will work. Remember that all memory will operate at the speed of the slowest memory though so unless you're completely replacing the memory it won't increase the speed of the memory.

How to install additional 256 MB memory


You simply just push the memory into the DIMM socket on the motherboard. You need to use DDR SDRAM but should check what your I/O bus speed is set at. They make 4 different types of DDR SDRAM. They are DDR-200 (PC1600). DDR-266 (PC2100). DDR-333 (PC2700) and DDR-400 (PC3200). The following links should help you out:

JUST SHUT DOWN


Does the CPU fan spin when you press the switch? If it doesnt, short the green wire from the power supply with the black one, If the fan still does not spin, the power supply is bad. If it does, the mother board has a problem.

Please get back after this test.
